PACK IT OUT

Plan to take everything you bring to the festival back with you.


We have a robust trash plan, however you should consider yourself personally responsible for everything you bring with you to the festival. Our goal is to reduce waste hitting the landfill as much as possible and that requires all of us working together with a commitment of packing up what we bring in.

PRO PACKING TIPS

The number one question we get is what to bring. Here's our top list of what to pack complete with tested 5-star reviewed gear we recommend to make it easier for you:
Government Issued ID
Easy To Set Up 4 Person Tent
Memory Foam Camping Mattress - literally the most comfortable thing we've ever slept on. 
Compact Sleeping Bag
Igloo Cooler - they're cold as ice
LED Headlamp (300 lumens)
Insulated Refillable Water Bottle
Compact First Aid Kit
High Fidelity Ear Plugs
10' x 10' E-Z Up Canopy
Solar Powered Portable Power Bank
Rechargeable LED Lantern
Rubber Mallet For Tent Stakes
Flamingo or Unicorn Floatie
Camping Area Rug

Also remember some basics:

Swimsuits
Warm clothes in case the temperature drops at night
Bug spray
Sun screen
Garbage bags
Food and drinks
Toiletries
Ibuprofen

First Aid Kit Blisters, scrapes, & scratches are common festival boo-boos. Save yourself the trek to the medic tent for a band-aid and pack your own. You never know!
Sunscreen You’re not invincible ya know. Don’t forget the aloe in case you get burned.
Lip Balm Don’t skimp on the sun protection.


Toiletries Don’t leave behind the toothbrush, toothpaste, feminine products, towel, and extra toilet paper never hurts.
Baby wipes These little guys make for quick cleaning when you don’t have me to shower (just don’t put them in the porta-potties please!). Hand soap/sanitizer At some point, you’ll need it.


Sunglasses Pro Tip – bring an extra pair!
Vision Care Extra glasses, contact lenses and/or eye drops
Vitamins & Meds Allergy medication, stomach or digestion aids, vitamins for rejuvenation and your prescription medication permitted with a prescription. 


Layering Garments: Bring cool clothes for the day and warm clothes for the night. Plan for highs in the 90’s in the day, with lows in the 60’s at night. Scarves, lightweight sweaters, beanies, cloves, tall socks.
Hats and headwear: Say no to naked noggins.


Scarves and bandanas: Wet these and toss ’em in the cooler for a refreshing treat.


Bathing Suit: Bring the right attire to take a dip and cool off in the lake.


Self Expression Through Style: Be you and do what you do with your bad self…we can’t wait to see what ya got! 

GEAR DROP OFF

If you are NOT camping next to your vehicle we will have a designated gear drop-off zone near the camp sites.


This will be a 5 minute loading / unloading zone for those that need to unpack their vehicles and park in our 

SILVER, BRONZE or DAILY PARKING LOTS


If you are in remote parking you may be allowed to utilize the drop-off zone or we may have a shuttle to help transport gear depending on the time and day that you arrive.

CAR-CAMPING

Parking your vehicle near where you're camping allows you to lock up gear, sleep in the vehicle and keeps your unload-time short and sweet. 


If you want to park next to where you camp you have two options for vehicle passes. 


UP-FRONT GOLD PARKING

This is a PARKING LOT and it's next to our Up-Front Gold Tent Campground. You can park in this lot and carry your gear from the parking lot to wherever you choose to set up your tent and keep your walk short. If you are able to park on the edge of the parking lot you can set up next to your vehicle, if you're in the middle you may have a 50 foot walk. These campgrounds are closer to the festival with a very short walk to get in the gates.


CAR-CAMPING PARKING

These are located in the Bobcat, Quail and Road-Runner camping loops. You will be given an actual space to park your vehicle where you can set up your tent next to where you park. These parking loops are about a 5-10 minute walk to the gates.


ELECTRIC CAR-CAMPING PARKING

If you want to car-camp with power hookups to charge phones and other electronics these coveted spaces are your best bet. Located in our Coyote camping loop which is also close to the festival gates. You'll receive a spot that has a 20 amp power circuit on it that will be shared between two camps. Perfect for running power to your camp but it will not support speaker systems or renegade stages.

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. 

TENT CAMPING

Camping out as a collective, we feel, is essential to the SSBD experience. Therefor, camping is included in every single pass. 


You will be allowed to set up your camp in all of the following campground. 


**To park a car you will need a separate parking pass, see the car-camping tab for detail**


BOBCAT CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

ROAD RUNNER CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

QUAIL CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

OWL RV CAMPGROUND

TENT CAMPING CAMPGROUND (NEXT TO UPFRONT GOLD PARKING LOTS)


You will NOT be allowed to set up camp next to Silver, Bronze, Daily Parking Lots or Remote Parking Lots. 


SHOWERS / BATHROOMS

If you're camping in Quail, Road-Runner, Coyote, Owl or Bob Cat 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 Gold Tent 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.

SHIFTPOD CAMPING (SOLD OUT)

If you're flying in from out of town or just don't want to bother with setting up and bringing your own tent we recommend you book a Shift Pod Campsite with us at the festival.


We set up a fully-enclosed, private area at the festival for you and your guests. The Shift Pod tent area is located close enough to quickly walk back and forth from the stages and has its own upgraded bathrooms.

FAMILY / QUIET CAMPING

We've set aside an area for those that want to keep quiet and camp around others that prefer the same. This area is at the far east end of our Up-Front Gold Campgrounds. To park closer to your campsite you'll need to purchase an UpFront Gold Parking Pass.

We are not taking reservations and this area is first-come-first-served.
