Can I bring a grill or build a fire?
Open fires will not be allowed (we anticipate a burn ban will be in effect anyway). Propane camp stoves are allowed and encouraged. Please do not bring charcoal or wood burning grills.
Where can I get water? What about ice? It can be purchased from a gas station a few minutes from the venue on your way in. Please note: $10 RE ENTRY FEE
What is the campsite like?
All campsite are walk-in and may not be close to your vehicle. Some sites are located in grass clearings, and others are tucked away in the forest. Sites are first-come-first-serve so get in early to claim your perfect spot. Some camping spots will be located next to our stages and the event will have a very open layout. Bring earplugs in anticipation of late-night music and/or noisy neighbors.
Can I bring a hammock?
Hell yeah! Please do not attach hammocks to trees less than 6 in diameter. Be aware that some hammocks in public areas may belong to attendees so please be respectful.
Can I camp next to my friends?
There are a limited number of campsites large enough for multiple tents, arrive early to claim one as all sites are first-come-first-serve. Please be courteous to other guests who may want to camp in the same area and share the space.
Will there be electricity in the camping area?
The entire venue is off of the electric grid and there will not be power available for personal use. Pack a few battery blocks to keep your devices juiced up.

Is there parking on premises?
There will be limited parking inside the venue and some cars may park at a satellite location. Please plan to carpool to reduce our impact. More information to come soon.
