Traveling to Campout

While Four Quarters is remote, it is centrally located to much of the East Coast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.

Wednesday Arrival Passes

Last year, an unprecedented number of folks arrived Wednesday. It was too much for the venue and our front gate. This year we’re capping that number to improve everyone’s arrival experience. If you want to arrive on Wednesday, August 14, you must be arriving with a driver who has a Wednesday Arrival Pass.

Wednesday Pass Details

  • Covers 1 vehicle, max 4 passengers* 
  • Arriving with more than 4 people? There will be an upcharge. Buy a pass and then email us:
  • Includes Four Quarter’s parking fee ($25)
  • Choose between Main Camp or New Camp Wednesday Passes, so decide with your friends on this before June 6. There are limited quantities of both.
  • Glamping? You will have the option to add one of these during the checkout process. There is no need to purchase a standalone pass.

Main Front Gate

The original gate that most folks will use. Google Maps link to this entrance is here.

New Camp Gate

Our New Camp Gate was a big hit last year and will be expanded for 2024. More details are forthcoming, check back soon.


Four Quarters handles parking, $25 CASH per car. Re-entry is $10 CASH each time.

Front Gate Hours

WED: 10am-7pm
By appointment only. Email Us.
Exit only.
All guests off property by 11am.

New Camp Gate Hours

WED: 10am-7pm

If you arrive outside of gate hours, you will not be able to enter until we reopen in the morning. We close the gates at 7pm because it's unsafe to have cars on the paths and folks setting up after nightfall.

Driving & Ride Share

Carpooling with friends is the easiest option for folks living within the broader region. If you need a ride, or have an empty seat in your car, you can use our self-serve Ride Share document to connect with folks. We'll post this document once tickets have sold out for 2024.
