Ready for a fun summer at Saco River Camping Area?

While you’re here, keep it cool as a cucumber with these 5 tips:

  1. Stay Hydrated

When you’re outside enjoying the summer sun, dehydration can sneak up on you. Make sure to drink plenty of water to avoid the dizziness and nausea that accompany dehydration—no one wants to deal with that when they’re having fun!

  1. Dress Appropriately

Make sure to pack lightweight, bright colored clothing for your camping trip to Saco River. Bright colors will reflect light away from your body, and loose, breathable material will keep you feeling cool.

  1. Seek Out Shade

During peak sun, try to avoid being in direct sunlight as much as possible. Seek out the shade of a tree, prop up an umbrella, enjoy an indoor activity until things cool down out there, or opt for a shaded hike.

  1. Recognize Heat Illness

No one wants to think about getting sick when they’re planning their vacation, but it’s important to be informed and prepared in case of emergency. Know the signs and symptoms of heat illness, and what to do if you do experience an emergency. Some symptoms to watch out for are heavy sweating, weakness, fast pulse, nausea or vomiting, and fainting. Check out this link for more information.
