Food trucks and full bars are located only in the concert venue, as well as a select few in Center Camp. They will also be at The General Store for breakfast and late night.

Wristbands will be distributed on-site upon arrival and the scanning of your ticket. Wristbands are not replaceable and must be kept on for the duration of the weekend.
I have my camping zone. Now what?
Once you’ve chosen your camping zone, the hard part is over. All camping, designated by zone, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. NEW this year: all camping zones will be clearly marked out. For all sites except walk-in Flower Moon, and walk-in Harvest Moon, you can car camp, and pitch a tent next to your car.
Can I save camping spots for friends?
If you want to camp together, arrive together. We simply cannot guarantee a space will be available once everyone arrives.
Can I leave my car overnight in the day parking lot?
There is no camping here, please do not leave your car in the overnight lot.
Can I move my car once in the camping lot?
We ask that you avoid this as much as possible, as we don’t like mixing moving cars and campers. If you have an emergency we will assist you in getting out. Contact us at the main entrance box office.
Is there a quiet camping area?
Yes, the Harvest Moon area is designated with quiet hours.
Are there showers and other amenities on-site?
No. All camping is primitive.
Can I have a fire within the campground?
Absolutely NO fires in the campground. Propane stoves are okay.
What if I am arriving with people in a different campground?
The driver’s car will get the campsite parking pass associated with their camping location – they can park, and campers can walk to other sites. You will not be able to drop people at a different campsite.
Can I leave the site after I’ve entered and dropped my things?
Due to the safety of fellow campers, leaving the campsite and returning is prohibited. Once you are parked, whether early on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, you may not leave until Sunday morning. If you have an emergency or need to get out, please contact the staff, and we will assist you.

Bonfire Entertainment allows ADA recognized service animals trained specifically to assist a person with disabilities at all events. Animals whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are not permitted at the festivals. If you have a certified service animal, you will be required to have your service animal with you at all times. Under the ADA*service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices.
The definition of “service animal” is limited to an animal that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability who is in attendance. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. Under the ADA, “comfort,” “therapy” or “emotional support animals” do not meet the definition of a service animal. – U.S. Dept. of Justice
