September 2, 2020 | Permalink
Finding activities this fall may seem challenging, but with thousands of acres to explore at our parks, you can spread out and enjoy the fall season to the fullest. To inspire your fall adventures, we've put together ten activities that anyone can try:
1. Cozy up in a cabin
Fall is officially cabin season. Mountainside or lakeside, you can't go wrong with a cozy weekend getaway.
2. Take in the fall colors somewhere new
Venture out to a new park to embrace the fall foliage. If you're wondering where to go and when to see the best colors, our fall foliage blog can help you out.
3. Take a camping trip
The crisp air and slim crowds make fall the perfect season for a camping trip.
4. Craft the perfect s' more
The perfect s' more is just one camping trip and a couple of handfuls of marshmallows away.
5. Have a picnic
Fewer bugs and cooler temps make early fall one of the best times to enjoy a meal outdoors. We'll even do the cooking for you! Check out our list of park restaurants offering take-out.
6. Learn a new skill
From birding to fiddling classes lead by our talented park Rangers and staff, you can hone in on a new craft with our park programs.
7. Try a guided hike
Is that plant poisonous, what kind of animal made that, there are how many types of mushrooms? These are all questions that can be answered by a Ranger on a guided hike! Join us for our upcoming National Public Lands Day guided hikes across the state or find one to join on our event calendar below.
8. Cook over the open fire
There's nothing like enjoying a warm meal cooked over an open flame on a crisp autumn night. Check out our turkey apple chili recipe.
