We do have plenty of space left in the Sage Flat and Shoreline areas for RV/Trailer campers, and in the Forest and Pondside areas for tent campers



Millpond Music Festival has seven separate areas for camping, one of which is sure to satisfy your camping needs. Set at the foot of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains in Eastern California, the Millpond Recreation Area is an ideal festival setting with unparalleled scenery. Campsites fill up quickly, so reserve early.

If you want to reserve the same camping space that you had at last year’s festival, we will guarantee that spot only if you call the ICA office ON MONDAY APRIL 3rd – We do not reserve campsites for anyone before this date. After April 3rd, all spots are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. No camp sites will be sold without a festival ticket purchase.

Festival camping tags are for Friday and Saturday nights. Thursday night and Sunday night camping on the festival grounds will be available on site at the festival, and will not be pre-sold. Camping will be available on Thursday night at Sage Flat for $20 a site. Thursday night campers can bring their vehicles in after 2pm. Camping will be available Sunday night for $20 everywhere on the grounds. Thursday and Sunday night camping options offered through ICA do not apply to Brown’s Campgrounds. For more information on camping at Brown’s Campground before or after the festival, please contact Stacy at 760-873-5342. For regular Friday/Saturday night camping tags in Brown’s, please call ICA at 760-873-8014. For those of you that would like to pitch an extra tent for your children, an extra kid’s tent tag will be sold for $20. These tags must be purchased at the same time as your regular tent tag. A limited number of kids’ tent tags will be made available at the festival site.
