Land Rush Preregistration

Preregistration Open July 1 - 31, 2019!

You may preregister for Land Rush by prepaying for 1 camping spot or 2 (maximum), as well as electricity for those spots, if desired.  You may preregister online, by phone or in person at WVA office, beginning 9am on July 1.  At time of preregistration a timestamp will be used to place you in the queue and then assign you to a line, A-F.  We will take preregistrations by mail-in forms, but your place in the queue will depend on when we process your order.  After July 31 you will receive a form (by email if desired, by regular mail for others), notifying you of which row you need to line up in on or after August 29th.
