To the best of my knowledge, current practice in Trimaris has a site fee 
that includes camping; some sites have a separate charge for cabins(reserved 
in advance only) but others are first come first served for cabin space.
Feast has always been a separate charge, I only remember one time it was 
included,(a local event in a different part of the kingdom we used to live 
in)  and we ran into the planning for enough people parts, we had enough 
food for everyone that showed up, but the autocrat kept changing her mind as 
to how many people that was supposed to be, and drove Dan and I round the 
bend, and we haven't done more than help out at a feast since.
The charge for feast includes lunch and dinner on Saturday, sometimes 
breakfast on Sunday. In Oldenfeld we often have a traveler's fare for 
whoever shows up on Friday night, as people from outside this immediate area 
have usually driven 3+ hours to get here. Many other events do this too. 
That's Trimaris.
