Elk Ridge Campground RV Sites
Located next door to Jim Sprick Park, Elk Ridge Campground offers dry hookup RV sites with on-site restrooms and showers.

Can I bring my dog, cat, lizard, etc?
No. Pets are not permitted at the park or on festival grounds.

Can I have a fire pit or BBQ at my campsite?
No open flame fires of any kind are permitted. Propane fires and cook stoves are okay.
Do you accept Credit Cards?
Due to limited internet access at the park, the festival and most vendors accept CASH ONLY! There is no ATM on-site.

Yes. The event is 21 and over on Friday and Saturday. Sunday is open to all ages and we encourage you to have your family and kiddos come join you. Kids under 12 are FREE!

Tent camping is first come, first served. For those who purchase a RV/Car Camping pass, we will do our best to get you parked alongside your family or friends.
Do RV sites have hook-ups?
No. RV sites at Jim Sprick Park do not have hook-ups. Sites at neighboring Elk Ridge Campground do offer dry hook-ups and are available for $225 for the weekend. You can purchase all RV sites HERE.
What items are NOT allowed within festival grounds?
Alcohol, drugs, weapons and open containers (excluding reusable water bottles) will not be allowed beyond the security checkpoint into the festival grounds.
Beer, wine, cider and food will be sold in designated areas within the festival grounds. And, in an effort to reduce plastic consumption, Chinook Fest has partnered with Liberty Bottleworks to offer customized Chinook Fest aluminum water bottles, and has also partnered with Pingrey Ford to offer reusable cups that will be given out at the scrip table in the beer garden. Reusable water bottles and cups are the only containers that will be allowed through the festival gates and can be refilled at the water refill station or in the beer garden, respectfully.
Is there cell phone service at the venue?
Most likely no. A few carriers will work occasionally, but expect to be without for the weekend. We still encourage you to bring your camera phones and be ready to Facebook, Tweet and Instagram your pictures and experiences when you get back to the real world! #chinookfest
There will be a physical land line for use in emergency situations only.
Are there showers?
Yes. The park has two coin operated showers which cost $2 for a few minutes. Bring your quarters!
