When you think of camping your brain probably jumps to summer days spent enjoying the great outdoors or crisp fall nights spent around the campfire under a blanket of stars, but we’re here to tell you that you should not sleep on spring camping.
Here are just a few reasons why you should start your camping season earlier.
Get Back Outside
You’ve been cooped up on the couch all winter and your camp chairs haven’t seen the light of day for months. Why wait until summer? Get yourself back into the outdoors as soon as possible. Take a deep breath of fresh air and feel that winter fog melt away. It’s good for the soul.
If you’re a bargain shopper then spring camping is for you. You’ll see some of the lowest rates during the beginning of the season and if you book during Cyber Monday or beginning of the year sales you’ll save even more.
If you’re the type of person who always books last-minute spring is perfect for you. You can wait and watch the weather forecast or procrastinate a bit and still get a great site because it’s a less busy time of the year.
The fear of bad weather keeps a lot of people from camping in the spring, so you’ll have plenty of room to spread out at the campground. Book a stay on an RV site, in an RV rental or in a cabin so that even if you do run into bad weather you can still have a cozy, relaxing time inside. Keep this rainy day guide in your back pocket so you don’t have to hunt for things to do if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
Okay, yes, spring can be rainy and chilly, but you know what happens when it’s not rainy and chilly? It’s gorgeous and mosquito-free. Spring can be a gamble, but when it pays off it pays off.
Watch the World Come Back to Life
Fall is a nice time to be outside, but it carries a note of finality as nature winds down for the year. When you book a spring camping trip you can experience the energy of watching everything burst back into life. It’s the perfect antidote to a long, dreary winter and it’s a great time for observing spring plants, migratory birds and other wildlife.
Are you the type of person who likes to hold babies for about two minutes and then hand them back to their parents? Spring camping is for you. With kids and parents both just trying to make it to the end of the school year the campground will be almost kid-free in the spring.
