MADISON, Conn. (WTNH)-- Camping is roughing it, but it was really rough for folks during the days of heat and humidity.
"The humidity was, it was brutal," said Bob Memory, Wallingford.
Relief was felt first thing Sunday morning at Hammonasset State park in Madison, and campers really needed to hear the heat wave is over.
"I hope so, we want to enjoy this following week," said Diane Memory. "This following week, this week coming."
"I hope so, because it hasn't been very much fun here," said Judy Marks, North Haven.
It got so unbearable that Judy Marks left, spending time at home each day to cool off, before returning to sleep under the stars.
"Just for a few hours each day we went home to recuperate and come back, but we did sleep here every night," said Marks.
When asked if he ran the air conditioner in the camper, Bob Memory said "24/7, nice place to go when you want to cool off a bit."
The break meaning the AC will go off, though for folks who never had it, the so called cooler temps put vacation back on track.
"Hopefully it will be cool enough where we can enjoy ourselves instead of just sitting with our feet in the water, a pail of water," said Marks.
Still roughing it, but not as sweaty.
