Exactly.

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


we camped in hickman co. once years ago and in 5 days, it never got over 12 degrees. i'll take the heat.


Well, I don't camp when it's THAT cold. \:D

I camped once a month for several years when the boys were in scouts. Hot, cold or storming, it didn't matter - we went. I prefer hot to the other two.
When I was growing up we camped for a week at the beach a few times. It wasn't bad at all.
As for cold....stik takes the kerosene heater now and I stay toasty warm until nature calls. \:\)
As for the original post- electric site, a fan and a shade tree.

Use the correct amount of alcohol and you won't notice the heat.

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.

Lived in FL for a lot of years.

Camping in the heat sucks. Humidity and bugs!!!

4th of july one year we went to the Keys for a 5 day fishing/camping trip. First night there a storm came up and blew the tent apart...literally. Doofus put the tent away wet and the cotton seams all rotted.

Had to sleep in the van... 85 degrees 97% humidity at 2 am.
Next night we slept on the picnic tables until the skeeters got so bad you had to cover your face or they would get in your nose/ears.
Final night we drove to key west to the parking lot by the bay. Opened all the doors to the van to get a cross breeze and finally got a couple hours of sleep. Then we got rousted by the cops and had to drive 90 minutes back to the campground.

That did it for me. No more camping when its hot without some sort of amenities.

Probably the second worst was a camping trip to Crystal River.

Left late and got there after dark in the rain. Set up the tent and got absolutely clobbered by skeeters. Spent 3 hours drinking beer and killing skeeters in the tent so we could sleep.

Rain, then stop and humidity would climb until you about lost your mind, then it would rain again. All the while you could hear the whine of the skeeters.

When it got light, our campsite was surrounded by salt marsh and flood water. No wonder the skeeters were so bad. Moved to a different campground and had a half decent weekend.
