General Camping & RV Info

Your 3-Day GA Pass includes camping for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. If you’d like to camp at the park on Thursday night, you need to purchase a Thursday Pre-Party pass IN ADDITION to your 3-day pass. Thursday night campers definitely score the best camping spots, and there will be tons of great music and fun if you want to start partying early!

A general parking pass will need to be purchased per car upon entrance to the park (VIPs get a special parking area). NO VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED ON THE CAMPGROUNDS, unless you get an RV spot. As long as you pay to park your car in the parking lot and have a parking pass you can come and go as you please. If you lose your parking pass or wristband you will have to pay again (no exceptions). If you buy an RV spot, you must keep your RV in the park until the event is over. You will NOT be allowed to come and go with your RV. If you have an RV spot and you want to leave, you may leave but not return without paying again if there is still space available.
