Grey Fox Site Map
2013 Maps ~ Updated July 7, 2013
As you approach the Walsh Farm please observe and obey the signage and directions of the local law enforcement as they aid in your fair and safe arrival to the festival.
Camping at Grey Fox is flat and grassy. Tents, popups and RVs are all appropriate. To make the camping area safe and spacious, we encourage campers to park vehicles in the car corral (see details below). We ask that you take only the amount of space that you need -- not more than 20x25 feet per tent camping site. Please leave big stuff (ping pong tables, couches, etc.) at home. Be as economical with space as possible.
Camping at Grey Fox is "In the Rough" (no water or electrical hook-ups). For your convenience, we supply drinking water at spigots (at no charge) spaced around the campground. Our sanitation contractor will pump out your RV for a fee. To arrange for pump-out, pick up a form at the Ticket Booth or Info Booth and display in your window when you need service.
"High Meadow Camping" on the west end of the Walsh Farm is available for tent camping without vehicles. On Wednesday all day and Thursday until noon, you will be able to drive up to the end of the gravel road, drop off your gear, and then drive back down to park in the Grey Fox Car Corral. On Sunday you can drive back up to get your gear. Campers who park in the Car Corral are eligible to win prizes, including a ticket to next year's festival (see below).
WHO CAN CAMP?
The FULL FESTIVAL TICKET includes camping. There is a $20.00 fee to park on the festival site. The $20 parking fee is fully refundable if you park your car in the Car Corral for the duration of the festival. Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Camping begins at 7:00 am Wednesday (the day before the Main Stage music begins) and ends at 7:00 pm Sunday. Day visitors must leave the premises following the show each night. Grey Fox sells only 4000 camping tickets, and since we usually sell out prior to opening day, we strongly suggest getting your tickets early.
WHEN CAN I ARRIVE?
Camping at the festival begins at 7:00 AM Wednesday (the day before the Main Stage music begins). For those wishing to camp nearby earlier, there are options: (1) a group called "The Foxholers" will be camped at a farm about four miles from Grey Fox beginning a week prior to Grey Fox. For information visit the Foxhole Web Site or e-mail Scott. The Foxhole Pickin' Party is a completely separate event, not connected to Grey Fox. (2) For a list of commercial campgrounds nearby, contact Greene County Tourism.
GREY FOX OPENING DAY ARRIVAL PROCEDURES FOR CAMPERS
Camping gates will open at 7:00 AM Wednesday (the day before the music officially begins). Weather permitting, you'll be able to get your wristband and parking sticker, enter the camping area and start setting up at that time. Do not arrive before 7 am. You may not park along the road, so plan your arrival accordingly. Better yet, relax! Come a little later and avoid the traffic jam. Check out our What to Bring page. Don't forget your ticket confirmation number!
There will be 5 general areas for camping: 1) HIGH MEADOW CAMPING for tents without vehicles (see below); (2) QUIET CAMPING (low noise from 10pm to 8am) for tents, pop-ups and RVs not using their generators; (3) PICKERS PARADISE for those who wish to stay up late to pick and/or talk; (4) GENERATORVILLE for RVs that will be using their generators. Generatorville will be adjacent to Pickers Paradise and close to a shuttle bus stop; and (5) FAMILY CAMPING in the vicinity of the Family Stage and BGA Tent. This area will not be considered a "Quiet Camping Area" however it is intended for family-friendly behavior. Please camp in this area only if your family members are participating in cademy and/or family stage activities.
Upon arrival, we'll ask you which section you want to camp in and give you a vehicle sticker for that area.
NEW!!! 2013 CAMPGROUND VEHICLE PASS POLICY
2013 CAMPGROUND VEHICLE PASS FEE: To reduce the number of vehicles in the camping areas and to make more room for bluegrass loving human beings, there will be a parking fee of $20.00 per vehicle in 2013. Every vehicle entering the camping area must purchase a Campground Vehicle Pass. You may then either keep your vehicle at your campsite, or get a refund by parking in the Car Corral across the street for the duration of the festival.
