CAMPING

THIS YEAR WE’RE SO EXCITED TO OFFER YOU AN ON-SITE CAMPING EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER!

In keeping with our pursuit of magical AND safe times, we invite campers to join us on municipal grounds adjacent to the festival from 10 am, Friday, July 22 to 10 am, Monday, July 25!

Both tent and vehicle camping are available this year all within a 5-minute walk to the festival grounds! Because we are using a portion of the Centennial Fields sports complex and the municipal campground in relative proximity to a residential neighbourhood, we need to take extra care to leave no trace and be good neighbours. This means no campfires, a gentle touch and light feet on our grassy fields, and due respect and consideration for the incredible folks who live just on the other side of Loggers Lane.

Besides our gorgeous vistas, Squamish’s beautiful mountain setting means you will be camping in bear country. To keep both humans and bears safe, all food/coolers/etc. must be safely locked in a vehicle or locker when not at the campsite and overnight. Look for our bear safe guidelines to help you prepare for your magical Squamish camping experience.
