No, we haven’t given up camping. Just got back from a 9 day trip in the Nevada desert. We rang in the New Year on this trip, meaning we were camping on the last day of 2015 and the first day of 2016, which is something we have done for 13 consecutive years.
Although 9 days was not our usual end of the year 2+ week trip, it was nice and peaceful. The advantage of camping during the Christmas break is the lack of people. Our campground had less than 5% occupancy.
Pictures say it better than words.
