Legends Valley Camping FAQ’S

Legends Valley Music Festival campers will have a choice of campgrounds in the newly-constructed Laketown Ranch outdoor festival site offering energetic party locations, quiet camping and oversized sites for RV’s and campers.
Laketown Ranch at Cowichan Lake is the new jewel of Vancouver Island. The 172 acre event site will provide the ultimate festival experience with a viewing area for over 10,000+ happy guests. There are hundreds of landscaped campsites with new washroom and shower facilities available at great rates.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:

Easy! Just measure it! Grab that measuring tape and sort out how much room you need from tip to tail. If your rig fits the size of the site you purchased – great! All we ask is that this is done before you enter the festival grounds. Our campground is sold out, so we don’t have the ability to move you to a different site if your rig doesn’t fit.

Nope! Our rule is one steering wheel, one campsite. Simple.

UPON ARRIVAL:

No stress, we’ve got you covered! There are two important things you need: your weekend pass bar code and your camping pass barcode.  Have those? Perfect, follow us: Whether you’re coming from the North or South of the festival grounds, there will loads of signage directing you to Laketown Ranch. You cannot miss us! As you get closer, you will see Traffic Officials and the RCMP directing you to join the lineup. Please be nice to them! Please DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE at any time (especially on the highway).  Check the Camping access times below and there’s no need to arrive too early, we’ve got a spot waiting for you. Arriving too early to line up on the highway may result in ticketing or towing as this is a significant safety concern for RCMP.

Early Camping Check-In begins Wednesday, August 23 at 5:00pm through until 9:00pm. Camping Check-In will reopen on Thursday, August 24 at 12:00pm to 9:00pm and on Friday August 25 at 12pm to 5pm.

DO NOT ARRIVE AT 5:00 am… you will be waiting a long time and traffic enforcement will ask you to move along!

If everyone is prepared, we can process 6 campers at a time and move 150 campers per hour, but when 500 campers show up before we open, then a lineup develops. All sites are good sites, and you never know where you’ll meet your new best friends, so there is no need to show up early. The last camper in might have the most fun with their new best friends in the campsite beside them.

Because this is the most efficient way! We do the best with what we’ve got!

Our staff work hard to process you and your vehicle as quickly as possible. There is only one way in and one way out of Laketown Ranch. To speed up the process please DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE and have all your paperwork ready… this is critical. If you have questions, save them, we want to get you in your site. After you are settled, come back and visit us in ticketing and we’ll take care of all your festival questions

If you have rented an RV or trailer from a company or individual that needs to be delivered on site – not to worry! We ask that you plan ahead and please arrive with the unit onsite. If you absolutely cannot facilitate the drop-off, please send your credentials, including the RV pass with the driver. Please instruct the driver that when they arrive at the Front Gate, our staff will check the credentials of the vehicle and the unit will be directed to park in the appropriate campsite that has been pre-purchased by you. Once parked, the driver can exit through the Front Gate and return the remaining credentials to you. You must have your credentials (minus your RV sticker) with you in order to gain entry.

YES, but please try to avoid leaving during load in times as it causes congestion.

To guarantee that you and your friends will camp together, please arrive together. Our friendly staff with help you to the best of their ability, but we cannot always secure spots. So plan ahead please!

Be a good friend, and allow them to cram as much camping gear into your car or camping unit. If your friends are taking the shuttle or are being dropped off, don’t make them walk their gear in. Plan ahead! Plan ahead! Plan Ahead! Once they arrive and check in at ticketing to get their wristband they will be directed to the camping area that was pre-purchased by you.

 

We have a new drop off location, located at the entrance to the grounds. Parking Staff will allow a quick drop off only. No parking will be permitted. Campers will be directed to the Ticket Booth to check in. Please have your credentials ready! Once you are good to go, you will walk to your campsite. Don’t forget to send the bulk of your gear with friends… Plan ahead! Plan ahead! Plan Ahead! So you don’t have to pack it all in! There are no drop-offs in the campground this year to decrease congestion and increase the awesome.

Please pack reusable containers, extra garbage bags and plan on using the proper waste and recycling receptacles provided! We are on a mission to reduce garbage and we would love your help with this! Thank you! Hint: Clean campsites will be rewarded!

Garbage and recycling stations will be located throughout the campsites. We will not be doing curbside pick-up . Please walk your garbage and recyclables to the pick-up locations beside the porta potties. Show you care!

 

There will likely be a complete Fire Ban in place at this time of year. Please respect the posted rules on site. This is for everyone’s safety! This means no open flame or propane fire pits. BBQ’s/Cooking units must be 4 feet off the ground and it’s a good idea to pack a fire extinguisher.

Before you leave, look around, gather up any garbage and recyclables, take it to the provided bins and encourage your neighbor to do the same.
The majority of the festival is trying to leave, so please be respectful of exit wait times.
