Fall Camping Tips

Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean camping season has to end just yet. The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are changing, making for a brand new experience at your favorite campgrounds. Here are a few tips for making the most out of your fall camping trip. 

 

Find out if the campsite is open 

If this is your first time camping in the fall, make sure to do your research. Find out if the campsite you were planning on is open, and if there is any information about the expected weather conditions during your trip.

Pack lots of layers 

This goes for clothes and blankets. The weather may be nice during the day, but will surely get very cold at night. Bring several layers of clothes, including warms hats, socks and jackets. It’s also wise to bring a rain coat in case it sprinkles or winds are high. Pack several blankets so that you can pile them on or peel them off as the weather requires.  

 

Bring a tarp or two 

In the event of an unexpected downpour, it’s a good idea to have a couple of tarps on hand to cover any belongings that are out in the open. Pack rope as well to string your tarps from the trees and create a waterproof shelter.  

 

Plan all-weather activities 

Sure, go ahead and bring that soccer ball and your bikes. But keep in mind that if it rains more than you planned for, your family is in for some quality bonding time in the tent. Bring card games, board games and books to keep yourselves entertained until the skies clear.  

 

Stay heated and hydrated 

It’s easy to forget to drink enough water when it’s chilly outside and the thought of an ice cold drink sounds a little painful. Make sure you have lots of warm liquids on hand like hot tea, cider and even hot cocoa!  

 

If you take the time to plan for the season, fall camping can be an incredible experience. We must admit, Broken Bow is beautiful this time of year! Plan your fall camping trip now.

Tips and Tricks for Your Next RV Trip

Has it been awhile since you took the RV out for a spin? Or maybe you took it out last weekend, but things didn’t go so smoothly. Here are a few easy tricks to make your next RV trip the best yet.

Storage 

Storing everything you need safely can be a challenge in an RV, with limited space and the movement of driving to think about. We know you’d rather spend less time packing and more time enjoying your trip, so try a few of these tips: 

  • Hang shoe racks anywhere and everywhere. These handy little storage racks can hold anything from shampoo to canned good to, well, shoes. And since they hang, they won’t take up limited floor space.  

  • Use non-slip liners in your shelves. Nothing is worse than turning a corner and hearing glass break inside a cabinet. By using a non-slip liner, your favorite dishes and drink wear will be safe and sound.  

 

Organization and Safety 

Staying safe and organized should be a top concern of yours on every RV trip. Here are a few suggestions to make your trip safer and less stressful: 

  • Keep all your electrical adapters in one easy place by mounting them on a wall with hooks or a rack. This way you’ll be able to find exactly which cord you need, right when you need it.  

  • Store a small white board in the cupboard. When you get to your campsite, write down the address of your location and your phone number. If you have an emergency, your important information will be right there.  

What better place to try out these tips than Broken Bow, Oklahoma? Dust off that old RV and take it for a spin this weekend. Just a short trip from Dallas, the beautiful wilderness and variety of adventures to be had in Broken Bow are calling your name.
