The Silver Dollar Fairgrounds is a great affordable and convenient option for participants wishing to stay the night in Chico. The fairgrounds facilities include flushing toilets and showers as well as power options. Pets are allowed, but must be on a leash and attended to at all times. Reservations for Non-Hook Up Camping and Hook-Up Camping are strongly encouraged and you can Reserve your Spot HERE or when you REGISTER. Camping location is based on a first come first-serve basis. Camping reservations can be made on site as well. Although we have plenty of space available, you'll want to arrive as early as possible to secure a good spot.
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AS THINGS HAVE CHANGED FOR 2019:
Only the North Entrance will be open.
Camping reservations will be checked daily.
Camping is charged by tent, vehicle (if camping inside vehicle) and each hook-up vehicle.
For example, if you have an RV and setup a tent as well, you will need to pay for both the RV (if hooked up $45) and tent ($25) per night. Note: This is how the fairgrounds calculates and charges Chico Velo. So, we have to charge accordingly
