Living in the beautiful outdoors surrounded by acoustic jams and good company…What can be better than that?
We operate two campgrounds within Birds Hill Park – the Festival Campground and the Quiet Campground . If you want to camp in one of these campgrounds, make sure you buy the right ticket .
The Birds Hill Provincial Park Campground is another camping option. Reservations are required through the Parks Reservation Service, which opens on March 24, 2014. These sites typically get booked up pretty quickly, so we recommend making your reservation right on March 24 if you have your heart set on camping there.
The West Gate of Birds Hill Provincial Park opens at 7:00 AM on Wednesday.
Please arrive at 7:00 AM at the earliest, when we are ready to welcome you. For your safety, line-ups on Hwy 59 are not allowed.
The Festival and Quiet Campground Box Offices will open at 8:00 AM Wednesday morning and our friendly volunteer crews will be ready to greet and wristband you. Many campers arrive for the campground opening, so expect a wait.
The East Gate, located off of Hwy 206, will be closed until the campground rush is finished. It will open sometime mid-morning on Wednesday.
The Festival and Quiet Campgrounds close on Monday at noon. We need everyone’s cooperation to leave the campgrounds by noon.
Birds Hill Park gates are closed between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM daily.
Minors (under the age of 18) must be accompanied by an adult, to a limit of four minors per adult. If you are a guardian of an underage camper, you need to be with them in order for them to receive exchange their ticket for a wristband. And remember: You’re responsible for them for the duration of the Festival.
The Quiet and Festival Campgrounds are not serviced and all vehicles are parked in parking lots separate from the tenting grounds.
Parking lots are located by the Quiet and Festival Campground entrances and all campers must move in their camping gear by foot. We suggest bringing a wagon!
A free shuttle travels a round trip route around to all three campgrounds and the Folk Fest site every 30 minutes during Festival hours to take you from the campgrounds to the site. You can bike around, too - we have bike lock-up areas in the Quiet and Festival Campgrounds and at the Main Gate.
RVs are welcome in both the Quiet Campground and Festival Campground, however all RVs in the Festival Campground must have a RV Vehicle Ticket, as space for RVs is limited there.
Campsites cannot be reserved. If you want to camp with a group of friends, you need to arrive together to ensure you get a spot together.
We operate by the "leave no trace" principle. We respect the land and love our Folk Fest home and we want to leave the park exactly how we found it every year. Pack out what you pack in to your campsite and be sure to keep your site clean and tidy for the duration of the Festival.
