  • Plenty of parking is available in the fields adjacent to the auction grounds. Fire police will direct you.
  • Bringing a trailer or RV to the sale?  Not sure where to park?  Enter from N. Ronks Rd. and look for signs on the NORTHWEST side of the auction grounds.  Help us fit lots of trailers by parking close together.  We’ve had requests about parking overnight in this area.  You are welcome to do so at your own risk.

The parking area is graciously donated by the Levi Beiler family. They give up one of their harvests to plant grass for us. You will find the area fairly flat and easy to manage strollers, wheelchairs, and wagons.


We may be in the country, but we provide more than a barn for your comfort needs! Clean portable toilets and handwashing stations are located throughout the auction grounds.
