All camping is in one great location this year, so there will be a shuttle bus available exclusively to take campers to and from the campsite to the ballfield, absolutely FREE OF CHARGE. The new camping location is at 14343 Highway 25, Pierz, MN.

Currently, there are 63 RV sites still available from July 14th through July 16th, and 63 tent locations as well. The cost of both is $40 per night. RV length maximum is 40 feet long. Click HERE to book your camping preference.
