REI will once again help us host an awesome campout

Cap off Prairie Burn by sleeping out under the stars and wake up to a wonderful breakfast by Eat For Equity. Buy your camping pass when you buy your ticket and choose between two family friendly options.

REI General Camping

Our General Campers pitch their tent anywhere within two marked fields. One area lies out of earshot of our stages and is ideal for families with younger kids. The other will be within view and earshot of the main festival area and therefore better for those who intend to go to sleep after the last act finishes at 10PM.

All General Campers are invited to join us at 9AM on Sunday, September 17th, for a delicious breakfast hosted by Eat For Equity and are asked to leave Camp St. Croix by 11AM.

General Campers buy an Admissions + General Camping pass for every person, both adults and children, who will stay the night. It is not necessary to purchase a festival admissions ticket in addition to the Admission + General Camping pass.

REI Private Group Camping

Private Group Camping is for groups of up to twenty total people (adults plus children) who would like their own space. Our five Private Group Camping areas have comfortable space for 4-5 tents, a fire pit with firewood, a picnic table, a cooler with snacks and s’more making material, and a gift from REI. All five sites are vehicle accessible, sit on top of the forested bluff overlooking the St. Croix River, and are a five-minute walk from the central festival area.

All Group Campers are invited to join us at 9AM on Sunday, September 17th, for a delicious breakfast hosted by Eat For Equity and are asked to leave Camp St. Croix by 11AM.

One representative of a group that intends to camp together purchases a Group Admission + Private Camping pass. Two week prior to the event that group representative will be provided with twenty Individual Admission + Private Camping passes that they distribute to their group member. It is not necessary to purchase any festival admissions tickets in addition to the Admission + General Camping pass.
