OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - The recent soggy weather is putting an early damper on things for some Country USA campers.

Organizers opened the grounds at 2 p.m. Monday, two hours ahead of schedule, because they expected delays getting campers in the grounds. That early open didn't include festival sites.

Between 500 and 800 festival sites are currently too wet for camping, according to Country USA organizers. 100 electrical and 60 VIP sites have already been moved. Organizers warn that groups of more than 4 sites may be split up because there are no dry locations for large groups.

Officials say that drivers of tour buses, large trucks and heavy camping units are warned that they are likely to get stuck. Organizers are working with local farmers to use their tractors to help pull vehicles in and out of the grounds.
