Parking will be a bit tricky with so many congregating in a small town, keeping in mind that Sunday will see the most attendees and traffic. Here are some tips to make your parking as fast and pain-free as possible.
From the North: Exit 181 (Plum Creek Parkway) accesses the largest number of parking spots around the Fair Grounds. On Sunday, parking attendants and law enforcement will be waiting for you at the bottom of this exit to direct you to the closest available parking. Exit #182 (Wilcox St.) is also a great option to find parking downtown. There is a wide variety of hastle-free parking options scattered throughout the town to spread out the steady stream of cars. Please be considerate of the local merchants that are open and only park in designated areas.
From the South: Your best option when coming form the south is to exit northbound I25 on exit #174 (Tomah Road) and continue north on the I25 Frontage road on the east side of the Highway. Just before entering Castle Rock, you will see a large parking area just north of Medved Ford (Lot E).
Downtown Castle Rock: Exit #182 is your best option to find parking downtown. Please note that vehicles parked in the posted NO PARKING areas may be towed.
