Camping at Millpond
Millpond Music Festival has seven separate areas for camping. Located at the foot of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains in Eastern California, the Millpond Recreation Area is an ideal festival setting. Campsites fill up quickly, so reserve early!
If you camped in the Brown’s Campground last year and want to reserve the same space, we will guarantee that spot only if you call ICA ON MONDAY, APRIL 1st. We do not reserve campsites for anyone before this date. After April 1st, all spots are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. No campsites are sold without a festival ticket purchase. Every tent and RV/trailer on the festival grounds must display a camping tag. Families who are tent camping may purchase an extra children’s tent tag for $25. These tags must be purchased along with a full-price tent tag.
Thursday/Sunday Night Camping: Festival camping tags are for Friday and Saturday nights, with the exception of Brown’s. Thursday and/or Sunday night camping can be purchased on site and will not be pre-sold. Thursday or Sunday night camping is $20 per site and is collected by ICA staff. Thursday night campers may not bring their vehicles into camping areas before 2pm on Thursday. There is no early access for tent campers for Thursday night.* To camp at Brown’s Campground Thursday night, please call the campground at 760-873-5342. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night camping in Brown’s is processed through ICA.
*This policy will be temporarily suspended for the 2019 festival. We understand there may have been unsanctioned leniency in the past. We will review this policy before the 2020 festival. (Updated 9/19/19 @ 1:15pm)
