Camper Village Information
2017 Golf Cart / ATV Permit Registration Form (PDF)
Attention Campers! You are invited to stay right on the grounds during the Oktoberfest Race Weekend in the popular Oktoberfest Race Weekend Camper Village! All of the camping inside the fairgrounds fence is reserved registered camping. There is a waiting list and if you would like to wait for a registered reserved space, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-786-1525. PLEASE NOTE: There also are reserved sections outside the fence, (1) along the fence line on the east side of the grounds, (2) along Cty Rd M along the east parking lot and (3) Between Pischke Motors and Auto Value Parts, (4) on the North end of the unreserved lot near the pit entrance, and (5) The Row along the Gravel access road to the pit entrance. The west lot near the empty Ford dealership is for the most part, open, “rough camping,” and Free to camp in.
The West Salem Youth Hockey Association again will be helping organize the camping areas and assist campers in finding a space to park. Any donations are appreciated by them and a portion of the reserved camping proceeds help them purchase equipment.
All camping areas open Monday October 2nd at Noon (Camping units are absolutely NOT permitted on the grounds until then) and all must be removed from the grounds by Tuesday October 10th at 9:00 am. We hope you enjoy your stay and thank you for being a part of the Oktoberfest Race Weekend!
