We will ask that everyone in the vehicle exit the vehicle while we look around. At this time we will require that everyone place their wristband on their right wrist if they have not done so already as we scan your Eventbrite ticket. If anyone does not have a ticket, they will need to purchase one at that time if the show has not sold out to get their wristband.

At that time we will conduct a search of your persons.

We will then direct your vehicle to the proper location for your campsite depending upon whether you choose GA Car Camping, GA Shade Camping, VIP Upgraded Campsites, or RV Camping.

The search process for RVs remains the same as cars. Back to Top

32. When Leaving LEAVE NO TRACE.

Please respect the land and festival grounds!

Everything you bring with you when you arrive, take out with you when you leave. Bring extra trash bags, don’t litter, and clean up after yourself. It makes it more enjoyable for you, your neighbors, and it’s good for the environment. It’s the right thing to do. When leaving please have all trash in trash bags at the designated trashcan areas. Our staff will come around to pick up trash bags and take them to the dumpsters or recycling bins. DO NOT leave large items such as tents, shade shelters, chairs, etc.

Please fill in fire pits and leave the grounds as you found them and the way nature intended it to be. Take everything with you you arrived with. Back to Top

We ask for as limited number of campfires as possible and that you join our community bonfire instead. There is no need for everyone to have a campfire so close to one-another and it creates a safety hazard.

Our Community Bonfire will be located central to the festival, in GA Car Camping.  It will be plenty big enough for everyone.  Back to Top

Camping space is not assigned per ticket. Camping space is assigned per vehicle.

Upgraded VIP Campsites with Electric and Water vary in size but are much larger than GA spaces. The amount of space should house ALL of your camping gear, shade tents, tents, and vehicle. It is your responsibility to make sure it fits.

GA receives 12×30’ of space for each car that arrives with up to 4 people in the car. If there are 5 or more in a vehicle, the group will be provided two camping spaces totaling 24’x30’. This amount of space should house ALL of your camping gear, shade tents, tents, and vehicle. It is your responsibility to make sure it fits.

Shaded Woods camping is located closest to the main stage. There is no set amount of space in Shaded Woods camping. Woods camping is a first come first serve basis with the proper ticket. You will hike from your car with your camping gear into the woods for 5-10 minutes. If you are concered with carrying gear, Festi-Cab can bring you and your gear, or you should bring a gardening cart with off road wheels. Back to Top

19. Can I bring a trailer full of my camping gear behind my vehicle?

Trailers should be avoided at all costs unless you have calculated that they will fit within your camp site assigned space per vehicle. If you do bring a trailer, and have 4 people in your car, you may be provided an additional camp space to support car pooling groups, however, 3 people will only be provided one space, so please keep the dimensions of your trailer in mind. Back to Top

20. Can I bring a grill to cook with?

Charcoal and gas grilles are allowed currently. If a burn ban is placed, no grills will be allowed in camps. It is your responsibility to ensure no burn ban is in place before showing up to Backwoods if you are bringing a grill. Back to Top

21. What is Shaded Woods Camping?

Shaded Woods Camping is located in the General Admission area and is a first-come, first-serve basis when it comes to allotted space with the proper ticket. Campers in Shaded Woods camping will park their cars and hike their gear into the woods for a short walk. Woods camping is closest to the main stage.

Campers shall not camp on the road/path in woods camping and should camp off the side of the main walk-path. Car Camping tickets are not allowed to camp in Shade Camping.

There are no shower or toilet trailers in woods camping, but those camping here will have access to Porta-potties and a “Pay-per shower” or “Weekend Shower Pass” available for purchase. Porta-potties are located on the main paths between the GA Car Camping and Shaded Woods Camping area. Back to Top
