Thursday 7/29 update #3: Aircraft parking/camping

Full updated parking information is always available at

Clear skies today helped dry aircraft parking areas in the North 40. North grass taxiways are now usable, but the ones south of Runway 9/27 are not. Most turf areas will not support twin-engine aircraft. Metal matting has been placed in critical soft spots on the turf taxiways.

Modified taxi procedures are being used to provide access to General Aviation Camping areas. As always, pilots should use extra caution whenever taxiing off of paved surfaces.

Fond du Lac (FLD) is is open for camping and parking aircraft.

Appleton (ATW) is accepting parking aircraft; camping is not allowed at Appleton.

Aircraft seeking aircraft camping or parking are also being accepted at Manitowoc (MTW), West Bend (ETB), Stevens Point (STE), Watertown (RYV), Portage (C47), and Dodge County (UNU).

Oshkosh showplane camping and parking areas are currently open for new arrivals. These areas accommodate:
- Experimental aircraft (homebuilts)
- Vintage Aircraft (manufactured prior to 1971)
- Warbirds
- Seaplanes
- Rotorcraft
- Ultralights

General Aviation Areas

When OSH opens after today's airshow, the General Aviation Camping Area and the General Aviation Parking Area will be closed to new arrivals. They will open later in the evening if there are sufficient number of departures to open spaces.

Twin-engine aircraft and heavy singles must seek accommodtions at one of the Oshkosh FBOs.
