Shake out the tents, spiff up the trailer, dust off the camp-chairs and pack the decorations — we have onsite camping this year!! This is one of the most frequent wishes from past Susquehanna Folk Festivals, and a tradition that festival-goers treasure.

HOURS: Camping gate opens at 4pm Friday. Campers must depart by 10pm Sunday.

Camping amenities at the York Expo Center include
  • electric, water and sewer hookups
  • security patrols
  • real bathrooms
  • showers!!

Campsites must be reserved in advance. Campsite fees are for two nights, one vehicle, and range from $76 (tent only) to $106 (full RV hookup).

An All-Festival wristband is required for each person staying at your campsite.
