Camping and other amenities
The new site for 2018 star party is also an airport and camping is on the taxiway alongside the runway. Most of the taxiway is hard-packed turf, which does not get muddy. Camping on the runway is not allowed. You may park your car at your campsite, unless you plan to leave after dark. Plenty of space is available. The far end of the field is reserved for those who wish to park their large RV's on the taxiway, and for those running generators, in consideration for other campers and observers. Please be advised there are no electrical hookups at any site. Read below if you are looking for charging stations.
Camping fees are collected at the registration desk upon arrival, and 100% goes to the property owner. His rates are $10 per person per night, all ages, or $25 per night per family (families consisting of two adults only and children under 17, members residing at the same address).
Please consult registration desk if you have any questions or to see where the various facilities are located.
