Fall is one of the best times of year to hit the road in your RV. The roads are less crowded, campgrounds are more serene and the fall colors provide scenery that can’t be rivaled in any other time of year. Fire up your RV and cruise throughout the country to these three unbeatable fall road trip destinations.
Old Forge — New York
Old Forge, a small town on New York State Route 28 at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains, is a charming haven for fall foliage lovers. Dine in cute cafes, canoe the rivers, hike the mountains or simply enjoy the scenic drives loaded with brightly-colored trees. About 45-percent of the trees have changed colors as of Sept. 21, 2015, so the scenery will only get more beautiful throughout the remainder of September and October.
Harpers Ferry — West Virginia
Harpers Ferry is a charming West Virginia town that becomes surrounded by vibrant leaves in the fall months. Take in the fall colors while tubing along a river, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding, biking, rafting or on an exhilarating canopy tour. The historic town serves as an ideal place to relax and enjoy an award-winning meal after a day of adventure and snapping photos.
San Juan Mountains — Colorado
Colorado’s San Juan Mountains offer a different type of fall foliage — the mystifying bright yellows of the oaks and aspens. The Silver Thread Scenic and Historic Byway and San Juan Skyway are driving routes that are just waiting for you and your RV. The colors peak in the San Juan Mountains in October, so start making your campground reservations today.
