Over the years, we have found that you will get a better price by shopping online for a hotel. We highly suggest booking very early as this is a holiday weekend and the hotels and air B&B's fill up early.
There is no RV/Camper overnight parking available. We can highly recommend two local campgrounds; North Beach Camp Resort and Anastasia State Park. Both are just a short drive from the show and offer spacious campsites with full hookups.
North Beach Camp Resort
Anastasia State Park
