The festival site is centered in the middle of the park and features 2 stages for entertainment and workshops, a 24/7 shower house and restrooms, and with 55 acres, there is plenty of room to spread out. 

The campground is family and pet friendly; golf carts are available to rent during the festivals, making it easy to get around to the stages and the well-known late-night jams happening at campsites. We make it easy for you to enjoy the festivals, whether you are coming daily or camping onsite.
