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 4 different RockyGrass campgrounds below.

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

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

After the rave reviews for this new festival campground in 2014, we're making this special property available again in 2015. Located directly across the street from Planet Bluegrass, this gorgeous wooded campground under the St. Vrain cliffs provides soft new grass for tent camping and easy river access on the stretch between Planet Bluegrass and Meadow Park.

Located just downriver from Planet Bluegrass (an easy 5-minute walk), Meadow Park is a beautiful park under towering rock cliffs. As with all the RockyGrass campgrounds, jam circles are plentiful. Prior to the 2013 flood, Meadow Park provided shady campsites next to the river, as well as open camping in the field areas, and river access and tubing along the perimter of the park. Please note: The Town of Lyons is aiming to complete flood restoration of the Park by July 2015, but planning and reconstruction remains a work-in-progress. Top

  • Vehicles: If you need to camp next to your vehicle, vehicle and RV passes are available for Bohn Park. (If you do not need your vehicle at your campsite, inexpensive festival parking is available in a separate area of Bohn Park for a very nominal fee.)
  • Opens: 9am on Thursday, July 23
  • Closes: noon on Monday, July 27
  • Tickets: Price TBA. Onsale December 3 at 9:00am MST.
Located in the wide-open fields of Bohn Park, the Bohn Campground has a dirt jump bike park, the Heil Valley Ranch Picture Rock trail (for hiking and mountain biking), and a bathhouse (no showers). While this campground has very little shade (plan to bring your own), the panoramic views are gorgeous. Prior to the 2013 flood, the Bohn Park campground had easy access to the river (just past the confluence of the North and South St. Vrain Rivers) and a playground. Please note: As Town of Lyons planning and reconstruction remains a work-in-progress for the park, we do not yet know the status of river access and the playground. Top
