ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- MercyHealth Indoor Sports Center was packed with RV's and campers and anything else you might need for the great outdoors.

The 47th annual RV, Camping and Travel show came to town and several hundred people filled the sports complex. Five RV dealers and few dozen campgrounds were on site so answer people's questions. Attendees were able to participate in ax throwing and archery and yogi bear and a magician provided some additional entertainment.

"It's great for them to be able to see the different makes and models because otherwise you'd have to travel all over the state to do the same thing. So to be able to get in front of all these different representatives at once, really brings the public together for this," said show producer Andrew Rotolo.

Show producers tell us this is the tenth year the event was held at the Indoor Sports Center.
