Places like Wall End, Langdale are now no more than pop up towns , full of all manner of junk, dragged up the M6 in ever bigger 4x4s and "leisure vehicles" The over night fees will rocket and what was once a budget hoiliday for young people of limited means will be just another catch penny.
Compare and contrast with e.g. Mongolian or Bedouin encampments where they really are "popup towns", have been for centuries, and quite untenable without pack animals to carry the tentage. I would suggest that inhabitants of such might find your ideas of what camping is all about to be a bit weird and niche.
Young people of limited means can still camp minimally and cheap or free if they want. And folk that want to go glamping can do that too, if they want.
