Beating the Heat at Lakewood Camping Resort

Lakewood Camping Resort offers an oasis for beach lovers and adventure seekers alike. However, with the heat of summer upon us, it becomes increasingly important for us to discuss the significance of staying hydrated and conserving electricity. Let’s explore some tips on how to stay safe while enjoying your vacation during high temperatures.

1. Hydration is Crucial:

Staying hydrated is paramount during a heat wave on the beach. The combination of high temperatures and sun exposure can lead to rapid dehydration, posing significant health risks. Always carry an ample supply of water and drink regularly, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages, as they can contribute to dehydration. Opt for water-rich fruits like watermelon and hydrating sports drinks to replenish electrolytes. Hydration is the first line of defense against heat-related illnesses.

2. Seek Shade and Cool Off:

Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can lead to heat exhaustion or even heatstroke. Seek shade whenever possible, especially during the peak hours of intense sunlight between 10 AM and 4 PM. Beach umbrellas provide essential protection from the scorching rays. Additionally, take frequent breaks to cool off in the water. The ocean’s refreshing embrace offers a natural way to regulate body temperature and reduce the risk of overheating. Remember to apply and reapply sunscreen generously to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while enjoying your time in the sun.

3. Ensuring Comfort and Safety

Amidst the sweltering heat, electricity powers a plethora of amenities that make our camping experience enjoyable and safe. From cooling our RVs and tents with air conditioning to powering fans, and refrigerators, and charging essential devices, electricity becomes our lifeline during a heat wave. When temperatures climb this high, it could be hard for the power lines to keep up with demand.  Guests can help conserve energy in the following ways:  run one air conditioner at a time, use propane for water heaters & unplug golf cars once they’re fully charged. By conserving electricity, we ensure that everyone can access these comforts and maintain their well-being.

4. Embracing Energy-Efficient Practices

During the heat wave, employing energy-efficient practices becomes paramount. Simple steps, such as using LED lights, turning off electrical appliances when not in use, and setting thermostats responsibly, can make a significant difference. Removing any “extras” that are plugged in helps tremendously. Implementing these practices not only saves electricity but also sets an example for others to follow, creating a ripple effect of positive change.

Staying Aware & Prepared

As local meteorologists warn of the impending heat wave, let us remember that remaining cool and hydrated and conserving energy is not only a matter of personal comfort but also personal safety. By being mindful of our electricity consumption and exposure to high temperatures at Lakewood Camping Resort, we can ensure that everyone has a more enjoyable and sustainable camping experience during their visit!

Happy camping!
