It is a good idea until you sit down (or even stand up) with pen and paper and figure out how much a week away is going to cost! We thought it was the answer to our problems - not we don't have gear, we have tons of it - but the packing/unpacking erecting/dismantling which is bit too much for us now. The cost was equal to or more than a top motel/cabin/house/unit except for the location. OK for tourists using public transport or for the very rich.

I think it's great Elaine for someone who is unsure if they will enjoy camping...this way they really can try before they buy.

It is also more cost effective to go for a week as opposed to going for the weekend.

AND not everone wants a top motel/cabin/tourist resort etc

It's like everything else.....you pay for the service and I imagine if there was any competition the price would be more competitive.

It would be pretty cheap for 6 people for a week, a $110 per person for the whole week, including NP fees. That's $15 per night per person. I usually pay $25 per night for 2 people in Mystery Bay and I have to pack/unpack and set up my own gear. I'd definitely consider it if I can get some friends to join us. I wouldn't if it was within easy driving distance, but for a winter get-away, I'd pay that money for the convenience.
