Off Road Vehicles
So you brought your toys, goodie for you, were all impressed. Now park it in your campsite and leave it there for the duration of the Festival. ATVs, dune buggies, golf carts, runaway bumper cars, wheelbarrows, and show ponies have no place on the Festival grounds and are thus not allowed. This policy is strictly enforced.
RV Camp Spaces
RV camp spaces are designed to accommodate six adults. One RV, and, if you like, one small tent are permitted on your RV site. All RVs and trailers must be parked front to back in the campsite; no horseshoeing, boxing, etc. The Festival grounds are located on a working ranch, there are no hookups for RV camping.
Tent Camp Spaces
Tent camp spaces are designed to accommodate six adults. Two tents are permitted on your tent site.
Camp hosts are available in each camping area to assist campers in finding their sites and to answer Festival-related questions. Camp hosts sites are marked with a “Camp Host” placard next to their site marker. Our Camp Hosts are there for your safety, assistance, and to ensure your Festival experience is a pleasant one.
Campfires & Cooking
Propane grills and above ground propane fire pits may be used to prepare your outside food and beverages at your campsite. Campfires, wood burning, and charcoal grills are not permitted; PROPANE ONLY, this is strictly enforced. If it makes a spark, the answer is NO.
Safety & Courtesy
No loud noise in camping area after midnight, this includes generators. No dumping of grey or waste water on Festival property.
Linn County, where the Festival is located, has an ordinance that must be observed by all campers. This means voices must be quiet by midnight, generators shut off, singalongs reduced to the slightest of murmurs, and all whooping and hollering canned for the night. This code is strictly enforced by both on-site security as well as Linn County Deputies. At 9am its game on, until then, nighty night little camper.
Rules Schmools! What if I dont want to follow them?
Its very simple: if you dont follow the rules, youll be asked to leave. If you dont leave, youre trespassing. If youre trespassing, one of Linn Countys friendly deputies will escort you out.
All camping areas include portable toilet facilities, hand washing units, RV pumping and complimentary trash pickup.
RV and tent campers arriving on the property Thursday should bring in enough water to last them until late afternoon on Friday. RVs in need of a tank fill must contact the potable water service, located on-site, or fill their tank prior to entering the Festival grounds.
Have ice delivered directly to your campsite! Central Linn High School students can be flagged down while driving through the camping areas between the hours of 10am and 6pm. You may also pick up your own ice from the ice truck between 8am and 8pm. All proceeds from ice sales support the Central Linn Booster Club.
Complimentary trash pickup is available Friday through Sunday, between 10am and 5pm. Simply place your bagged trash at the corner of your campsite and it will be picked up by someone from the Central Linn Booster Club; no appointment is necessary. If you are leaving the grounds after 5pm on Sunday, take it with you; do not leave it on site.
Camper’s shower facilities are located on the Festival grounds. You may pre-purchase a three-pack of shower passes for $15 or buy individual passes from the attendant at the Festival for $5 each. Pre-purchased passes are not mailed out, they will be available for pick up from the attendant. Showers are open from 7am to 7pm, your bathtime cannot be pre-scheduled.
Pets are allowed on a leash in your campsite. Campers are expected to clean up after their pets. Animals are absolutely, under no circumstances, to be left inside vehicles (RVs, trailers, and campers are fine if theyre cool; use your judgement). It is far too hot. Nothing will corral a posse of angry, animal-loving country music fans faster than a dying dog in a hot car. Plus, well kick you out faster than you can spit.
