every curve in the road. Isn’t it time to pack the RV and experience autumn in New England for yourself?

Here’s my quick list of areas famous for foliage to help you plan your New England RV road trip:

  • Vermont’s Champlain Valley: Some of New England’s most fabulous fall scenery can be found around Lake Champlain on the New York/Vermont border. Whether your RV’s rolling through Burlington, Shelburne or East Middlebury, the fall foliage won’t disappoint. Need a place to stop for the night? Ten Acres Campground offers lakeside RV campsites through mid-October.
  • Kancamagus Scenic Byway – New Hampshire: In New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, the “Kanc” winds its way through spectacular hardwood forests, along the Lost River and through valleys filled with historical sites. Broken Branch KOA in Woodstock, NH is open through October and a stone’s throw away from White Mountain.
  • Acadia National Park – Maine: The granite outcroppings and splendid fall colors in the forests of Acadia National Park will have you pulling off the road for photo after photo. Leaf peeping in early October is a very popular pastime at the park, so be sure to make your RV campground reservations early. Try Hadley’s Point Campground in nearby Bar Harbor for full-service campsites.
  • Litchfield Hills – Connecticut: The photo opportunities are also endless along the highways and byways of Connecticut’s Berkshire foothills. Mohawk State Forest near Goshen, Lake Waramaug State Park near Kent and dozens of quaint Connecticut villages fill the Litchfield Hills with plenty of sightseeing possibilities. Valley in the Pines Campground in Goshen is a great home base for your Connecticut Fall Foliage RV Tour.
  • Merrimack Valley – Massachusetts: Lexington, Concord, Waltham and Boston…historic towns surrounded by explosions of fall color. Massachusetts’ Merrimack Valley is home to seven sites managed by the State Parks Department, as well as rivers, streams and covered bridges. Why not park your RV at Minuteman Campground near Boston? It’s perfectly located as a center of Merrimack Valley activities.

    Will be in New England area end of September and first of October, looking to make an RV trip to watch the leaves, looking for list of RV park locations and/or tour groups. Maybe part the RV for a few days and drive car around to see more area.
