We just did a stay-cation with our pop-up camper. Well, it was parked in the drive-way of DH's buddy. It did two things: allowed us to see if there was anything missing from the camper before we went on a real camping trip (bowls/spices/toilet paper/bug spray) and it let us know if the camper needed any work done to it (running lights/interior lights/AC working/heater working/no roof leaks).
I was impressed with our campsite: free wi-fi, a tv in the "pavilion" (the shop), the "hosts" made us breakfast one day (we made it the next).
My only complaints were the swimming pool always had a dog in it (baby pool that their Lab plays in), the hot tub only had bubbles when the Lab jumped in it (same baby pool) and one of the other campsites were really pigs (really, a pig and a goat).
Doing the stay-cation also let the guys get a lot of work done on their garden. At the end of last summer they were canning salsa while we were camping. Canning can be done at the campsite.. putting in the plants has to be done at home
A lot of the time we have our camper set up at home. DH will use it as a study room. The boys will play Magic the Gathering in it. It also comes in handy as a guestroom during the summer when my nephews come and spend the night. It sleeps 6 comfortably.
