Showplane Camping Area Guidelines
(Vintage and Homebuilt Aircraft)

TYING DOWN YOUR AIRPLANE | JUDGING STANDARDS MANUAL

  • To camp in the Showplane Camping area, you must be an active EAA member, and your airplane must be eligible for judging in one of EAA’s judging categories. (Please see Judging Standards Manual.) If your aircraft is parked in this area you will be charged for camping.
     

  • Showplane camping is not allowed in the Warbird Area.
     

  • All showplanes must be tied down.
     

  • Only one tent per plane unless a second tent is needed for immediate family members.
     

  • All campsites must be paid for before setup. Always display proper camping credentials. Camping registration number must be easily visible.
      

  • Wristbands and program books may be purchased at the Registration building.
      

  • Proper daily or weekly wristbands must be worn on the flight line at all times.
     

  • The Oshkosh Fire Department strictly prohibits wood campfires and charcoal grills (per National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards) anywhere in the aircraft camping areas on Wittman Regional Airport grounds.
      

  • Careful use of white gas or propane fired camp stoves is allowed in showplane camping, provided they are used in an area well away from parked aircraft, and that the stove is attended at all times. It is strongly recommended that aircraft near the stove be checked for any fuel fumes or leakage, and the stove be elevated above ground level.
     

  • Please leave campsites the way you found them.
     

  • No pets.
     

  • Bicycles or personal transportation machines such as Segways are not allowed in showplane camping, or on the remainder of the Convention site. Those items are allowed in the General Aviation North 40 area and Camp Scholler. There is a bike parking area near the Theater in the Woods admission gate, as well as across from the North 40 Registration building.
     

  • Be courteous to your neighbors...keep area clean and neat and noise levels down. 

    Have a safe and enjoyable stay!
