The Nocturnal Wonderland camping experience returns, once again offering a full weekend escape into our enchanted dream world. Join the community, make new friends, and take your festival experience up a notch with even more festivities before the gates to Nocturnal Wonderland open, as well as after the show ends.
Conveniently located right next to the festival site, our decorated campgrounds include an array of fun activities: the water park, the silent disco before and after the show each night, and daytime festivities such as arts and crafts, fishing and more. Camping will open on Thursday, September 4, so you can begin the adventure a day early.
Purchase a camping pass before they sell out, and we'll see you in Wonderland!
- Just like the festival itself, all attendees in the campsite must be at least 18 years old and have their own camping wristband. Attendees who do not have a camping wristband will not be allowed into the campgrounds.
- All campers must have tickets to Nocturnal Wonderland.
- No Single-day camping passes are available; two-day camping passes are good for the nights of Friday, Sept. 5 and Saturday, Sept. 6.
- You only need to buy one camping pass per car. Upon arrival, those camping within your campsite will receive a wristband, which will be required to re-enter the campsite after the event. Friends you meet at Nocturnal Wonderland will not be permitted to enter the campgrounds with you after the show, unless they also have camping wristbands.
- Each and every vehicle will be searched upon check-in and arrival at the campsite. Note that the more stuff you have in your car, the longer it will take to get through the line. So, please help the process move faster by bringing only what you really need.
- • You must travel with only the legal number of people that can fit in your car/truck.
- Car camping spots are 12’x30’. This is enough room for your car and one tent.
- Sleeping in cars/vans is not permitted.
- Upon arrival, you will be directed to the next available camping area. Please try to use a minimal amount of space around yourself and your vehicle so that others can share the grounds.
- Once your car is parked in the campgrounds, we would advise you to keep it parked there. Re-entry is not allowed, and there will be no additional overnight parking. This means that if you leave the campgrounds, your car cannot re-enter to park, and there will be no additional overnight parking nearby. If you have to leave for an emergency, you must get a campground manager to escort your car safely out of the campgrounds. Absolutely no car movement is allowed from 2–6 am. Please arrive prepared for the weekend.
