Camping (during the Ohio State Fair only)

The 2021 Ohio State Fair will not be open to the public, and will instead focus on agricultural and educational competitions for exhibitors, and their families and guests.

Exhibitor camping will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations will not be required or accepted. Camping will begin on Monday, July 12th.


The rate will be $50 per day.


Camping will be available in the Korbel East, North and West Campgrounds and in a designated area on the grounds.
