Cabin Camping - More Convenient and Just
as Much Fun
Today, a growing trend among camping enthusiasts
is to combine the back-to-nature aesthetic of the great outdoors
with the convenience of a cabin. "
(ARA) - We all have happy memories of the family
camping trip: the excitement of putting up the tent or camper, the
joy of telling stories and singing songs around the campfire, and
the peaceful stillness of falling asleep to the sounds of nature.
The adventure wasn't over until the family station wagon pulled back
into the driveway and everything had to be unpacked, cleaned and stored.
Today, a growing trend among camping enthusiasts is to combine
the back-to-nature aesthetic of the great outdoors with the convenience
of a cabin. The following list, courtesy of Kampgrounds of America
(KOA), reveals the top reasons why campers are turning to cabins:
- People who live in small houses and apartments in urban areas
don't have room to store a lot of camping gear.
- People drive smaller, fuel-efficient cars that aren't capable
of towing a trailer or able to carry tents, coolers and other camping
- New campers want to try the outdoors experience without having
to buy or borrow a lot of gear.
- Young families find cabins to be a comfortable, convenient alternative
to tent camping.
- People want affordable accommodations that offer the outdoor
experience with the comforts of clean restrooms, hot showers, laundry
facilities and convenience stores nearby.
- Campers want to be close to recreation, sightseeing, historic,
entertainment and shopping venues.
In response to this trend, many campgrounds across the country
are offering on-site cabins that are perfect for new campers, seasoned
veterans, and travelers looking for an alternative to a drab motel
Kampgrounds of America, which started its Kamping Kabins program
in 1982, had the foresight to see the potential popularity of cabin
camping. Today, they have more than 3,800 Kamping Kabins at nearly
500 KOA Kampgrounds in North America and the number continues to
Kamping Kabins have log-frame bunks and double beds that are equipped
with mattresses. You bring your own sleeping bags or bed linens,
in addition to basic kitchen items to cook over the outdoor fire
grate. The cabins come in two varieties: one-room, which sleeps
four, and two-room, which sleeps six. Most have electricity and
some have heating or air conditioning. For added security, all Kamping
Kabins have lockable doors and a KOA owner or manager is on-site
24 hours a day.
Kamping Kabins are great for a weekend getaway or as an affordable
resting place on your way to other adventures. Depending on the
geographic location, one-room Kamping Kabin rates begin at around
$30 per night and range to $60 per night.
