Southern Colorado just west of town of South Fork along the south fork of the Rio Grande at about 8,500’ elevation. Even in July sometimes you might need a little heat at night. Pretty easy trip from north Texas, even closer for most of Oklahoma.

I'm thinking thee referring to "Fun Valley RV Park" But don't go there if your single, that won't let you in.

As we folks in Texas reply when people ask what are Texan's favorite camping places in the summer ---

COLORADO

Get above 5,000 ft elevation, preferably above 6,000 ft and an area which supports trees.

That will not stop hot days from happening, but what you want is places that get cool at night.

Earlier this week near Dallas, the LOW was 81. It was 91 at midnight, 81 about 5:30 as the sun rose and 90 by 9:30 am. I can't hardly take those kinds of temps any longer when the days never get cool.

Yes, but there are other RV parks in the area along with numerous government campgrounds along rivers/streams and lakes if you want more remote sites with no hookups.
