As you likely know from previous posts and my screen name, my family and I are avid campers. Nothing beats hooking up our trailer and towing it to new, exotic, and fun locations, or revisiting some of your favorite spots. But what if you don’t have a camper or trailer? And the idea of sleeping in a tent just doesn’t appeal to you? Can you still experience the wonder and excitement of camping in the great outdoors?
Most campgrounds across the country offer some type of cabin rental. Cabins are located on the campground, strategically placed in and around the other sites and near all of the action! Renters have access to all the same wonderful amenities and activities the campground has to offer. Most cabins come equipped with a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. Depending on the size and location, cabins may offer multiple rooms. You’ll likely have a driveway for parking cars, a grill for cooking, a fire ring for roasting marshmallows and perhaps even a small deck or porch for relaxing outside.
Sounds too good to be true? It’s not! And here are three more reasons to consider fun rental cabins
for your next vacation. 1. Taste of Nature
Just because you’re not sleeping outdoors, on the ground, doesn’t mean you can’t experience the thrill and excitement of camping. As mentioned above, most cabins offer all the same amenities as you’d find in a camping trailer or RV. Most people spend minimal time actually inside their campers while camping. And why is that? Because camping is about being outside, in nature.
You can gather around your fire pit at night and roast marshmallows, tell spooky stories
, and simply look at the stars and enjoy the ambiance. Cook steaks and baked potatoes on your outdoor grill, or even over the fire. If you plan on fishing nearby, you can cook that day’s catch for dinner!
Your cabin will act mostly as your “pit stop” for showering and sleeping. Most campsites offer a picnic table for outdoor eating. You may even find a pavilion near the campground’s store or public meeting area. 2. It’s Better Than a Hotel
There are so many reasons why renting a cabin is much better than renting a hotel. The main reason is that you’ll find yourself in the thick of the action at the campground of your choosing! Your cabin will be within walking distance of friends or family that have towed a camper to the same place. Not only that, but a cabin offers more privacy than a hotel.
There’s nothing worse than having rowdy neighbors next door in a hotel that keeps trying to open that adjoining door. Or party animals that keep you up all night, banging on the walls or floor. Most campgrounds have a quiet time where guests are expected to keep the outdoor noise to a minimum. This is often strictly enforced by campground security.
Most hotels don’t allow pets, but most cabins do! Your dog will love camping just as much as the rest of you. They’ll have the chance to experience nature and run freely about. You’ll likely find a dog park at any campground as well. Camping and cabins are both pet-friendly. Cabins are also roomier than most hotel rooms. If you want a “homey” feel on your next vacation, a cabin will surely deliver. 3. It’s Affordable
Taking vacations can get pretty expensive
, especially depending on your destination of choice. Do a little research online and find a location that the entire family will love. Once you’ve done this, start researching local campgrounds. You’d be surprised how affordable renting a cabin truly is!
And the best part is, with your cabin rental you’ll gain access to everything that particular campground as to offer. Unlike other travel destinations, most amenities at a campground are included in the price. This means access to the pool, beaches, fishing piers, camping store, and daily activities. Because camping is a very family-friendly form of travel, most campgrounds offer weekly “themes” with activities designed around those themes. These can include candy bar bingo, hayrides, crafts, dances, and relay races, just to name a few. So when you’re pricing out your cabin, understand all that you’re getting for your money.
