Parking

There is a 15-acre field located near the front entrance to Legend Valley where you may park your vehicle for free. Keep in mind there is no camping allowed in the parking area! Due to fire codes, any campsites set up in the parking lot will be moved (go to the Info Tent for help locating your stuff if this happens to you).

 

Camping

Once you enter Legend Valley with your GOTJ ticket, you are free to camp in any of the designated camping areas on a first come, first serve basis. These locations will be clearly marked on the GOTJ map of Legend Valley, which will be available in the GOTJ program, and on this website. Keep in mind that the Gathering staff reserve the right to move any tent, vehicle, or campfire, to handle disputes, or if they are located on a road or an unofficial camping area (such as the parking lot). There are some key rules that everyone must follow when camping:

  • All tents and vehicles must be 15 feet from any other tent, vehicle, or campfire in all directions.
  • Do not camp in-between any row of metal poles, as these mark fire lanes that must remain open.
  • Make sure to safely contain, maintain, and extinguish all campfires.
  • All vehicles at a campsite must have the appropriate vehicle sticker pass placed on the driver's side front windshield at all times.
  • Please be respectful of your adjacent neighbors, especially when it comes to excessive noise at night.

 

Tear Down

After the four full days of flavor, it will be time to head out. Sunday (22 July 2018) is the official tear-down day when everyone will be expected to be cleared out of Legend Valley and the parking lot by Noon.

Rules

  • No underage or excessive drinking, or substance abuse.
  • No golf carts or four wheelers.
