Staying at an RV park without an RV

We have yet to buy our next TT, but were really jonesing for a little trip. So we recently took a three-day weekend to Del Rio, TX. We stayed at the Sleeping Lady RV park there, in one of their cabins. It was SO fantastic, we are now questioning getting another RV!

RV Park Del Rio Texas

Anybody else ever done this?

Are there cabins at all the places you want to visit??
Do you know what a bed bug is and how to check for them??
Just some food for thought......

We stayed in a cabin at Inks Lake SP TX, which was like a concrete tent with A/C. Well, it also had bunks without bedding. Wasn't too bad. A/C is important for this displaced Coloradan...

Also stayed in a Conservation Corps-built cabin at Garner SP TX. That was pretty cool.

We had seasonal sites at at CG that has cabins. They worked out nicely for some friends of ours that wanted to spend the weekend but didn't have RVs themselves still wanted some privacy of their own.

Other than a situation like that, I don't see much of a difference between renting a cabin at a CG and renting a hotel room. Especially at some of the prices I've seen for cabin rentals.

Although I guess it could depend on the amenities the CG offers.

My aunt and uncle do exactly this. They had a pop-up that they used but came to find that they liked the convenience of renting cabins. They never showed an interest in owning a travel trailer.

To each his own.

Yes, all of the above concerns have crossed my mind. I WILL have another TT!! But in the meantime, these cabins are preferable to a hotel for us.

Cabins

Not all campgrounds have the cabins but most do. We are members of coast to coast,so cabins are pretty cheap. We were thinking about going out West that way and leaving RV at home.
