Camp the night at Elora’s breathtaking conservation area, the Elora Gorge.

The conservation area is famous for its 22-metre high cliffs, its tubing and its “Hole in the Rock” staircase. There’s also a splash pad for the kids.

You can reserve your campsite through the Grand River Conservation Area (GRCA) online or by calling 1.877.558.GRCA (4722).

There will be free shuttles running to and from the campground throughout the festival weekend. You may also choose to walk or ride your bike!
