“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
To me, camping in the fall is much more enjoyable than camping in the summer. You don’t have to deal with mosquitos, humidity, or high temperatures. The warmth of the fire is cozy and the cool weather makes for a good night’s sleep. Last weekend AJ and I drove up north to Hickory Run State Park for one last weekend getaway. The leaves had started to change up there which provided a beautiful scenery for hiking. We visited the infamous Boulder Field and a nearby lake. If you’re looking to go camping near Philadelphia, this spot is only 2 hours away. Here are a few photos from our trip.
We stayed at site #310, but it was a little too close to the road. We could still hear cars driving by at night and during the day, so I’d recommend booking a site that’s situated further in. They also have sections for dog-friendly camping and RV camping.
