Campsites near Winnebago factory

We're planning to visit the Winnebago factory in June (love factory tours). I see they have RV spots at the visitor center, at a city park nearby, and at a state park about 4 miles away. Any suggestions on where to stay? I anticiapte styaying only one night, then heading back east.

By all means, stay at the Visitor Center! The factory tour leaves from the Visitor Center, there are coaches on display there, and parking is free!

I agree with staying at the Visitor Center. Service is right across the street. 50 amp service should be free. No water or sewer. There is also camping right beside the Service Center. I have stayed overnight in the Service Center parking lot right outside the door. All free.

Pammel Park in Forest City was very nice when we stayed there several years ago, and it was not crowded. There was 50A electric.

However, if the visitor center campground at Winnebago is free, you can't beat that. The park is close by, but if you're only there for one night, the visitor center is certainly convenient.

I didn't look close enough at your message. I was thinking you had a Winnebago and were going there for service. I would call ahead and ask when the tours are and stay across the street at the Visitors Center.
Contact
Also you could stop at Lichtsinn Motors in Forest City to see what they have on display.

Thanks for the advice. We'll try for the visitors center and use the city park as a backup.

I believe the tours are twice a day, I will confirm with them before we arrive. Thanks!

Keith, BE CAREFUL! After looking at the coach displays and taking the factory tour, you may find yourself being pulled toward Lichtsinn Motors to purchase your NEW Winnebago.

Oh, Oh, and then Keith would have to stay for the GNR in July. And the Puckerbrush parade, and, and ----. Could be another happy Winnebago owner.

I agree stay at the factory park.. I mean you paid for it when you bought your rig.

Many RV factories either offer very low cost camping or free to their customers

For example.. I spent a weekend in Pender, NE.. Home of Blue OX.. and depending on how you figure it it either cost me $0.00 (parking fee) or.. A couple hundred (What I bought from the factory next door)

Damon.. I've spend 3 nights in their lot as well.. $0.00 parking, about 100K for the motor home (Very rounded)

As you can see.. Customer benefit.

RedT, I have to be careful at the Mh dealers. I went in for a generator oil filter and came home with this coach!
