Yes! Feel free to come and go when you like. If you are parked in the campground however, please leave your car in place all weekend. 

is there beer?

We serve Arrowood Farms Brewing IPA, Lager and Stout in our fine collectible stainless Hoot cups. Please drink responsibly and enjoy the show!

Is this a good family event?

Absolutely. Many hootsters bring their parents AND their kids! This is truly a multi-generational event, where all are welcome and encouraged. 

are there showers in the campground?

The "musical" campground has a brand-new bath house which is open to anyone to use. The "quiet" campground has no shower facility. All campers are also encouraged to use the showers in the Longhouse.
