We have many areas to camp at Soulshine, most of which are located in the Pines. It is a cool and shaded area that has easy access to the Pine Stage and Saw Mill. Most of the primitive sites are here. The Pines has rows of planted pine trees great for hanging hammocks. Primitive Camping onsite comes with every weekend pass ticket.


With an upgrade from primitive, you can purchase a Car Pass or an RV Pass to have your vehicle with you for camping. The RV camping area is down the main road into the Pines along side the Saw Mill with access to the main Shine Stage area and the Pine Stage. Most or these sites can accommodate RVs up to 32'. Sorry, NO electric, water hook up, or sewer available. All sites are primitive. Generators are allowed in the RV sites area only. Authorized operating times are between 8am to 11pm. We also have RV camping in KC Ridgetop and KC Field RV camping. Please see descriptions HERE. Thank you!

Family/Quiet Camping is located behind the main Shine Stage area with primitive camping only. Sorry no car/vehicle in this area, IT IS A HIKE IN ONLY AREA. Once camped, it has easy access to the Shine Stage, healthy food vendors, artists and craft vendors, Kids area/stage, potable water, porto johns, first aid, workshops, Info Barn, Artist Gallery and lost and found. There is a easy, 10 minute walk, walking path from the Family/Quiet Camping to the Pine Stage in the Pines.

Potable water stations, porto Johns, trash cans, recycling cans are located thru out the festival grounds for your convenience. You will receive a complimentary 'Clean is the new Green' trash and recycling pack at the front gate, with a plastic trash bag, plastic recycling bag, and info where to deposit for easy pick up. Collections will be thru out the festival. Thank you for your help!
