RAGBRAI LI Day Passes are still available!

Is there camping the night before (21st)?

Hi folks,

My wife is going to drop me off in Sioux Center for the Expo on the 21st and continue on to Michigan to see her dad. So the question I have is:
Do I need to find a room in Sioux Center (unlikely) or will there be camping the night of the 21st in Sioux Center?

There will definitely be camping the Saturday before the ride, and probably that Friday also.  The ride starts bright and early, and for some dark and early, Sunday the 22nd, so most everyone will be camped out the night before in Sioux Center.  It will be just like all the other over night towns, except you won’t be tired yet.  There will be an Expo and kick off entertainment……a good time all around.

I wonder when people start to show up.  I always try to get to the start town Friday afternoon.  It is the “relaxing” part of the vacation, and I highly recommend it if you can do it.  There are always people there already.  It is fun feeling the energy build over the weekend.
