On-Site Camping

Camping Fee: $25 per adult (age 19 and over) for the weekend.
(this amount is included in an All-Festival Ticket with Camping)

Camping at the Old Songs Festival has been designed to meet Albany County Public Health Campground Code.


Camping locations will be assigned at random on a first-come, first-served basis. The camping area is divided into 30′ squares separated by a 10′ open space. Each 30′ square is numbered and divided in half. Expect to be sharing the square with another party. Your camping equipment must fit within half of the square. If your car won’t fit, move it to the car park. Remember, each camping site (non RV) is a 30′ x 30′ square.

Camping is available for purchasers of an All-Festival Ticket.
Includes any of the following nights: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

All camping squares are numbered and reserved. All camping is “dry” camping meaning there is no service available on individual squares.


Groups wishing to camp together should send in ticket orders in the same envelope. Each individual order in the group must be written separately.

In general, all camp locations are in close proximity to potable water and restrooms or porta johns.


To get access to electricity you must purchase an Electric Permit Tag ($20). Electric Permits are limited, distributed on a first come, first served basis, and only available at certain campsites, which may be different than your requested site.


Camping Rules: The open space between camping squares must remain unobstructed. No open fires or charcoal stoves. Propane stoves and lanterns are permitted, but must not be left unattended. Pets are NOT allowed.  Service animals are allowed.

There is No Dump Station
You must come to the festival with full water tanks and empty sewage and gray water tanks. You can dump at Thompson’s Lake State Campground, 6 1/2 miles on Route 156 for the $7 entrance fee, 7 am–9 pm.


Please Note: Space will be limited and we reserve the right to close on-site camping when we are full. We recommend early registration.

Thursday: 5:00 pm–9:00 pm
