Camping at The Old Settler’s Homestead

Our forever home features three campgrounds — Armadillo, Banjo, and Collings. Together these campgrounds offer more than 29 acres of beautifully manicured, tree-covered campsite options. Whatever your camping preference — tents to RVs, teepees to yurts, buses to boats — you’ll find plenty of space to set up camp.

New this year, you can purchase a General Admission festival pass with camping and parking included. Festival and camping passes are not required for anyone 12 or under as long as they are accompanied by an adult who has the required festival passes.

Campground Experience

If you ask anyone, they will say that the camping experience is part of the magic that defines the Old Settler’s vibe — a vibrant, loving, inclusive, musical experience. It’s a place to catch up with longtime friends and make new ones. If you have an instrument, bring it and join in the many late night jams around the campfire.

Campground Headquarters

Located across the road from Camp Banjo and on the southern side of the Festival Arena, Campground Headquarters is where you go for answers to your questions, purchase shower tickets and ice, and schedule RV water fill-ups and waste dump services. When the arena is closed, Lost and Found is located at Campground Headquarters.

Campground Headquarters are open from 9 AM to 9 PM, Monday (4/18/22) to Saturday (4/23/22), and from 9 AM to 5 PM on Sunday (4/24/22).

Choosing Your Campsite

With three campgrounds to choose from — Armadillo, Banjo, and Collings — you are certain to find the perfect place to set up your festival home. There are no defined campsites and therefore, we cannot reserve a specific campsite location. Campsites are first come, first-served and filled in organically.

When checking in at the Campground Box Office on your arrival, let the volunteer know which campground you’d like to camp in, and if you would like, another of our amazing volunteers will help you find a campsite.
