Why You Should Plan a Camping Trip to the Adirondacks This Fall
There is no better view come autumn than the trees in New York state. The Adirondacks is often one of the first regions in the state to reach peak fall foliage displaying brilliant combinations of yellow, orange, red, and brown leaves. Imagine being on a campground in the Adirondacks once all of the leaves have turned, and waking up in the morning to crisp fall air and gorgeous views — it’s impossible not to smile on a morning like that.
The Adirondacks are bursting with liveliness in the fall, with plenty of festivals, shows, and holiday happenings that are available for the entire family.
Camping in the Adirondacks is the best way to access all of the scheduled events that the area has in store, but also to see the natural beauty of the upstate New York region. You could hike Mount Marcy, New York’s highest peak, which reaches 5,344 feet. You could also go fishing or canoeing while the weather is still mild.
At Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Camp-Resort in North Hudson, there are cabin rentals that offer communal activities, like crafts, hay rides, karaoke, bonfires, and marshmallow roasts, which are perfect for children and parents alike.
During this fall season, the campsite will host many seasonal events, like a scare-free pumpkin patch Halloween event, where campers can parade the grounds in costume, plant a seed in the pumpkin patch, go trick or treating, paint pumpkins and drink apple cider! If you’re interested in a more traditional approach, there is a scarier Halloween bash, where kids scare the adults by setting up their very own haunted houses with the help of the campground staff.
In October, we host a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner to pay homage to our neighbors to the north, complete with a grounds supplied turkey and side dishes from each family. What’s a better way to celebrate the holiday than with your neighbors and family?
Jellystone offers a variety of cabin rentals that accommodate parties of all sizes and lifestyles, as well as campsite rentals for those who bring their RVs or prefer to sleep in a tent beneath the stars.
