Camping at Millpond

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 in the Brown’s Campground that you had at last year’s festival, we will guarantee that spot only if you call the ICA office ON MONDAY APRIL 2nd – We do not reserve campsites for anyone before this date. After April 2nd, 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. Thursday and Sunday night camping is $20 a site and will be collected by ICA staff. Thursday night campers may not bring their vehicles into the park before 2pm on Thursday. 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 Macy at 760-873-5342. For Friday and Saturday night camping in Brown’s, please call ICA at 760-873-8014. For those who would like to pitch an extra tent for your children, an extra kid’s tent tag is available for $20. These tags must be purchased along with your regular tent tag. Every tent and RV/Trailer on the festival grounds must display a camping tag.
