Camping: We have plenty of camping for everyone at our new site, The Lakes Music and Events Park, whether you have a big rig, a small trailer, or a tent (we have a primitive camping area especially for tenters). Our sites are much bigger than the previous location and we have many beautiful trees! We also have an RV dump station, potable water, porta johns and showers on site. We're right on the Paul Bunyan Trail and just 1/2 mile north of Pine River with lots of other activities in the greater Brainerd Lakes Area. You can now camp for up to 2 weeks starting August 20 and ending September 2, so come early or stay late!

All available electrical sites are reserved as of now, but we are planning to add more electrical sites this summer. We have plenty of camping for everyone, but until we are sure how many and which sites are going to have electric, we will not be selling any more sites until later this spring (please note that electrical sites require a minimum 4 night reservation and non-electrical reserved sites require a minimum 3 night reservation).  As soon as we are sure how many electrical sites will be available for the festival, we will contact those on the waiting list and open up other camping sites for purchase.

If you would like to get on the waiting list for an electrical or upgraded  site, please fill out the form below. If a site becomes available, you must purchase at the time offered to you.

All ticket and camping sales are final (no refunds) unless you have a death in the family or other emergency and cannot attend. Please call if you are requesting a refund under these circumstances.

In the event of the festival being cancelled or postponed (due to virus restrictions or any other reason) you will receive a complete refund of your admission tickets, or you may use for 2022 If you have made a deposit or full payment on a camping site, you may choose to leave your payment on deposit which will ensure that you will receive your same campsite in the following year. You may choose to request a refund of your camping payments instead, in which case, you will not retain your reserved spot but may purchase camping the following year from remaining available campsites.
