Onsite Camping FAQ

header-campingfaq

Are there any car-camping options?

Yes. We have RV camping (Delta Lot) and vehicle park-and-camp (Bravo Lot) options. Both are located at nearby offsite locations. For specific details, visit our Delta & Bravo FAQs page.

Do I need a Tent Tag to camp offsite?

No. Only patrons camping onsite are required to purchase an onsite Tent Tag.

Patrons camping offsite at either  Delta Lot (RV’s only) or  Bravo Lot (vehicle park-and-camp), will be issued a parking pass which must be clearly displayed on your vehicle. This parking pass will allot for a 10×10 camping space for your tent.

What is the policy on hammocks and onsite Tent Tags?

In recognition of the minimalism of hammocks, hammocks may share space with a tagged tent within the 15′ x 15′ space allotment at no additional charge. However, if a 15′ x 15′ camping site is being shared by only hammocks, one hammock must purchase and prominently display an onsite Tent Tag.

What’s the low down for onsite camping?

*NEW IN 2014* Onsite camping is allowed only with a pre-purchased onsite Tent Tag. Camping at FloydFest is primitive.  This means NO electricity, running water, perfectly level campsites, etc.  Portable toilets, hand-washing stations and potable water are convenient to camping areas. Also, 15 warm-water shower stalls are located on the hill en-route to the Global Village. No open fires are permitted.  Propane and Camp stoves are allowed. Please note ALL ONSITE Tent Tags receive a 15’ x 15’ footprint. 

What is an onsite Tent Tag?

All patrons camping onsite require an onsite Tent Tag for their tent.  Onsite Tent Tags are an optional add-on item which must be purchased in addition to a regular admission ticket. They are currently available only to 5-day, 4-day, and 3-day ticket purchasers, who are invited to arrive on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, and to stay through Monday morning. Upon arrival, onsite Tent Tag tickets will be exchanged for a weather-proof credential and zip-tie which must be affixed to the main opening of your tent or tent-like structure. Again, every single tent requires the purchase of a separate onsite Tent Tag. There may not be multiple tents within the allotted 15’ x 15’ space. The only exception to this is pop-up tents which are erected directly over tents with existing onsite Tent Tags. 

Who can purchase an onsite Tent Tag?

The onsite Tent Tag ticket option is currently only available to 5-day, 4-day, and HighRoller admission ticket purchasers.  Only (1) onsite Tent Tag per ticket purchased.

What should I bring?

ALL Tent Tag purchasers (except for HighRollers, VDUBs, and Yurt Dwellers) will be shuttled to the festival site. This does mean humping your gear from your car to the shuttle, and then again to your camping site. Please pack accordingly! Still need a little help?… here’s a list.  

Can I save a space for a friend coming a day later?

NO.  We have carefully measured and gridded our available onsite real estate, and sites are assigned on a first-come first-serve basis.  If you are looking to camp together with friends as a group you will need to arrive together at the same time.

Where do I go if I forgot some gear?

No worries! The FF Camp Store will be fully-stocked with all camping essentials and the not-so-essentials!

What needs to happen to my campsite before I depart on Sunday?

If you pack it in, we kindly ask that you pack it out! The Green Team has reached high levels of recycling in the festival over the past few years.  2014 is the year to take the campground and offsite area recycling to the next level! Plan ahead now–here’s some tips:

  1. Join the Revolution—and Please Recycle!  We hope all FloydFestivarians will recycle and compost—it’s easy! You can get supplies and information at the Green Team tent, located by the Klean Kanteen water station, mid-field.  Bring recycling in a clear bag to any recycling station.
  2. Keep your food waste separate and bring to the specially marked bins or the compost pile in the Global Village.

What if I am just not a camper?

If your preference is to camp onsite please check our our Glamping Options.  For those that desire a more tranquil offsite experience, our lively little town is loaded with lovely B and B’s, and hotels and motels as you extend into the wider world. Check our Lodging Page.
