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.


Thank you, great information.

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.


What is the name of the Campground? Thank you.

The one we stay at is Fun Valley Family RV Resort. It is “Resort” for all the activities available, not because it is any kind of high end resort. It has a mile of the South Fork of the Rio Grande River running thru it where you can rent tubes to float down or bring your own tube or inflatable raft. Fishing in the river is catch/release. But they have numerous ponds stocked weekly with trout. Requires a resort fishing license. Paddleboats, bike rentals, miniature golf, regular golf outings to nearby courses, horseback riding, etc. They have a pretty nice buffet style restaurant, but it is closed due to the virus. They also have a SnackShack for burgers /hot dogs/pizza/shakes/etc. Normally have regular C&W dancing and street dances. But both are on hold due to the virus. They have a grocery store, fuel pumps, and laundry.

From the above it is obviously a busy place. Many people love it. But many don’t. Primarily due to lots of children due to being a family resort.

We stay most anywhere across the mountains of Arizona. Williams, Flagstaff, Showlow, Alpine etc. Dozens of high altitude locations where it generally has excellent weather in the 70's and 80's when Phoenix is 110-115.
