Hard Rock Casino/Motel is very close to the show.

They say attendees are required to arrive with Toad disconnected. Where would one who is not familiar with the area do that?

Hi johnnyringo,
It depends on when you arrive. If you get there first thing in the morning on the first day of the show there should be plenty of room to disconnect your toad. To be on the safe side, one can use the Camping World parking lot or the Lazy Days CG registration area. Both are about 7 miles from the fair grounds. On I4, get off at the Seffner exit (I think it's exit 10). Go north about 1/4 mile. There will be a Flying J on your left. Go past the J (about 1/4 mile) and turn into the Lazy Days CG (left turn). Unhook in the registration area and proceed to the fair grounds.

If you want to stop at CW, turn left at the J and follow the road (watch the signs) to CW. You can also unhook there and then proceed to the fair grounds.

For me it is more expensive stopping at CW. I just can't resist going in and buying something.

I do not believe that the Lazy Days CG is going to allow you to pull into their check in area to disconnect your toad. They usually have check in people during the RV show week. There are two rest stops on I75 not too far from the show.

Hi Donr827,
My personal experience does not match your post.

Like Gary said on the 10th when you come in the Martin L King entrance they have a large staging area to unhook.
Another spot would be if you are coming from the East get off Exit 10 I-4 make a Left go about 2 miles to Walmart at MLK and unhook there than head West on MLK to Fairground entrance.

Hi johnnyringo,
Your post #22 is confusing to me. What is your question? What form are you referring to?

Hi GBerner,
My assumption is you are a day guest. Do you have a handicap placard? If so there is plenty of handicap parking near the entrances to the show. If no handicap parking, experience says they will treat you like any other vehicle and you'll be directed to the next available parking space. I've seen bikes parked with the cars all over the parking lots. I have never seen a special place for bikes.

The only thing being a senior citizen will get you is a $1 off at the gate on Wednesday. Most everyone who attends is a senior citizen.

The state fair authority will also collect a sizeable parking fee before you even get to the gate.

I have been to woodworking shows there when they allowed motorcycles to park along the fence to the right of the ticket gate at the US 301 entrance.

I was referring to post #21 which stated "when you arrrive on the 10th"..

The form I was referring to is the Super Really Confirmation form I received after I registered/signed up. It states "NO Early Birds! Only registered groups are permitted to arrive on Tuesday, Jan. 10th at their designated times".

I was not posing a question ( in that post anyway)...
