Camp Bisco 2018 Set Times & Festival Map:
A map of the grounds will be posted on the Camp Bisco app shortly before the festival begins.
To camp at Camp Bisco, you will need to purchase a 3-Day Pass (GA or VIP) + Camping Bundle. Be aware that simply purchasing a 3-Day Pass will not allow you access into the camping grounds. The 3-Day Pass + Camping Bundle gets you access to the entire festival grounds (including the waterpark), campgrounds, and RV lot. If you have already purchased a 3-Day Pass without the Camping Bundle, you can contact Front Gate Tickets to make an exchange.
Because Camp Bisco takes place on top of a mountain, camping looks a little differently than it may at other festivals. There is NO car-side camping at Camp Bisco. To help make setting up camp a little easier, there is a wagon service to get you from the camping parking lot/gear drop off area to the campgrounds. A large number of shuttles, all-terrain golf carts, and staff are provided to make your camping experience as easy as it can be on Montage Mountain.
There is continuous valet service throughout the weekend, but it is encouraged that Camp Bisco attendees still pack light and bring something with wheels to transport gear in (such as a utility cart or wheelbarrow).
If you’re okay with spending a little more, several Glamping options are available at Camp Bisco 2018. Check out the festival’s Glamping bundles to make your camping experience just a little more seamless. If you’re not camping, you can park on onsite lots if you paid for a parking pass. Onsite parking passes are currently sold out, but not to worry: you can park at an off-site lot and be shuttled to the event from there.
