You can always add the skid plates afterwards, or have the dealer install them at sale time should you be worried.
Most "camping" terrain can be done with a 2wd Honda, so the Summit would be overkill.
It will do surprisingly bad trails if you are careful with wheel placement.
I've got an Overland with OR-II, but it is pretty rare that I ever bother to engage any of the off-road modes on it, no need to most of the time.
Go for it.
