DENVER, Colo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Camping isn’t so much about roughin’ it anymore.

According to Linda Profaizer, president of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, the campground industry is revamping with better accommodations for visitors.

This summer, campers don’t need to bring tents because many campgrounds are offering rental RVs, cabins, and cottages to guests.

This takes the hassle out of pitching a tent and setting up camp, giving vacationers more time to enjoy the great outdoors.

Profaizer says accommodations vary in luxury, from a simple “barebones cabin,” which is really just four walls and electricity, to lavish yurts, canvas shelters containing several rooms.

She recently stayed in a yurt so luxurious, it had a kitchen, bedroom, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and a flatscreen TV inside.

Profaizer says campground rentals range in price from $35 to $200 a night and some even include light housekeeping services.
