2015 RockyGrass Camping

On-site campsite at RockyGrass
On-site campground at RockyGrass

RockyGrass is widely known as a "picker's festival." And that pickin' happens in the campgrounds - late-night intimate jams where the pros and the hot-shot festivarians trade songs and hot licks. Though the music on the main stage blows everyone's mind every single year, for many festivarians the campground scene is the RockyGrass experience. Learn more about the 3 different RockyGrass campgrounds below.

Once you have your camping passes, be sure to start thinking about our green campsite challenge.

(If you do not need your vehicle at your campsite, general festival parking is available nearby for a nominal fee.)

Saunter back and forth from the Festival to your campsite throughout the day. With easy access to the Planet Bluegrass bathhouse and showers, lots of shady trees, the St. Vrain River never more than a few feet away, and the ability to hear the festival from most campsites, on-site camping has become an extremely popular (and coveted) ticket. And that doesn't even begin to consider the world-renowned late night jamming that takes place late into the night throughout this campground.Top

Located just downriver from Planet Bluegrass (an easy 5-minute walk), Meadow Park is a beautiful park under towering rock cliffs. Shady spots are available close to the river, while the field areas are more wide open. Meadow Park is very popular for tubing - as the river passes over several rapids as it meanders under the cliffs. A swimming hole is located at one end of Meadow Park. As with all the RockyGrass campgrounds, jam circles are plentiful.Top

Located in the wide-open fields on the northwest corner of Bohn Park, the Bohn Campground has easy access to the river (just past the confluence of the North and South St. Vrain Rivers), a playground, dirt jump bike park, the Heil Valley Picture Rock trail, and bathhouse (no showers). While this campground has very little shade (plan to bring your own), the panoramic views are gorgeous. Top
