Staying Cool While Camping In The Summer Months?-summer-heat.jpg

Normally I do most of my camping in fall and winter to avoid the hottest part of the year around here, but I am wanting to do more summer camping on my days off. Have you found ways to stay cool?

Summer camping is the one and only time that a cot, big hollow-tube air mattress, or hammock are appropriate. While they will suck the heat out of you in cool weather, in summer weather they get you more "convection cooling" than a self-inflating sleeping pad.

Buy a canvas tent. Contrary to what seems to be a popular thought that they're heavy and hot, cotton insulates better than nylon. Sun will penetrate thin material and heat you up like you're in a sauna. Not so with canvas. A light colored tarp over the tent will also help out a lot. Silver and tan are my go to colors in warm weather. They reflect the sun better than the more traditional blue or brown.

Sounds like you need to camp on the beach lol I'm in Texas too and beach camping during the summer is AMAZING. I got my tent from this list, because I usually camp with a group of friends. https://top-twelve.com/best-camping-tents-2018/
