Spacious Skies Campgrounds presents an unmatched adventure with its Fall Color Trail. This panoramic journey offers explorers a scenic odyssey through 15 campgrounds from Maine to Georgia, meticulously curated to showcase the vibrant fall foliage in its peak splendor as it moves from the North to the South.
Starting in the tranquil landscape of north-central Maine at the Spacious Skies Balsam Woods, this leaf-peeping expedition kicks off as early as September.
The expedition concludes at the latest addition to the Spacious Skies family, Savannah Oaks in Savannah, Georgia, where the fiery hues of autumn linger well into November. The trail, spanning a whopping 2,500 miles, guides travelers along a picturesque route that meanders through the season’s vibrant palette.
For those looking for more value from their travels, Spacious Skies offers its unique Loyalty Program known as Cosmic Campers.
This exclusive club provides members a 12% discount on all reservations for RV sites, cabins, and glamping. The $31.90 annual membership, symbolizing the company’s inception date (March 19, 2021), opens up avenues to exclusive Cosmic Camper merchandise, timely updates about the Spacious Skies locations, and curated programs.
While only a few lucky travelers may afford to take a nearly three-month vacation to visit all 15 locations, there are ample ways for regional RVers and glampers to relish in the seasonal spectacle on a smaller scale. The trail is particularly popular among snowbirds from Canada and the northern states who are keen to kickstart their warm-weather winter adventures.
“Fall-color enthusiasts will find abundant places along the trail to enjoy the color no matter when in the season they are traveling,” said Ali Rasmussen, co-founder of Spacious Skies Campgrounds.
“In September, the maples, birches and oaks at campgrounds in Maine and New Hampshire are bursting with color. And by late October and November, the oak and hickory forests in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Georgia have turned stunning shades of red, copper and yellow.”
This initiative is not only a unique way to experience the transition of seasons but also provides an insight into the potential for private campground owners or operators.
With the increasing popularity of camping and glamping, developing unique, thematic trails like the Fall Color Trail can help differentiate a campground and make it a destination rather than just a stopover. This creates value by not only increasing occupancy but also extending the camping season, which can traditionally wind down after the summer months.
Moreover, the Spacious Skies Campgrounds experience extends beyond admiring the splendid fall foliage. The campgrounds are also home to a plethora of activities catering to varied interests.
At Spacious Skies Walnut Grove in Southern Maine, campers can stroll down the renowned Old Orchard Beach Pier, relish in live music, and indulge in sumptuous food, along with vintage beach-themed entertainment.
At Spacious Skies Belle Ridge in Tennessee, visitors can relax by fishing or hiking to nearby waterfalls.
For an authentic throwback experience, travelers can visit the Spacious Skies Adirondack Peaks and Woodland Hills in New York, both offering fun amenities like gem mining, a jumping pillow, playgrounds, and arcades.
Overall, this 2,500-mile journey with Spacious Skies offers a unique blend of natural beauty and recreational activities, providing an experience that is sure to captivate all types of campers.
The Fall Color Trail is a testament to the growing trend of unique, experiential offerings in the private campground industry and serves as an inspiration for other operators to create similarly engaging opportunities for their guests.
