Fair-Time Camping
Staying on grounds at a campsite is a great way to enjoy the fun and festivities of the Missouri State Fair, Missouri’s largest agricultural event! Every August, thousands of Fairgoers from across the Midwest park their trailers and hitch their tents during the Fair. Whether it’s a vacation or family reunion, stop by for a night – or 11 days – and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Missouri State Fair.

Reservations are accepted only for long-term (full eleven-day period) Fair-time camping. For details, view the Missouri State Fair Camping Page.
