At the Tarahne Park, campsites are divided into “quiet camping” and “not so quiet camping” areas. Please ensure you choose your campsite accordingly. Late night noise in the quiet will not be tolerated. If you’d like to stay up and play music, please do so in the designated Willow Jam Site in the bush just north-east of the campground.
Campfires are permitted at Tarahne Park, provided that there is no fire-ban at the time of the festival and that the fires are made only in established fire pits and kept under control. There are about a dozen fire pits so campers are asked to team up and share. Firewood is scarce in the area of the park, so plan to bring your own firewood to the site.
Pine Creek Campground is a volunteer-run community service for our visitors. It is located on the south side of Pine Creek, just past the bridge on Warm Bay Rd, 3 KM from town. Each site has a picnic bench, contained fire pit, wooden outhouses, and recycling bins. You may need to bing your own firewood. Some site can accommodate mid-sized RV’s. Fee is $10 per night
Pine Creek Beach is free, and available for tents only. Approximately 3.5 kms from town.
Boucher’s Field is free and available first come first serve for large RV’s and tents. Corner of Discovery Ave. and Warm Bay Road.

Security personnel will all have reflective vests on. They have radios and can contact emergency personnel if needed. As well, there will be a camper parked at the festival entrance that will always have Security Staff on duty and which will also contain a First Aid Kit.

Keeping Atlin Green
As this is a Green Gathering, please sort your recyclables, compost, and garbage into the appropriate bins at the waste management stations located at the Courthouse, Atlin Inn and throughout Tarahne Park. All recyclables will be returned to Whitehorse courtesy of the Rovin’ Raven Recycler.
We encourage you to bring your own eating utensils and travel mugs in order to reduce waste.
All compost will be taken nightly to Warm Springs Homestead to help grow the flowers for next year’s festival. Volunteers for Composting will be provided by Warm Springs Homestead and World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF).
