Campground Rules

This is a very unique campground, and as a result, there are a few unique rules to keep in mind before you decide if it is the right place to stay:

#1 – There is no vehicle access from Apple Valley Road. PLEASE respect our neighbors and don’t drive down Apple Valley Road or try to drop off equipment in the campground from there.

#2 – There are no vehicles allowed in the campground at any time – not even for pickup or drop off. Don’t fret, though, your car will be parked just across the river at the Farm parking lot, with easy access to carry your stuff to your site.

#3 - There are sensitive wetlands on this property! We will have them fenced off, and please respect the boundary to help us protect this resource.

#4 – Porta Potties will be the only restrooms available. The closest showers will be in the Bathhouse on the Main Festival Grounds.

General rules:

  • All persons (ages 13+) must have a wristband for admission into the festival and the campground.
  • No pets are allowed
  • No open fires
  • No Drones
  • Use of provided compost, recycle, and landfill receptacles is required
