Festival Camping Information and Rules

Festival Camping Information and Rules

Fort Buenaventura is the ideal location for festival camping. With a variety of camping spots, there’s plenty of room to spread out. Whether you’re looking to sit in on an impromptu jam circle, or just relax and rejuvenate under the stars, the campground is the place to be after the music on the main stage is over.

The 3 Day Pass with Tent Camping is available for purchase. Each camper must purchase a 3 Day Pass with Tent Camping ticket in order to camp at the festival. Camping spots are on a first-come first-served basis.

Limited premium camping sites are available for an additional charge through Weber County Parks & Recreation Office, but they sell out quickly so be sure to purchase your camping early. Call the Weber County Parks and Recreation Office at (801) 399-8491.

Vehicles of any kind are not allowed in the tent camping area at all due to the state of the lush grass, which makes it ideal for tents. Tent campers can park their vehicles in the designated tent camping parking area nearby.

Camping in vehicles (RVs, trailers, pop-ups, vans, trucks, anything with wheels) will be allowed in the non-grass areas of the campground. A Vehicle Camping Pass must be purchased for $10 to camp in your vehicle. With out it, you will only be allowed a tent.

Camping windshield passes must be obtained from the camp host and displayed in each vehicle parked within the campground.

The campground will open at noon on Thursday, June 1st and close at noon on Monday, June 5th. Arrivals after 5:00 pm on Friday, June 2 will have limited access to certain areas of the park. Space assignments will be determined by what areas can be reached.

South Campground Parking: the vehicle parking is limited, once the tent camping vehicle parking is full all others will be directed to the upper north parking lot. NOTE: You will want to consider parking in the upper north lot if you have plans to leave anytime during the weekend, as no traffic will be allowed through the festival grounds until Sunday morning and then again Sunday evening.

The entrance to the campground is on A Avenue.

You are NOT allowed to hold spots for other campers.

Port-a-potties and drinking water stations are placed throughout the campground. Ice will also be available for purchase.

Please be considerate! Camping area quiet time is 10pm - 6am. Be respectful of your neighbors and obey the following during quiet time:

  • No generators. Generators can be run during the day, but please keep them to a minimum so as not to disturb other campers.

  • No amplified sound

  • No drum circles

  • No excessive noise

Keep it GREEN! All trash must be placed in the containers/large receptacles provided. Recycling containers are also found around the park, we encourage you to use them!

Do not carve, chop, cut or damage any live tree or plant.

Keep it SAFE! Fires are allowed in designated fire pits, stoves and grills as well as personal above ground fire pits only. Leaving a fire unattended for any length of time is prohibited. During certain periods of "high fire danger", on the authority of the Fire Marshall, fires may not be allowed at all. The camp hosts will be able to provide this information.
