Most people do not think of beach camping when they think of the fall season. But here at RV Family Travel Atlas, we believe September and October are the two best months of the year to park your rig in the sand. The crowds are gone, the weather is cooler, and the water is still warm.
We are headed off to one of our favorite beach camping spots in North Carolina this fall, so it is the perfect time to share three of our favorite little products that make a BIG difference when vacationing on the shore.
Kids Backpack Beach Chair
This was an impulse purchase at a touristy beach store that ended up being one of our favorite items of beach gear. We hate it when our boys try to steal our beach chairs, but it is tricky to haul down seats for everyone in the family. We love that our boys can easily carry these chairs on their backs. Priced around $20, they seemed expensive at the time. However, they have lasted almost 4 years and are still in good shape.
Beach Umbrella Sand Anchor
It is definitely windier on the beach in the fall, but often the sun is still strong enough to call for a beach umbrella. Don’t be one of those people chasing their umbrella down the beach. These sand anchors are very inexpensive, costing under $10 even at pricey beach bodegas. They are worth every penny.
Sand Off Baby Powder Mitt
Beach veterans know that baby powder does a fantastic job getting sand off little bodies (and big for that matter). There are many baby powder pouch products out there that make the whole process even easier. I like this mitt version that goes over your hand and then you just wipe down the sandy arms, legs, and feet. Crafty folks could sew one of these in a flash…or just buy online like us.
