Cool weather in the summer?

Hello all--

We are already planning next summer...

Appreciate any recommendations for full service campgrounds where the summer highs seldom (never would be better!) go to 80F.

This year we are headed for Newfoundland, near St. John.

Willing to spend a week getting there (from NC).

Extra points for water, scenic, historic, folkloric, etc.

Thanks, Steve

Steve -

I was hoping someone would give you some good suggestions. Since I haven't seen any replies yet, I will chime in and say the only way I know to ensure cool daytime temps in the summer is to go to a higher altitude. Pretty much anywhere in the US away from the coasts is susceptible to highs of 90 or more. Really, no matter how far north. On the coasts, the ocean currents will dictate the temps to a pretty good degree but even that isn't foolproof. It can hit 90 pretty much anywhere on the gulf coast or the east coast.

Hopefully, some good suggestions will be made. June in TX was brutal. I am not looking forward to July and August here this year.

Come to Tahoe Tahoe Valley Campground is a great way to spend the summer. Very cool nights and average temps in the mid to high 70's

Colorado Rockies. Get up high enough and it's a beautiful warm day and the nights are cool. New Mexico was also nice north of Sante Fe. Don't know what the rest of NM is like but will find out some day.

California Coast. Monterey or Carmel area. Heck I think even San Fran and the bay area is moderate year round.

Tahoe eh? Now that sounds like a destination... and a nice ride up to SF area northward would be beautiful with the Redwoods and such!
