Call me crazy but after a day of riding I like a nice shower, soft bed, room with heating /cooling. A toilet and running water are also nice.

Camping to me is the 9th level of Hell.
I've done that a time or two myself but I really enjoy the fire in the evening and the different bird sounds plus the odd animal that wanders through. One morning several pronghorns came by, another a lone skunk. Shinning a flashlight into the darkness can sometimes see eyes reflecting back at you. Coyotes, raccoons. When car camping outside of campgrounds I carry a charcoal barbecue for the evening fire. Keeps things safe and doesn't leave a trace plus easy to snuff at bedtime just put the cover on.
