Camper Village Information
You are invited to stay right on the grounds during the Oktoberfest Race Weekend in the popular Oktoberfest Race Weekend Camper Village! Reserved camping is located both inside and outside of the Fairgrounds. As you can imagine, camping sites are limited. 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 is plans to improve the West Lot at the Fairgrounds, this will allow us to convert that area to a reserved camping area as well. There still will be “open” camping- where there is no charge to camp. That will be located on the far West parking lot.
The campgrounds open on the Monday prior to the event. Not BEFORE. Units will be towed.
We hope you enjoy your stay and we are excited to have you be a part of the Oktoberfest Race Weekend!
