Mountain View Park is located in a scenic section of eastern Pennsylvania. Camping is free with a weekend ticket. Sorry, no camping with one day tickets. A limited number of electric passes are available at $30 for the entire festival, Tue., May 24th thru Mon., May 31th. Please purchase electric pass in advance. In some years, they sell out before the festival. The camping electric has been greatly upgraded over the years, but still won't support air conditioning or electric cooking. In some areas, coffee pots may be a problem. It is for minimal use only, such as a shower pump, keeping your battery charged, breathing machines, minimal lighting, etc. Every vehicle using electric must have a purchased electric pass, even if one camper is plugged into another. Generators allowed only if they are reasonably quiet. If necessary, the festival staff will decide if they are acceptably quiet.
