Camping

The Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center is accepting reservations for the rest of the year!

The Campgrounds feature spaces that accommodate full hook-up and primitive camping. Full hook-up sites are available April through October (weather permitting). Electric-only hook-ups are available November through March (weather permitting); during this time, the dump station is closed.

You must make a reservation before arriving at the Fairgrounds to camp.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATION

You must select a campsite before your arrival! Click the button below to reserve your spot. Please fill out your stage range, unit type and unit length; then select SHOW AVAILABILITY.

Once the map has populated, click the blue and white box (on the map) with the name of the campsite available. Once the box has been selected, it will populate a new map with campsite numbers and availability. You can select the plus and minus sign in the left-hand corner of the map to enlarge.

Once you have selected a site number, a description will populate to the right side of the map with information on that space including length, amperage, and hook-ups. Click reserve at the bottom of the description to book your site!
