RVing at Høstfest
August 17, 2016
Many people who attend Norsk Høstfest don’t ever actually leave during the course of the event—because they make their home right on the grounds themselves. The RV park is a hub of activity filled with campers and motorhomes from across North America, all converging on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds for the festival.
The experience of camping on-site draws hundreds of guests to make their stay in the RV park an annual event. Bob and Elaine Yackley drove in from Onida, SD, for the first time four years ago, and now Høstfest has become a highlight of their fall adventures.
“The camping is very good,” Yackley says. “We like being able to park on a hard surface, we’re able to plug in and have heat and electricity, and we like visiting with people from all over the world.”
Being part of the RV park adds a unique element of community to the Høstfest experience, and allows for easy back and forth access to and from the festival. Free shuttles run between the campground and the festival throughout the day.
“There’s a lot of bang for the buck at Høstfest,” Yackley says. “For what it costs to get in, to be able to attend as many free stages as you want during the day and never feel rushed, it’s really one of a kind. I think it’s one of the best kept secrets in North America.”
Camping spots are still available in the RV park for the 2016 festival; call the Høstfest office at 701-852-2368 to book today (Good Sam discount ends September 18).
