Q: I WANT TO CAMP NEXT TO MY FRIENDS, CAN YOU RESERVE A SPOT?
A: Camping sites in Regular & Premier camping are allocated as you arrive, spaces cannot be held or reserved, so if you want to camp in groups, you must show up at the same time.

Q: CAN I BUY 2 CAMPING PASSES WITH ONE CAR AND HAVE A BIGGER SITE?
A: Sure – just make sure you show the campground attendant both passes upon arrival.

Q: IS THERE A LIMIT ON TENT SIZE AT THE GORGE?
A: 4-6 person tent per vehicle/camp site

Q: HOW BIG ARE THE CAMPSITES FOR GENERAL CAMPING?
A: A general/standard camping site is about 15’x25′. Enough room for one vehicle and tent.

Q: CAN I HAVE MORE THAN ONE TENT IN OUR CAMPING SPACE ALONG WITH OUT VEHICLE?

Q: CAN I CAMP IF I DO NOT HAVE A TICKET FOR THE SHOW?
A: No, you will need a ticket for the concert in order to enter the campgrounds.

Q: WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
A: A tent (you’d be surprised!)
– Clothing for all temperatures – the nights can be chilly.
– Sunscreen/sunblock.
– You can bring your own food for the campground, though this year we do now have some great hot food options at the pivot.
– Your happy smiley face ready to have some fun.
– A bit of patience, give our staff a wave and a hello instead of a snarl, they are working very long hours and really hard to make these shows happen, but expect occasional lines, it happens when 25,000 people descend on one place at one time.

Q: IS THERE A STORE IN THE CAMPGROUND?
A: Yes there is. The store has a wide variety of beers, soft drinks & snacks, ice, as well as some of those little necessities you may have forgotten, sunscreen, basic toiletries etc. The General Store is located close to the main entrance.

Q: CAN I BRING MY DOG?
A: No. Do not bring any pet whatsoever, not because we don’t like them – we are all animal lovers here – but it is cruel and unfair to the pet to leave it alone in the campground or parking lot, locked up or in a car or tent where it may suffer from extreme heat. When we see a pet in a car or running around the campground unattended, we will alert the authorities and your vehicle may be entered and the pet taken to a shelter for its own welfare. You may be subject to prosecution for cruelty to animals. Service Animals are permitted however.

Q: CAN PEOPLE COME TO AND FROM THE GORGE?
A: Not encouraged – especially during busy ingress period – but provision can be made – you would need to get a reentry pass from Guest Services on the way out of the campground.

Q: WILL THERE BE A PLACE TO PARK VEHICLES FOR THOSE SHARING CAMPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE?
A: No – if you want to park a vehicle overnight you will need a camping pass for that vehicle – one vehicle = one camping space. The Gorge parking area does not allow overnight parking.

Q: CAN I VISIT OTHER CAMPING AREAS WITH MY CAMPING PASS?
A: Terrance pass holders can visit any camping area.
Gold and Premier can visit each others camping areas and can go to standard camping area.
Standard pass holders can only enter the standard camping area.
