The Event

Rough River State Park is the site of the Annual Sport Aviation Weekend. We will have the usual airplane judging of all classes, judging of pilot’s landing abilities, and just plain fun getting together with old friends and making new ones. Wing camping is allowed, and accommodations include several local motels, as well as the modern lodge located at the park. Campsites are rented on a first come basis, no reservations. State Park Lodge reservations are 1-800-325-1713 (be sure to mention Sport Aviation Weekend).

The Activities

It has been confirmed that, due to major increases in the fees the Park charges, the traditional Sat. evening banquet will be replaced with a buffet dinner in a reserved area of the Lodge restaurant, with each person selecting and purchasing his/her food.  The time period of this will be determined.  After the dinner time an awards ceremony, including a speaker and prize presentations, will be held in the meeting room just down the hall from the Lodge registration desk.  A cash bar will be set up in the room during this time.
