Ok, so we rented a cabin, which in the mind of many campers is not really camping. That being said, I liked "camping" in a cabin with beds, a full bath and full kitchen. You have a two options for getting around the place, there are buses or you can walk. Depending on where your campsite is you have quite a walk to get to pools, restaurants, and fun spots. No quick service on site if using the dining plan but had great chicken and waffles for lunch at the Trails End restaurant. We had older kids who were more interested in the parks than evening activities at the campground but they seemed to have a few nice things planned for those with pre-teens and younger.
We were only there for 2nights and you can't really fully enjoy the campground if you also try to do the parks. You should plan at least one full day and night just enjoying the campground amenities. Have a no park day, kick back and relax, you'll be refreshed.
TIP: if you want to make s'mores at your campsite (bbq provided), bring in charcoal, and the "makings" from outside Disney....we forgot and bought everything at the County Store on site...more than $40 spent for s'mores!
