Camping

RockyGrass is widely known as a “picker’s festival.” And that pickin’ happens in the campgrounds — late-night intimate jams where the pros and the hot-shot Festivarians trade songs and hot licks.

Though the music on the main stage continues to blow our mind every single year, for many Festivarians the campground scene is the RockyGrass experience. With more than half of the RockyGrass Festivarians camping in Lyons during the festival, learn more about the campgrounds we’re again offering in 2019.

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

  • LaVern Johnson (Meadow) Park camping begins on Wednesday @ 11am. Due to new agreements with the Town of Lyons, Planet Bluegrass will begin running this campground several days later than past years. Prior to Wednesday, camping may be purchased from the Town of Lyons. The general public will have free access to this park until 9am on Wednesday morning.
  • Family Camping at Lavern Johnson (Meadow) Park. This campground will include an area designated as “family camping” which observes specified “quiet hours”. (River Bend will no longer have a designated family camping area.)
  • If you plan to arrive prior to the opening gates for the On-Site, River Bend, or LaVern Johnson (Meadow) Park campgrounds, please read the load-in policy for each campground.

Vibe: Saunter back and forth from the Festival to your campsite throughout the day. With easy access to the Planet Bluegrass bathhouse and showers, lots of shady trees, the St. Vrain River never more than a few feet away, and the ability to hear the festival from most campsites, on-site camping has become an extremely popular (and coveted) ticket. And that doesn’t even begin to consider the world-renowned late night jamming that takes place late into the night throughout this campground.
