Click on the menu links at the top of this page or click on each item listed below for more specific information.
RV Parking Facilities: Purina Event Center offers 74 level full hook-up RV sites. Hook-up includes water, sewer and 50AMP electric. Please bring adaptors if your rig does not require 50AMP.
Reservations: Reservations may be made using the online order form or the Spotter Insert order form.
The sites are numbered and designed for different sized rigs. You will receive notice of your assigned spot prior to arrival. Please park only in your assigned spot to ensure that everyone has ample space and easy access to their hook-ups.
The Full Hook-Up site is available to DCA from 10AM Saturday 5/20 - 9AM Saturday 5/27.
If you are renting an RV and plan to arrive on 5/19, please make arrangements for a hotel for that night.
If you own your own RV and are planning to arrive on 5/19, you may park in your assigned spot IF it happens to be open. If it is not open, do NOT park in some other open spot not assigned to you as it may be reserved for one of the rentals being brought in Saturday morning. There is an overflow lot with power hook-up on the grounds where you may park on 5/19 and move into your assigned full hook up space on 5/20. If you end up needing to park in the overflow lot on 5/19, you will be refunded $35 of your space reservation fee.
Rates: Rates are $35 per night.
Policies: All campers are expected to keep their campsites clean and orderly and leave them in as good of shape as they found them. Absolutely no dumping of gray or black water tanks under penalty of state and local laws and an AKC bench show action.
RV Rentals: We have negotiated a 10% discount off normal weekly rates with two dealers in the St. Louis Area.
By Air: Lambert St. Louis International Airport (STL)
As of this writing: Alaska, American, Continental, Delta, and United Airlines transport pets in cargo.
There are direct flights to St. Louis on airlines that fly pets from Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York-La Guardia, Newark, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington National, and Washington Dulles airports. Nearby alternative cities that may offer other direct flight options include Chicago, Memphis and Indianapolis, each 4-5 hour drives from St. Louis.
Ground Transportation: Given that the host hotel is a 20 minute drive from Purina Farms, it is strongly recommended that participants arriving by airline secure a rental car. All major rental car companies operate in St. Louis.
