Quiet Campground

Campers enjoy the relaxed nature of the Quiet Campground. Of those campers, many are families who prefer peace and quiet at night.

If you're looking to get a good night's rest after those long days soaking in all the great sights and sounds at the festival, the Quiet Campground is the place for you! About 2,000 festival friends camp for the weekend in the Quiet Campground, setting up a magical temporary community in a wonderful forested area. It's 4km away from the festival site which is a leisurely bike ride, a quick commute or leave your car parked and take the free, convenient shuttle.

There is plenty of room for tents and RVs in the Quiet Campground and you don’t need an RV ticket to camp there. The designated RV area is Zone 6A. 

Operating Times

The Quiet Campground opens at 8:00 AM on Wednesday July 5.

Birds Hill Park gates are closed between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM daily.

Quiet time is in effect between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM.

The Quiet Campground closes at noon on Monday, July 10. Everyone needs to be packed out by then, leaving their campsites exactly how they found them – clean and green!


There are flush toilets and outhouses, water taps, picnic tables, fire pits and park shelters for communal use. 

A firewood and ice delivery truck drives around the campground in the morning and early evening. 

You'll find electrical outlets at each communal park shelter. Please do not leave cell phones or batteries unattended and be sure to share the plugs with your fellow campers! This is the only location with electricity in the Quiet Campground.

Lost and found is located by the Quiet Campground Box Office. 

Free Shuttle

The campground shuttle leaves every half-hour from marked bus stops along the main road from all three campgrounds to the festival site. Schedules are available at the Quiet Campground Box Office.

We need you to help create a safe and respectful culture at Folk Fest and in our Quiet Campground. Please remember that you are responsible for yourself at all times, and kids if you are attending with minors.

Safety volunteers (in blue vests) are there to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for you and provide help if you need it. If you see someone acting irresponsibly or requiring first aid assistance, please contact a safety volunteer. The Quiet Campground Box Office is your one-stop-shop for assistance. There is a first aid tent and safety volunteers to help you. 

We monitor weather and have a plan to deal with inclement weather and emergencies. In the event of an emergency, follow the direction of safety volunteers. Facebook and Twitter will also have up-to-date information.
