Did you know this little guy used to cost tens of millions of bells online?

The camp site is a Public Work which can be built from your mayor’s chair like other Public Works. Be careful when placing it because you won’t be able to demolish it once it’s built!

When the camp site is built a villager may randomly set up camp here. This villager won’t be a current resident and will give you the chance to play some mini-games. Sometimes the camper may even talk about moving into your town!

Mini Games

OUCH! We got totally ripped off…

There are three different mini-games that the camper may want to play:

List of Items

The camper has five secret items and will give you the chance to buy one of them. He or she will go through the list and you get to choose which item you’d like to by. If you reach the fifth and final item in the list, you’ll have to buy that item.


The camper will play a random guessing game. If you guess correctly, the camper will sell you the item at a low price or maybe even give you it for free. If you don’t guess correctly you’ll have to buy the item at a high price.


The camper will pick an item you’re carrying and offer to buy it. If you agree then you’ll play a guessing game with the camper.

If you get enough correct guesses then the camper will buy your item at a high price. If you don’t guess correctly then the camper will buy the item at a low price.
