Camping & Hotel Options

We Try To Make It Easy

We know, camping out for the weekend seems like a lot. But we try our best to think of everything so you don't have to. Here's all the info you need to know

Types Of Camping

Up-Front Campgrounds 

FREE TO CAMP HERE WITH GA OR VIP PASS

The Up-Front Campgrounds keep you close to the action with beautiful lakeside views. You can't park your car at your campsite here, there are multiple small parking lots throughout this campground so you can park very close to where you pitch your tent. This campground does not have showers although you can walk to other campgrounds to shower.

Car-Camping Campgrounds

FREE TO CAMP HERE WITH GA OR VIP PASS

The Car-Camping Campgrounds are spacious and allows you to park your car in your campsite so you can store gear in the vehicle or use your vehicle as part of your setup. The car-camping campgrounds all of brick and mortar showers that are free to use. The car-camping campgrounds are a little farther from the stages so prepare for a 5-10 minute walk to and from camp.

RV CAMPING OPTIONS

FULL HOOKUP SPOTS AVAILABLE

If you're bringing an RV you can ether park it in our Full Hookup RV spots that include 30amp power, grey water dump, running water and a full camp site next to the RV or you can park in our RV Parking Lot that allows you simply park your RV on-site at the festival. 

Glamping Options

Let us do the work for you by choosing to stay in our Glamping area. Our teams set up your full size bell tent or ShiftPod along with multiple beds, premium bedding, rugs and A/C unit options. Enjoy private showers, a private lounge to meet your neighbors and 24/7 concierge.

Camping FAQ

HOW DOES CAMPING WORK? DO I NEED A SEPARATE PASS TO CAMP?

Your GA or VIP wristband includes tent camping at the festival. You can set up camp in any of our campgrounds. All the campgrounds are free-form. There is plenty of space at the property for everybody to set up and camp comfortably, however we ask that footprints are kept reasonable (50 sq ft per person rule) and will enforce this if campsites are too large. 

MY FRIENDS HAVE A DIFFERENT PARKING PASS THAN ME, CAN I STILL CAMP WITH THEM?

If your friends got a different parking pass than you, you can still camp with them at their site. You may have a longer walk with your gear depending on where you park. All parking pass holders will be directed to the lots they purchased parking for.

ARE THERE FREE WATER REFILL STATIONS?

Yes, they are located all over the campgrounds.

MY GROUP HAS MULTIPLE PARKING PASSES, CAN WE ALL PARK AND CAMP NEXT TO EACH OTHER?

If you want to park next to your friends in our car-camping loops, you will have to arrive together. The spots will fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to arrive at different times and still camp together we would suggest purchasing one of our 80' x 80' Group Campsites.

CAN WE HAVE BONFIRES AT OUR CAMPSITE?

Fire's are only allowed in designated fire pits which are in car camping areas. You are not allowed to bring in outside fire pits or have fires anywhere else.

RV CAMPING

RVs are very welcome at SSBD, if you buy a parking pass for your RV there is no limit on who can sleep at the RV.


If you're bringing an RV to Same Same But Different you have two options:


 RV PARKING WITH HOOKUPS

*Best if you have friends that want to tent-camp nearby.

Spaces are 25 feet wide, maximum length is 40 feet.

This space includes a 30 amp power hookup for your vehicle and also a running water hookup and grey water dump for your vehicle. Black water dump located on-site nearby but not at your site. Campsite space is available around the RV to set up tents nearby if needed. These spaces are near showers and bathrooms with running water that are cleaned and maintained by the state park. Each RV space has its own grill / fire-pit and picnic table. If your friends want to camp with you they can. If your friends are bringing another vehicle they will need to purchase a separate parking pass depending on their needs. All RV and parking spaces are first-come, first-serve and cannot be reserved. No vehicles without this parking pass will be allowed into this lot.


RV PARKING WITHOUT HOOKUPS

This pass provides a parking space in our RV Parking Lot without Hookups. 

The parking spot is 12 feet wide by 40 feet long. 

If your RV is wider than 12 feet you must purchase a second RV Parking Pass. (Limit 2 Per Order)

Reserves a space for any RV, bus or towable trailer. 

Spaces are first-come, first-serve. 

This space is in a parking lot only, you can camp inside your vehicle however there is no space around it to set up tents. 


RV DROP-OFFS FROM THIRD PARTIES

If you plan to use an RV delivery service, the SSBD guest with the GA/VIP wristband and the RV parking pass need to arrive with rental delivery driver. Once the RV is dropped off, the delivery driver and their vehicle is expected to leave the property if they do not have a wristband and/or parking pass. 


Delivery drivers are able to enter to pick up the RVs on Monday without SSBD guest present.

SHOWERS / BATHROOMS

If you're camping in SHORT WALK CAR-CAMPING Campgrounds you will be located very close to state park maintained bathrooms with showers.  These facilities have running water for sinks, toilets and all have at least one shower unit in them. All festival attendees will be allowed access to any of the shower / bathroom facilities, however Up-Front Car-Camping Campgrounds will have a longer walk (5 - 10 minutes) to get to them.


These showers are all free to use by all attendees. We do not have paid shower options.
