The Grey Fox Way

CAMPERS CREED

As a camper, I agree to these guidelines:

  • My campsite will not be more than 20×25 feet. Allowances for RVs.
  • I will save NO MORE THAN TWO CAMPSITES besides my own up to 2pm Thursday. After that, I will welcome new folks to camp there.
  • Park vehicles perpendicular to the roads to conserve space.
  • Park all unnecessary vehicles in the Car Corral and earn raffle tickets.
  • Use only camp stoves or grills for cooking. Make no ground fires. Leave no fire unattended. Have fire extinguisher handy.
  • Use only local firewood purchased within 50 miles of Oak Hill.
  • No luminaries! Landing on a tent could start a fire.
  • Keep my campsite clean. Use trash and recycling barrels properly.
  • Leave no debris on the ground. This is a working farm!
  • Use no amplifiers. Play no loud recorded music at my campsite.
  • Be super quiet from 10pm to 7am if camped in Quiet Camping.
  • Drive only when necessary to reduce my impact on the land.
  • Be considerate of my fellow campers. Follow the Golden Rule.
  • Be patient and tolerant and even perform random acts of kindness.
  • If I have a legitimate concern for anyone’s health or safety, I will seek assistance from Security or Medical personnel.

OTHER STUFF TO KNOW:

  • No glass. Broken glass, barefoot children and hay farms just don’t mix.
  • No pets. Sorry, we do not allow pets at Grey Fox. Call ahead. Most kennels require up to date shots, so be sure to bring documentation and food with you.

  • Use only locally purchased firewood!! Bringing in firewood from more than 50 miles away is strictly illegal in New York State. Moving firewood long distances can spread tree-killing pests like the emerald ash borer. Please purchase firewood in towns such as Greenville, Catskill, Cairo, Middleburgh or at The Milk Run on Rt 145 a mile from the site. To learn why using locally purchased firewood is so important, visit Don’tMoveFirewood.org
  • 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.
  • Field dress all smoking materials. No butts on the ground.
  • Smoking is prohibited in concert areas. If you wish to smoke, move beyond the outside edge of the crowd. This applies to all performance tents and food service areas.

SEATING & ETIQUETTE IN CONCERT AREAS

  • Seating in concert areas is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • In the High Meadow concert area only, you may leave your chair in place all weekend. Bring your own chairs or blankets. If you leave the concert area for a while, it’s the ‘Grey Fox Way’ to share your chair/blanket until you return.
  • Do not block the view of others. See map for high chair, low chair and blanket sections. A high chair is one that a basketball can fit under.
  • Sunbrellas may be set up along the perimeter of the High Meadow seating area. Staff can direct you.
  • We provide two large shade tents in the High Meadow Concert Area. Bring your own chairs.
  • For handicapped attendees, a tent is provided. Staff will assist.
  • The Creekside Stage is tented, with about 300 chairs provided.
  • For all other performance areas, please provide your own seating.
  • Keep your area litter-free. When you leave, take trash & recycling with you.
  • Last but not least, during any performance, please refrain from talking. Others are trying to hear and enjoy the music.

We wish you a wonderful festival experience.
