There are 10’x10’, 20’x20’ and 20’x40’ tents available to rent. Tent rentals are an option, not required. Reserve your prime spot and cheer on your teammates! If you are a smaller club and would like to reserve a space with another team we can accommodate that too!

Parking:  Parking is free on Friday, however Saturday and Sunday the cost is $5.00 per day for all vehicles, except vehicles hauling boat trailer and car topped boats which will receive a parking pass.  There are additional paid parking lots to the North of the venue. There will also be one additional support vehicle parking Pass per team. Parking passes will be distributed by the parking attendant to the arriving teams.

Team Buses:  From a safety stand point, team buses are only allowed to drop off and unload their teams and they must exit the island and park to the North of the venue in the parking lot next to spots authority.  When picking up teams, we ask that the buses do not enter the island and wait until the entire team is in the drop off loop and ready to load onto the bus.
