FAQs include:

Q: Do we have to pay to hike Turkey Mountain if we aren’t going to camp?

A: Nope. The trails will remain open to the public throughout the day. Anyone who comes to Turkey to hike is HIGHLY encouraged to stop by the festival area and check out the vendors, music, and good times! Park visitors without camping passes have to follow park rules regarding curfew and alcohol.

Q: What’s up with “Quiet Time”?

A: Per River Parks Authority rules, there is no loudness after 11 pm and what a perfect time for beddy-bye. We STRICTLY enforce this policy. We don’t make you go to sleep, you just can’t be loud and noisy because others are trying to sleep. Hushed tones and sleepy sleep are a priority. Security guards will be patrolling throughout the night to make sure everyone is safe and sound. Quiet time ends at sunrise because we just can’t stop people from waking up. So, if you’re a late sleeper, bring earplugs and an eye mask!

Q: Is this going to be like Woodstock or Burning Man?

A: Heck NO! BaseCamp is a family and friends event. Our focus is a camping festival with cool music that families or groups of friends can come to that will all have a relaxed time. Definitely, watch the video above to get the best idea of what the festival will be like!
