The Campground is the location of your campsite, at which many important things are stored.
Various objects can be placed in your campsite:
- Housing, where you can rest, restoring HP and MP (resting usually costs one adventure, except for players with Disco Nap, Disco Power Nap, Executive Narcolepsy, or an Unconscious Collective)
- Furniture can be added to your housing, for additional bonuses.
- A maid can be added to your housing to increase the number of adventures you gain at rollover. A meat maid gives +4, a clockwork maid gives +8.
- Your Workshed contains crafting-related appliances.
- An Advent Calendar, which provides daily gifts during the Crimbo season.
- A Pagoda, which gives double the base HP and MP when resting, as well as 3 extra adventures a day.
- Your Colossal Closet, in which you can store your items and meat.
- A Telescope, to gaze into the depths of space.
- A Shimmering Portal, which grants access to the center of El Vibrato Island.
- A Trophy Case, from which you can choose which of your trophies you wish to display.
- Your Mystical Bookshelf, which contains the Tomes, Librams, and Grimoires, acquired from Mr. Store, that you have used. In a Zombie Slayer run, this is replaced with An Open Grave.
- A Garden, which may contain a Pumpkin Patch, a Peppermint Patch, a Bone Garden, a Beer Garden, or a Winter Garden.
- Your Kitchen, which contains your chef-in-the-box, bartender-in-the-box, and other kitchen appliances. In an Avatar of Jarlsberg run, this is replaced with Jarlsberg's Cosmic Kitchen.
- A Familiar-Gro™ Terrarium, to store all of your familiars.
- A Quest Log, which keeps track of quests both pending and completed.
- A Couch next to a jar of psychoses, which lets you explore the nightmares of various NPCs.
- A Spooky Scarecrow, to reduce the Muscle of players that attack you in PvP.
- A Meat Golem, to protect your items from players that attack you in PvP.
- A Magical Mystical Hippy Stone, which stops you from initiating, and protects you from receiving, PvP attacks (unless you have smashed it, in which case it does neither of those things).
After you ascend, only the Closet, Terrarium, Trophy Case, Quest Log, Telescope, Bookshelf, Pumpkin/Peppermint Patch/Bone Garden, and Advent Calendar will remain in your campground. The Ground is always available to new or newly-ascended characters. Your kitchen will remain but everything in it except the E-Z Cook™ oven and My First Shaker™ will be removed.

- On February 8, 2008, the Beanbag Chair was also changed into a usable item.
- On March 25, 2008, a magnifying glass was added above everyone's housing. When clicked on, it tells you what is installed in your dwelling.
- On November 28, 2008, the Cheap Toaster, Kingdom of Loathing Certificate of Participation, and Really good Feng Shui were changed from campground items into usable items.

- On May 16, 2012, the pretty bouquets, white picket fences, and barbed-wire fences were changed from campground items into usable items, as the PvP revamp on April 30, 2012, had caused them to no longer serve a purpose. The following messages greeted adventurers when they first visited their campgrounds after the update, if they had the appropriate items:
- Due to hippies, bouquets of pretty flowers are no longer a campsite item. You pull them all out by their dirty hippy roots.
- Due to the deterioration of the American Dream, white picket fences are no longer a campsite item. You shed a single tear as you collect your fence(s).
- Due to changes in the Geneva Convention, barbed-wire fences are no longer a campsite item. You pull them up and prepare to send them to Nytmare.
- On October 9, 2012, the Meat Maid and Clockwork Maid were moved from outside the dwelling to within it.
- On December 15, 2013, a 5th column was added, increasing the total space to 20. This was to make room for the workshed. It used to look like this:
