In the summer when we camp at State parks, sometimes I lament the credit card charges of $29/nt which really add up when you go from park to park for weeks on end.
On the other hand, when we're traveling I turn off the A/C at my house which is over 3000 sf. So I'm saving a bundle their and a little on gas by turning the WH at home to vacation mode.
We tend to eat out LESS while camping, so I'd say all together the cost of camping for us in minimal. It helps to have a way to rationalize it!!!
