Camping Information

What is primitive, next-to-car camping?

Wakarusa is a music and camping festival. Think of the campgrounds as a parking lot with large stalls: when you arrive to the mountain, parking attendants will direct you to the next available stall. You park your vehicle and set up camp directly behind your vehicle. “Primitive” means there are no water/electric hookups in the campsites.

How big are the campsites?

Each camping pass allows you ~450 square feet of campground. You must fit the size of your vehicle in this area. The rest of the area can be filled with tents, chairs, coolers, etc behind your vehicle.

What is “first come, first served”?

Each vehicle is parked in the order they arrive, hence “first come, first served.” You cannot pick out your own campsite; a parking attendant will direct you to the next available campsite. You park your vehicle and set up camp directly behind your vehicle; you cannot “move” your campsite to a different location.

What if we have a large group and only 1 vehicle?

Each camping pass allows you ~450 square feet of campground, regardless of the number of people in your group. You must fit the size of your vehicle in this ~450 square feet. The rest of the area can be filled with tents, chairs, coolers, etc. behind your vehicle. If you would like more room at your campground, simply purchase 2 (or more) camping passes.

What if we have a large group and more than 1 vehicle?

If you want to camp together with multiple vehicles: you must arrive together in a caravan in order to camp the vehicles next to each other. You cannot save spots for vehicle(s) that are arriving later.

If you want to park the extra vehicle(s) somewhere else: you may park extra vehicles in the Day Parking lot. Day Parking is located at the Riverside Campground, 3 miles south of the main venue. A free, round-the-clock shuttle will transport Day Parkers to and from the main venue, and you can purchase Day Parking at the Wakarusa Box Office for a small fee.

Can I buy more than one camping pass?

Absolutely! Each camping pass allows you ~450 square feet of campground, so if you purchase 2 camping passes you get twice the area. You must fit the size of your vehicle in this area.

Can we park extra vehicles somewhere?

Yes. A Day Parking lot is available at the Riverside Campground, 3 miles south of the main venue. A free, round-the-clock shuttle will transport Day Parkers to and from the main venue, and you can purchase Day Parking at the Wakarusa Box Office for a small fee.

Can we have more than 5 people in a vehicle?

Yes. The “5 people per vehicle” is a general guideline to help encourage you to carpool. Just keep in mind that each camping pass allows you ~450 square feet of campground, regardless of the number of people in your group. You must fit the size of your vehicle in this ~450 square feet.  Hint: if you purchase 2 camping passes you get twice the camping area.

What do you mean by ~450 square feet?

All campground sizes are approximate, and subject to change without notice. Some campgrounds will be larger, some will be smaller.
