Camping on festival grounds is free at the festival grounds but you must have an advance ticket to enter the campground or have purchased a festival wristband! The grassy field can accommodate many hundreds of campers and tents, cars, campers and RV’s. There are wooden outhouses in the camping area, as well as the washroom trailer near the main stage tent, with hot running water. During the festival, the campground fills up, so we ask that you make the best use of the space. You may drive your vehicle through the field and park right beside your tent if you don’t plan on moving it over the weekend. The park is situated right on the edge of town just 2 blocks from the “downtown” area, making it very convenient for campers to walk wherever they need to go.
Campfires are permitted provided that there is no Fire-Ban on 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 you should plan to bring your own firewood to the site.
Water is available from the hose in the parking lot at Pine Tree Services just 2 blocks east of the park. An additional water supply may be made available at the park. Showers are available at the Caribou Laundry across the street from the Pine Tree Services.
Quiet time: the festival is about sharing music and art, and having a great time, but we must be respectful of those who wish to sleep at night. If you want to stay up to the wee hours and talk or play music please chose one of the other campgrounds.
The Old Atlin Runway: free camping. Best as quiet area for RVs and tents. Just off the shoulder of Discovery Ave and the current airport fence. Go east on Discovery Ave. 3 miles from Main Stage tent. No outhouses or water onsite…..but the price is right! Go another mile east on Discovery Ave. to see Pine Creek Falls, another mile further to the 100 year old Atlin Cemetary, and to Surprise Lake (10 miles) for some of Atlin’s best history and natural features. Fish for grayling at the Surprise Lake bridge.
Pine Creek Campground: campers, RV’s, Tents; $5 per night. This campsite is a volunteer-run community service for our visitors. It is located on the south side of Pine Creek just past the one lane bridge on Warm Bay Rd., 3km from town. It is picturesque and set on a pine bluff overlooking the creek. Each site has a picnic bench and contained fire pit. Wooden outhouses, recycling bins. You may need to bring or find your own firewood. Some sites can accommodate mid-sized RV’s. $5 fee per night to be placed in the Campground Jar at either the Trading Post or the General Store in town.
Pine Creek Beach: free, tents only. Approximately 3 1/2 km from town.
Laundry, Showers, Water, Outhouses:
Caribou Laundromat on Discovery Ave., across from the Pine Tree Services is open 24 hours.
Water is available from the hose in the parking lot at the Shell Station just 2 blocks S. of the park. Additional water is available at the park, as well as the Spring on Warm Bay Rd., approximately 3km from town.
Outhouses will be at the Courthouse, the Globe Theatre, at Tarahne Park, and in the camping areas.
There is a washroom unit with warm running water next to the Mainstage Tent at the park, as well as public washrooms at the Atlin Inn, the Pine Tree Restaurant, and Jenz Cafe.
Parking is slim around the festival site, so if you want to have your vehicle nearby it is best to camp in Tarahne Park and park your vehicle there so you can just walk the 200 metres to the festival.
