Another Ontario camper here. Our season is just starting! I guess we are fair weather campers but we are campers not travellers. Too buggy in the spring and too hot, humid and crowded in summer. We are leaving tomorrow for what probably will be a month or so tour of Ontario and possibly upper New York. Love the cool crisp nights and deserted campgrounds.

Be careful what you wish for. We had a whole summer of great camping weather scheduled. Went out once, then had to cancel the rest of the summer. Can't wait until next year. Get a rain coat and boots for the little one and a rain poncho for you and explore the wet outdoors! Go for a walk! Jump in a few puddles! You and your SO can still use the pool. So what if it is raining? You are going to get wet anyway. When it is cooler out, the water feels warmer.

I would consider myself so lucky right now to have 70 degrees and cloudy, although I don't much care for the rain. Keeping a close eye on the weather for Labor Day weekend, and right now it's looking better. Still 90 degrees but maybe not as humid. Just learned yesterday about the wildcard tropical system entering the Gulf. Hoping that doesn't turn out to be a significant weather-maker for us.

Anyway, love the positive attitudes about the weather I've seen in this thread. Weather is just an unpredictable aspect of camping that you have to deal with. I prefer not to deal with it during August and Jan/Feb and tend not to go those months.

I leave the September 7 for a three week trip, headed north. I hope to see some cooler weather and rain, my camper needs a bath. I sure wish I could take my 14 month old granddaughter, we would have a blast.

Have fun

We are readying for our annual "leaf trip". This year we will -- after a week end of square dancing locally -- go to Lake Itaska in mid Sep and follow the big river down to Greenville MS, sightseeing and wandering all the way.

It will take from mid Sep to Thanxgiving.

Holidays at home with the kids and g-kids.....then south, wandering again, until daughter calls and says the trees are leafing.

Some of our "must stops" on the river.

1. www.earlytindusters.com/ One of the best carshows in the nation
2. Poopy's Pub n' Grub Food, Bike Night, and Cabins Fish/ribs/chicken and "souvenirs"
3. South Sabula Lake Park - Jackson, IA One of our very favorite campgrounds (but check your height)
4. https://www.lds.org/locations/nauvoo...?lang=eng&_r=1 Although not Mormon, we find a huge chunk of AMERICAN history here.

Virtually any little mom and pop eatery close to the river will have superb catfish......yum !

And the river, itself.

The 5er stays in storage during summer. Spend 8-12 hours on the Atlantic when it is 97 and you will understand why I like cooler quickly.

Don't forget Clarksdale, MS, Home of the Blues. I live a couple hours away, and my wife was born and raised there.

Sorry you think your camping season has sucked
We had to cancel ALL our reservations for 2016 due to a broken arm nightmare. That's still not done. 2 surgeries later Only got to camp for Memorial Day weekend. So I am on the other end of your spectrum I wish I could have camped this year
Occasionally go out to friends site to have a fire but it's just not the same. I really miss camping. Rain and all
