This summer, go exploring, camping in beautiful NYS

CNY RV Show comes to the Fairgrounds March 1-4

Free shuttles will take visitors to and from the parking lot and between buildings. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be on hand to greet visitors, help on the shuttles and give demonstrations.

Oot said about 15,000 people attend the show every year.

“Saturday is the busiest day,” he said. “Thursday and Friday tend to be a little slower, especially during the day, so that’s a great time to come and kind of peruse what we’ve got, especially with the half-price tickets on Thursday.”

Oot also encouraged families to check out the show.

“RVing is a great way to go, especially with the family, whether it’s just over the weekends or for a big vacation,” he said. “In New York alone, there are hundreds of campgrounds, whether you’re going to the Adirondacks or really anywhere in the state.”

The same is true throughout the nation, with more than 16,000 campgrounds throughout the country.

“Pretty much any destination you’re thinking about, there’s a campground nearby, whether it’s a private campground or one of the state-run ones,” Oot said. “The same is true throughout the country. Let’s say you’re going to Disney. They have a campground along with their hotels. Every resort has a campground. You can bring your own things, sleep in your own bed, there’s no airport delays or cancelled flights.”

RVing also provides a good bonding experience for the family.

“The great thing about RVing in terms of the family is that it kind of forces you to be together,” Oot said. “There’s not as many distractions and you’re not all going in different directions. Throughout the trip each day and for the vacation itself, you’re spending time together, from the morning until the campfire at night.”
