People make a lot of fuss about the fall color up in New England. And while those Maine and New Hampshire roads are beautiful, the South can give the North some gorgeous competition. One of our favorite ways to experience fall beauty is on camping trips. Think about it: cooler temperatures are great for daytime hikes and fishing trips; clear skies make stargazing and gathering around the campfire for s’mores and ghost stories a must. Whether you’re an RV-toting type camper or a minimalist still using your great-grandaddy’s tent, we’ve rounded up some of the most beautiful spots across the South to camp. Our only request is that you pack plenty of marshmallows.
