Livestock and horse exhibitors who wish to park their camping and RV units on the fairgrounds during the State Fair must complete an Overnight Livestock Parking Reservation request.

Overnight Livestock Parking Reservation Request opens the Tuesday following Memorial Day (May 30, 2017) at 8 a.m. System closes July 31, 2017; no more requests will be accepted after that time.

This is a REQUEST for space only. NEW: A $60 deposit will be required at the time of request. The deposit will be applied to the total balance due on any camping reservation. For those who do not receive a spot or who cancel their request before July 31, the deposit will be refunded.

All requests made between 8 a.m. and 11:59 a.m. on Tuesday, May 30 will be put into a computer-generated lottery and will be filled in that order. Anyone who successfully completes a request in the first four hours will have an equal chance in securing a camping spot.

Requests made at noon or later will be filled or wait-listed in the order in which they are date- and time-stamped by the online process.

It is critical that accurate, measured dimensions are included in the reservation request; please do NOT provide estimated numbers.

EXACT dimensions of camping unit with slide-outs fully extended and including hitch, spare tire, rear or front carrier, in feet and inches:

  • length including tow vehicle (if applicable)
  • length excluding tow vehicle

Only one entry per exhibitor family will be considered.

Additional information, including rates, will be included in the Livestock/Horse Exhibitor Overnight Parking Information document when available.
