     Some common questions answered:

Do we have Showers and Bathrooms?    Yes, we have permanent flush toilets and showers. there are about 37 shower stalls in EACH the men's and women's show areas.  We also provide portable toilets. 

Water and Power?  yes, ALL powered sites also have water hookups.  You can easily find a hose spigots here to fill your tanks if you do not have a site with water. There is drinking water near the bathroom facility in the campground as well as a place to fill water jugs.

Do you have an RV dump station?  Yes, some sites actually have sewer hookups, but we do have a dump station on site as well. they ask for a $2-3 donation to dump your tanks.

Can we have fires?    Yes, as long as they are contained.  If you have an old semi truck rim or some sort of fire ring, please bring it.  Please make sure to extinguish all fires before leaving and DO NOT burn anything with glass, nails or other non burnable materials. The EAA lets you have fires right on the ground in your site.

Can I bring my dog?   Yes, but as always, it can be stressful for them in large crowds of people. We welcome your pets as long as you clean up after them and leave any aggressive pets at home. You will be asked to leave if your pet causes any problems.

Do you have WiFi?  Yes, there is a FREE wifi building in the campground. 

Can I bring my own food and beverages? We prefer you purchase food and beverages on site. It supports the venue and local food vendors. We provide food from breakfast to close, so you don't need to bring anything if you don't want to.  Campers are allowed to carry in to their sites, please do not carry into the show area. Please do not bring any glass containers. Coolers and glass carry ins are NOT allowed in the main show area, but of course we expect campers and vendors to bring their own food and supplies.  Just keep it in your site. We enforce a no cooler, no glass and no personal container rule for the main show area. We will not hassle you walking around with beer, soda cans or water bottles in the main show area as beverages are sold all over. Don’t be stupid and try to sneak in with a huge sippy cup full of booze! Telling us it is Kool Aid will get you kicked out! “But I don’t drink Beer!” ....well, we have a liquor license on site and will be serving mixed drinks. 

Can I bring my golf cart or mobility scooter?  Yes.  We require any vehicles to provide proof of insurance or proof of disability for use.  You will be required to check in all vehicles with our staff and once you do that, you will have access to near the entire grounds with your vehicle. Of course, if you park in non designated spots and block someone's perfect photograph opportunity or hot rod around with your golf cart, you may quickly lose your privileges.  These are for SAFE transportation. If we see anyone drinking and driving, we will ask you to park your vehicle.  Understand that all laws must be followed.

*********This facility IS a real campground, unlike our previous venue. You will find services here as you will at most campgrounds. As we continue to grow, we will have more features available to us here at the EAA. Each year gets better and better!!
