CAMPING

INFORMATION

Our forever home features rolling hills and wooded areas with space available for both tents and RVs or Trailers. Catch up with friends, make new ones — and definitely bring your instruments for some late night jams around the campfires.

Bringing the whole family? No worries — we have a dedicated family camping area, too!

GENERAL ADMISSION

Each individual camper must have a General Admission Festival pass plus the Camping Add on.  For Platinum and Gold buyers, camping is included. Children 12 and under do not need a camping pass as long as they are accompanied by a paid adult.

ADD ON: CAMPING (THURS-SUN)

Camping at Old Settler's is not included in your General Admission ticket (unless you are a Gold or Platinum buyer). You must purchase a camping wristband and a campground parking lot permit. If you have an RV/Trailer or sleeper vehicle, you must purchase a permit for it. That permit includes an electrical hookup and a campground meadow parking permit for your tow vehicle. The camping add on is good for Thursday through Sunday camping.

CHOOSING YOUR CAMPSITE

Old Settler’s beautiful campground offers several options – wooded areas and rolling meadows.  You’ll need a General Admission Wristband and a camping pass to enjoy all that the campground has to offer. Children 12 and under do not need a camping pass as long as they are accompanied by a paid adult.

Camp Armadillo is the first campsite on the right after you enter the property.  It is a wooded area that can accommodate all sizes of RV’s alongside tent campers.  All RV’s must have a Camp Armadillo parking pass (which comes with the RV Pass). You may park next to or near your campsite.  You must have the proper credentials for all RVs or trailers and parking.

Camp Banjo is a wooded area located directly across the arena where Friday and Saturday performances are held.  It is also the site of the Campground Stage.  RV’s over 18′ park on the perimeter of the campgrounds.  RV’s and trailers 18′ and under, those camping in their cars, and teardrop trailers will be allowed inside Camp Banjo.  There is a separate fee for all RV’s and trailers.  Your RV or trailer pass comes with one Meadow Parking Lot or Camp Armadillo pass.  After your trailer is parked, you can unhitch and park your tow vehicle in the Meadow Parking Lot.  If you prefer to have your car in Camp Banjo, you’ll need to purchase a special Camp Banjo parking permit.

Camp Collings is the wooded lot right across from the Meadow Parking Lot.  All RV’s and trailers, regardless of size, can park on the perimeter.  All cars should be moved to the Meadow Lot.  There is no parking for any vehicles within Camp Collings.

Primitive Camping. Prefer to get away from it all?  There are beautiful, primitive camping areas in the trees along the perimeter of the meadow and there’s a small clearing near the back of the property that offers primitive camping.

Need family camping so your little ones can get some rest? There will be a designated area just for you.

Old Settler’s believes that music lovers of all abilities should have the opportunity to enjoy the festival together.  Accessibility camping is located in Camp Banjo and we are happy to help you get the most out of your festival experience.

EARLY BIRD CAMPERS

We welcome early campers, but if you do choose to come early, it will cost an additional fee for your RV/trailer or tent.  The fees are calculated by the number of days you come early. Campsites are first-come, first-serve.  Roping off or reserving spots is prohibited.  Early Access Box Office Hours are posted below. These are the only times during which early arrivals will be admitted. You must have both a GA Festival Pass and a Camping Pass to attend early.  No one else will be allowed on the property.

LUXURY TENT RENTALS

Don’t have a tent? Skip the setup and tear down with beautiful pre-pitched accommodations. Old Settler’s attendees now have the option to book affordable, limited quantity, fully furnished camping and glamping bell tents for a fun and hassle-free experience.

*Price EXCLUDES Festival tickets. You must each buy a GA four day admission pass and a Camping Add on Ticket.

RV/TRAILER PASS

RVs and trailers over 18′ will be charged an additional fee over the cost of camping tickets.  RV’s and trailers 18′ and under will be charged an additional fee over the cost of camping tickets. A campground parking pass for either the campground meadow parking lot or the lot near Camp Armadillo is included in this fee.  NEW this year:  your electrical permit is also INCLUDED in your RV/Trailer fee.  For the lowest price, buy your RV pass early!  RV water fill-ups and dump-outs are available for a fee.

ELECTRICAL PERMIT

If you are camped in a tent or have a separate structure and you want access to power, please purchase an electrical permit. If you need power for an additional structure, please purchase an electrical permit. There will be no daisy-chaining without an electrical permit.  Your RV/Trailer pass comes bundled with an electrical permit – no need to purchase.

CAMPGROUND PARKING

All vehicles in the campground – whether parked at a campsite or in the Meadow Parking Lot will be charged a weekend parking fee.  We will have a limited number of parking passes for the campgrounds.  The meadow parking lot is a short walk from Camp Banjo and Camp Collings.  We’d like to keep both of those campgrounds to a limited number of cars — ideally, we’d like to have as few cars as possible in those campgrounds. But we understand that some people really want their cars with them, so we do offer a limited number of parking passes in those campgrounds.  There is parking as available in Camp Armadillo — and there is also a small parking lot for Armadillo on the other side of the road.

SHOWERS

Showers are available in large, air-conditioned shower trucks.  They will cost a nominal fee.

CAMP HEADQUARTERS

Have a question? Need ice? Campground Headquarters will be open. Hours will be posted. You can also purchase shower tickets and rv fillups and dumpouts here.

While we have ample camping in on property, there are some alternatives in the area:
