Is Camping Romantic?

Somehow this girl who loves the luxe life (for less of course) had a hard time wrapping her head around camping as a relaxing, comfortable and romantic experience. I'm of the school that a vacation means room service, a pool boy and going to the spa. I was SHOCKED to learn that many campgrounds are actually considered ROMANTIC HOT SPOTS.
