Important! Driving Instructions & Gate access for Saturday
Road closure for traffic control Saturday 9:30 AM — 5:30 PM!!
The road will be closed at Fairgrounds Rd NW and Tibardis, and at Nels Nelsen Rd NW and Stampede. SCA day trippers should come to the site from the west on Fairgrounds Rd NW to arrive at the SCA gate on Fairgrounds Road (in the southwest corner of the map, below). The modern public should come from the north on Nels Nelsen Road NW to access the public entrance gate.
Do your feet get tired? Just want some help getting around? We have golf cart routes to help you get where you need to be! Notice the numbered cart stops on the map? That’s where you go to get picked up, then just let your driver know where you need to go. (Sorry, but no dogs are allowed to ride — we have no way to secure them in the carts and keep them safe!)
