Campground for Tampa RV Show

Looking for a recommendation on a campground for a couple of nights so DW and I can attend the Tampa RV Show in January. Anything within 30 miles or so that doesn't double their normal rate just because of the show would work. (Capitalism is great but sometimes I just don't like to play...) We were going to boondock at the Fairgrounds but apparently they are full.

I don't think that Lazy days is ripping anyone off for 199.00. You get 3 day's full hook-up plus 3 days of meals. After paying at least 40.00 a night then eating for 3 days it really not a bad deal in my opinion.

I've stayed at Hillsborough SP, Lazy Days, and Happy Traveler and they were ok for a day or so. My favorite place in the area is Ft. Desoto but it is an hour away

Good Luck it's nuts around here for the RV show... DW and I live 7 miles away in Seffner. But parking is still crazy unless you're there when the gates open. See ya all there.

Is it possible to dry camp in the fairgrounds lot? Seem to remember a bunch of rigs in the parking lot.
