Weather won't matter the 1st scheduled trip, bunking down in our favorite 3/BR/2bath waterfront cabin in May for a week; we'll take the GO out in maybe March/ April sometime & again in June, too hot in July/August...

Sometime In April I have a camping trip in the Virginia mountains. I expect possibly low 50 high and probably mid to high 30s night. The issue is April is usually very very rainy season and temps can range a lot in the mountains. Bonus I have an electric site so can crank the heater up if needs be. I will go rain or shine however if Ice goes into the forecast I will have to reevaluate. I almost always camp a long weekend in March at a local campground but that's usually a last minute deal if weather looks OK. The campground I go to is open all year but they don't open bathhouses or turn on water until April sometime. I have a toilet on board and will bring my own water so that doesn't bother me. VA unfortunately is known to get snow mid March what I call Jack Frost last stand. Soon after things warm up quick.

We live in the high desert of NM, and our first trip is often sometime in April. This year, the first trip wil likely be a solo for me to a Sisters on the Fly event in early May in Colorado, just south of Salida. When I attended the same event 2 years ago, it was near freezing at night, and maybe 60s during the day. We'll see.
First trip to a campground was to be to Tucson KOA, in one of their cabins, later this month. For the same (quilt show) trip, we've had nice and warm weather, as well as snow. Canceled today becasue my pal is having her knee replaced. We may try to do a trip to Tucson later in the spring. Trailer or cabin may be decided by what is available.

We kicked around the idea of going this weekend. Temps are predicted to be in the mid-to-high 50s on Saturday and Sunday during the day but overnight, she's calling for lows in the 20s...No thanks.

Out here on the prairie Spring has usually sprung by mid-to-late March. Our first outing of the year is usually sometime in March then every other weekend of so until it starts getting cold again in October or November. As of now, we have reservations for the first weekend in May when the ACOE campgrounds open, a long Memorial Day weekend and a week in Southern Missouri and NW Arkansas for Fourth of July.

@PointyCamper Awesome. That's a hard place to get in. Ive only been in the summer it would be nice to go before the bugs kick in full force. 😉
The National Seashore is open year round and FCFS in winter. Sometimes the weather is great in winter.
Or not. Come try it.:)
(We actually stopped even trying to get into the state park)

My son called me yesterday and said that his kids age 5 and 4 want to go camping with Grandpa. So we have a camping trip planned for February 12 at the Ricardo campground in Red Rock Canyon, California. They have to drive 250 miles to get there, but I only have to drive 25 miles. I live just 25 miles south of the campground. There is an Indian museum at the campground that we will be taking the kids to see.
