*Big Rig campsites include fresh water hookup, 30 amp electric hookup and one complimentary pump out by PATS Services.
ALL campsites are only allowed to have (1) sleeping quarters, i.e a tent or RV and up to two motorized vehicles per site. Each campsite purchase comes with one vehicle pass included and has the option to purchase a second vehicle pass (EVP). If your sleeping quarters is a motorized RV then that is both your sleeping quarters and your vehicle. If you are bringing a car in addition to the RV, you will need to purchase the Extra Vehicle Pass (EVP).
If you wish to park a second vehicle on your campsite, the owner of the campsite will need to call our office (866.802.6418) and add-on an EXTRA VEHICLE pass to their account for $80.
Please note that if you have a motorized RV, that counts as your sleeping unit and your vehicle. If you wish to bring an additional car you will need to purchase an Extra Vehicle Pass.
ALL MOTORIZED VEHICLES ON A CAMPSITE MUST HAVE A CAMPSITE PARKING PASS!
If your camping unit is 35' or larger, it is considered oversized, and therefore you MUST purchase (2) campsites side-by-side (Big Rig is exempt as sites are 25'x45').
If you would like to purchase a Port-o-Potty, please see camping Add-Ons.
Remember each item that you bring MUST FIT ON YOUR 19'x40' campsite (or 25'x45' if in Big Rig).
Please plan ahead and make sure your things fit on your site. To ensure the safety of yourself and others, we ask that you not bring any ATV's, golf carts, mopeds, bikes, pools, trampolines, etc.
Please read the directions in the information packet before arriving at the festival. Also, please see Camping Rules for additional information.
