RV Site Rental Information

  •  SAFF can provide a limited number of full hook-ups for Recreational Vehicles on the Grounds of the Western NC Agricultural Center at a cost of $20/night.
  • RV Site locations are along the fence by Fanning Bridge Road; on the right-hand side of the Sales Arena; and in front of Barns A & B.
  • Campers will need to bring a splitter for water, as most of the locations share 1 hydrant between 2 sites.
  • Site selection is based on first-come-first-served. Specific RV sites are not reserved, because there is no way for us to police this across the board.
  • All RV’s must post their RV Pass on the passenger’s side of their windshield where it can be easily seen from outside. (These passes indicate what nights have been paid for.)
  • Unless you are a vendor, you MUST fill out a RV Site Reservation Form RV Site Registration 2014 and mail it to Laura Walters. If you are unable to download the Reservation Form, contact Laura to have them sent to you.
