Frugal Friday With Marsha -- Camping

Hubby's vacation time and we have a camping trip planned.
Originally it was to a lake and the usual tent camping with the family.  Well, then we changed our minds and decided to go to Spring Lake RV Resort and rent a 5th wheel camper to stay in.  Others in the family will still camp in their tent.

If I could buy a new tent, this one looks awesome!

Not as frugal as tent camping, but compared to spending those nights in a motel, it's a good deal.  It's $50 a night for the camper.  The camper comes with the dishes, cookware, eating and cooking utensils, toaster, coffee pot, and microwave in addition to the stove and oven built in to the camper.
They even provide the toilet paper, paper towels, and dish soap.

Spring Lake also offers a regulation swimming pool, so no swimming in the yucky lake water.
They have lots of activities going on like bingo on Friday night, ice cream social on Saturday night, church on Sunday morning.  Plus, it's their Christmas in July weekend so they other fun events planned for the weekend as well.

We are going a lot more frugal on our food this time.  Usually we just shop and buy everything at once that we plan for the meals while camping.  This ends up usually being around $100 or so just for food.  This time we are taking a lot from what we already have here at the house and have spent very little other than that....only around $20 for things we needed to fill in.

I cooked up some chicken in the crockpot and used my grinder.  This will be turn into chicken salad sandwiches for one lunch.  We are taking a pork roast from the deep freeze and taking along the large crockpot to cook it in.  That will give us a nice supper with leftovers.  Mac and cheese on the side.

These are the 2 crock pots that I have.

What kind of frugal vacations do you take?
