Campers arriving prior to 9am will be directed to wait elsewhere in order to keep roads in and around the Fairgrounds open for local traffic.

The campground closes at 12:00PM (noon) on Monday, July 22nd

For those with a 30 amp power and water hookup camping pass, an RV connection will be provided. RV power connections are 30 Amp service and may be up to 75ft away from your RV space. Please bring 50-75ft of power cord. If your RV requires 50 Amp service, you must purchase the 50 Amp Camping Pass as this will require a different connection. 50 Amp hookup and RV with no hookup RV spaces DO NOT come with a water connection.
 
For water hook ups, we highly recommend to bring a longer water hose (50ft+) along with a splitter for the water lines since the water hook ups are shared. Note: The campground staff does not carry this equipment. Cords, power connectors and adaptors and other RV supplies can be purchased online or at your local RV shop.
