Camping/Accomodations

Festival Entrance : $10 Per Person for the entire weekend.

Camping : is available at the festival site for $10 per/person. : This is traditional tent camping. Fires are allowed in the fire pits provided around the field.  Please limit fires to the “official” fire pits.   There are many families with kids and campers with dogs at the festival, please drive carefully.  Also, the camping area is relatively close to peoples homes, please lower the noise after 11 PM.

Water : Drinking water is available on site via two freshwater spring pumps.

Fires : Firewood will be available on site at no charge but it is always a good bet to bring some extra from home just to be safe. Please don’t waste our firewood with bonfires.

Bathrooms : Port-o-Johns with hand washing stations will be available throughout the festival.

Dogs : are welcome but must be on  a leash. Please be sure to pick up after your furry four legged friends.  New this year:  The Ethel Fund will be providing dog sitting services for boaters that need it on Saturday of the Rendezvous.

Food : Will be available on site from a variety of vendors. In addition there are numerous restaurants within a short distance of the festival site.

Showers : Other than the rapid named “Showers” at the canyon put-in, you are going to go au natural for the weekend aside from any unintended “swims” during your paddling adventures.

Beer : Will be available on site. Cost is $2.00 for a 20oz plastic cup. The sale of beer benefits the Benscreek Canoe Club and is a big money maker for us during the event. PLEASE DRINK OUR BEER. And due to liability issues, no other alcohol may be brought into the festival area.
