The mountains of north Georgia into Tennessee are cooler. Dillard and Helen Georgia are very nice and about 10 degrees lower than down here in Middle Georgia. Other than that, you'll need to go further North.

We met some nice folks in Florida a few years back who owned Rv lots in both South Florida and the Northern Georgia mountains. They moved between them depending on the weather.

We spend the summer in Dillard, GA, at River Vista RV Resort. We found it is closer to our winter site in Crystal River, FL that is cooler in the summers.

That would do it for me too! We usually just swim at KP Hole or the springs and canoe Rainbow River.

Stay out of the midwest in summer. Hot and humid.

You need to either go far north (and around a cold body of water) or high in the mountains (you lose about 3F for every 1000 ft, if I remember my HS geography correctly).

I live in Central Fl and I go South or to the panhandle in the late spring, summer, early fall, because the snow birds are gone, it's easier to get campsites and it's cheaper.

I moved from NY to FL 3 years ago expecting the "Normal" temperature range of 72 degree nights and 88 to 90 degree days in the summer here in the Panhandle. It worked for 2014, but '15 and '16 have been stupid hot. I therefore have become a snow-bird, and go North in July and August.

I bought a Hardside camper and fitted it to carry my motorcycle. I head back to NY and camp in remote campgrounds and the driveways of various friends in the Catskills and Adirondacks. Very nice weather, and great roads to explore. Also lots of fun to see old friends.
