Fairtime Camping

It’s 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 by and experience America’s classic State Fair.
