Just because the temperatures start to drop doesn’t mean you have to put your camping rig in storage. Campsites are quieter and views are snowy—it’s a wonderful time to cozy up in nature. Just make sure your RV is ready for the trip.
You can almost picture the wagon trains rolling across Kansas, where wheat and alfalfa wave like a golden ocean all the way to the horizon. Start your Kansas camping vacation in Topeka and catch a glimpse of the state’s prairie roots at the nearby 10,000-acre Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, part of the gently rolling Flint Hills. Then turn your RV toward the wide-open vistas along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway. In west Kansas, soft rock known as Niobrara Chalk has eroded into bright-white turrets and other unusual landmarks like Monument Rocks.
