View Larger Map

Directions:

From Interstate 43: take exit 25 onto State Route 67 North (S Lincoln St); continue just over 1 mile and turn right on
E Court St. Site will be half a mile ahead on your right.

From Highway 12: take exit 321 for County Road NN and head west toward Elkhorn. At the first light, turn right onto
Lincoln St. At the second stop sign, turn Right onto Court St. The street will bend toward your left and you will see
the main gate to the fairgrounds on your right.

Site Information:

  • Site Rule #1: Play nice, share the toys, and don’t do anything stupid.
  • “Wet” site – please be responsible. When in doubt, check ID.
  • The site is mostly handicap-accessible.
  • THERE ARE SHOWERS!!!
  • The site is mostly level with some shaded areas. There are electrical connections of the type used for RVs – a limited number of converters for CPAP machines and the like are available at Troll. There will be a designated quiet camping area (although it is not shady).
  • We are not renting the entire site – there may be folk using other areas. Please be courteous, especially when driving through the site or encountering horses.
  • Because there will be other, non-attendees that could potentially wander in, we will be checking site tokens regularly to ensure everyone has signed in and is covered by SCA insurance (via waivers).
  • Please unload at your campsite and move your vehicle back to the parking area as quickly as possible. There will be a designated handicap-parking area; ask at Troll for directions.
  • We will have a large fire pit for bardic activities – please check the schedule when posted or at Troll.
  • Above-ground fires are permitted so long as they do not damage the turf. Please do not bring in firewood from outside a 50-mile radius of the area (to avoid transporting insect infestations). A list of firewood vendors will be available at Troll. DO NOT LEAVE FIRES UNATTENDED – SECURITY PATROLS WILL BE EMPOWERED TO EXTINGUISH ANY UNATTENDED FIRES. All fires must have some sort of extinguisher – bucket of sand, (dedicated) bucket of water, fire extinguisher, etc – in easy reach.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Like any large event, there are always things that need doing. If you would like to volunteer a few hours as a WaterBearer, Longshoreman, Gatekeeper, Marshal or Security Patrol, please contact the appropriate staff person in advance or stop by Troll during the event. Thank you!
