Camping

We realize tent camping may be a new thing for some. Don't sweat. We were new to it too. We're all in this together and we'll help make it easy for you. Our private community message board is packed with tips and tricks from attendees for newcomers, and you'll receive an invite to the board with your ticket purchase. All campsites are first come, first served. You will be given a map highlighting available camping sites. If you are car camping or using an RV, you will be placed at Hilltop Camp just inside the main gate. Traditional campers can place themselves anywhere on site.

Campsites do not have electricity, so come prepared for that. There is plenty of super clean, spring fed drinking water on site. We suggest bringing jugs to fill from the taps, which are easily found in all parts of camp. Bottled water creates trash. Remember, the only trash is you.

Gear Rental

If you don’t own camping gear or can’t travel with yours, an affordable option is booking a Netflix-style camping package rental from our friends at Outdoors Geek. You can have them shipped directly to Four Quarters, where they’ll be waiting for you at check-in. After camp, pack it back up and leave it with the front gate to be shipped back.

Glamping

Glamping package offerings are an option for those looking for an elevated, easier camping experience. We’re bringing it back with some minor tweaks based on your feedback. The packages include:

  • All setup and teardown (just show up and check-in)
  • Spacious tents with real mattresses and box springs
  • Towels, bed linens, pillows, chairs, lanterns and bedside tables
  • Quiet Portable Fans
  • Add-on: All-Weather (Awning + Entry Mat)
  • Packages for Two Guests (1 Queen Bed)
  • Packages for Four Guests (2 Queen Beds or 4 Twin Beds)

Glamping packages will be on sale soon – keep your eyes peeled here for the link when they go live.

Please note that glamping packages do not include tickets. General Admission tickets, Meal Plans, and Wednesday Arrival Passes are all separate purchases. If you do pick up a Wednesday Arrival Pass, your tent will be ready for your early arrival.

RVs

We discourage RVs, as they are far away from the action, and they bake in the sun. It ain’t cute.

If you still wish to use an RV, you must first call Four Quarters’ Office at 814-784-3080 and pay a $25 RV fee. Also, be aware that electric, water, and sewage hookups will not be available. Water sources are found nearby, but stock up. RVs with generators and storage tanks are the way to go (extra gas will help you here).
