Madison Parking - Anyone Also Attend In 2011?

Recommended Posts

We would like to hear (PM is fine, too ) from anyone who attended FMCA 2011 reunion at Madison.

Specific questions for those attending in 2011 are:

- where was your assigned parking? Pro & cons if parked at Alliant center parking?
- if Alliant, did you dry camp w MH gen only power source?
- if electrical 50 amp, were you parked at Lake Farm Park?
- if Lake Farm, were you in campground spaces (entrance on Lake Farm Rd), or on grassy near shelters/group camping (enter from Libby Rd)?
- if Lake Farm, did you feel isolated from events/seminars/ & "the rally atmosphere"?
- if Lake Farm, how frequent did shuttle buses run between Lake Farm and Alliant Rally site?
- if Lake Farm, what security if any did FMCA provide, asking bec "non-campers" coming onto Lake Farm cg mentioned on RV Park Reviews
- if Lake Farm w your pet, does parked off site from Alliant Center hamper your ability to check pet & still participate in FMCA activities held at Alliant?

Last, would you/ are you going to Madison FMCA 2015 again? Why / why not?

Thanks for sharing firsthand Madison experiences with first-time Rally hopefuls!

Hello, Bluebirds.

The beautiful Lake Farm Park facility received many positive comments from the 2011 attendees and several have requested being parked there again in 2015. Its lakeshore setting (complete with fishing pier and boat launch) is enhanced with 3 large pavilions, picnic areas, Frisbee golf, walking/biking trails, and a nature/historical information center. There will be plenty of green space to exercise your pet(s). Showers and restroom facilities are available.

The LFP is a short 3-mile ride in the air conditioned motor coaches provided by FMCA. A Package Check will be available in the Exhibition Hall to hold your treasures until you are ready to return to LFP.

Should you opt to commute in your tow car you can park in Lot S at the Alliant Energy Center entering through the John Nolen Gate. Your tow car hanger will grant free access to that lot.

Both 30 Amp and 50 Amp service are available at LFP but with the lake breezes and the mild summer climate in Madison you may find that 50 Amp service will not be needed.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office has indicated they receive very few calls regarding LFP and they have agreed to step up their routine checks during our stay. Should you have any other questions or special needs just contact the Events Department at (800) 543-3622.

We look forward to seeing you at Madison!
