Even though the majority of people think that summer is the time for camping, the truth is that there is nothing better than a nice trip during the fall. Fall trips have a lot of advantages, such as avoiding the crowds and in many cases the parks offer discounts to the fall campers.
If you are lucky, you can rent a cabin at 50% of its regular price. Naturally the offer only applies to the weekdays, between September and December. Naturally there might be some special cases as well, such as Thanksgiving, when the rates are higher and the discounts do not count.
How to Make Use of the Discount?
You will be able to cut costs only if you make a new reservation. It is possible for the discounts to take effect only on cabins, yurts, and campsites and only in given regions of a park or campsite. Another thing to consider is that you can use the discount only if you make a reservation through the internet or through the phone. In order to make sure that you won’t pay more than you have to, you will have to use a discount code.
Costs and Fees
Another thing to consider is that you can use the discount only if you use your credit card to pay the entire fee of your stay in the moment when you make the reservation. If you wish to cancel your reservation, you will have to pay a $10 fee 31 days prior to your arrival date, and you will get a refund.
If you reserve a cabin but you wish to cancel the reservation for whatever reasons, there is a $35 fee. In case you leave sooner than you anticipated, there will be no refunds. If you don’t notify the administration of the park or the campsite of your cancellation, you won’t get a refund.
If you think you will arrive later than you thought, it is important to know that the campsite holds reservations only for 24 hours. After this time the cabin or camping space will become available for other reservations. This is why it might be a good idea to notify the administration in advance if you are going to be late.
As you can see, you can save some money by camping during the fall, but there are some terms and conditions that you have to know about.
