So this will be my first PorcFest that I will be attending this year. I will be traveling from about 2-3 hours away, but can only stay for 2 days, 1 night. I was surprised to find out that camping was not included in the ticket price. I was even more surprised when I found out that to book a camp site, you are required to book a minimum of SEVEN NIGHTS with Roger's Campground. And lastly, I was surprised to find from reading the boards that apparently all of the other accommodations at nearby hotels are booked up.
In all honesty, I am somewhat disheartened at the lack of options available for this event. Part of the attraction for me is not having to drive around after I've arrived; but rather have a chance to camp next to, and get to know other like-minded people attending. Isn't that the point of having a festival at a giant farm? I've been to about 6 multiple day festivals before, and never been to one where camping is not included in the price. Then to find out that I may have to drive 10-15 minutes away to rent a hotel room somewhere...is there some other option that I am missing here? Am I overlooking some obvious aspect?
