GREENVILLE (WLUK) -- Additional off-site camping sites are now available during Oshkosh's EAA AirVenture this summer.

Appleton International Airport says it will offer camping during the event at its new campground, Camp Flying Fox, from July 22 to July 30.

An hourly shuttle will run to and from EAA grounds in Oshkosh from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.

"We are thrilled to offer camping this summer during EAA AirVenture," said Abe Weber, airport director. "Pilots have been asking for on-site camping for years."

Camping sites cost $20 per night, including shower facilities, charging stations, barbecue grills and charcoal. On-site rental cars are also available.

Appleton International Airport will continue to offer aircraft parking. Last year, the airport hosted 585 aircraft and over the past three years, aircraft landing at Appleton International Airport has grown more than 12 percent during EAA.

EAA AirVenture is July 24-July 30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
