While I do love fall camping because of the smaller crowds and the beautiful scenery, if you’re not a seasoned camper, you may be hesitant to try it due to the unpredictability in temperature and precipitation during this time of year. If you don’t have a RV or travel trailer, it may be that the idea of sleeping in a tent makes you just a little too uncomfortable. Fortunately for myself and people like me, there are other options to pitching a tent in the forest.
Many campgrounds now offer cabin rentals. And, depending on the level “roughing-it” you desire, you can rent anything from a rustic cabin to a deluxe cottage. There is a great site, NYCabinRentals.com that lets you search for cabin rentals in different areas of New York State – and you can even reserve the rental online, making the process extremely simple!
You can find these cabin rentals in the middle of the woods or near a quiet lake depending on what you’re looking to do. And, most of these campgrounds offer a ton of amenities – just check a campground’s description or brochure to see what they offer. Some of these amenities include:
- Mini golf
- Hiking trails
- Hay rides
- Indoor pools
- The list goes on…
Also, cabin rentals are available all across New York State, so if you’re looking to visit a particular area to check out some of the fall festivals or other fall activities, there is most likely a cabin for rent available nearby. In addition, if you are interested in fall foliage and change of leaf colors by region, check out this fall foliage report tracking the amount of change and providing details on predicted changes. To find cabin rentals in the areas you’d like to visit, just search on the region you are looking to explore and you’ll find a listing of available cabin rentals in that area.
If you’re looking to book a cabin for this fall, you’ll need to hurry as many campground’s cabin seasons end in mid-October. Don’t miss out!
