Air Show Camping
Air Show Camping is available on airport property at an affordable price (advance purchase only) during this event. For the weekend of the airshow, each guest will be required to have an airshow ticket for entry.
RV and large campers (20′ x 40′) pay $60 per night for camping with weekend guest passes at $25 each. Small campers and tents run $30 per night plus the cost of weekend passes.
The grounds offer general aviation, RV, camper and tent camping sites, but water and access to electricity is not provided. General admission options are available for camping guests at the airshow office. For more information or to make reservations call 706-291-0030 or email [email protected].
The WONG airshow offers a great time for aero enthusiasts as well as quality family time. They do have a few rules which restrict things like the placement of generators, and the parking of flatbed trucks over 10 feet long and other similar vehicles. No ATVS, bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, etc. are allowed.
However, commercial grills and above ground metal fire-pits are fine. For a complete list of the rules, be sure to visit their website.
