40s is fine in a tent. By the time water is freezing, I'm starting to feel a little less enthusiastic...
Went camping at Grand Canyon several Christmases ago. The first two days were fine, with a sunny 60 or so for a high, and an overnight low in the mid 30s. Then a front arrived.... Woke up early, too cold to sleep, to <= 15F and 3 inches of snow! Went to the rim and watch the sun rise as bitter air blasted out of the chasm. Memorable, and VERY pretty, but not something I try to do too often.
If there is a 'heaven,' it's camping in S. Utah in the spring. Highs from 60~80, with lows in the 40s. Glorious scenery, fun hikes, etc.
