Camping

Camping with the Love and Kindness community is a wonderful, freeing, expressive experience that can feel like an escape from the stressful reality of everyday life, but it’s important to be smart, safe, and respectful. Treat yourself and other attendees with love and kindness. Help us continue the Love and Kindness legacy of being a respectful, caring, kind and gentle community.

Camp near your friends, mark your property and your tent and take your valuables with you when leave. If you’re not camped near your friends, make friends with your neighbours!

Volunteers will patrol the campgrounds and are there to facilitate a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. It is not their mission to police your lifestyle or inhibit self-expression. Please assist them by following their instructions when asked to do so. In the event of an emergency, alert one of the organizers immediately.



Camping FAQ


Kinds of camping offered?

We offer 4 unique campgrounds at the festival.

There is a general camping area ('The Den') that is considered more quiet and suited for parents, small children and anyone needing to be closer to water & toilets.

Next we have 'The Swamp' - a naturally cool and shaded area tucked in behind The Den. Perfect spot to camp with friends and be close, but far enough away to enjoy your own space.

'The Berry Patch' is our 3rd camping area. Slightly more out in the open, this area is a hub for our trail system as there are 4 separate entrances to this spot - all leading to more trails or campgrounds. A little more out of the way than The Swamp, but still cental to all the fun!

Our last campground is 'The Hilltop' - generally the place all the party animals want to be! Facing the stage you won't miss a second of the music! Perched on top of a little hill you get a great view of the festival grounds, excellent privacy, and even direct access to our Trail system!

As you can see, we have something for everyone! If you have accessibility issues please email us at camping@loveandkindnessfestival.com to make any arrangements you may require.


Community kitchen?

There is public community kitchen with a propane stove and barbeque that individuals over 18 are allowed to use. This space contains utensils and dishwashing materials in order for you to engage in safe preparation of food for yourself. Please treat the community kitchen as your own and clean up any messes you make :)

Community Kitchen


Reserved spot?

We currently do not offer campsite reservations. First come, first served.


Off-site accommodations?

There are motels available in Kakabeka, Shabaqua, and Thunder Bay. You are welcome to access this option but you may miss out on the fun of camping! We highly recommend the Telstar Motel as it is owned and operated by some of our amazing crew!


Accessible camping?

Please contact camping@loveandkindnessfestival.com to make any arrangements.


Can I drive my gear up to the grounds?

No. In an effort to keep traffic off-site we are not allowing vehicles to drive up and drop off camping gear. There will be a dropoff location with shuttle service to assist you with bringing your stuff up to the festival property. Parking at the campground is not permitted this year.


Is there a shuttle service for gear?

Yes, this will be available at peak times.


Carpooling/Ride Sharing?

Love and Kindness Festival has setup a Facebook group for Ride Sharing HERE.
Please carpool if you can!


We advise you to

  • Stay hydrated! By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. Water taps are marked on your map.
  • Eat well. Enjoy well-balanced meals throughout the day.
  • Stay on marked trails – there could be poison ivy or sharp objects off the path
  • Be mindful and respect the boundaries of other campers
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. It can be hot and sunny one moment and cold and rainy the next!
  • If you are drinking alcohol, please do so in moderation.
  • Review the Leave No Trace policy (located below)

  • Tarp and rain gear
  • Cooking gear (pots, pans, camp stove)
  • Food and a cooler
  • Black garbage bags and clear recycling bags
