Camping Fees

   If you would like, you may camp right on Mid-America Motorworks property. There would be a small charge but having the convenience of being right there at the festival more than covers the charge. The fees will be $20 a night for class A motorhomes. $15 a night for all class C motorhomes. $10 a night for all 5th wheel and pull behinds. And $5 a night for all tents.

   The sizes of the camp sites will be 45'x20' for class A. 35'x20' for class C. 20'x20' for all pull behinds. And 15'x15' for all tents.

   You are free to cook outside if you use a cook stove or a grill. We ask that you use the space in front of your camp site away from all other campers so as to insure a safety zone. There are to be NO open fires pits anywhere near the campsites.

   Since this is not a real campground but only an open area, there won't be any utilities so this will be primitive camping only. 

​   Please be sure to dump at one of the many rest areas along I-57.

   There will be a garbage dumpster near the campground so please make sure that all refuse is put inside the dumpster and to discourage any wild animals from looking for an easy meal, please make sure the lids to the dumpster are closed at all times.
