It is both reasonable and awesome for you to do so, however, there is no power available for popup campers or RVs.
Can any camp be a "sound camp"?
As long as you’ve purchased a ticket, and let our Placement team know what you want to do, and what kind of system you’d like to bring out, you are welcome to “do your thing!”
Please read the Survival Guide folks – it’s there to help you!
You will be expected to comply with our Sound Protocols.
Contact placement AT lakesoffire.org for more details.
Are children allowed at your event?
Kids of all ages are welcome at Lakes of Fire. Parents and guardians are expected to look after the small ones in their care. Lakes of Fire’s rules and regulations regarding minors are available in the Survival Guide.
Can I leave the camp ground and come back?
Ins and outs are for emergencies only, this year. Please plan ahead!
What is the policy about non-sexual nudity at the event?
Nudity is allowed, please note that there will be children present and to use your best judgement. Participants should be aware that the southwest corner of the property is also in full view of the on-ramp to I-131.
Do you have to join a theme camp?
There is definitely open camping available!
What does "Participants only! No spectators please." mean?
"Participants only, no spectators please!" does NOT mean that you have to think up some huge art creation or performance piece to bring out, although if that’s your bag – hey, awesome! What it DOES mean is that we ask everyone to be involved in the event, and not just stand around gawking. Participating can be as simple a thing as dancing! It can be interacting with other people’s artwork. It can be setting up a little sandwich booth outside your tent, and giving away sandwiches one afternoon . . . or gin and tonics! It can be spinning fire, or even just cooking dinner for your friends and camp-mates. There also a myriad of volunteering positions that are necessary to keep this event running – working the gate, the greeters’ station, the earth guardians, etc. (You can find more about these by going to the Volunteer page.) All of these are modes of participation.
What’s NOT wanted is for people to show up, keep to themselves, never leave their campsite, stare at the effigy burn for an hour, then hit the sack and go home in the morning . . . or worse, to simply show up at 6:00 on Saturday for the big fire, and then drive home that evening.
Will pets be allowed?
We’re sorry. With the exception of ADA-qualified assistance dogs, pets are not allowed at Lakes of Fire.
Can I sell things at the event, such as hand-made goods or crafts?
We’re sorry. But Lakes of Fire is a no-vending zone that focuses on creating a gift economy. One of our core principles is that there is no vending at Lakes of Fire. Even bartering is discouraged. You and yours are beyond welcome to come out, and give away what you can. You will find that other participants want to give away everything they can too!
