Dirtybird Campout is a full summer camp experience. In addition to great music and dancing, there will be extensive daytime and nighttime summer camp programming! Stay tuned for the Games & Activities announcement for a full list of activities.

Can I bring my own stove?

There will be electric plugins available in Group Camping and in RV hookups for electric appliances. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

We will have showers available throughout the campgrounds for $7 each. Don’t forget your towel, soap and shower shoes! There is no bathing in the reservoir – even if you have biodegradable soap.

Where can I brush my teeth?

You can brush your teeth anywhere you want. But we recommend doing it in your campsite and rinsing with a cup of water. You should brush at least twice a day and spit in a container or disposable bottle you can throw away, not on the ground!

I’m not a very experienced camper… are there any camping packages available?

Dirtybird Campout offers pre-set up boutique camping packages for those who want to come enjoy the campout experience and prefer the efficiency and ease of a pre-set camp option. Our boutique camping is called “Wise Owl Camp” and info can be found in the ticket descriptions. Get wise and let us handle all the dirty work and just sit back and enjoy your stay!

I want to get the right supplies for the weekend. What do you recommend bringing?

Depending on how you roll, camping can be simple and basic or it can be a timeless luxury experience. We recommend the following basics: tent, shade for tent, sleeping bags and blankets, camp chairs, lanterns, folding tables, trash bags, snacks and drinks, sunblock, bug spray, lip balm, good, closed-toed walking shoes, fun lights for camp at night time, flags and other identifiable objects so you can find your camp, and anything else fun you can think of. We want there to be plenty of space for everyone, so please be mindful of your footprint.

What will I be able to purchase on site?

There will be plenty of food vendors on-site to feed you throughout the weekend as well as several bars serving beer, wine and cocktails. Ice will be available to keep your drinks chilled and your food fresh. There will also be a Camp Merch Booth selling special edition Campout Merchandise in limited quantities.

Counselor in Training applications will be available soon. To get updates, sign up for our newsletter at Dirtybirdcampout.com/west.

Where do we throw away our trash at the end of the event?

We encourage all campers to pack out their own trash from the festival. That means leaving no trash behind and taking it all with you to dispose of in a proper receptacle off-site. We recommend bringing lots of trash bags and leaving extra room in your vehicle to haul your trash away when you leave. However, we will offer waste drop zones where you can responsibly dispose of your trash on-site. Sorted waste can be dropped off at collection stations free of charge, while unsorted waste will incur a fee per bag. More info will be available soon. Let's keep it beautiful, Campers!

Will there be a BBQ?

Yes! We will be grilling up some delicious meat and veggies. Our Campout BBQ will be sure to wow your taste buds! Specifics are in the ticket descriptions. You will be asked whether you want meat or vegetarian in the checkout process.
