General Camping Policies

  • Campers must wear camp access pass at all times.
  • All vehicles MUST have their camping pass on their windshield/dash for proper display. Vehicles without their pass properly displayed are at risk of tow at owner’s expense.
  • Within each campsite, you can park one steering  mechanism and one sleeping unit; a drive-able RV counts as both. Any additional vehicles will need to purchase a  parking pass to park in an alternate parking lot.
  • All roads in the campgrounds are fire lanes and must be kept clear at all times. If you exceed the boundaries of your campsite into these fire lanes, we will ask you to purchase an additional campsite and we may need to relocate you.
  • Your camper or RV must fit entirely in your campsite; if it does not fit, you must purchase multiple sites.
  • A 2:00 AM curfew is strictly enforced in all campgrounds.
  • No vending is allowed in the campground areas. Violators will be removed from the premises. No exceptions.
  • Secure your campsite – Bands In The Backyard is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen items.

Safety & Health Regulations

All RVs and vehicles in the campgrounds must have at least 10 feet of separation from each other including slide outs. Group camps (i.e. campers with a group of two or more campsites) MUST fit within the designated and assigned space purchased and can not be in any road way (including all tow vehicles).

If you choose to line the outside of your sites with RVs and create a common space in the center, you must allow for emergency access to the center area in the form of two 10- foot openings at opposite ends of your camp. This will be strictly enforced by campground security and local EMS.

All generators must be properly vented away from sleeping units, including tents and RV’s. Generators must be separated from tents by a minimum of 20 feet and protected from contact by fencing or other approved means. If you have an onboard generator, consider buying a generator exhaust kit to route the CO2 out of your own and surrounding campsites.

Please ensure that your RV is equipped with a working carbon-monoxide detector. The festival will have safety staff monitoring the placement of generators to ensure that it is safely exhausting harmful fumes away from enclosed sleeping areas. If not, then safety staff with require you to either move, shut down or properly vent your exhaust.

All camping is primitive. Port-o-potties, and garbage disposal are provided.

Security/Emergencies

Security is provided by Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department and Bands In The Backyard.

Citations will be issued for violations. Drinking age of 21+ will be enforced.

In the event of severe weather, a warning will be issued by patrol cars. Please follow instructions given. If you need to be notified for an emergency, your family must contact the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department.

Fill Up Your Pool/RV

There will be water trucks assigned to a certain area of the campground. Once you have the pool ready for water, you can flag them down to fill. The cost to fill a pool is approximately $125 per 1,000 gallons.

Curfew

A 2:00 AM curfew will be enforced in all campgrounds. Please respect your fellow campers.

Generators must be shut off at 2:00 AM.

Security officers have the authority to ask any person or groups of people who are abusing the noise curfew to leave the grounds without a refund. All state and local laws will be enforced by law enforcement personnel.

Campfires

No campfires or open flames will be allowed. If you are bringing a grill, all grills must be at least 12 inches above the ground or any vegetation. No solid fuel grills (i.e. charcoal, wood, etc.) are allowed. Propane grills only, charcoal grills are not permitted as they are a fire hazard.

Generators

All generators should be vented above the height of your camping unit using an exhaust kit especially if there are

people camping in tents near your generator. Please make sure your RV is equipped with a CO detector and if your neighbor is running a generator make sure they are properly venting it.

Large RVs

Our campsites are all 20 feet wide and either 30 or 40 feet deep depending on where you have purchased your site.

Your RV must fit in your designated space. If you have an RV longer than 30 or 40 feet you MUST purchase two sites back-to-back to pull through. All roads in the campgrounds are considered fire lanes and must be kept clear at all times.
