Thanks Colleen. It looks like the campground put some in the 400-500 section. I think there is both 30 & 50amp sites.

Hi Jamie,
Unfortunately Chuck and I have to cancel the reservation to this years Hershey RV Show. Both Chuck and I have been wanting to go for many years now, so I am very disappointed. We will try again next year! Hope you all have fun! I just got off the phone with the Harrisburg East Campground to cancel our site #405 as well.
Thank you.

Bette,
Thats awesome. I see Chuck and Pam had to cancel the reservation for Site 405 a few days ago. Maybe you can grab that site.

Bette, Hope you guys can find a spot. This is a large show in the area. I would say the largest and there are a lot of campgrounds, but they book up quick. Here is a couple other options. I personally have stayed at Conawago, Harrisburg East and Twin Grove. All nice.

Jim !!

Just wondering ?? Which show is larger ?? Hershey or Tampa ?? I understand that the Tampa show is a longer venture, as opposed to the 4 days of Hershey, but, are they comparable ??

Thx

Bill,

Both are absolutely huge. Hershey bills itself as the country's largest. Unsure what the metric is (attendance, rigs, square footage etc.).

To me, Tampa seems larger in terms of area. I'm sure each association publishes their numbers somewhere.

Update: Did some research... Tampa has been a bit bigger than Hershey.
2017 - Hershey: 64,242 attendance and about 1,300 RVs
2017 - Tampa: 70,527 attendance and about 1,500 RVs

Thanks again. See you next year.
