If it's for EAA, hope you have a reservation. Otherwise, you'll be camping near Detroit.

We just got back from Oshkosh/Airventure. Camped at Camp Scholler where they have hundreds of water/electric sites and innumerable dry camping sites.
We dry camp every year and get there early, usually the Thursday before the opening of the show and found some really nice sites. They have room for thousands of RV's, tents, etc.
The water and electric sites are by reservation only and sell out about 2 weeks before the opening of the show. Beware that when you make the reservation online, you pay from that date forward until the end of the event, even though you may not arrive until some time in the future. In other words, if you make your reservation on July 1, you will pay for about 4 weeks of camping even though you don't arrive until July 20th.
Dry camping sites are paid from arrival date until the end of the event with a refund available if you leave after a minimum stay (I believe 3 days).
Dogs are now welcome anywhere on the campground, but please keep them on a leash and pickup after them. It can get quite warm in your RV so plan on running your generator and A/C if you are going to leave them in the RV during the day. There are limited sites allowing 24 hour generator use while most others allow generator use from 0700 to 10 PM.
There are several large shower houses scattered around the campground. Most have curtained stalls while the newer ones have enclosed stalls. There are also 2 camp stores that sell food, ice and some camping supplies. Walmart is about 2 miles away and sells everything you may need.
There is a 4 bay dump station available with fresh water. They also have a mobile pumpout service available for $50. I choose to break camp and dump and fill with fresh water midweek before returning to my site. We use the multiple Porta Potties scattered around the campground for solid waste. They are cleaned daily and are practically odorless.
All in all, camping at Oshkosh/Airventure is a wonderful experience where you will make new friends and renew old friendships every year. The bonus is the daily airshows and tons of exhibitors and flea market. Restaurants on the field and off provide all you desire to eat.
It's too late for this year, but keep this in mind for 2017.

Used to go to AirVenture since '94. We flew there and camped next to our aircraft. But then I got a full time job and the event happens during the busiest time at work so I havent been since 2004. Still, ten years of fun!

the Wall of Fire was my favorite part.
