Jul 18, 2017 - 2018 Dates
We have received a lot of emails asking when the next Waupaca Boatride is. For those wondering, we are always scheduled around the second Saturday of July. The dates for 2018 are July 13-15.

Oshkosh will be host to both Lifefest and Rock USA on that same weekend, so hotel space will be extremely limited. You will want to book your hotels ASAP if that's the route you prefer for lodging.

Waupaca Boatride Volleyball Tournament - Camping

Camping registration for the 2017 Waupaca Boatride Volleyball Tournament is now open. Camping is a cheap alternative to hotels as it's one flat price for the whole weekend versus a per night rate. The campground is located right across the street from Brighton Acres and all of the festivities.

There are three types of campsites that you can register for: a 20x40 foot regular site ($55 for the weekend), a 20x40 foot family/quiet site ($55 for the weekend) and a 40x40 foot RV/double site ($90 for the weekend). Campsites are assigned on a first-come, first served basis. If you are camping in groups, you are going to want register sooner than later.

Please Note:
Due to some issues we've had in the past, we are no longer allowing the use of personal ATVs, Dirt Bikes, Scooters, Golf Carts or any other motorized vehicles. Please see the camping page for all of the details and rules.
