LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- For the first time in a decade, Madison Regatta fans can camp along the Ohio River for the hydroplane races.

Regatta organizers say campsites will be available on both sides of the Madison-Milton Bridge.

Organizers expect the 60 riverside spots --- which cost $100 each -- to go quickly.

This season's race course has been extended to two and a half miles and will run beneath the bridge.

From the camping area, fans will see the boats begin their run down the front stretch.

The Madison Regatta runs from July 3-5.
