vendor fee, beyond the site fee which all pay, although donations

– We have
plenty of camping space for all. However, please contact John
Blackburn through Facebook or email moc.niarbniap@gnipmacpm (put
Maypole Camping in the subject line) for RV and large group
reservations. Period encampments will be given space closer to the
list field and other activities in an effort to enhance the
medieval appearance and feel of the event. Tent camping space will
be assigned based on the number of people camping with the group,
approximately 225 sq. ft. per person. Please do not use any
tent spikes over 10” in length so we don’t
inadvertently pierce their irrigation system. There are RV parking
spots with water and electric hook-ups free of charge.
Garbage cans will be available, but pack out what you can, please.
The site does NOT allow for our four legged friends, please make
arrangements to leave them at home.
The site is on the west end of the Clallam
County Fairgrounds. Gas and charcoal fires are preferred and all
fires must be at least 18” off the ground. The site also has
a public restroom and working showers, so bring plenty of quarters!
Please leave the premises in like or better condition so we can
come back next year.
Please be aware this public
demo will be held on a county property, we would like to remind
everyone that the site is DISCREETLY damp. We encourage the use of
period containers. The public is not blocked from entering the
camping area, so they may wander through. Be aware of what personal
belongings you have on display.
