Dear Car Campers, Lot Car Campers, and Riverside Car Campers,
With the 10th annual Mountain Jam only a few days away, we wanted send you a warm welcome and some important information about your upcoming weekend with us!
When & Where to Enter
The festival opens at 9am on Thursday and Friday for Campers. The Box Office closes at 2am on Thursday and 1am Friday nights. If you arrive later than that on either night, you will have to wait outside of the venue until the following morning.
Car Camping Entrance is at the intersection of Route 214 and Ski Bowl Road (click here to see it on Google Maps and to get directions). When approaching from the east (driving west on Route 23A), make a LEFT on Route 214 and then a RIGHT on Ski Bowl Road. DO NOT continue west on Route 23A past Route 214 towards the main Hunter Mountain Entrance (at Klein Avenue). You will be turned around and directed back.
Cars will queue up on Ski Bowl Road facing west before entering the Toll Booth Box Office / Security Check.
Your Travel Pass
In order to ensure that you are directed to the appropriate location, please download, print, and display your Travel Pass from the following link: http://mountainjam.com/files/2014/05/travel3river.pdf
**Note: if you or someone in your vehicle receives a Travel Pass with a higher number, please display that one.
These Travel Passes are NOT parking passes and will not gain you access to any parking areas. They just allow our traffic staff to direct you in the correct direction!
Security Check / Getting Your Tickets or Wristbands
Whether you already have your tickets, need to pick them up at Will Call, or need to purchase them, you will continue down the queue on Ski Bowl Road until you reach the intersection of Ski Bowl Road and Klein Avenue, at which point you will be directed into our Toll Booth Box Office and Security Check.
This is where your car will be searched and you will exchange your tickets (or Print Passes) for wristbands. If anyone in your car does not have a ticket yet, this is the place for them to buy one!
Parking Your Car and Getting Your Campsite
Car Camping Sites are 10′ x 30′ and will be assigned as you arrive with the areas closest to the main concert field being assigned first. You will NOT be allowed to choose your own site. Cars will be assigned a site in the order that they arrive. That means that if you want your site next to a friend’s, you must plan to arrive and pull in at the same time (one in front of another). Saving sites for friends will not be allowed.
Some Stuff To Remember About Car Camping
- All Car Camping Sites (10′ x 30′) must have exactly one vehicle on them at all times (no more, and no fewer).
- Running your car engine is not permitted.
- If camping in the Riverside Car Camping area, be aware that there is absolutely NO SWIMMING ALLOWED in the Schoharie Creek which is next to Riverside car camping area.
- There are some areas with hard ground or gravel. We advise that you bring metal stakes for your tents.
REALLY IMPORTANT: Cars will NOT be allowed to drive in and drive out of the Car Camping Areas! We repeat: Cars will NOT be allowed to drive in and drive out of the Car Camping Areas! If you need to drive out before 3pm on Sunday please find a Security Guard the Car Camping Area and be advised that you will NOT be allowed to re-enter with your car.
