We are headed to Punkin Chunkin. This will be our first time attending the event. We have decided against camping at the event since the camping is in a corn field and don't want chance getting the coach stuck in the mud. We will be camping at Killens Pond State Park and driving the toad over.

Anyone else planning to attend?

Wish we could, but currently near Bryce Canyon, Utah. Went to many of the early years along RT 1. Amazing machines. Have some Dogfish Head beer and Grotto pizza for me.

We live about a mile from the Chuck site and if it rains good the field can get MUDDY. Killens is a good choice!!!

We are thinking about it. Went last year. Camped at the chunk. Killens, a favourite, is a bit of a drive. Part of the specialness of things like the Chunk is actually being there. I would not sweat the mud. They are usually prepared to tow you out. Getting stuck is all part of the adventure. I got stuck at Oskosh Air Adventure last year. Got myself out minutes before the monster farm tractor showed up to tow me out.

We camped at the Chunk last year and were lucky with the dry weather but could see where the campground could get muddy very easily. The issue you will have driving to the Chunk is the traffic. Plan on getting an early start. Local radio stations were reporting gridlock in the whole area with some people saying they spent as much as 3 hours in stop and go traffic to get to the site. If it is nice weather they get a huge crowd. That said whether you stay there or drive there it is sure to be fun!

HA! - No farm tractor hooking to the front of my coach. We have ATV's when we want to play in the mud. I'll take chance of waking the kids up early and braving the traffic.

If the weather looks like it will be fine we will be there camping in the hay field with everyone else. Last year was cold & it was nice having the warm trailer handy.

Will probably be at Killens for a few days before the Chunk.

This will be our first time to Killens. Are the sites large enough for a 40' Class A?
