All campers must pay the festival fee (family or individual rate) regardless of when they arrive and depart. Additional fees apply for those arriving before July 30.

We do not accommodate camping for one night only; campers must pay festival rate and pre-camping rate, depending on their day of arrival.

Campsites are first-come, first served. Campsites may not be reserved. Camping is rough tent camping with showers and bathrooms available, or RV camping with no hookups. We are usually close to full by Wednesday, the day the festival begins; however, no one has ever been turned away.

Camp Sites: Please be advised If you move your car from your camp site, the Division of Culture and History cannot guarantee the availability of your space upon return.
Suggestion: If you need to leave the camp during the festival you need to permenatly park your car at the bottom of the hill and take the shuttle up and down.
