Early indications from this year’s WBAY Camping and RV Expo in Green Bay are showing a positive year for camper sales and campground owners. Attendance at this year’s expo was up 10% according to Quietwoods RV president Steve Neuville, translating into a lot of interest in buying new equipment and scheduling family vacations. Neuville says he noticed people were considering many different options, especially smaller campers.
According to the Outdoor Industry Foundation, camping and other outdoor recreation opportunities contribute over $9.7 billion annually to Wisconsin’s economy, generating over 129,000 jobs and $570 million in tax revenue.
