ALL Beardfest tickets (even single day tickets) include camping, however, CAR CAMPING Passes are sold seperately. Without a car camping pass, you will have to park in one of our lots within Paradise Lakes property. These lots are outside of, but not far from, the main camping area. If you have a lot of gear or for whatever reason don’t want to walk from the lot to the camping area, we will be providing a shuttle service at the price of $5 per carload of people. The shuttle will pick you up at a designated spot in the lot, and will have 3 drop off points within the campground that you can pick from. IF YOU HAVE A DISABILITY, the shuttle will be free for you. If your disability is of the nature that you can’t attend Beardfest comfortably without camping next to your car, please contact us via facebook messenger or email us at and we will be happy to accommodate you. IF YOU HAVE A SLEEPING SET UP IN YOUR STANDARD SIZED VEHICLE (Truck/hatchback/NON CAMPER), and that is how you plan to camp, but you missed the car camping cutoff, we have a special lot near the main camping area set aside for you, just purchase an "Overflow Vehicle Sleeping (Car or Truck)" Ticket. This can be purchased during the checkout process when you buy your festival ticket, or purchased on its own after the fact at
