Being a bit analytical (DW calls it anal) I track my out of pocket costs when we camp. Last winter we spent 61 days in Florida. We travelled 2400 miles and stayed in 10 different campgrounds (no Wal-Mart or dry camping). Out of pocket costs = $65.54 per night.
I compare that to the extensive auto trips we have taken to the West Coast, Alaska and Canadian Rockies where we must eat in restaurants and stay in motels. I found that I must budget $200 per day for those trips.
I don't include the depreciation on the Motorhome in camping costs just as I didn't include the same on the minivan when I took those long $200/day auto trips.
Hoping to spend 90 days in FL this winter.
Life is a journey, not a destination.
