Festival Entrance : $10 Per Person for the entire weekend.
Please note: Pavilions are now rented and reserved by boating clubs. We now have more clubs than we have pavilions; interested clubs need to contact Steve Podratsky regarding pavilion rentals. Also, we rent the park until Sunday. Please have all campers removed by 5 PM Sunday at the latest.

Camping : is available at the festival site for $10 per/person.  This is traditional tent camping with no electric or water hookups. Fires are allowed in the fire pits provided around the field.  Please limit fires to the “official” fire pits.  And help our volunteers manage garbage, if a garbage bag is near full, take it to a dumpster and ask us for a new one.  There are many families with kids and campers with dogs at the festival, please drive carefully.  Also, the camping area is relatively close to people’s 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 through the Boy Scouts for $3 per bundle but it is always a good bet to bring some extra from home just to be safe. Please don’t waste 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.

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 $3.00 for a 16oz plastic cup (we may have to charge $4 for craft beer if it costs us too much). The sale of beer benefits the Benscreek Canoe Club and is a big money maker for us during the event. PLEASE DRINK OUR BEER. Note that we will also have some wine for sale as well. And due to liability issues, no other alcohol may be brought into the festival area.

Note: Greenhouse Park is not open for camping except for special events.  Camping is available at Quemahoning Reservoir Recreation Area Stonycreek Launch (814 242-8219; 2869 Seanor Rd, Hollsopple; this is the closest camping), Camp Harmony (which has both Cabins and Tent & RV Camping), Nanty-Glo Park and at Duman Park. Quemahoning Recreation Area and Stonycreek Launch may fill early, call ASAP if you want to camp there.
