Flying yourself to Oshkosh? Consider stopping in to Manitowish Waters, WI, where you can land on the grass or paved runway and camp and shower at the airport. Take a day to enjoy the many fun opportunities around the area, including biking, fishing, and water skiing.

We look forward to seeing you at Oshkosh! Don’t forget to wear your RAF logo wear so we can spot you!
