Parking for Regatta
Please refer to Venue Map at Midwest Scholastic Rowing Championship - Venue Map for clarification and locations of the
parking lots and the beach area as described.
Due to the limited amount of parking at the Beach regatta site, traffic will be controlled in the following ways:
Friday- Teams will be allowed to unload their boats and set-up their team tents on Friday without any restrictions as to
time and parking though the beach road access will be closed by the Park Rangers at 11pm.
***If you will be arriving after 11pm, please contact Martha Valentine by phone at 513-476-8969 ***
Teams are to place their boats to the right of the beach as they enter the beach area down the hill from the park entrance. After unloading the boats, trailers will be moved to the parking lot at the top of the hill (as you come down to the beach area). No trailers can remain at the beach due to the limited area and limited parking spaces. Team tents are to be set up in the marked area to the left on the grass between the pavilion and the beach. Tent placement is on a "first come” basis.
Teams will be allowed in the parking lot at the beach from 5:00am-
7:00am for unloading their boats and dropping off their teams and equipment.
Depending on the volume of traffic, the access to the beach area may be
curtailed at 7:00 am and you will be asked to park in one of the out-lying parking
lots. Cars with handicap tags will be allowed to park at the beach parking lot at all times.
3. Teams with buses are asked to unload at the farthest row from the entrance to
the parking lot. The curve at the end is a very tight fit for large tour buses and
East Fork State Park has limited bus turn around to that row due to damage to
the median. Buses will ONLY be allowed to park in the last parking lots. We ask
bus drivers to park at an angle in order to maximize space availability. Once those lots are filled buses will be
directed to park at an out-lying lot.
4. Teams will be allowed to load boats and equipment at the end of racing on
Saturday. At that time, access to the beach will be allowed as parking becomes
