Camping options that are available this year include: Tent Camping In The Woods (included with weekend ticket), Carefree Camping (only 4 spaces remain available – we set up camp for you), Homestead Camping (sold out), Car Camping (sold out), and RV Camping (sold out.)

The Basics

Pendarvis Farm offers a wide variety of festival camping, most all of which is in wooded terrain. Camping spots are first come first serve.

All weekend tickets include camping (camping is not an option with single day tickets)

If you purchased an Early Thursday ticket you can come before the masses arrive and enjoy an extra night on the farm.

Camping Zones

The Quiet Camping Zone has been designated for those needing silence between the hours of 11:00pm to 9:00am. Please note that we do our best to monitor this area and try and keep it quiet – it is a music festival and sometimes late night noise is out of our control.

Jam Zones (Glade Jam and Stump Jam) have been designated for those that want to jam into the wee hours.

The Family Camping Zone is encouraged for the sole use by people with kids under 12.

Other Camping Info

When you arrive on site and intend on tent camping in the woods, you will first want to check in with our Camp Host to get info on prospective campsite locations as well as your spot in the gear shuttle line.

Once you have an idea of the general area where you want to camp, we suggest having one person scout and the other manage the gear drop off & pick up (if coming solo, well, you’re on your own for that one…).

The terrain is generally sloped and often it takes a bit of exploration to find the perfect site, especially as it gets later into the weekend. Generally speaking, those with smaller tents have an easier time finding adequate nooks, so maybe if you are a larger group or family, think about tent size and options that could help you best fit.

It is no secret that not all campsites at Pickathon are created equal, but we do work very hard to make sure that everyone with a weekend ticket can find a decent place to pitch their tent. Being neighborly and mindful of your footprint goes a very long way. Arriving on Thursday is always going to provide the most ideal camping locations.

Once you’re settled Pickathon is your oyster! Music and activities start Thursday evening and continue on through Sunday night. We have some hand picked craft vendors and a veritable cornucopia of the finest food and adult beverage vendors in Oregon. Choose your own adventure!

Pickathon features an amazing array of delicious and affordable food and beverage options that should allow everyone attending to eat all weekend without ever needing to bring a cooler full of groceries. However, you can bring your own food if you wish.

Ice will be available for purchase on-site.

Drinking water will be provided free of charge but you are responsible for bringing your bottles and cups to fill up from our water trucks onsite.

You can use camp stoves, but please be very careful.

There will be several ATM’s on-site and credit cards can be used at most locations.

Portable toilets, recycling, composting, dish rinsing, and hand washing stations are located throughout the venue and campground.

Beautiful custom showers are located onsite for $6 a use. Either bring your own towel or rent one from us.

No telephones are available to the public for local calls, but cell phones should work fine.
