We are in Southern Minnesota and are also planning on camping through September and October, weather permitting. Check with the campgrounds and they will let you know when they close for the season. We've had a hot and humid summer so haven't camped as much as we would have liked to. Hope the weather works for the fall camping.
My experience has been that no federal campgrounds have hookups, about 1/2 of the state campgrounds do, and there are lot's of private campgrounds around and all of those have full hookups available. I'm sure there are exceptions to that though.
Look around on reserveamerica.com or recreation.gov. Pick a state and punch in what kind of amenities you want.

Fall is the best time to camp as far as I am concerned - fire going all day, sweatshirts and hiking boots. I have a little ceramic heater (approx 8" square) that works perfect to keep any little trailer cozy all night

Camp all throughout fall in north idaho if the unpredictable weather permits. Reminds me of last year when my wife was still pregnant and she wanted to go campping in sandpoint and we basically set up all our tnts on a nice beach and enjoyed the evening... until the storm hit. it was like a mini blizzard hurricane tornado storm. we toughed it out though, woke and had a great breakfast and went home. I sincerely remember saying, "why dont we have a camper yet?"
Opportunity is missed by many people because it is dressed in overalls and looks very much like work.
