Frequently Asked Questions
Can we leave the festival grounds and re-enter?
Yes, but you will need to go through the main entrance and vehicle checkpoint each time you leave and return. In order to keep the driving lanes open for those that need or wish to leave, it is important that everyone keeps their camping gear close to their vehicles and not in the driving lanes. Due to concerns for the safety of Stone River patrons, the festival organizers may restrict traffic to a defined period during daylight hours. More information will be posted when and if that decision is made.
What will you be providing at the campgrounds?
There will be bathrooms (Port-a-John), hand wash stations, and potable water. A general store will be selling sundries (some food items,water, ice, soda, etc.) Vendors will be selling a variety of reasonably priced foods, beverages and snacks. Please bring enough money for any additional expenses you may have(the nearest ATM is 3 miles away in downtown Chandler)

The fire must be entirely contained and off the ground. Please keep the fires as small as possible and extinguish them as soon as you are finished.
When you are done cooking with charcoal, put it out with water before going into the show, going to sleep or leaving your camp, rather than letting it burn out over time.
