Can I purchase a ticket on site?
Tickets can only be purchased ahead of the event. The event sells out in advance, so please do not show up expecting to buy a ticket on site (you will be around). In addition, guests without the appropriate wristbands will be escorted off the campground, and not allowed to re-enter any if they try to pay.
Will I receive a ticket?
No, your name will be on the list automatically. No tickets, shirts, parking passes will be mailed.
Are there refunds? How do transfers work?
There are no refunds. Tickets are transferable to other people, other Urban Camp Weekend events, or Urban Excursion Weekend events. Transfers and name changes are $25 per transfer before the deadline (October 15th) and $45 after. If you purchase/sell a ticket, it’s your responsibility to make sure the $25 (or $45) fee has been paid, and the ticket is actually transferable. RV’s, Cabins, previously transferred and/or discounted tickets are non-transferable to other events or people. If you originally bought a transferred ticket, early bird ticket, special promo ticket, or won a free ticket, it is non-refundable or transferable to another event or person. If your original ticket was less than $75, it’s non transferable. ALL TRANSFERS FOR URBAN CAMP WEEKEND 2017 MUST BE COMPLETED BY END OF DAY October 21ST, 2017.

Where do I set-up my tent (where is my cabin)?
Tents are set up on a first come first serve basis anywhere that’s not already roped off specifically by UCW. Well over 90% of our guests will be pitching a tent, so the earlier you arrive, the better. The 10 small cabins are located to the left as soon as you enter the campground. There are nine 10×12 (two-person) cabins with 1 full size bed, an a/c unit, and a picnic table and pit outside. The one12x16 cabin is four-person cabin with 2 full size beds and the same amenities. Neither of the cabin options have restrooms or showers, however there are private restrooms and showers located next to the cabins for you to use.
Where do I park?
When you pull into the campground, park against the back fence-line area. You will NOT be able to drive to your spot, and unload this year, due to the amount of campers. Cars that are not properly parked will be towed at the owners expense.
Can I bring my RV?
Yes (but contact us first, additional charges will apply) Each guest staying in the RV must be registered at the regular ticket price. We have 30 and 50 amp sites with electricity and water supplied for every RV or 5th wheel pop-up camper.
Can I arrive early?
Yes, you can arrive as early as 3 a.m. on Friday morning. If you want to arrive earlier in the week (ie Monday- Thursday), pay the campsite directly, and tell them you’re with our party once you get there. Don’t forget to register again on Friday to receive your two new wristbands which are different than the Thursday wristband. (You will be escorted off the property if you don’t have the proper wristbands)
Should I bring my Grill?
Absolutely! We may even give you some extra meat to cook!
My friend paid a cheaper price…?
Of course they did; they paid early. We’d make that friend drive for not telling you earlier, and don’t give them gas money! Our prices only go up as it gets closer to the event; they will not go down. But seriously, stiff your friend on the gas money and call it even!
Can I bring my generator?
Of course, but please bring extension cords so that you can place your generator away from other tents (if it’s loud.)
Is there electricity?
Yes (However, it’s very, very, very limited); bring a powerstrip, and maybe someone with a generator will share electricity… Again, it’s camping, you won’t really need it.
Is there security?
Yes, there will be 4 police officers on the premises at all times. We will also have a personal security officer in our area. (We haven’t had any problems in the past, and we intend to keep it that way)
Can you pay the camp site directly for our event?
No, we are in a private area with different wristbands. There’s really no need to call the campsite, even though people try it every year.
When is the deadline, and does the price change?
The deadline is a moving target, and yes the price will change closer to the event date. Pre-registration has traditionally filled up months in advance, forcing us to raise the registration fee or cut-off the registrations entirely.
Is food included?
Based on our recent surveys, we have started selling wristbands for meal plans. The majority of our guests grill or cook on their own, so there’s no reason for us to charge them for food they haven’t been eating. This allows us to keep the cost of camp down and enjoyable for all. There will be food for purchase via the meal plan, front office, and by various vendors on site. To guarantee food, meal plans should be purchased ahead of time.
