Whether you camp in a small camper or a motorhome when it comes to selecting a campground you have cost choices! Cheap vs expensive camping. Will you experience as much joy RV camping at a free or cheaper campground that costs a fraction of the cost of a luxury RV resort or RV park?

There are pros and cons to each type of campsite, so in this free vs expensive camping video, we show you a side-by-side comparison so you can compare the differences and learn the advantages and disadvantages to discover the best campsites for you.

RV resorts and premium camping campgrounds have a variety of amenities that some might argue make camping more enjoyable and easier. It’s more like glamping. But if you prefer being closer to nature this type of campsite might not be worth the cost and could be a disadvantage for you.

Many free camping spots such as at a campground, boondocking, or dispersed camping spots offer you a remote setting but finding a free campsite can be challenging because you can’t make a reservation ahead of time. You might not have a pool or a nearby restaurant but you will have fewer camping neighbors and quiet peaceful campfires.

We all have our vision of our best campsites. Which one is yours more like? The free campsite or the premium campsite? I’m really curious to hear which one you’d prefer to camp at! Let me know in the comment section!

This is an RV camping related YouTube channel community, a place for Weekend Warriors to get inspired, share ideas about small campers, travel trailers, campgrounds, outdoors, RV tips and tricks, accessories, hacks, gadgets, modifications, upgrade ideas to help us have memorable camping getaways.

I love the outdoors, hiking, campfires, meeting fellow campers, exploring new campgrounds and my small travel trailer the Little Guy Max makes this happen. I also camp all 4 seasons and yes… that includes winter camping! I live in Minnesota and mostly camp in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Weekend RV life in my small camper brings me joy. I am a camper at heart and loving every outdoor minute.

I can’t wait to see you next Thursday!

❤ Randi
