As more and more people embrace the joy and freedom of a lifestyle that focuses on what nature can offer, the allure of staying in a caravan park has also increased proportionately. Such an activity is especially attractive for people who wish to attempt an overnight stay in the outdoors, yet don’t really want to give up the amenities and conveniences of modern life.
Assuming you want to caravan close to home, the costs of staying in a caravan park vary depending on where you live. Nevertheless, caravan parks are often similar in the sense that they are reasonably priced and are a welcome alternative to often-overpriced hotels. This is because maintaining and operating such parks does not require much overhead, and there are little to no electrical or other utility bills to pay. Therefore, park operators can pass these savings on to the traveller.
The average cost of staying overnight in a caravan park typically ranges from $20-$50 for normal campsites and $20-$100 for those that are powered. Such prices are extremely cheap considering that they offer almost all of the modern conveniences that hotels and other brick-and-mortar establishments provide while allowing travellers to escape hectic city life in their caravans.
In fact, hotels often charge significantly more than that and this is even after discounting other “fees” that are eventually factored into the final bill! The savings you get from staying in a caravan park can be spent more usefully on other aspects of travel, such as fuel and food.
Much like how you choose between a single room and deluxe suite when staying in a hotel, there is a selection of sites when it comes to living in a caravan park. Depending on your budget and taste, you can opt for either a simple tent site, or one for caravan trailers.
If you are really into the activity and have the cash to splash, you might want to consider purchasing a motor home; essentially a house on wheels, as such a purchase would give you the luxury of travelling around the country while enjoying all of the comforts of home.
Staying in caravan parks is a cheaper alternative to traditional hotels and inns. Besides providing modern amenities, travellers also enjoy a lifestyle that is strongly connected with nature
