LaGrange Engine Show Camping
Campers, displays and equipment are not permitted on the fairgrounds before 5:00PM on Wednesday before the show. This also applies to marking off camping and display spaces. If you arrive before 5PM you will be directed to a staging area off the roadways.
A camper is defined as any motor home, trailer, truck camper or a tent with a capacity for three or more people. This means that the only people who do not have to pay to stay overnight are people sleeping in their car/truck or someone with a very small tent.
When your camper is in the fairgrounds it must display the owner’s name and phone number. Any camper without this information is subject to immediate removal.
- Camping Hours: Wednesday 5:00PM – Sunday Night. Campers must be removed by Monday after the show at noon.
- $40.00. This charge applies for one night or the entire show.
- Fee is paid at the Show Office in Building 19. Office hours are 8AM – 3PM on Friday and Saturday and 9AM – 3PM on Sunday.
- A camping permit will be issued after your fee is paid and must be displayed on your camper.
- Electricity and water are available in the two camping areas. They are not available on most spaces by displays or flea market areas. There is no additional charge for these and there is no discount if not available.
- There are no sewer hook-ups or dump stations. There is a dump station at Findley State Park on State Route 18 south of Wellington.
