New Camping Area


New Camp Sites Added!

Thanks to funding from Pike County Commissioners and a lot of time and effort from Fair Board members the 2017 Fair will see 25 new campsites, plus an upgrade to the water hookups in the entire campground. A lot of hard work, skill and time away from family went into this project. If you see a Fair Board member please take a moment to thank him
