Fairtime camping is a great way to enjoy the fun and festivities of Iowa’s biggest celebration! Every August, thousands of Fairgoers from all over the Midwest park their trailers and pitch their tents during the Fair. Whether it’s a vacation or a family reunion, stop and see why nothing compares to the Iowa State Fair.

Accommodations for tents can always be made if campers are not particular on placement. Tent campers follow the same procedures as other campers. Please see the non-registered camper information packet for further details.
