How to Camp at GO Fest

One of the best ways to experience the Anthem GO Outside Festival is to make a weekend of it.

There are several different tent camping options available this year, including glamping packages (make sure to reserve yours before they sell out).

Here’s everything you need to know about camping at GO Fest, Oct. 12-14 at River’s Edge.

There are two free tent camping options:

  • Family camping: This is a quiet camp area located on the south side of River’s Edge off Wiley Avenue. Water, porta-potties, fire pit, and lounges are provided. There is a drop-off area, but no parking will be allowed on Wiley Avenue. The Girl Scouts will host breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings. All proceeds will benefit the troops; breakfast is open to the public.
  • General camping: The not-so-quiet camping area is in Maher Field (baseball field next to the GO Fest site). Water, porta-potties, fire pit, and lounges are provided. There is no equipment drop off location. You will need to park in general parking and carry your gear to the camping area (think of it as a short backpacking trip).

Both camping areas require that campers check-in. You can find all the rules here.

Glamping packages are available again this year.

Show Sherpa and will make your GO Fest experience fun and care-free. All you have to do is show up, and everything will be move-in ready on Friday at 6 p.m. All proceeds go back into the festival to help keep it free. Glamping packages include:

  • Eureka! tent with 7′ of head room
  • 2 comfortable camping cots (twin size only)
  • 2 camping chairs
  • 2 sleeping bags
  • 2 GO Fest pints and 4 beer tickets
  • Sherpa Village Amenities (community tent with chairs, lights, porta-potties, phone chargers, complementary bag of ice, and water coolers for refilling cups/bottles)
  • Swag bag

Reserve your Glamping package here (limited number of packages available).

Off-site camping is also available for GO Fest attendees at Explore Park. Reserve a spot in a primitive group campsite in a remote and beautiful wooded setting. Take advantage of convenient parking, group campfire locations, and picnic areas just minutes from the GO Fest site. Camping from Blue Mountain Adventures is $10 per tent for a two-night stay and can be reserved online.

Unfortunately, GO Fest is not able to offer on-site camping for RVs and campers. The festival footprint has grown, and as a result, there’s not an area that will accommodate RV/Campers.
