It’s always sad to see the summer months seemingly slip away, but the start of school and cooler weather mean that fall has finally arrived! We love camping at every season, but fall camping brings in new activities and scenery that we don’t get during the rest of the year. Keep reading to see why we can’t get enough of fall camping!

1. Leaves Change Colors

Fall foliage never gets old! Camping while the leaves change color is an almost magical experience as you get to enjoy the picturesque scenery of fall in Maryland! Take in the crisp autumn air and take a stroll through the orange, yellow, and red leaves before they’re gone!

2. Shoulder Season Rates

Who doesn’t like to save a couple bucks? Take advantage of Jellystone Park’s lower prices and reduced rates by camping post-Labor Day. We also have tons of great packages like our Fall Camp & Store to help you save even more!

3. No Bugs

Say goodbye to pesky flies, mosquitos, and all other nagging, summer insects! Enjoy the outdoors in comfort without worrying about coating yourself with bug spray and lighting tiki torches.

4. Less Crowded

With everyone back in school, there’s less time for families to head out and go camping for the weekend. This means that those who do make the trek to Jellystone Park™ practically have the campground to themselves! With less people around, you and your family can have the great outdoors to yourself!

5. Cooler Temps

Escape the hot Maryland sun and opt for fall camping! With crisp temperatures in the day, and cool temperatures in the evening, you’ll be able to throw on a sweater and stay warm during the day and cuddle up with blankets at night with no need to crank up the AC!

6. Halloween

The fun never stops during fall at Jellystone Park™! Our October weekends are filled with trick or treating, site decorating contests, pumpkin painting,  haunted trails, and so much more! Be sure to book your site/cabin soon – there are only a handful left!
