Learn more about cabin camping and the different ways you can enjoy camping in a cabin.

Camping, in our book, is never a bad idea. In whatever fashion you fancy escaping to the woods for a night or two (or more, if you can), we are huge supporters of that.

Most campers in our world tend to camp either via tent or RV. And each of those camping styles come with their own list of benefits.

However, we are seeing a massive growth in the popularity of cabin camping, especially as fall rolls around. Tent campers may not be ready to give up camping, but will soon be struggling with the cold. With cabin camping, RVers are able to enjoy camping after their RV has been put away for the season.

There are many reasons why camping in a cabin is something you’re sure to love.

Today, we’re sharing with you our top reasons to go cabin camping, as well as the different cabin options you have to choose from at KOA campgrounds.

We are here to ensure your cabin camping experience is the best possible.

Why You Should Try Camping in a Cabin

1. Stay warm and dry

Few things can ruin a good camping trip more easily than rain. Hopefully you have a waterproof tent but even then, you’re still bound to get wet in one way or another.

In a cabin, on the other hand, rain isn’t a concern. You’ll stay dry, and so will all of your gear.

Heat (or lack of) is another thing to consider when you’re camping. Even in the summertime, nighttime temperatures in some areas can dip pretty low.

You can certainly pack on the layers when camping in a tent to make up for the cooler weather, but that means packing a bunch of extra gear.

When you’re staying in a cabin, heat will no longer be an issue. Because the cabins are constructed out of logs that serve as insulation, heat will not be an issue.

You can still break out the double sleeping bag though, because cold or not, those are always fun to sleep in.

2. More space

We are going to be frank here: tents are small. Even if you upgrade to a big one, you’re still pretty limited when it comes to roaming space.

RVs, though bigger than tents, are often quite small as well. Things can start to feel a bit claustrophobic after a while.

One of the great benefits of staying in a cabin is that there is a lot more space. More space means you’re able to invite more people to camp with you, and more space also means that you have more room to play. Whether play for you means board games, cards, or a number of other indoor games, you and your family will enjoy the extra space.

3. More convenient for longer trips

Tent camping is usually only fun for a few days. Eventually, people tire of the lack of showering, the canned food diet, and not having much space to spread out in.

Camping in a cabin, however, allows for longer camping trips, thanks to  the amenities KOA cabins offer.

Plus, it’s certainly easier to make a cabin feel like home than a tent.
