Clans:  

  • Clans are allowed one vehicle to park behind their tent(s).  If you are hauling a trailer, please let me know in advance so we can ensure your space has enough room to accommodate your set-up.  

  • Feel free to sell merchandise related to your Clan; please keep items within your tent. 

  • If you need to leave early due to an emergency, please let us know so we can safely guide you and your vehicle out of the park.  

  • You are responsible for setting up, manning, and taking down your tent. 

  • If you need to cancel, you have until September 1, 2024, to receive a refund.

  • If you are a no-show, there will be no refunds.

  • Please keep your area clean and return it to the condition in which you received it.

Legacy Clans:  Clans who took a chance on us our first year will be designated “Legacy Clans.” This means that provided the clan is represented every year moving forward, you will pay a reduced rate for tent spaces, can retain the same space year to year (dependent on the configuration (which can change), and can increase the #number of spaces should you need them), or request a different site the next year (providing the space has not already been reserved by another Legacy Clan.
