We generally don't travel much between June and September. Too hot and too crowded.

Default Too hot?

Come to the Adirondacks of New York State. Over 6,000,000 acres of forest preserve dotted with small towns and villages. The temperature rarely gets to 90 and itís never very crowded.

Yeah, but you forgot to mention the swarms of mosquitoes big enough to qualify as aircraft.

Now, this time of year there aren’t any! The deer flies and the horseflies chased them all away!

Too crowded anyway in the summer. I would prefer low altitude NW region where it is cool and I can breathe. But this year forest fires. So glad I'm waiting for the new Sprinter before I get my RV!

Default No forest fires here

Climatically , the Adirondacks are designated as a temperate rain forest. From about the third week in July until the end of September it is absolutely beautiful here. There are no bugs, almost no mosquitoes, and the air is crisp and clean. If you go to resort areas, like Lake George or Lake Placid, then you will find some crowds on weekends. If you go to the central and northern Adirondacks thereís lots of wilderness, hiking, camping and not a lot of people. I've traveled throughout Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. They all have their own stark beauty. But for me, home will always be the Adirondacks. They are green, and not so dry that you have to worry about fires.

In AZ try the White Mountain area around Alpine. Campground elevations vary from 8-9000ft. We usually head up from Phoenix to that area in the hot summer. Woods Canyon Lake also a possible. It's at about 7500.

Yep, been there, done that. Like I said they all have beautiful areas. Itís just so darn dry. I grew up with green hills and valleys and mountains.

cwbrown, I usually spend time further south in the Catskill region but have rediscovered the Adirondacks this year. You are correct about it being cooler. Was in the Ausable river area a couple weeks ago and have started to plan for a few days around Schroon lake. Seems like there are sections along the Interstate that are crowded (Lake George) then long tracts that are fairly empty. Having a short B makes it easy to fit in tight areas along the side roads. Also noticed some state camp grounds in the area with a maximum length of 20' sites which works for me.
