Some may see the end of summer as the end of camping season, but others search for fall camping destinations to sneak in a few more camping trips before winterizing their camper or RV for the year. Fall RV camping in the northeast is a great way to see the beautiful fall foliage, enjoy the crisp cool air, and experience the numerous pumpkin patches, apple orchards, parks, and attractions the region offers. Planning a camping trip to the northeast United States is an excellent destination for your fall outdoor adventure, and we have the top three RV parks to enjoy your fall camping getaway in New England.
1. Acadia National Park
If you are planning a fall RV camping trip to the northeast to experience the stunning colors of autumn, starting your adventure in Bar Harbor, Maine, is a must. Bar Harbor is home to the well-loved Acadia National Park, which provides excellent camping for those needing to relax and recharge in nature. According to the National Park Service, the around 50,000-acre park offers three different campgrounds for RVers along the rocky headlands by the Atlantic coastline. The per-night cost for non-electric RV sites is $30 and $36 for electric sites at Schoodic Woods.
The majority of campsites at Blackwoods Campground located within Acadia National Park can only accommodate tents. There are around 60 non-electric RV-friendly sites. The RV sites vary from max lengths of 20 feet and 35 feet. Each site offers a picnic table and a fire ring, and there are flush toilets, water, and a dump station in the campground.
Located on the west side of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park, Seawall Campground is a family-friendly destination. Camping at Seawall Campground provides peace in a wooded setting and within walking distance to the ocean. The campground offers numerous tent sites and 59 campsites accommodating RVs up to 35 feet. However, it’s important to note that maneuvering RVs in Seawall Campground can be difficult, so be sure to carefully review the site details and warnings before booking your trip. All sites are non-electric and feature a fire ring and picnic table.
Schoodic Woods Campground
Located on the Schoodic Peninsula, the campground is only a 15-minute walk from the ocean. This RV campground in Acadia National Park is the only one featuring some sites with 50 amp electric hookups. B-Loop (approx. 30 sites) in Schoodic Woods Campground offers both electric and water hookups.

While offering plenty of activities to pass the time, it is also within an hour’s drive to Six Flags and Fort Ticonderoga in New York.
