Camping

The lazy days of the late Colorado summer lend themselves beautifully to camping.

Enjoy a late night of song circles with new friends, then sleep in only to be awakened by a song or kids playing in the river. The relaxed, friendly energy of the Folks Festival carries over into the campgrounds where neighbors become lifelong friends.

See below for camping rules and regulations (such as camping is sold PER PERSON–NOT per site). Once you have your camping passes, be sure to start thinking about our green campsite challenge. Or if sleeping under the stars isn’t your thing, check out the various lodging options.


CAMPING CHANGES FOR 2019

  • One day lineup for on-site campground. Due to ongoing Bohn Park construction and restrictions on the new PB Farm property, the vehicle lineup lottery will be held on Thursday, August 15 (the same day the on-site campground opens). On-site campers may NOT begin lining-up prior to 9am on Thursday, August 15.
  • LaVern Johnson (Meadow) Park opens on Thursday. Due to our lease agreements with the Town of Lyons, Planet Bluegrass management of this campground for Folks Fest will not begin until Thursday, August 15 at 11am. Campers who plan to arrive before Thursday may purchase daily camping from the Town of Lyons. View the LaVern Johnson (Meadow) Park lineup policy.
