Happy Camper Guidelines

Some rules are necessary to help make everyone's stay a little nicer!

Registering...

Before being allowed to enter the campground, you are required to register and sign the Liability Release Statement. Please stop at the gate and pay your entry fee and get your wristband. If you arrive at camp and nobody is at the gate, please fill out the registration form and sign the Liability Release Statement. Then, drop it in the drop box next to the registration table. You cannot be on the grounds unless you have filled out the registration form and signed the Liability Release Statement. Come back later and pay your fee and receive your wristband.

Wristbands...

You will be issued a festival wristband when you first arrive at camp. If you leave the grounds, you must show your wristband to the gate attendant when you re-enter the campground. When your window is rolled up, it is very hard to see you. Please have your window rolled down so we can see your wristband. It's the only way to know if you've registered or not.

Fires...

August is the driest month of the year in Centralia. THERE IS ALWAYS A BURNING BAN IN EFFECT IN AUGUST! If you want a camp fire, bring a propane fire pit. No wood or charcoal fires will be allowed!

Dogs...

Dogs are welcome, as long as they stay in your camp and are tethered at all times! The reason for tethering is that some people don't like dogs and some are extremely fearful of them. They poo when you're not looking and mark other camper's gear! They get into other peoples food and fight with other dogs. If your dog is a barker or whiner, leave him/her at home!

If you don't like this policy, please leave your pooch at a boarding facility or at home. There is a dog park nearby at Borst Park.

Always pick up after your dog! (Do I really have to mention this!?) I suggest that, anytime you see a pile of dog doo, you pick it up! It's just good PR for all the rest of the campers... THANKS!

Charging your Batteries...

GENERATORS ARE NOT ALLOWED!

Idling your engine to charge your batteries is also NOT allowed because of the exhaust fumes!

Solar panels and/or a larger battery banks is the preferred method of keeping the lights on in your rig. If you need to charge your batteries, please drive out of the campground or talk to Ray about other alternatives.


DRIVING AROUND CAMP...

Many people seem to be oblivious to the dust they generate while driving on K St.

While driving on K St. and in the campground, please observe a 3.5 MPH speed limit or less! To estimate how fast that is, imagine walking speed and then go slower!

It's the dry time of year and driving any faster than that creates dust behind your car. It is hard to see it from inside your car!

Please be considerate of your fellow campers and our neighbors on K St. and drive as slow as possible...Thank You!


Saving Camp sites for others...

Saving a campsite for someone who may (or may not) show up isn't allowed. However, there is a way to do it properly. If you want to save a site for someone, you may pay their fee and set up their camp for them. We will save their registration form for them to sign when they arrive. They will be issued their wristband when they arrive.


Don't Be A Bad Festival Neighbor...

Here's a somewhat humorous description of some bad festival behaviors to avoid.
