Camping Prices & Policies
PLEASE READ CAMPING INFO BEFORE PURCHASING
Tent camping on-site is based on price per tent (no matter how many nights). Tent camping is $25 in advance and $30 at the gate. Each tent camping pass is good for a 10×10 tent/canopy/tarp or smaller, anything larger will need two passes. Tent campers note: Early tent camping (before Thursday) is an additional $10.
Tent camping is on a first come, first serve basis. Roping to save space is not welcome!
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.
Please read further vehicle camping guidelines below.

Family/Quiet Camping Area
If you have children with you or enjoy quiet at the festival you may want to consider camping in the family/quiet camping area. We have two of those on site and they both contain tent and vehicle camping. Ask the parking crew where this is upon arrival.
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 or RV 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 see the ticket booth for this year’s campfire notice. If the weather has been very dry, we will not allow fires.
If You Want to Camp, But Don't Have Gear
Project Shelter Can Help!
We welcome our friends from Project Shelter! If you would like to camp at the festival, but don’t have any gear, you can rent gear from them or have them set up the site for you!
Check out the options and purchase one of these Basecamp setups, here!
Any gear that you don’t want to drag home can be dropped off with Project Shelter for donation. Project Shelter is partnered with a Liberian non-profit called Youth Crime Watch of Liberia. They host a variety of workshops to educate locals. YCWL is in need of gear (tents, chairs, tarps, blankets, etc.) to accommodate families traveling to these workshops.
