Camping

Stay all night and sleep with your friends at Renstock!

When the pubs on faire grounds close that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. No need for a D.D. or calling a cab in garb, tent camping is absolutely free with your ticket. The Renstock Campgrounds are the perfect place to sleep it off, not to mention you won’t be far from the Bloody Mary’s, Breakfast, and Morning After Merchants waiting to send you off from 10 am-Noon on Sunday.

Check in Р You can come and set up your campsite as early at 9 am on Saturday, May 20th. However, the faire gates will not open until Noon.

Primitive Camping

Bring your own tent and bedding and you can set up just outside the Renfaire. A camping spot is free with your Renfaire After Dark Ticket and you wont be far from the action if you need a place to change, rest, or entertain. When you check in you will be directed to your campsite and will be able to drive up to it to drop of your equipment. Once set up you will need to return your vehicle to the parking lot. All the campsites are a short walk from the bridge which leads to the Renfaire Village.

Showers available on site, shower pass $5.00 per person.

A note about Campfires…
Acceptable fire-pit at Renfaire After Dark
Acceptable type of fire-pit at Renfaire After Dark as long as the grate is over the fire and it is lit with the intention of cooking.

The city of Des Moines has a open burn ban which the entire Sleepy Hollow site falls under so there are some important things to remember if you would like to have a fire at your campsite.

Any fire MUST be off the ground and have a grate covering it.

Any fire MUST be used for the purposes of cooking.

Any fire MUST be put out once it is no longer being used for cooking.

So, what does this mean for you? Well, if you want to have a fire you will need to bring an above ground fire-pit that has a grate on it at all times… and keep your marshmallows and hot-dogs handy for cooking. Charcoal grills that are off the ground are also acceptable as long as you intend to cook with them.
