A quick dip in the creek and sleep naked??
Stay up drinking until it cools down or you pass out works.

A box fan at the door and all windows open makes a nice breeze.

I don't camp much (if at all) during the warmer months for that reason--I don't sleep well when it's warm. If it's in the low 60s at night, I might go. Anything above 70 at night, I probably won't go...unless I stay in a hotel room. \:D

I remember I borrowed a cheap tent and went camping in Arkansas in June several years ago. There was just a little mesh on top for a little ventilation. Otherwise, there was NO ventilation. I ended up getting in my truck and rolling the windows down...and that wasn't much better. If you camp in the warmer months, you have to have a tent with big open windows for cross ventilation.

Saw a battery operated fan in a bass pro flyer. Looked small, but could buy a couple and get some type of ventilation going.

Pop for an electric site. Bring box fans or I prefer a small window unit ac.

Nothing like waking up refreshed and seeing your friends from the other tent looking like they just finished a marathon. \:D

Exactly.

I'd much rather camp when it's cold than when it is hot.
