A familiar sign — one that helps people giving directions — has come down.

It’s the sign that used to be on State Road 60 by Rifle Range Road that read “Dusty’s Camper World.” It came down last week after being in that spot since 2001. The new sign that reads “Camping World” also marks the end of the name of the business that has been outside Bartow for 47 years.
