The weather in the fall can be unpredictable but beautiful. Many people turn to glamping in the fall season because it offers the warmth and comfort of home with the feel and adventure of remote camping. The packing list can vary depending on the style of camping, so we created this list of things to remember when you head out for a fall glamping trip.
In the days leading up to your trip, monitor the forecast for your destination so that you can pack appropriate attire. Most often, you will glamp in a more accommodating location, but you still want to enjoy the features of regular camping. Things like outdoor experiences and bonfires will require you to pack fall-appropriate gear. Consider the following:
- All-weather boots
- Wool socks
- Comfortable utility pants
- Base layers
- A light rain jacket
Personal Hygiene Belongings
Another perk of glamping compared to camping is the luxury of having daily amenities within arm’s reach. Some glampers go all out and will invest in portable shower trailers, which allow for comfort and ease while keeping your personal hygiene habits intact. However, the only essentials you need to remember are your bath supplies, toilet paper, and any other items that assist in your personal hygiene.
You will have moments of downtime where you’re gathered around a fire or enjoying the campsite in peace. So consider bringing along some easy and light entertainment.
Think about all the things you wish you had time for at home, like reading, playing board games, or flying a kite. Also, factor in if your children are tagging along, and remember to pack things that they can enjoy.
Your outdoor gear for glamping will mimic the outdoor gear you bring while camping. Because no matter how or where you rest your head at night, the great outdoors is always the same.
Ensure you remember sunscreen in your preferred SPF, bug spray, an umbrella, and sunglasses. But then factor in the extras that help you enjoy being outdoors, such as a hat, specific footwear, or swim gear. Some fall locations remain on the warm side, so you can still go swimming.
Food and Beverage Options
It’s not the location’s responsibility to ensure you eat, so remember to pack plenty of food and beverage options. Depending on the accommodations and local area, you may have to cook your meals, or you could eat out. Consider packing your favorite snacks and a refillable water bottle to help sustain you.
Hopefully, with this list of things to remember for a fall glamping trip, you’ll feel more at ease about taking the time away and enjoying the weather. Every packing list will vary depending on the needs and preferences of the people attending, but with these basics, you know that your experience will create lifelong memories.
