Winnebago Industries Inc. is renovating its Rally Grounds Activity Complex, according to a press release.

The facility, located adjacent to the company’s Forest City, Iowa, headquarters and main manufacturing complex, is undergoing a series of planned renovations. Improvements include surface leveling of Section A of the original Rally Grounds along with upgraded 50-amp electrical service in that section.

The company noted that when the Rally Grounds were originally developed in the 1970’s, RVs were typically smaller than they are today and did not incorporate many of today’s modern features such as slideouts. These upgrades provide more user-friendly accommodations for today’s RVer. The entire facility is also receiving a Wi-Fi system enhancement to improve visitors’ access to Internet service on site.

Director of Marketing Chad Reece added, “Ongoing improvements make our Rally Grounds Activity Complex, which is already a uniquely premier location for RV-related and other gatherings, even better. We look forward to showcasing these improvements when we host our annual WIT Club Grand National Rally July 21-26 and other events moving forward.”

Winnebago Industries’ Rally Grounds Activity Complex has electrical hookups for over 1,300 RVs and dry camping space to accommodate several hundred more. On-site amenities include sanitary dump stations, rest room/shower house facilities, a 3,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, an air conditioned 60-foot by 200-foot carpeted meeting facility with a hard surface dance floor area. A second air conditioned meeting facility that can accommodate up to 125 people includes a bar/lounge area.

Two covered pavilion areas provide additional outdoor meeting space and a professionally managed food service is conveniently located on the grounds. The Rally Grounds Activity Complex is available for a multitude of events throughout the year. For more information about the use of the facility, please contact Lisa Cronkwright, events coordinator, at (641) 585-6464 or at lcronkwright@winnebaoind.com.
