It's been hot like that around here for the last month or so. My past experiences camping in 100 plus weather hasn't gone too well. Fishing is slow. The water is warm/hot and can contain bacteria which can make you sick. Even a large lake such as Lake Eufaula can have areas that can become stagnant and contain the bacteria.
We end up spending our time finding the best way to stay cool which doesn't make a fun camping trip. So we usually don't camp mid July thru August.
This year we haven't camped in June as well. Mainly because of the unusual high temps.
Maybe we need to plan our vaction time during this time period where we can travel some place where the temps are cooler.

I have heard from other RVers that summer is too hot to camp but I thought I could manage it. At lease I'changed my mind about heading out to the desert until it gets much cooler.

The older I get the less I like summer. When I was a teenager summer was the best time of the year. Now I like spring and fall much more.

Now Anacortes looks like a good place to camp during warmer months...
F and E DampThe high that day in Anacortes was 74 degrees, with clear skies and a gentle breeze.

Yes, indeed, Terier. We're up in the "top left-hand corner", 20 miles or so west of I-5 at exit 230 and about 50 miles as the crow flies from the Canadian border. My sister, a UK resident, reckons Anacortes is where God comes on vacation.

Update

I just received a credit for two nights camping due to extended length of time without power. Good thing I was staying in the new cg area because the other cg (older section) had it even worse. Almost everyone in the park requested some sort of a credit.

We haven't been out since July 4th weekend. Just to hot here. We were supposed to go this weekend with my brother (he has a pop up) but he called it off since he can't take the heat. Next weekend is for sure with 3 nights in the Branson area. The girls want Silver Dollar City and I plan on sitting in Table Rock Lake the whole weekend. Once the girls go back to college we hope to get out a lot this fall when campgrounds tend to be more empty and we can get some choice sites.
