All camping & hookups are on first come, first serve basis. We do not reserve sites. Staff members of our team are allowed to reserve sites, please consider joining our team if you would like this perk!
Medical Hookups: If you need hookups for a medical reason please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reserve a site for you.
Can I Reserve a site?
No, we do not reserve sites. We sell out of hookups by Thursday evening, we do not sell out of tent sites, but the earlier you arrive the better site you will have.
How many hookup sites do you have?
We only have 200 hookup sites, they are available on a first come first serve basis, unless you need them for medical reasons (CPAP etc). Please contact us at email@example.com if this is the case.
I don't want to camp!
That’s OK! We are 45 minutes away in either direction from Portland Maine, and North Conway New Hampshire, which have plenty of hotels. The Midway Motel, The Cornish Inn, and the Cottages at Oak Hill Farm are also a 10 minute or less drive from the grounds, but they sell out very quickly!
Day tickets are available online, or at the gate, and there is ample parking onsite. Please do NOT bring your dog if you are coming for the day, as dogs are not allowed and it is not safe to keep them in the car for extended periods.
What will the weather be like?
Typically, weather blows off to the coast. Most of the stages however are covered, and there are tons of exciting workshops and performances that you can see under cover! There are also shade tents at the main stage, or you can hang out at the luscious beer tent with our beautiful harvest tables, twinkle lights and 10+ beers, hard ciders and wines available! Or you can bring a jacket! But….the weather is going to be perfect.
Can I park my car at my campsite?
Yes. There are no rules as to how people spread out on the grounds. If you want to create a nice space for your group, get there early. We do regulate how hookup sites are used, since those cost $25/night/site (you cannot take up more than one hookup site).
Are fires and cooking allowed?
Yes. However, all fires must be in a fire ring. You are welcome to bring camp stoves. Please bring your own tables, if you take a picnic table from a public area, we will come take it back! Fire rings are for sale at the local hardware store.
What is your dog policy?
We no longer allow dogs at the festival. Please read our attached decision letter from the board of directors on this issue.
We DO still allow service animals and emotional support animals. These dogs must have current paperwork which will be shown at the gate, and must follow the following rules:
–Dogs must be on leash
–Dogs must not bark excessively
–Dogs may not be in the concert area unless the paperwork says they must be with their companion at all times for safety
There is no charge for service animals.
