I don't think I've ever popped open a tent anywhere because it was a cheaper place to sleep. As long as the temperatures aren't too oppressively hot, I almost always sleep better in camp than a hotel bed. However, I've been camping for several years off the bike and have my camping kit pretty well sorted for every contingency.
That said, camping in mid-summer in the part of the country you're going to be riding - no thanks. I agree with Doc on that feeling. I might still bring my camping stuff just in case I found a higher altitude bucolic spot to spend a night but I wouldn't have much expectation that I'd use it. I often bring it on my longer trips because I can get my entire camp packed into about 30 liters of space on the bike with my table and chair strapped to the top of the panniers.
