Each meeting features a half day market place where campground owners make their spring purchases. The second half of the day features guest speakers.

The first day of convention features a trade show of suppliers that serve the camping industry and our members spend a great deal of time walking the trade show and getting to know our associate members and the services they provide. Don’t be surprised if you walk away with new clients or orders as our campground owners begin planning for the campground season ahead.
