A few other important details to know: 

  • Open fires are strictly prohibited, and smoking will only be permitted in designated spaces. 
  • Campsites are located in cattle grazing pastures. While suitable for tents and trailers, the ground may be unstable or bumpy in some areas. 
  • All campsites are “dry”, with no hookups or access to running water. Limited potable water will be available, but please bring enough water for you to drink, cook, clean, etc. 
  • Food and beverage vendors will be on site during festival hours. 
  • All campers and Monday pass holders will receive safety glasses on Monday morning in order to safely view the eclipse. 
  • Vehicle parking is not included in a festival pass (camping or day passes). Please also purchase a parking pass for a day or the entire weekend. 
  • Animals are not allowed. Execptions are made for service dogs and dogs under 20lbs, but dogs will not be allowed outside of the campgrounds, and we discourage their presence due to likely hot temperatures and limited shade.
