Delaware State Fair

We may go to the Delaware State Fair next weekend. This will be our first time.

All information and any suggestions are welcome. Specifically about traveling there and Motorhome parking. Also non RV posts are also welcome.

Thanks,

Bobby

Why? Ok that's not a fair question. Pun not intended. I don't know if you can park an RV there. You can if you are an exhibitor. Not sure if you can as spectator. You do have a CG about 6 miles north, Killen's Pond State Park. Which is really convenient by location. Couple other CGs around but not real close. Not full hook up but loop c has 50 amp and water. All have 30 and water. Thurs night, first night used to be free but I don't think that is the case anymore. Its been a really long time since I have gone. There is a casino in the fairgrounds which has a good resturant inside. Discount coupons can be had at local resturants and businesses. Saturday nights tend to be the busiest usually because of big concerts and other shows. If you have more specific questions I can get you answers.

traveling to the fair is no problem. Right on Rt 13. Easy in and out. Not sure about motorhome parking there. Killens Pond is close as stated, but larger sites are at Trap Pond, about 45 minutes south. I camp there often.

Thanks Guys. We may just do a day trip from PA.

Future in-laws live in Laurel and offered their driveway as a parking spot for the RV. There should be several cars to take us to the fair but I prefer to use my RV.

This will be my first visit to the fair. My wife says we are also going to the Maryland State Fair.

I think day parking should not be a problem but as said NO on camping as it is for exhibitors only and there is a waiting list. My friend is on the board there and he is in charge of parking the rv's that stay, takes him almost a week to get everyone in their place with the regulations for spacing required. Have fun at the fair it is usually pretty good there, and get a scrapple sandwich!!!!!

You do know why it's called "scrapple," right? Eater beware...

It is a acquired taste, we always tell everyone try it first then we will tell you what's in it. Remember in that area they also eat muskrat

No, Muskrat was in Symrna at the old Wagon Wheel restaurant. But yes a scrapple sandwich is really good. You won't eat that PA scrapple again.

You can park RV for day use only but parking lot will be either really dusty or muddy. Just a heads up on that.

Thanks for the heads up.

FWIW, I don't eat scrabble. Never had it but have seen plenty of people gorging on the Philadelphia version.

Can not think of the name... But had a friend, father was a park ranger at Ridley Creek who lived on Knowlton Rd next to the scrapple factory...
