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. 

ada accommodations

We will be working to ensure all Juggalos have access to all the entertainment and services, regardless of ability. The following is a list of ADA accommodations.  

  • ADA PARKING: Vehicles with a valid Disabled Person Parking Placard will be allowed to park in the ADA parking area, which is the closest parking location to the stages available.  
  • ACCESSIBLE BATHROOMS: Located throughout the grounds are accessible port-a-johns. 
  • WHEELCHAIRS & ADA SCOOTERS: Bringing personal forms of ADA transportation are encouraged for those with disabilities, including wheelchairs and ADA scooters.

(Please ask for the ADA taxi cell phone number at the Box Office or Info Tent if you need this service.) Please do not call for this taxi unless you truly need assistance getting around, as you would be depriving others who rely on this service.

Security

Anyone who needs to get a hold of security for any reason can either go to the Ticket Booth (located by the front entrance) or the Information Tent. Security personnel will be located all throughout the Gathering grounds as well and will be there to help you if needed. Their purpose is not to restrict people’s fun, but rather ensure everyone is acting in a safe and non-destructive manner while at the Gathering. 

Rules

The following is a list of key rules to help keep everyone safe and ensure a good time for all. We ask that everyone respect the property of Legend Valley. The family that has allowed us into their home are good people, who have not only opened their arms to us, but have also proven to have a complete understanding and respect for our family. We also ask ninjas to refrain from showing up early to the Gathering. This has caused problems in the past, and we ask that everyone honor this request as well as the following other rules: 

  • No selling of illegal substances or the breaking of any other laws. 
  • No underage or excessive drinking, or substance abuse. 
  • NO GOLF CARTS, MINI BIKES, FOUR-WHEELERS, OR MOTORIZED VEHICLES. 
  • Children must be supervised by adults. 
  • No vandalism or destruction of property. 
  • No cutting of trees, damaging plant life, or hurting wild animals. 
  • The speed limit while on the grounds is 5mph. 
  • No animals. 
  • No weapons, glass, or dangerous objects. 
  • NO FIREWORKS. 
  • No spray-paint. 
  • No outside firewood (Legend Valley will be selling firewood if needed). 
  • No littering, especially at the campsites. 
  • No selling of food or manufactured merchandise (especially bootlegged merch).
