  • $75 per 20’ x 20’ space on the level grassy field for TENT CAMPING only.*

*This fee covers all 3 nights (Friday, June 28 through Sunday, June 30) regardless of when you arrive. Multiple tents are allowed in the space, but you must stay within the allotted area and everyone in your party must have a weekend pass to attend Big Ponderoo.

Details: 

  • No showers available at this site.

  • All camp gear will need to be hauled from the parking lot to the adjacent grassy area, so plan accordingly.

  • No open flames on the property, including charcoal grills. Gas cookstoves may be used in a way that doesn’t damage the lawn.

  • Dogs are not permitted in this campground except for service animals. Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals.
