Vibe: Just five minutes down river from Planet Bluegrass, LaVern Johnson Park is a beautiful park under towering rock cliffs, owned and maintained by the Town of Lyons. Camping is available under shady trees next to the river, as well as open camping in the field. This campground also features several playground areas, showers (additional fee), and river access along the perimeter of the park.

Parking: Parking is available at the Planet Bluegrass Farm for $10 cash/weekend. Shuttles run from the Farm parking to the campground and the walk is roughly 0.7 miles.

Festival Access: Walk a half mile (past a local brewery, market, and coffee shop!) to the festival grounds, or grab the shuttle at the stop across the street from the entrance.
