The lush outdoor environment, concert-friendly weather and camaraderie encourage concertgoers to camp out during their stay at the Gorge. Official camping facilities are provided just outside of the venue.
Campers get the choice of three different camp sites: general, premier and terrace.
A premier camping spot guarantees a more secure, secluded experience, along with access to private restrooms and a shower facility (also available to general campers, but with an added fee). Terrace camping is also available for those who want further peace and quiet, and a good view across the Gorge to boot.
Not all Gorge-goers swear by the venue’s camping area, though.
For those looking for a smaller, quieter camping experience, a popular option is the Wildhorse Campground, less than a mile from the venue on Baseline Road. The family-owned operation is celebrating its 10th year.
The Wildhorse Campground boasts a much quieter, laid-back atmosphere, limited electrical hookup sites for RV and camper users, and on-site eating establishment Corral Cafe. Also provided is a free shuttle service, which is available two hours before the show starts and runs every half hour until one hour after each show.
Prices are $30 per car each night, or $75 for RVs and trailers. Parties larger than four people will be charged an additional $10 per head at the gate.
