Anybody Camping In This Heat

Haven't had my camper out since February so was thinking of taking it to Brazos Bend State Park for an overnighter just to get out a bit and see how the camper does. I don't like for it to sit for too long and that's way too long.

I have it sitting at the house now checking everything out.

I know it's hot but anybody doing any camping in this heat?

We just got back from a week at the lake. Hot.....why yes it was. Our air conditioners did well during the heat of the day with all the window covering pulled shut. We did find ourselves sitting inside more than usual. I will have to be honest and say that packing up yesterday was brutal in the heat. But we survived. Go for it.

Have been going every chance we get! In fact, we have 10 days coming up in another week. Temps were in the 108 ranger yesterday with heat and humidity. Just keep the ac units going and from noon until around 6, limit being outside. Just part of it. Spring, fall, and early/late winter more than make up for it!

Just got back from a three day stay
near Highlands,NC. Hot? Humid? You betcha! 95ish with probably the same humidity. The cool cat in my camper kept it where you could hang meat. The weather permitting days of camping are over. My little A frame kept us dry and cool all summer long

Shaded Spots help also.

We look for shady spots to camp. We do not sitting in the camper much, but sometimes you have to. We' most of the time camp by a lake or river where the water is cooler than the sun! Going this weekend. The weather says a cool front coming this week. I guess that's only 95 not 105. LOL. Texas has been quite hot after the rain stopped. Heat index has been over 105 most of last week.

Well the weather made up my mind for me. Went outside to check the camper and it was sprinkling....checked the weather forecast and it's 90% today and 80% for most of this week. I hate camping in the rain especially when it's so hot.

Shooting for next week.

Mine is in the shop for a bubble window replacement or I might have joined you at Brazos Bend. I was out in mid June. The next trip I have planned is in a few weeks to Guadalupe River State Park so I hope my camper is ready by then. Then hopefully a labor day camp then definatly Lake Ratcliff. I don't let the heat stop me, just adjust the activities to match. Like starting the hikes at 8AM.

If you don't know about it, consider a trip to Lake Texana for a quick overnight. Some friends were there last weekend and the lake is full. Get a site on the peninsula. The hiking is not as good and the alligators fewer in number, but the park is less crowded and it is a great place to kayak.

Just spent a week on the Jersey Shore last week. Granted, it was not as hot as it has been in other parts of the US, but the temps were north of 95 several days. The AC ran at 75 in my camper. AC did well, no complaints from anyone staying with us which is good because at one point we had 6 people and a dog for a few nights.

Too Hot In Oklahoma

It's been way too humid and hot (100 degrees plus) to stay at the lake in the motorhome, but I have a new boat and must use it, so we have gone out on water a couple of times for the day and then come home. Thankfully the lake is only 17 miles from our home. We are taking trip in MH to Clearwater, Florida middle of August.
