If you want to camp, you have two options: 
1. Car camping
2. Field/woods camping

Car camping:

Car camping is just what it sounds like: camping next to your car. One obvious advantage to car camping is that you don’t have to haul your gear very far, and you have easy access to any supplies that you’d like to keep in your car. 

There will be a designated zone for car camping in a flat, sunny field near the gate of the campgrounds. This region will become relatively dark at night. Feel free to bring shade/shelters and lanterns to be comfortable at your campsite throughout the day. The nearest public bathrooms are approximately 600 feet from the car camping zone. 

Field/woods camping:

The bridge over the lakeIf you are not bound to your car, there are 200 acres of space on which you can camp. If you see a grassy area, you can pitch a tent on it. For field/woods camping, you will park your car in a designated zone and then carry your gear to whatever location you choose on the campgrounds. You could choose to camp hundreds of feet from your car, so pack your bags accordingly. Feel free to explore the campgrounds before deciding on a spot; there are many “hidden” zones throughout the woods and meadows that would make excellent, private campsites! 

Information for all campers:

The following information applies to both car campers and fields/woods camping.

  • All campers pay the same price for camping admission. See the tickets page for more information on prices. 
  • Public bathrooms are available day and night. There will not be public showers available.
  • Small grills are permitted as long as they are used with caution. Do not place a grill anywhere near cabins, dry grass, or other flammable materials. Never leave a flame unattended at your campsite. 
  • All trash must be contained in trash bags at the campsite. Large trash cans and recycling bins will be located throughout the campgrounds. PLEASE RESPECT THE SITE BY LEAVING IT AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU FOUND IT.
 
For more information about what is permitted at the campgrounds, see the FAQ section.

CabinsCabins contain dorm-style sleeping arrangements with new twin mattresses in each room.  Some cabins have as few as 7 beds while others have as many as 13.  If you want bigger beds, feel free to push your twin beds together! Each cabin has sinks, toilets, and showers that are shared with cabinmates. Some cabins rooms are adjoined with/open to other cabin rooms, and you might share your bathroom with other cabin rooms. (For example, in Cabins 5 and 6, there are 10 beds in each cabin, and the two cabins share a bathroom.) Unless you have specifically requested a single-gendered group cabin (see below), all bathrooms will be coed facilities.

Also note that cabin doors will not have locks, and no cabin is "completely private." (Many cabins are adjoined with a second cabin without a door separating them.)  While we hope that all attendees will be peaceful, respectful, and honest, we advise you to be cautious of leaving any valuable items sitting around in your cabin. (Or better yet, don’t bring anything valuable with you!) Note for musicians and artists who are performing: we will have a locked zone for all of your valuable gear.

You are required to bring all linens, pillows, or sleeping bags that you will use on your bed, and you should bring any towels or toiletries that you will need for the bathroom. The cabins will have fans and windows, but no central a/c. Feel free to bring extra fans if you think you might want one. All cabins have plenty of electrical outlets and lights. Also, if you wish to grill food, you must set up your grill at least 50 feet away from the cabins.

PLEASE BE SURE TO KEEP ALL CABINS AND BATHROOMS AS CLEAN AS YOU FOUND THEM, AND MOST OF ALL, BE RESPECTFUL OF YOUR CABINMATES.

(Remember that all attendees must buy a weekend admission pass in addition to any cabin purchases!)
