NEW CAMP 101
New Camp is a crowd favorite! This are of the site is massive with shaded camping in The Old Forest, a field for car camping or general camping, easy access to your vehicle, and some of our most delicious food vendors serving up organic food, smoothies and more. This is the only area of camp that has free parking. It is also a very chill area and quiet at night for those who seek a restful and relaxing sleep. This camping area is adjacent to The Big Bottom, located less than 200 feet from The Fox Altar and less than 10 minute walk to the nearest shower house.

We are patiently awaiting another full moon at Big Dub. New Camp can get a litlte dark. However we encourage everyone to plan ahead and bring a bright flashlight so you can see at night. Use rope lights and LEDs to light up your camp site and decorate it to make it recognizable. Travel in pairs or with a group of people. And most importantly NEVER leave valuables in your tent. Keep cash either on your or in your car.
There is no charge to come & go from New Camp. Feel free to come & go as you please but be mindful that we heave heavy arrivals on Wednesday!
