Onsite Camping

Hello Campers and welcome to our GCFF 2018.  We are thrilled you are planning to come and pleased to try and facilitate so many requests for camping.  We will do our best to keep you happy while respecting the private property of our friends, Paschal and Sylvia McCloskey.  We are offering a rustic camping environment immediately adjacent to the festival site with easy access to all activities.  Our festival is a family friendly event.   The OPP, local fire department and Township require GCFF to advise campers that they must comply with certain rules and requirements set forth below as well as all applicable federal, provincial and local laws.

 

Please note that everyone who purchases a camping pass will receive an email in the weeks prior to GCFF2018 with additional logistical information about campsite allocation, registration upon arrival, parking, wrist banding etc.
