CAMPING

We are thrilled to announce that festival camping is back! Camping will be available at the nearby Franklin County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds offer over 40 acres of flat, open camping area and include RV electric hook-ups, multiple bathrooms with showers, and a weather emergency shelter. Light meals, baked goods, and snacks are available throughout the day in camp at reasonable prices. 

There'll be great music at the campground, including late-night sets from festival artists, and a house band of string players, picking and sitting in on jams.

Camping passes include access to the campgrounds, and parking at the fairgrounds, with free shuttle buses to and from Greenfield Community College where the festival is held. (The Franklin County Fairgrounds are located 2 miles away from the festival grounds ). There will be separate campground areas for family camping and RVs. Each human camper must have a camping wristband to enter the camping area.

What is going to happen when I check in for camping?

When you check in, a staff member will scan your camping pass and give you a camping wristband, which allows access to both the campgrounds and the festival. RV passes will be handed out at this time and will need to be placed on your vehicle's dashboard before entering the campgrounds. RV passes should be visible at all times.

Once you have received your wristband, you are free to move between the camp and festival grounds. DO NOT REMOVE your wristband for any reason during the festival. Your wristband is now your pass; without it, you will not have access to either the campgrounds or the festival.

 
What is the difference between camping, and RV camping?

Camping passes provide unlimited pedestrian access to the campground, bathing and bathroom facilities, and free vehicle parking nearby. RV passes provide an RV or vehicle access into the campground, and one electrical hook-up.

 

Only one RV pass is required per vehicle. If you are purchasing an RV pass for your vehicle, each person in your vehicle must purchase a festival pass with camping. The RV pass DOES NOT grant you access to camping or to the festival. 

 

You do not need a pass for your tent.

 

If you need to have a festival pass to access the campground, why do you sell separate camping passes? 

The separate camping passes are for those who decided to camp after they already purchased their festival passes -- they are add-ons. 

 

What is considered an RV?

An RV pass is required for any vehicle (car, van, towed trailer, camper, bus, etc.) coming onto the campgrounds intended for sleeping. You need to purchase an RV pass IN ADDITION to your camping pass. Admission to Green River Festival is not included with an RV pass.

 

Is there a size limitation when it comes to my RV or the number of tents we can have? 

No, there is no size limitation. 

 

What is the electricity availability for RV hookups? 

Voltage is 240 V. There is a mix of 30, 40, and 50 amps hookups scattered around the fairgrounds with five boxes of new high-power boxes. Translation: there is plenty of electricity for all!   

 

Do RVs need to arrive by a certain time?

Yes, RVs MUST BE IN BEFORE 8:30pm. NO RVs (cars parked in RV section) WILL BE ALLOWED IN AFTER DARK. PLEASE PLAN

ACCORDINGLY.

Can I drive my RV back and forth from the campgrounds to the festival throughout the weekend?

No, RVs (and cars inside the campground) must stay in the camp for the duration—when your RV leaves, it may not re-enter.

 

Are there assigned campsites? 

There are no assigned campsites.

 

What are the shower facilities?

There are shower and bathroom facilities available on the campgrounds with hot water. Please use the room you feel most comfortable in.

 

What time do bathrooms/showers close? 

Bathrooms and showers are open 24 hours for campers' convenience.

 

Is there access to water in the campgrounds? 

Yes, there are water spigots throughout the campgrounds. We will also have filtered water by Klean Kanteen.

 

If I have a camping pass, do I need to purchase a festival parking pass? 

No, you can park at the campgrounds. There will be a festival shuttle transporting campers to the festival grounds throughout the day. If you want to drive to the festival yourself you will need a parking pass.

 

But what if I want to drive my car from the campground to the festival during the day and not take the shuttle?

You may drive your vehicle between the campground parking area and the festival unless your vehicle has an RV pass. Once RVs are parked inside the campground there is no re-entry.

 

You'll need to purchase a festival parking pass if you choose to park at the festival. 

 

Can I bring my bike and use that as transportation to the festival? Will it be safe?

Absolutely! We would LOVE if you did that. We will have the best routes mapped out for you. We have a bike valet set up just outside festival gates to ensure your bike's safety.    

 

Can you pitch your tent next to your car inside the campground?

Yes, but that would make your an RV and only cars with RV passes are allowed inside the campgrounds.

 

Are animals allowed on the campgrounds? 

Only official service animals are permitted — no emotional support animals.

 

When do the campgrounds open on Thursday and when do they close?

The campgrounds will open at noon on Thursday and close at 10am on Monday. 

 

If I already have a festival pass without camping, can I still purchase a camping pass?

Yes! All you have to do is purchase a separate camping pass on our passes page.

 

Can I purchase a camping pass when I arrive at the festival?

Yes! You can purchase a camping pass at the campground directly or at the festival box office. ​
