Campsite Policies

Tent Camping

  • A $250 damage deposit is required for each ShiftPod booked. One person from each ShiftPod camping group must provide a credit card, upon which a temporary hold will be placed until the ShiftPod and equipment are inspected upon checkout. You are responsible for any and all damages to the ShiftPod and equipment while in your possession and any repair costs and/or excessive cleaning costs incurred as a result of your use of the ShiftPod and equipment.
  • Each campsite will feature a power strip in which to plug in electronic devices. Charging stations are also provided in the Mesa, as well as near the shower compounds.
  • Each tent will be provided with enough power to sustain operation for the air-conditioning unit and power strip. Unplugging either the air conditioner or the power strip and connecting an external item runs the risk of overloading the circuit, posing a safety hazard to the rest of the campground. If a guest unplugs the air conditioner or power strip, camping personnel reserve the right to unplug the tent from the power grid for the remainder of the festival. This is for the safety and comfort of all guests of Camp EDC.

RV Camping

  • Each camper must have a valid festival ticket and camping pass and must arrive ready in their RV.
  • RVs may not be dropped off or picked up by a third party.
  • RVs must be Class A, B or C, ranging from 19′ to 45′.
  • Truck campers and fifth wheels are allowed, as long as they have a separate on-board generator (or purchase a power add-on, coming soon!), along with an air conditioner unit that doesn’t require the vehicle to be on to operate. No refueling service will be available, so campers are advised to use their accommodations accordingly.
  • You may not exceed the total permitted length of 45 feet, including tow vehicle if applicable. If you are bringing a separate vehicle or non-motorized trailer that can’t fit in the provided RV camping space, you must purchase a vehicle add-on.
  • All RVs must have a working air conditioner powered by an on-board generator—the vehicle engine may NOT be left running.
  • All RV guests must arrive to the campground with a full tank of fuel to prevent issues with air conditioning.
  • No personal generator refueling will be permitted.
  • If you have opted to purchase power, you must bring a 75-foot cable with the proper connector.
  • If you are connected to a 30A or 50A power supply, and your RV overloads the power source, tripping the fuse, the breaker will be reset and you will be issued a one-time warning. If it occurs a second time, your RV will be disconnected from the power grid, without a refund, for the remainder of the festival.
  • Once parked, RVs may not be moved until 9am on Monday, May 20, unless leaving the festival and not returning. If you would like to leave the campsite before the end of the weekend, please reach out to a Camp EDC staff member for an escort.