FREE PARKING OPTION: (How to get your $20 vehicle fee refunded): Park in our car corral and we'll refund your money! Here's how it works: After you set up your campsite and move your vehicle (on the day you arrive) to the Car Corral, we'll refund your $20.00 in full on the spot. Your vehicle won't be able to re-enter the camping area until you pack up to leave. Plus you'll be entered in our Free Car Corral Raffle! Anyone using the car corral will be entered in drawings for cool prizes including tickets to next year's festival, CDs, tees and other good stuff!
ANY VEHICLE WITH A MOTOR (RVs, Tow Vehicles and Passenger Vehicles) must have a Campground Vehicle Pass. Motorcycles may park FREE at their campsite if they remain parked for the entire festival. Camping is not permitted in the Car Corral.
OFF-SITE DAY PARKING and SHUTTLE BUSES are free.
CAMPGROUND VEHICLE PASSES may be purchased in advance or at the gate.
HIGH MEADOW CAMPING
Is in the upper field, closest to the "Main (High Meadow) Stage." This area is for tents only. Vehicles are not allowed. On Wednesday all day and on Thursday until noon, you will be able to drive up to the turn-around to drop off your camping gear. Then you'll drive down and park in the CAR CORRAL. On Sunday you'll be able to drive back up to pick up your gear or you may take the shuttle bus to your car.
PICKERS PARADISE vs. QUIET CAMPING?
Grey Fox is famous for its late-night jamming. Depending on whether you pick late or turn in early, you can set up camp in our Pickers Paradise or Quiet Camping areas once you reach the festival. Quiet camping is quiet from 10:00 pm to 8:00 am Wednesday through Sunday. In 2010, in response to requests, we will have a few different locations for Quiet Camping. See map in your program book.
RV CAMPERS who will be using their generators will be directed to Generatorville. If you're not going to use your generator during the festival, we will accommodate as many RVs in the general camping area as possible. Camping at Grey Fox is "au natural". If you need hookups, please visit our Lodging page for links to nearby campgrounds or call Greene County Tourism at 1-800-355-CATS.
There will be volunteers in each section to help you find a spot and park efficiently to conserve as much room as possible. Please leave unnecessary and oversized items at home. And be mindful that others need space, too.
Campers who arrive on Wednesday may save a reasonable amount of space for friends coming later. Space may be saved until Thursday at 2:00 pm, when the music begins. At that time, others will begin filling in empty spaces. If you need help finding camping space, our Camping Crew will be on hand to assist you.
Got friends coming to camp with you? The excellent folks at the Milk Run (Convenience Store, Restaurant & Gas Station) located just one mile from the festival have offered their 16-acre parking lot for a waiting place. It's a great place to hook up with fellow campers so that you can enter together. The Milk Run is a gas station, convenience store and sit-down/take out restaurant that serves up tasty food. It is located at 3552 Route 145, East Durham, NY 12422, at the corner of Rts 145 and 27.

OTHER THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT
• No glass. Broken glass, barefoot children and hay farms just don't mix.
• No pets. Sorry, we do not allow pets at Grey Fox. Here is a list of Kennels in the area. Most kennels require up to date shots, so be sure to bring the required documentation with you -- and pet food.
• No open ground fires! Contained cook fires such as hibachis or propane cook stoves are okay. Be prepared! Bring a fire extinquisher and keep it handy.
• Use garbage and recycling bins as marked and please keep your campsite clean. Remember, we're on a farm that produces hay for dairy cows to munch. Dispose of anything that might make animals sick such as cigarette butts, instrument strings, plastic bags, paper, etc. Be sure your area is clean before leaving. Thank you.
• Bring your CAN TABS to the Information Booth! Our civic-minded web gurus, the Thirsty Lizards, will deliver your donated can tabs to a Shriners Hospital where they will help buy medical equipment for sick kids!
