5 Reasons to Go Fall Camping in Anderson County

5 Reasons to Go Camping in the Fall 

1. Fall Foliage – East Tennessee is one of the most beautiful places to view nature’s artistry. 


2. Weather – Warm afternoons and cool evenings make perfect camping weather.


3. Affordable Rates – Many campgrounds offer lower rates and/or discounts in the fall. 

4. Less Bugs – with summer gone, bugs are much less of a nuisance in the fall.
