Camping Prices and Info


Please visit this page for our policies & suggestions on smoking and campfires!

Tent Camping

Tent camping is based on one pass per tent for your whole stay (not per night). Each tent camping pass is good for a 10×10 tent or smaller, anything larger will need 2 passes. Tent campers note: there will be no tent camping without a pass for the next day, ie if you are camping Friday night, you must also have a Saturday wristband.

Tent campers without vehicle camping passes cannot drive a vehicle into the camp site, but there is a shuttle that runs from the parking lot to the tent camping areas.

Tent camping is on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are interested in renting camping gear, click here for an opportunity to do so.

Vehicle Camping

A vehicle camping pass (car, camper, RV, van, etc) is $86 in advance and $94 at the gate and includes space for a)1 vehicle and b)one big tent/canopy (larger than 10×10) or 2 small tents. You will receive 2 tent camping passes with your vehicle pass. Tents larger than 10×10 will require 2 passes.

If you are purchasing a vehicle camping pass, you must also have a 4-day festival pass.

Any vehicle over 25 feet will require two vehicle camping passes as space is getting more limited as the festival grows. Any trailer/vehicle  combo must have two vehicle camping stickers (ie a sticker for each vehicle). You are welcome to tow your camper to the campgrounds and park other vehicle in our main parking lot if you don’t want to buy two stickers, otherwise, you must pay to park in the campgrounds.

Large vehicle owners also note that RVs and buses 35 feet and over will be limited to the front camping area adjacent to the main parking lot.

Vehicle camping sticker needs to be displayed on each vehicle that is camping. If you are camping with a vehicle and a camper, each of them must have a sticker. If you want to park the vehicle that is towing the camper in the parking lot, you can purchase a 4-day parking pass for it.

Early Camping / Set-Up

We allow people to begin camping or set up camp beginning the Saturday before the festival. There is a $10 early set-up fee. Early Vehicle Camping is $10 per day.

If you plan to set up early or camp early, please pay your fee and pick up your camping passes upon entry to the grounds . Do not set up without receiving a camping pass! You may set up as much as you want, but you cannot rope off extra space to be used later.

Please read more about camping at the festival on the Camping/Visiting Chatham Page
