5 Reasons To Love After-summer Camping at ARR
Summer will soon fade to Fall bringing many reasons for booking a fun seasons-changing stay at ARR. With school in session, families enjoy Fall weekend camping. And kids love the autumn outdoors. Don’t deprive yourself of last-chance camping before the long winter sets in!
Here are 5 reasons to make Fall camping reservations.
1. BEAUTIFUL SCENERY
Fall is picturesque at ARR. Already we see hints of leaves changing color. In mid-September Coloma Valley will start its Autumn display in earnest. In October birds begin to migrate, critters busy themselves before colder weather, and the first rains bring green to the hills and moss covered trees and rocks.
2. GREAT WEATHER
September is comfortably warm here with daytime temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s. (Check the current weather at ARR or get a 10-day forecast.) September is normally all blue skies with rainfall not beginning until mid to late October. If you’ve camped only in hot summer weather, you’re in for a pleasant ARR Fall experience!
3. FALL CAMPING FUN
Whitewater rafting continues into September, but there’s plenty else to do. Get maximum enjoyment of the changing seasons by combining camping with walking or biking (trail info). Fishing, music festivals, living-history reenactments, winery events, and harvest festivals add to the list of nearby Fall activities campers enjoy.
4. FEWER CAMPERS
Fall camping is peaceful with typically 50-70% fewer campers at ARR, and you’re likely to reserve your favorite campsite with ease. Know why retired folks travel a lot in early Fall? They know the secret of great weather combined with less crowded roads and destinations. Come enjoy some serenity along the river.
5. COOL EVENINGS, CRISP MORNINGS
The chill of Fall evenings means cozier campfires and comfort food like dutch oven stews and hot cocoa for sipping under the stars. At night you’ll want to snuggle your kids or significant other for a long restful sleep. In the morning, watch the sun rise as you clutch your warm mug, steam rising into the fresh morning air.
