My personal preference is camping. But I do prefer camping w/hot showers and place to eat w/in walking distance. If there is a common pavillion in case of bad weather the group can still socialize. Alcohol nearby is prefered, but not required.
When BYOB goes farther north I see less of my southern friends. When it goes further south, I see less of my northern and Canadian friends. If we put it in the middle, I'll see more of both.
