Utah Fall camping is filled with gorgeous colors as the local aspen trees change from their vibrant green colors to brilliant gold and red. Hot summer temperatures drop to a more moderate climate, and the crisp mountain air makes for perfect hiking conditions.

Utah is home to 7 National Forests, all of which house various free and fee camping sites for your Utah Fall camping adventures. Lost Campers has the perfect Campervan rental at unreal prices for you to enjoy these breathtaking pockets of nature!

Uinta National Forest is home to the beautiful Timpanogos Wilderness. A truly breathtaking sight is the Timpanogos Caves National Monument. The caves are only open until October, so be sure to visit them soon! Despite being so close to nearby cities, campers can enjoy a real separation from the busy world outside with a true ability to get back to nature while exploring the Timpanogos Wilderness. Renting a Lost Campers Campervan gives you the freedom to get away from the city, while still maintaining mobility for easy travel between campsite destinations.

Lost Campers proudly sponsors the Ogden Music Festival & Utah Festival Camping!

Lost Campers Salt Lake City kicked off the summer by sponsoring the 9th annual Ogden Music Festival. Ogden is a lovely city about 40 minutes north of SLC. This event is presented by the Ogden Friends Of Acoustic Music every year, or as we Utah locals like to call them…OFOAM.   The festival is growing in popularity each year and we here at Lost Campers were excited to show our support. OFOAM has a mission to expose local youth to acoustic music and traditional instrument playing. The event flourished with families and fun as a variety of great bands played for the 3 day shindig held at Fort Buenaventura State Park along the beautiful Weber River. This is Utah Festival camping at it’s best!

I, my husband and 8 year old son worked as a family team and set up a Hotel Sierra camper van in the vendor row to show festival goers how fantastic campervan rentals are for music festivals! Rae Rae the van stirred up curiosity from everyone there. As no could resist the charm of our cozy camper van, we met loads of wonderful people and volunteers of the festival. It was so cool letting people know about Lost Campers and what we do.

Volunteering & Utah festival Camping

One of the things I thought to be truly awesome about the Ogden Music Festival is that the entire thing is volunteer based. People from the community and surrounding areas pour their hearts into this event. There were excellent food vendors and the local brewery, Roosters was serving up some cold ones. There was excellent camping on site in the State Park along the river. Also, an entire area along a lovely fishing pond was dedicated to fun and music education for kids that included an “instrument petting zoo” where kids can get their hands on any instrument they are curious about, get their faces painted or throw down some competitive bean bag tossing. There was also a booth to make your own washtub base instruments that my son absolutely loved.  A bunch of kids got on stage and played their hand made instruments with the Hogslop String Band for the big crowd on Saturday, it was awesome! Along with the music, food and handmade jewelry booths there were places to ride your bike and walk along the river.  On the second day they held bike races for various age groups!

With so many great vendors at the event, I of course had to check out what everyone had to offer and I discovered some fantastic local artists and companies. One of my favorites was Outdoor Gangster, a local Ogden based outdoor hand printed apparel company. These guys were super cool and I absolutely love the T-shirts we purchased from them. Through their apparel company they promote a love of nature and the outdoors. They have a website and fun blog  that is definitely worth checking out: outdoorgangster.com

Fall Utah Camping Tips

Fall Utah camping is a the BEST time to get away for a relaxing vacation without the large crowds that the popular summer season draws in. Utah summer temperatures drop September through November, making the days delightful for hikers that want to explore the many trails that the mountain and desert environments have to offer. And to help you save money, many campervan and RV rental companies (especially Lost Campers) have lower rental rates during Fall.  Here’s some great Fall Utah camping recommendations.

Utah is famous for 5 great National Parks (affectionately called the Mighty 5) and over 40 State parks. Of course Utah makes for a wonderful get away any time of year, but the fall season just can’t be beat. In the mountains, the Quaking Aspens turn from their gorgeous green to bright orange and yellow. It’s a sight one can only truly appreciate in person. Down south, the hot desert temperatures become more bearable for those daytime treks to see the many canyons, caves, and natural geological phenomena that Utah has to offer.

Fall Meteor Showers Best Seen while Camping in Utah

Every year the Draconids Meteor Shower peak at about October 7th and 8th, and many of Utah’s National Parks have spectacular clear night skies that provide a glimpse at outer space that you just can’t find in more populous areas. Unlike many other meteor showers, the best time to view the Draconids is just after sunset, before nightfall. All you have to do is lie down, get comfy, and watch the sky overhead.
