This will do, I'm very brave...
I'm a bit traditional so when someone says camping, I think of a tent and a camping stove and I enjoy this getting back to basics way of holidaying. I have a number of friends who say that they regularly go 'camping' but their style of camping is quite far removed from my idea of camping. When you take a caravan along, a cooker and all your modern conveniences it's not essentially camping anymore. I have done comfortable camping, glamping and very basic camping and I'd say I enjoyed all of them for different reasons. Now that we take our kids along with us too, we tend to go for comfortable camping, so that we get back to nature, but have a few home comforts too such as inflatable mattresses and a portacot. Dinner made on a camp stove and eaten under the stars, I'm not sure can be beaten.
I like a few comforts like inflatable matresses too. We don't bring a portacot though (no room), everybody just piles in together.

I go "Glamping" at least twice a year. I have a camper-trailer which has a queen bed (for hubbie), a double bed (for me), a queen single and a single (for the kids). It has a microwave, a 4 burner stove, bar fridge, pantry and sink. We actually don't use all the stuff in the van, we set up outside with the microwave, another stove, urn (instant hot water!!), Delongi Coffee machine and another sink outside (which we have a tap connected to). So, yes...it's not roughing it, but we are outside all the time, we relax and meet heaps of fellow campers (usually the same ones every year). WE LOVE IT!!!!!!
(ps.....I went on a cruise last year and couldn't believe how easy a holiday could be)

Where did you go to on your wonderful cruise, Sandy? How many nights was it, & which cruise line?

Pretty happy too be cuddled up in the back of my ute with my lady searching for shooting stars in the middle of nowhere
Just your basic pitch a tent style for me. I couldn't afford luxury camping but I think I'd prefer roughing it a bit more anyway. That's kind of the point of camping, getting away from electronic gadgets, tv etc, keeping things simple, cooking over a fire and looking at the stars. I love camping.
I like living the life of luxury. Only the best quality and comfortable experience for me thank you very much!
As simple as possible but with attention to two key priorities - keeping dry and keeping warm. I have seen people go camping and surround themselves with so much equipment and camping 'accessories' I wonder if they can see or hear the environment they hopefully went camping to experience. Keep it simple, dry and warm and enjoy the magnificent natural environment, rest your body and mind and be reminded of how fantastic life can be with just the basics around you.
I'm happy with bush camping. No showers etc doesn't bother me, but a toilet nearby is nice.
I'm still living down the fact that 45 years ago I said I wanted "conveniences" when camping. Now those "conveniences" encompass more than a loo.

This grey nomad has had it with the camper trailer and now wants something that doesn't require 3 hours to erect in the pouring rain. Any suggestions?
a hotel?

the only camping I would ever do is glamping. Give me luxury any day :-)
I'll second that, pfuit.
It doesn't exist.
Any camping is good for me! I'm happy to go with anything or nothing depending on who else I am going with.
Went camping/bushwalking for many years. Two man tent, Primus stove. End of.

Then kids arrived! So upgraded to the 'oyster'; a camper-trailer. It was magnificent! We had extra's put in like.....pipes for fresh water storage, & insect screens on ALL doors & windows. It was just soooo comfy! Took a few minutes' only to open-up. Could stand up in it with a good metre of headspace! How much easier to change clothes in!
We then set up our 'Gazebo', with insect-screened sides & attached waterproof sides if it rained. Big space for card tables, larder, stoves, portable fridge! It was heaven!
I cooked as much as possible over Campfire though!
Ah, those were the days!
Had to sell 'oyster' when kids got to teenage hood, as no longer interested in camping. Very sad!
My 'camping' style is four walls, a roof, a bathroom and breakfast provided in the morning! 'Roughing it' is just not my scene!
We used to have tents, and they are nice and roomy, it seemed to take ages to set up, but it was actually worse when we had to pack up, deflating the mattresses and packing up the camp beds, now we go in a caravan, much easier.
No, I'm not into camping, although I thing my parents took us camping a couple of times. I'd much rather go cruising, as I've done so 11 or 12 times.
