Kick off a Fall season camping trip in the trails of Pennsylvania

Enjoy fewer crowds, great scenery and crisp, clear fall weather

Fall foliage isn’t just for New Englanders. What better way to kick off the school year than to pack up the family in your fifth wheel camper or toy hauler and explore the beauty of the season? With plenty of midwestern RV friendly campsites just waiting for visitors this time of year, you’ll enjoy fewer crowds, great scenery and crisp, clear fall weather anywhere you decide on. And because nothing says fall like football season…consider the State College region of Pennsylvania for your autumn sojourn. Seven Mountains Campground and Cabins is one of our favorite fifth wheel camper destinations open year round. With Penn State University’s campus minutes away, you’ll also find hunting, bicycling, and fishing nearby, along with some of the most beautiful fall scenery in the area.

Home to many fascinating documentary screenings and lecture


For those who might not be interested in football or autumn leaves, don’t forget the State College region also is home to the Pennsylvania Military Museum and is itself along the Pennsylvania Trail of History, which is alone worth a fifth wheel camper vacation, frankly.  The Military Museum is host to many fascinating documentary screenings and lectures, as well as information and artifacts on our country’s participation in the wars from 1747 to the present day. 

Ephrata Cloister is among the sites this Trail of History has to offer

 Once you’ve checked out the museum, take your fifth wheel camper and your family to visit the historic sites along the aforementioned Pennsylvania Trail of History-it’s a great way to explore 300 years of America through battlefield memorials, rural farms preserved to look as they did a century ago, and the grand houses of years past, with their significant collections of period furniture, art and textiles. With lots of RV campsites fully equipped with hookups for your fifth wheel camper along the way, you can relax between adventures. But with Daniel Boone’s homestead, the Eckley Miner’s Village, and an Amish community near the Ephrata Cloister among the sites this Trail of History has to offer, you won’t rest for long!
