Camping is a great part of the Starbelly Jam experience!

Camping with your Starbelly Music Festival community is a wonderful,
freeing, expressive experience that often feels like an escape from reality,
but it’s important to keep your wits about you. Be good to yourself and to
each other. Continue the Starbelly Jam legacy of being respectful, caring,
kind and gentle with your camping community.
Camp near your friends, mark your property and your tent and take your valuables with you when leaving. If you’re not camped near your friends, make friends with your neighbors!


Event Staff and Professional Security patrol the campgrounds and are
there to facilitate a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. It is not
their mission to police your lifestyle or inhibit self-expression. Please assist
them by following their instructions when asked to do so. If you have any
safety or security concerns go to either campground entrance where you
will find the Festival Campground Managers and/or Professional Security.
In the event of an emergency, call 911 first.

Camping Options

Starbelly Jam Music Festival operates a simple campground next to our
festival site – We offer a General Camping area and a Family Zone.
Please remember there are hundreds of campers through the weekend and
we cannot guarantee total quiet even in the Family Zone. Consider bringing
earplugs. An inexpensive solution to help get a full night’s rest.
There are a number of other campgrounds nearby that have limited space
so be sure to make reservations early. Check out the Kootenay Lake
Chamber of Commerce website (kootenaylake.bc.ca ) for a full list of local

General Info


Minors (17 years and younger) must be accompanied by an adult, to a limit
of four minors per adult. If you are a guardian of an underage camper, you
need to be with them in order for them to receive their campground
wristband. And remember: You’re responsible for them for the duration of
the Festival.

Un-serviced Sites

The Family Zone and General Festival Area have porta-potties, recycling &
waste centers. There is no potable water in the campground. Potable water
is available at the festival site but you may want to consider bringing extra. No fires are
permitted anywhere in the campground.


RVs are only permitted in the General Festival Campground, however all
RVs in the Festival Campground must have an RV Vehicle Ticket, as space
for RVs is limited there.

No Reservations

Campsites cannot be reserved. If you want to camp with a group of friends,
you need to arrive together to ensure you get a spot together.

Festival Sustainability

Starbelly Jam is committed to reducing the environmental impact of
our event. This includes food vendors using bio-degradable plates, bowls,
cups, and cutlery. The event hosts comprehensive waste stations where
compost, recycling, returnables, and ‘real’ garbage are separated. Please
help us reduce our waste by using only biodegradable materials for your
food and snacks. If you bring snack-wrappers or containers that will go to
the garbage, consider taking it home with you.
