1. Pack Plenty of Layers

When you’re packing for a fall camping trip, you’ll need to plan for fluctuating temperatures throughout the day. The best way to deal with these changes is by packing layers of clothing. The following list is an example of some of the basics you should plan to take on your fall camping trip.

  • A jacket or hoodie
  • Wool socks
  • T’shirts
  • Jeans
  • Long johns or leggings
  • Long sleeve shirts
  • A raincoat
  • Gloves or mittens
  • A warm hat
  • And plenty of changes of clothes.

2. Additional Fuel

Whether your RV has a propane tank for cooking and heating or you’ve brought along a camp stove, taking additional fuel is a good idea. Most campgrounds will have refueling stations, but it can be more expensive than bringing your own supply. Additionally, the colder nights often drain propane for RVs faster since the furnace will use it to keep your RV warm all night.

3. Emergency Kit

It’s always a good idea to have an emergency kit prepared before you leave the house. This kit should include headlamps and flashlights, matches or a waterproof lighter, duct tape, toilet paper, and basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer, scissors, etc.


4. Make Food Ahead

Because of the chilly mornings and evenings during the autumn, you’ll probably want to plan your meals ahead of time so that you don’t have to try and cook in the cold. There are plenty of online recipes for make-ahead camping meals that you can keep in a cooler or the refrigerator and heat up when you’re ready to eat!

5. A First Aid Kit

Having a first aid kit on hand in your camper is a great way to take care of any bumps and bruises you might get around the campground. If you’re camping with kids, be sure to pack extra band-aids!
