Important Notice to all Campers!
WINSTOCK camping offers primitive sites only with no running water or electrical hookups. We do not allow open campfires (self-contained only - subject to the Fire Marshal Approval), and each campsite is limited to one sleeping unit. We provide fresh water, medical facilities, and one free vehicle-parking pass per campsite. No pets are allowed. Campground admission will be open from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Thursday, and starting at 9:30 a.m. on Friday. All campsites are reserved and will be held for you - so there is no rush to get to your site. This year again the Winsted Fire Department will be holding a Spaghetti Dinner Thursday starting at 5 p.m. and we will also have live music in the beer tent from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. For anyone interested in breakfast, we will be running a shuttle bus every half-hour starting at 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. The bus will stop at the Blue Note, downtown Winsted, also at Glenn’s SuperValu, and Subway.
When you enter the campgrounds, you will be issued garbage bags for cleanup. Please make sure your site is clean before you leave. Also, every effort was made to assign the campsites that you requested, but as the campgrounds filled up, the next best available site was given. Those of you that requested multiple sites together may notice that your campsite numbers are not in sequence. This is due to the fact that they were placed back-to-back to each other. Please visit the camping page to view a campground layout. For the benefit and safety of our campers Winstock will be providing 24-hour security at the campground entrance. Only authorized vehicles will be allowed to enter. To speed up the process of entering the campground, please make sure that everyone in your vehicle has purchased a concert ticket so that they can be banded at this time. Remember that everyone in the campgrounds must have a concert wristband. In the event of wet weather, some or all of our campsites may have to be moved. We will do the best we can to keep your sites together but it may not be possible, so please bear with us. If you have any questions regarding your campsite, please call our toll-free number 888-946-7865 and our operators will try to answer any of your questions. Also, please remember to bring a non-perishable food item or cash for the McLeod County Food Shelf. Thank you for your continued support and remember to renew your campsite for Winstock 2014 at the information tent.
