Additional Site Types Added for SoulFest

SoulFest Campside:

The majority of these sites are located within the gates of our campground.  These sites are appropriate for either tent camping or for trailers that do not require hook-up.   

  • Site size is approximately 30’ x 30’.  These sites are laid out contiguously, so your may have campsites abutting on up to 3 sides of your site.
  • Site bases range from blacktop to grass to gravel with varying shade cover.  None of these sites are located in a completely wooded area, but some may have trees nearby providing varying shade cover.  Others are located in open fields with no trees nearby.
  • These sites do not include a fire ring or picnic table.  No open flame is allowed on site.  Propane or charcoal cooking grills are permitted.  Please do not help yourself to a picnic table or fire ring that may be on a site near you.  They belong to your neighbor who reserved and paid for a site with those amenities.
  • Onsite parking is probable but not guaranteed due to changing weather and ground conditions. 
  • None of these sections have a public water spigot.  There are water spigots located in the Pines, Brook Run, Daisy and Elm sections; or at the bathrooms and bath houses.
SoulFest Mountainside

Sites are located on the SoulFest Venue side of the property.  These sites are appropriate for tent camping only. No wheeled equipment will be permitted on these sites. These sites are well suited for large groups as well as individuals. 

  • Approximate site size is 30’ x 30’.  These sites are laid out contiguously, so your may have campsites abutting on up to 3 sides of your site.
  • They are located on our novice ski trails with a 10 to 15% slope grade.  Access to and from the venue and campground services does require walking up and down hill.
  • The majority of the sites will be grassy. There is no tree cover and no points on which to attach a tarp.
  • No on-site parking is guaranteed; however, convenient equipment unload/load areas will be available.  If ground conditions allow for on-site parking, you will drive on the ski trails to your site.
  • These sites do not have fire rings and picnic tables, and no open flames will be permitted on the sites.  Propane or charcoal cooking grills are permitted.
  • There is no public water spigot in this section.  The nearest water spigots are located at the bath houses.
  • Port-o-potties are placed near these sites.  Access to the campground bath houses is about a 1/4 mile walk.
  • The location of Mountainside sites will be made in the days just prior to the festival based on the venue setup and ground conditions.  We are not able to guarantee that you will be in a specific location when reserving your Mountainside site.
2-Night Mountainside sites

A limited number of Mountainside sites will be available for Friday and Saturday nights only.   There is the probability that these would be walk-in sites, with parking available at the base of the ski trail.  Campers on these sites should plan to arrive by Friday afternoon.
