      -Car Camping is included with all three day general admission ticket sales (day passes are required to leave the property by 10:00 pm). You are encouraged to bring your own shade/rain structures to ensure your camp has adequate coverage throughout the day. Camping is first come first serve.
      -Dress for possibility of an extreme cold spring weather so bring lots of blankets!!! Security will be checking at the gate to make sure that you brought ample clothing to stay warm. We do not want anyone to freeze to death! Plan for cold days and extremely cold nights (10° - 60° Fahrenheit temperature range). There will be two large heated shade/rain structures and campfires at all of the themed campgrounds and central community areas. Even with these structures and fires, it will still be cold. Dress appropriately. We have no idea what the weather is going to do, it might snow.
      -There are massive cliffs on the North and South ends of the property that are completely off limits. If you are caught wandering around in these areas you will have your wristband cut and be kicked off the property. These areas are off limits for safety reasons. If you fall off these cliffs you will die. Stay in designated areas at all times.

      Theme Camp Info:
      We have decided to include theme camps as part of this event and all future events. Applications are listed below. Theme camps must be 10 people or larger will receive discounted tickets, a reserved camping area, early entry to the festival, and enough firewood for their camp for the weekend. If you establish a theme camp right now, you will be grandfathered in to the theme camp community for all future festivals. This means your theme camp will always have premier placement and a permanent reserved camping areas. In addition theme camps have the ability to install permanent infrastructure that they can use at every future festival that we host. You can literally build up your theme camp for years and build pretty much whatever you want. Cabins, yurts, Geo-domes, earth-ship homes, tee-pees, gardens, temples, tea houses and art exhibits can be placed permanently on my land. There are almost no other festivals will ever offer this. Get your crew together and figure out your theme camp!!!

      Camp Fires & Grills:
      -Fires are permitted in designated fire areas only. There will be fire pits provided for each of the three campground area and firewood will be available for sale. In addition all community areas (stages, vending area, lounge areas) will have campfires that will be maintained by the staff.
      -All cigarettes should be properly extinguished and disposed of in designated fire pits. Cigarettes are the only type of trash that is allowed to be burnt. Anyone caught burning trash will have their wrist bands cut. Any fires that are started outside of designated fire pits will be considered an act of arson and perpetrators will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
      -Propane grills and camp stoves are permitted, however food will be available. We encourage the use of food provided through the festival as we are being conscious to make it both affordable and healthy – and it creates less waste and trash than bringing in your own.

      Water & Trash:
      -LEAVE NO TRACE, PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT, DO NOT LITTER!!! If you bring garbage or packaging we ask that you plan to pack it out when you leave. If you are caught littering on the property you will have your wristband cut, no exceptions. If you find trash on the ground anywhere, pick it up. Our volunteers and staff will thank you for it. We are working toward creating a zero-waste environment. Help by bringing reusable eating utensils, plates, cups, and cloth napkins, and by removing products from packaging and cardboard boxes before coming.
      -Water is provided on site so no need for plastic water bottles – in fact, we discourage the use of plastic water containers as they are not only poisonous but destructive to the Earth.
      -Elevating the Leave No Trace philosophy, our goal is to leave it “better than before” we arrived. We aim to find ways to make improvements to the grounds, and take steps toward stewarding the land, trees, and animals in a way that is respectful to our planet.

      Rules and Regulations:
      - It is a BYOB event although we encourage you to pitch in on kegs with friends to save the amount of bottles you have to haul out at the end. Plus, it will save you a lot of money.
      - Absolutely no: guns, drugs, weapons, fighting or bad attitudes.
      - Stay in designated festival areas at all time, no exceptions. There are massive cliffs that you can fall off of and kill yourself. If we tell you not to go there it for you own safety.
      - Listen to the Karma Patrol, Volunteers, and Security and respect their directions. Please follow all the guidelines.
      - No open fires outside of designated fire pits or burn barrels.
      - Do not litter or burn garbage, and leave the party with what you came with. Pack it in, pack it out and leave no trace.
      - Dogs are fine as long as they are on leashes during the entirety of the party. There is a fenced off area that will be designated as a dog kennel. The dog kennel area is the only area where dogs are permitted off leashes.
      - Alcohol is fine, but we will check ID’s at the gate. No underage drinking allowed.( Wristbands will be given to those above 21)
      - ABSOLUTELY NO N2O! Nitrous tanks are strictly prohibited and will be confiscated. Offenders will be asked to leave. No EXCEPTIONS.
      - Things like: costumes, led toys, group activities, smiling, laughing and drinking are all encouraged
      - NO Drugs OR Weapons

      We have hired friendly, round the clock security, staffed by Guardian Event Services that will be patrolling the festival for your safety, as well as a Karma Patrol to help our guests stay safe in a non-intrusive, non-aggressive way.

      Medical and Healing Services:
      If you need medical assistance or healing, there is free on-site medical licensed EMT's as well as a Safe Space for people to retreat to.

      Licensed Massage Therapists will be on site giving away 10-20 minute massages all weekend for free. 1 Hour massage options are available upon request for a fee determined between you and your therapist.

      Fire Services:
      Every campground will have designated fire monitors to make sure that burns are conducted safely. Listen to fire monitors at all times and respect their suggestions. If they say a fire is too big, listen to them. In addition every campfire will have a 50 gallon drum of water next to it for emergency purposes. If you see a fire getting out of hand let the staff know about it. Do your part to make this festival safe. There will be a Foam Safety cart on site for any emergency fire mishaps.

      We Request You Bring…
      -Lots of warm clothing and blankets!!!
      -Bring 3 trash bags to your campsite to keep your recyclables and compost separate from your trash. Leave no trace – leave our site and the park better than you found it.
      -A reusable water bottle. Stainless steel is the best.
      -Reusable eating utensils. Even the food court will allow use of your own washable plate!
      -Gifts for new and old friends – great for trade & barter
      -Flashlight, headlamp, cool neon, anything else to light yourself and your way
      -No Glow-sticks! These pretty little lights become landfill and/or are difficult to recycle. LED lights can be found everywhere these days. No Excuses – No Exceptions – No Glow-sticks. Tell a friend.
      -Costumes (we know you won’t forget)! decorative lighting, lots of blinkies and other things to decorate and light yourself. Did we mention no glow-sticks?!
      -Art, musical instruments, props, banners, signs, and anything else you can think of that might make the experience more fun for all
      -Camping gear – especially if you want privacy! Ideally waterproof. Tents and tarps need to be free-standing. Consider a few large garbage bags to protect your gear from your leaking tent and possible water flow coming in through the floor. A good idea is to set a tarp down as a ground cloth inside the tent
      -Shade structures, umbrellas, parasols, sheets, canopy, tarps, tent, parachute; something to break the strong mid-day sun and/ or rain and protect from the cold.
      -Re-bar to tie down tents and shade structures. It gets windy out there and tents can get blown away!!!
      -Tennis balls (or recycled plastic bottles) to top and protect dangerous re-bar stakes or other hazards
      -Earplugs (if you’re a light sleeper)
      -Garbage bags – Keep it clean. Keep it green!
      -Any prescription medications, contact lens supplies (disposables work great), and whatever else you need to maintain your health and comfort in a remote area with no services
      -Closed toed shoes or boots
      -First aid kit
      -Yoga mat
      -Portable chairs
