CAMPING & PARKING
Camping is included with all multi-day passes, and is available on a first
come, first served basis. If on-site camping fills to capacity, off-site
camping is provided.
- Detailed arrival info will be available this spring.
Camping is designated on a first come, first served basis. When on-site camping
is at capacity, off-site camping will be assigned. The fairgrounds have permanent
restrooms and showers, and we supplement the facilities with ample portable toilets,
a shower trailer and a portable sink unit. Camping at High Sierra can be quite
cozy, especially in the more popular areas such as Shady Grove, Hillside and
Big Meadow. Please be courteous and take only the space you need. Roping off
areas and saving space for latecomers is not acceptable festival etiquette. Regardless
of where you camp, bring shade structures, tarps or anything that will help create
a shaded area in your campsite as summer days in Quincy are very warm.

We try to create a more kid-friendly environment in the eastern end of the Shady
Grove campground (quieter late at night; louder early in the morning). If you've
got little ones in tow and you are interested in camping in Family Camp, let
your shuttle driver or parking attendant know and you'll be pointed in the right
direction. An On-site Vehicle Pass is required for parking in Family Camp, and
as always space is designated on a first come, first served basis.

Vehicle Passes ($125.50) are available only to those with 4-day festival passes. There are no vehicle ins and outs. On-site parking spaces will be
assigned on a first come, first served basis according to our parking
plan. Parking areas and camping areas are separate - walk-in camping
areas are close to parking areas. Single day parking is located off-site in our Express Lot.
On-site RVs and Buses
A very limited number of On-site RV Passes ($399.50) are required
for all vehicles longer than 18' including trailers. On-site RV passes
are available only to those with 4-day festival passes. RVs and buses
will be assigned spaces based on what is available at the time of
entry. Hookups are not guaranteed. RV passes are entitled to a 15'w x 35'l space which
must include your vehicle and any tents or shade structures. If the
vehicle is longer, please contact us in advance for special placement. Tow vehicles must be removed from Big Meadow and RV Town after trailer is set.
Patrons with a valid, state-issued accessible parking placard or tag must purchase the appropriate parking pass in order to park on site. Upon arrival, show the parking attendant your Vehicle Pass and valid accessible placard and you will be directed to our Accessible Camping, centrally located within the fairgrounds and in close proximity to accessible bathhouses. In an effort to better serve our patrons with mobility disabilities, we ask that a pre-festival Accessible Camping and Parking Request Form be submitted.
