These directions have been pre-planned with local police to minimize traffic and ensure safety. Please follow these directions to access the facility.
The Holding Area will be open starting at 8:00 a.m., Sunday, July 15, and remain open until Wednesday, July 18 at 5:00 p.m. A member of FMCA’s Parking Team will be on duty each day in the Holding Area from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. to assist with your arrival.
If you have a tow vehicle, the parking committee requests that you unhook it and have your co-pilot or another member of your party drive it onto the grounds separately so as not to hold up the parking operation.
If you wish to park close to friends, you must arrive together with appropriate admittance credentials and enter together or meet in the Holding Area. Identify your party by placing a piece of white 8 1/2-inch-by-11-inch paper in the window of each coach. Using a heavy black marker, write the last name of one of the members of your group followed by the position each motorhome occupies in relationship to the total number of motorhomes in your party (Smith 1 of 3; Smith 2 of 3; etc.). This is requested so parking personnel are aware that you wish to park near each other.
Departure will be on Sunday, July 22. Non-shore power electric will be turned off by 9:00 a.m. RVs should be off property by 12:00 p.m. If you are interested in staying longer, please call CAM-PLEX at (302) 682-0552 or visit the CAM-PLEX front desk to make these arrangements. Cost is $28.00 plus tax.
If you have an emergency while on the grounds, please call 911. The FMCA emergency contact phone number is (513) 909-1433. This number will be in operation beginning Tuesday, July 17, at 8:00 a.m.
