Camping Guidelines


Camping at The Festival of Gnarnia is PRIMITIVE, be prepared to use your survival skills. There is no electricity or running water and random creatures who have escaped the wardrobe may be lurking. Groups who do not arrive together will not be guaranteed camping together, so try to arrange arrival with your peoples. Please keep all campsites as compact as possible to ensure that there is room for your fellow campers. Please be a kind and respectful neighbor. Be prepared to pack out what you pack in. The land is absolutely gorgeous, and we intent to keep it that. Lets work together to ensure that we are stewards of the land and that we help each and everyone have enough room and a nice place to stay.

The campground will open to the public at 10:00 AM on Thursday 8/9 and everyone must be out by 12:00 PM Sunday 8/12.

We will unfortunately not be camping with our cars. Due to the terrain, cars will be parked in designated lots some of which are within walking distance. Shuttle services will be provided during all operating hours of the festival. Shuttles will be running from the festival grounds to the campsite and parking.

Campsites are located in a mostly grassy field with woods along the perimeter, please arrive early to choose a site that best serves you.
