Guys, I've never been to Coolsprings and have a few questions. I live in Texas but may but up North during June so I think I may be able to make the June Expo.

I have a travel trailer. I'm confused by the flyer. Can I park my trailer on the grounds or off the grounds. If off the grounds can I walk to the show? Does it matter if I exhibit an engine whether or not I can park on the grounds?

Do folks sell engines, project engines or parts at this event or is this on the October show?

Thanks !!!!!

Dave they just dont allow camping on the engine grounds. There is a big area to the left side of the grounds you can set up. Hey its a 5 minute walk.

If you bring an engine you can park on the grounds. If not you have to park off grounds.You can easily walk to the grounds, it is primitive camping (no Hookups). If you want to sell there is a swappers fee, witch is $25.00. Please come and enjoy this magnificent show.

If you display engines, can you park your rv where your engines are displayed? Or, separate from the display area?

A word of caution when considering parking in the display area. The display area is near a small stream and when it rains the grounds can get very wet, and it seems to rain a lot, at least when I have attended. I have seem many campers and motor homes being towed out of the area. I would be sure to check the weather report and if rain is in the forecast, I would park on the high ground and walk to the show grounds. It is a great show and well worth your while to attend. I have attached two photos taken during the 2006 show. I believe these photos may have been taken at the the fall show but can't recall for sure. I attended one of the spring shows and actually walked in water ankle deep. My two cents for what it is worth.
