Questions About Camping and Parking

Q - What is the camping situation, anyway?

A - Primitive camping is included, even with a single-day pass. Our main campground is the shaded and manicured lawn surrounding the performance space. There are more remote campsites for those who want more privacy, and there are also a few Premium Electric Campsites available, see the ticketing site for details.

A - You will not find any porta-potties at our events. There are plenty of real, clean, modern restrooms, and there are even hot showers.

A - Not in the main campground, but you can charge your devices in the Dance Hall. The Premium Electric Campsites and the Reserved RV Spots have access to one 20amp circuit. See the ticketing site for options.

Q - Can I park my car at my campsite?

A - Parking spaces ring the main campground, so it is possible to set up your campsite directly in front of your car. The Premium Electric Campsites do have camp-side parking for up to two cars.

Q - Can I use a charcoal grill or build a campfire?

A - Individual campfires are allowed but must be entirely contained and off the ground. We require that you use a raised fire pit. We do allow propane camp stoves and charcoal grills, but please be responsible. Never leave a fire unattended, we will extinguish any unattended campfires. Put the fire out with water rather than letting it burn out over time.  Do not dump coals or ashes on the ground. Once the fire is completely out and coals are cool to the touch, dispose of properly in the trash.
