FAQ's

What do I need to camp?
A camper or a tent and your admission pass.  If you wish to camp in your car, you will pay the same as a tent camper.

Should we pre-pay/pre-register for camping?
You do not need to pre-pay but it will save you time when you get to Battle Ground.  You can purchase your admission pass in advance but plan to pay for camping when you arrive.  

Can we get/need reservations for camping?
There are no reservations necessary. Everything is on a first come, first served basis. RV Electric is very limited and you MUST pay for your service.   

Where do we park?
Parking is convenient to the camping area.  We now have a designated parking area for tent campers who will not need to move their vehicles during the weekend.  We also have carts available to help you ferry your stuff the short distance to your site. 

What facilities are there available?
Drinking water is available in the tent camping area for no additional charge.  A portable shower is available but a bit cool.  Food is available on the grounds during festival hours.  There are limited 20A electrical hookups for RVs for purchase but no water/sewer hookup.   There are a few permanent charcoal grills installed on the grounds you may use.

Can we bring our pets?  Sorry, we don't allow pets in the festival grounds or campsites.  Here are some options for local pet boarding (we cannot vouch for these places and make no recommendations):

Petsburgh www.petsburg.com Location #1, 2506 Schuyler Ave., Lafayette 765-423-5500. Location #2, 2917 Old US 231, Lafayette 765-474-2454.

The Dog House of Lafayette www.thedoghouseoflafayette.com 185 Century Place, Lafayette 765-588-6008.

Crystal Creek Kennel www.crystalcreekkennel.com 765-589-8299.

Can we have campfires?
Sorry, no campfires are allowed.   The parks department will allow small raised grills high enough that it will do no harm to the grass.  The rest of the year this is a public park so please take care of your spot.
 
Will you run out of primitive tents sites?
We have plenty of room. There is limited space but we've not run out of tent sites in 45 years of operation. 
 
Is RV camping allowed?
A limited number of RV campsites are available. There is limited 20A service and is first come/first served. You MUST pay for the 20A circuit. There are no water hookups or sewer.  We ask that you turn off generators during concerts.
 
Where do I go when I arrive? What do I do?
RV campers will enter at the south entrance (asphalt drive).  Tent campers will enter at the north gate off Prophet Street. You must register and pay before you will be allowed into the grounds. Camping attendants will be available at the gates starting Thursday, June 22nd at noon. Vehicles will not be allowed in the tent camping area.
