When do I need to check out?
All participants are asked to clean their sites and check-out by noon on Sunday July 26th.
Is there a charge for extra vehicles or trailers?
These sites are a little different than the other sites. Other sites are marked and painted, therefore all vehicles must fit in the site and therefore there is no extra charge for extra vehicles. However these sites do not have boundaries which makes them flexible to fit any size group. Due to this flexibility and lack of marked lines on the ground we require each vehicle in this area to purchase a vehicle pass.
How do I access my camping spot?
All camping sites can be access off of Southern Gap Road. Once you arrive on-site swing by one of our two gates to pick up your wristbands and camping passes. You will also receive a full schedule and some general information about the event when you check-in. Once your check-in process is complete our friendly staff will point you in the right direction to find your camping spot.
