RIVERCAMP

(All Ages)

Situated on the banks of Berry’s idyllic Broughton Creek, Rivercamp is Fairgrounds’ own campsite. Located just a few minutes shuttle ride away from the main site, there are a range of camping options to choose from, along with activities including YOGA, massage, lawn games and supervised river swimming. With onsite facilities dedicated to our campers, Rivercamp is the perfect place for groups of friends, families and everyone in between. We have food and drinks vendors, hot showers, medical and a general store to make your camping experience a safe and enjoyable one.

With a range of flexible camping options on offer, it means there’s a bed for everyone at Rivercamp, no matter what your budget or needs. Choose from pitch-your-own, pre-assembled tent and bedding packages, or a luxury bell tent experience. For infants, ages 0-2, you will be required to bring your own travel cots; these are not supplied and can not be rented.

Rivercamp entry is exclusively available to Fairgrounds festival ticket holders. If you are planning on staying at Rivercamp, you will be required to purchase both a FESTIVAL TICKET + A CAMPING PASS. All adults, youth and children 12 and under must hold these tickets. These tickets cover festival entry, campsite pass, use of campground facilities and use of the complimentary shuttle bus which runs on a loop between Rivercamp and the festival during festival hours. Infants, ages 0-2, do not require a camping pass but do require a festival ticket (there is no charge for this ticket, we just require an indication on numbers for safety purposes).

If you have already purchased your Fairgrounds ticket and wish to add camping, we have camping passes available HERE.

RIVERCAMP TICKETS

All Rivercamp patrons are required to purchase both a FESTIVAL ENTRY + A CAMPING PASS via Moshtix to gain access to both Fairgrounds and Rivercamp.

Have you already bought a festival ticket and have now decided to camp? That’s fine! You can easily add an Adult, Youth or Child CAMPING TICKET (until sold out). Just remember, you’ll need to present a festival ticket in addition to a camping ticket to get access to Rivercamp. Guests are not permitted at the campground.
