Now that autumn is officially upon us, we’re excited to announce the launch of our 2018 Fall Foliage Map & filter, updated to help travelers discover Hipcamps where they can experience the most vibrant fall leaves based on this year’s weather patterns (collected by the fine folks over at SmokyMountains.com). Take a peek at the filter below:
For many places across the US, fall is the perfect time to get outside with fewer crowds and crisp, lovely weather, which tend to make for happier times than summer’s more congested, buggy days. To use the map, simply click on the leaves filter at the top of the discover page and adjust the slider to see prime leaf-peeping regions across the country. Flannel, campfire s’mores, stargazing — here we come!
Some of our favorite Hipcamps to check out this fall:

Set along the Winooski River where you can park your RV or pitch your tent in an apple orchard, by a pond, or in a high meadow. Walk along the historic, tree-lined rail bed, fish for brown trout in the river, and enjoy hot showers and campfires.
