Campgrounds across California will soon transition into fall activities ranging from salmon fishing to outdoor music concerts, Oktoberfest and Halloween themed events, reports the state’s Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
“Every year, campgrounds offer more and more activities and entertainment in September, October and November to keep people coming back and each year the shoulder season gets a little bit busier,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, the travel planning website.
Indeed, fall events at some campgrounds are already sold out, including three Halloween themed weekends at 49er Village RV Resort in Plymouth. Activities include campsite decorating contests and trick or treating. Further south, the San Diego KOA in Chula Vista is already sold out for Thanksgiving Week, with activities that include hay rides and tie dye t-shirt making.
“As long as campgrounds offer fun things for people to do, they will continue to camp right through the shoulder season,” Sipe said.
