Unreserved Rough CampingAll Full Festival tickets to August Fest include Unreserved Rough Camping. There are many beautiful areas of the campground for tent camping, car camping, etc. that do not have electrical or other hook-ups. These sites are first-come, first served. No prior selection or reserving spaces allowed. Single-day tickets do not include camping unless you purchase tickets for consecutive days.

Reserved Tent Camping: Reserved Tent Camping spaces include electrical hook-ups. RVs must choose Utility Camping

SOLD OUT - Utility Camping: Utility camping sites are for Campers & RVs. 

  • If you had a reserved site last year and select Utility Camping again, you will be assigned the same site that you had last year. 
  • If you need to change sites, please contact Rudy:
  • If you did not have a site last year, you will be placed on the waiting list. If an appropriate site does not become available, you can change to Reserved Tent Camping or Rough Camping, and the difference will be refunded to you in July.
  • Only one camper will be allowed on each site and all campers/vehicles will be tagged. Untagged campers will be charged.
  • If you need to register for multiple sites, please contact Ross:
  • We will assign sites based on the camper information you provided upon registration. If you decide to bring a larger size rig or different type camper than the one registered, your spot may not be available for you to use and your money will then be refunded. The sites can have very specific size requirements. 
  • Every site is guaranteed 20 amp service. You can request a site with more amps but it is not guaranteed. 
  • Please note we will make every effort to place you in the site where you were last year but many factors can affect that option such as size of your rig and conditions of the site itself. We are unable to take specific site requests. 
  • You will receive your campground assignment  by mail or email and you must bring the assignment with you to check in at the campground.
