Electricity will not be provided; however, teams may bring generators . Teams may also bring RVs, travel trailers, etc.

Portable restrooms will be on-site , as well as locations to fill containers with water.  The park also has a public restroom.

All BBQ teams will enter the park at the BBQ Team entrance. Teams will not be permitted to allow any guests vehicles to park at their team spot . Only the vehicles of team members competing will be allowed onto the grounds. This is to reduce congestion and to keep areas open in the case of an emergency. Teams that do not abide by this rule will be asked to leave the premises.
