RV and Camping Accommodations
73rd National Square Dance Convention® is not offering a group rate for RV camping. Read a letter from our General Chairmen to find out why below.
Thank you for registering for the 73rd National Square Dance Convention® being held in Milwaukee, WI. June 26-29, 2024.
Our published rates for camping were based on a verbal agreement with the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds RV Park. As we proceeded towards signing a formal contract, the park unexpectedly raised the rates by a significant amount resulting in a cost to our campers of more than $100 per night. This is about 30 percent higher than the rates already published for those same dates in 2024 on their web site, and for which they are actively accepting reservations. They refused to consider any lower nightly pricing for our group.
This was incredibly disappointing to us and was a dramatic change in their position from our earlier discussions. We do not believe our campers should have to pay that marked-up price. We also do not believe you would be satisfied with such a premium over their already-premium nightly rates.
After lengthy discussions with our camping staff, our convention leaders and the National Executive Committee, we feel it is in everyone’s best interest for the 73rd National Square Dance Convention® to not offer a group rate for RV camping. Instead, we will provide you with a list of campgrounds in the general vicinity (below) and ask you to select your preferred location and make your own private reservations. We will also be unable to offer bus transportation to and from the original camping site.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Any camping deposit you have already made through our convention registration process will be refunded to you within the next few weeks.
As an alternative to camping, we have two convention hotels which are connected by skywalks to the Baird Center, formerly known as the Wisconsin Center, where the convention will be held. Our host hotel, the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, offers $5.00 per day parking with in and out privileges included. The hotel rate for the both of our hotels, Hilton and Hyatt Regency Milwaukee, is $169 per night, based on double occupancy, plus applicable taxes and fees.
For a Great Convention, in a Great City, on a Great Lake, we look forward to welcoming you to Milwaukee, WI, June 26th – 29th, 2024.
