Outdoor Activities for Fall

Untitled design-197.png

When the weather changes from hot summer days to the cool days of fall, it’s the perfect time to seek out ways to get outside and enjoy the day. We’ve gathered some great ideas for outdoor activities for fall. Yes, you can enjoy these excursions anytime of the year, but there’s just no comparison to the Autumn season.

Outdoor Activity Ideas for Fall

Take a walk with your camera - The crisp air, changing foliage, and wildlife preparing for winter make for plenty to see and photograph when you get out and plan a walk along a local trail on a fall day. Whether you bring a field guide for identifying all you encounter, or simply want to get out into the changing environment, enjoying and photographing the highlights of the season is a great idea!

Plan a hike - Seek out your local trails and plan an excursion with friends. Not only will being outdoors in the seasonal air feel great, but hiking is a fantastic way to move ever closer to your fitness goals. Active.com offers some great tips for preparing.

Camping - We think camping is a great idea no matter what time of year it is, but the cooler, dryer weather during the fall means less bugs and less people. Stay warm and comfortable with cold weather hammock gear as suggested by eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com

Fly a kite - The blustery days make for perfect kite flying weather. Farmersalmanac.com suggests making your own from two long sticks, paper and string. Need instructions? We found this great pin for help.

Collect leaves, nuts and foliage - Whether you’re looking to decorate your home with signs of the season, or plan to guide your little ones in festive arts and crafts, it can be fun to collect some autumn color to bring home with you. Need ideas for how to preserve your collection? Redtedart.com offers 6 different ways to keep what you’ve collected looking beautiful. (SIX different ways!)

Fishing - Why not give fishing a try? A relaxing day in the fall sunshine can be even more enjoyable when you sit along the water in the hopes of your first catch. Active.com offers tips for the beginning fisher.

Ready to plan that camping trip? Take advantage of the “off” season and enjoy the outdoors with no crowds and our winter rates.

How to Get Your RV Ready for Cold Weather

Adventures in your RV might be most common in the warm summertime months, but just because Summer is gone doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the joys of RVing. It will take a little bit of preparation, but you really can enjoy your RV year-round. We found useful tips and videos to share with you for winterizing both the outside and the inside of your RV.

Tips for Getting Your RV Ready for Cold Weather

From windows to wheels and everything in between, there are ways to make your RV suitable and comfortable for using beyond the warm months of summer. We found several people who offered tried and true advice for keeping you and your RV adventuring throughout the year.

GonewiththeWynns.com not only offers advice for winterrizing your RV, but they shot a couple of videos to share that show them in the thick of a Colorado winter feeling cozy and warm . You can watch their video on getting the outside of your RV ready for cold weather here.  And when you’re ready to make the inside feel like home and keep the humidity levels down you can click here to watch those tips. We particularly like their money-saving tip of using snow for skirting your undercarriage.

A lot of heat can be lost through your windows and vents. Byexample.com offers some great tips for window treatments and insulating your windows and vents. Both of these will help keep the warm air inside and the cold air outside. Using their insulating tips can help save energy and money! Check out their DIY for insulating vent pillows: http://bit.ly/2b9GVen

It’s important to remember your water and sewer lines when you get your RV ready for cold weather. RVing Guide gives great tips on preparing both of these before the temperatures drop. Their simple tip for using PVC pipe, instead of the standard “slinky style” hose for your winter sewer line is just one of their great insulating ideas.

RV Camping vs. Tent Camping

Anyone who considers themselves a camper has strong opinions about the best ways to make every aspect of the adventure happen. Probably one of the biggest arguments is whether or not RV camping is “real” camping and whether or not tent campers have the upperhand on the camping experience.

We will stay neutral because we love ALL the campers and cater to both preferences. But just for fun, we thought we’d list some of the things that make each camping style awesome for those who choose it.  

Let’s start with RV camping:

  • An RV gives you the comforts of home and the experience of the great outdoors
  • Everything you need can be at your fingertips
  • There’s room for packing enough supplies for an extended stay
  • The RV means keeping the littlest campers safe and comfortable for naps and nighttime

But then there’s Tent camping:

  • You can pitch a tent almost anywhere. Check out these great spots in CA!
  • Get totally unplugged! This is the perfect way to truly step away from the regular routine.
  • Wanna get away and not break the bank? Tent camping can be inexpensive.
  • Looking for a temporary and beautiful step outside of your comfort zone? Pack your tent and supplies and hit the road!

No matter how you choose to experience some time away, we have a camping spot waiting for you to enjoy!

Call us and reserve your spot today (559) 897-2885

Clean up and Upgrades to the Property!

The last few months have had us cleaning up and getting everything ready for all of YOU!

The rain is doing wonders so far! We spent the month of November topping and trimming trees and removing mistletoe. The trees and other natural growth loved all the rain, which gave us plenty to cut back and clean up. That means plenty of firewood! We also did half the park with asphalt grindings, so it should be less dusty this year.

We can’t wait to show you! Have you booked your camping trip yet? Summer may seem far away, but it will be here before you know it! Call us today to make your reservation
