Never brought kids but the website says you have to have the kids with you to get into the campsite

Hi there,

We go every year with the kids. You CANNOT enter Family camping without a child 12 or under. So either you keep one of the kids off school and bring them with you early to set up your tent, OR give everyone the day off ( thats what we do) and go together OR collect them after school and go.
Just remember if you have 4 kids and only take one with you early to set up the tent, your partner will not be allowed bring in 3 kids on her ticket as its 2 kids per adult ticket.
I hope that helps

Hi
We have 2 regular tickets but have decided to bring our son. Can we access the family campsite or do we need family tickets for that?
Arriving Saturday a.m.

You need family tickets yeah. But since the kid goes free anyway, if you've got some hustle you might be able to talk your way in. Try the box office as you're arriving, they might do something for you.

If not the back end of janis Joplin is usually pretty empty (ooh matron!) So should be an okay enough spot for kids. Long walk into the arena from there though
