Using recycled aluminum scrap to make cans takes 95% less energy than making it from raw materials.
There are a number of places to stay nearby, from camping to bed & breakfasts and hotels. For driving directions,
PLEASE NOTE: NO DOGS or PETS, except working service dogs, allowed on site! We cannot emphasize this enough: please leave your pets at home as we don't want them left in cars on a hot summer day.
There is free primitive
walk-in camping in the woods at Forget-Me-Not Farm (this area is close to the parking lot—no putting up tents next to your car). There will also be "Car and RV Camping" available in a field adjacent to the festival for $20 for the weekend (beginning on Friday evening for those who have reserved their camping space in advance). There will be port-a-potties and we plan to have solar-heated showers available for campers. There are no RV hook-ups. Working guide dogs permitted. No dogs or glass please.
Check out our Google Earth site map with festival overlay.
www.campvermont.com for a full range of camping options in the region and throughout the state, including State Parks and private campgrounds. Options range from primitive sites accessible only by boat, to campgrounds with lean-tos and cabins, to full-scale resorts.
The map below contains links to campgrounds with-in a reasonable driving distance of Tinmouth. The green nunbered circles are state camping areas and the red squares are commercial campgrounds. The links will open a new window. Just close the new window to return here. We wish to thank the
