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.
