Many people raise an eyebrow at the thought of camping in this cooler, and sometimes wetter, time of the year but trust me, those people don’t know what they are missing! Every year fall captures our hearts and wins the prize for the best camping season of the year, and here’s why!
With the kids back at school and the summer campers safely back at home, some of the best camping spots are now up for grabs. Whether you are looking for a wilderness spot or a camping spot at one of the more popular provincial park campgrounds you will be more likely to find exactly what you’re looking for on Vancouver Island in this season.
Hallelujah, it’s that time of year again! Vancouver Island has an incredible craft beer scene and we’re very lucky to have a host of local breweries all creating seasonal beers. With pumpkin ales, stouts and porters back on the menu, a fall camping trip cries out for a day of adventurous activity followed by some R&R at the local brewery.
With the warm(ish) days and cool nights, comfort foods are at front and centre of the fall camping menu. Let your mornings begin with hot coffee and a hearty breakfast and if you are looking for a chilled afternoon pottering around camp then we really recommend setting up a nice slow cooked beef stew in a cast iron pot over the fire.
The salmon spawning season is a fall spectacle, but it also has the added benefit of bringing other wildlife to the rivers. During September and October, you will find that eagles and black bears are readily seen along Vancouver Island's rivers and if you are on the Ocean, our northern resident orcas also follow the salmon run.
When it comes to exploring the fall colours and foliage you do not have to venture far to witness the trees turning brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red. On the island Tofino looks particularly spectacular in the fall, as does Port Renfrew. So, pack your boots and get ready to kick your feet in the great leaf piles!
