May 23, 2018 - Camping Registration is Open
Waupaca Boatride Volleyball Tournament - Camping

Camping registration for the 2018 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 ($65 for the weekend), a 20x40 foot family/quiet site ($65 for the weekend) and a 40x40 foot RV/double site ($115 for the weekend).

Note:
The 2018 campgrounds will be on a different property this year (see below). Due to wet weather conditions, we've been unable to work on or map the new grounds yet, which means we can't allow people to choose their own site locations. Sites will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. If you need to organize sites with others, please try to register on the same day and use the Notes section to let us know who you want to be near. We will do our best to group sites together.

Once we have a detailed campground map completed, we will email site number confirmations to people that have registered. We should have the map finished by the end of June.
