Camping is included with your TUC entry for those wanting to camp in a tent or vehicle. To camp in your vehicle simply pull into the front parking lot of the Humboldt County Fairgrounds ( 1250 5th St. , Ferndale , CA ) and make yourself at home. For tent camping simply pitch your tent on any of the grass areas within the fairgrounds. There are bathrooms and showers near the front of the fairgrounds and a much newer (and nicer) facility within the fairgrounds about 100 yards beyond Bellotti Hall. There’s plenty of room for everyone; in all the years we’ve offered free camping we’ve never come close to filling up. So, no reservations are needed.

There’s also an RV campground with full hook-ups (water, sewer, electricity) for only $25 a night. There are 100 sites available and again, we’ve never come close to filling up. But reservations can be made by calling (707) 786-9511.
