We have hundreds of sites available for on-venue camping. Sites cost $30 for the basic sites and $50 for specialty sites (RV sites with full hookups, etc.) for the entire weekend. That's 10am on Thursday until Sunday morning when you're supposed to "git". All sites have shared electric and many are near shared water hookups. There are also two dumping stations available on-venue, free to use for any registered camper.
Camping is a lot of fun and highly recommended. Hundreds of cachers take advantage of camping, resulting in a tent city. Feeling adventurous? Book your site in the Area 51 camping! Don't forget - if you camp... make sure to participate in our campsite decoration contest. Last year we gave away 3 GPS units to the top decorators and free 2016 camping to 7 runners up! We appreciate all attempts to decorate according to theme - it makes a huge difference in the event atmosphere! If you intend to decorate, you have permission to use any mascots, logos, etc. in your theme decoration.
For more info regarding camping, check out the full list of camping and venue policies.
If your style isn't camping out, there are a variety of hotels nearby - all about 1/4 mile from the grounds. A very short drive and a reasonable walk home if you need to. (trippy walked home each night last year and thought it was fine) The hotels span the spectrum of "fanciness" as well as cost. You will be able to easily find something that meets your needs and budget.
Walking Distance / Short Drive
This is a "Motel" style hotel, where all doors face the parking lot and your door is not in a hallway. Free wifi is provided.
