RAGTIME CARNIVAL - UPDATED 3.28.14

Update 3.28.14 - **CAMPING FAQ UPDATE!** Here are a few questions from some Ragtimers that have popped up re. the slight shift in Camping Policy coming from Pocahontas State Park.  This will benefit everyone that wants to camp, and only means that all campsites made available will have power, water hookups. We've re-gilded this information below under the official "Camping News" sections, but here it is, Top Shelf:

A BRIEF HISTORY:  There are more public camping areas available now because the park has decided to release camp sites that were going to be reserved for non-Ragtime Carnival patrons, making all camp-sites for Ragtime Carnival goers. 

There are 56 campsites that we have reserved.  Each site area can hold up to 6 people, and each of the site areas has a fire pit for camping/gazing.  So the park can take up to 340-350 people each night.  (This would require some people who many not know each other to be in the same campsite, but the campground will work with you to maneuver people as best as possible to accomodate people who want to camp together.  This is similar to other festivals with structured camping, where you will be placed in the order you come in, so if you have a group you want to meet up with for camping, please keep this in mind! 

To reiterate, The Primitive Camping area only existed because the Park was limiting the amount of public sites for Ragtime Carnival in order to make room for outside travelers to the park (ie. the Griswolds).  Sorry folks, the park is closed to Ragtimers Only...the moose oustide should've told ya...

Anyone who purchased camping is simply being shifted to the Public camping areas:

*If you reserved an RV spot, that spot is still reserved

*If you reserved a spot in the Public camping, that is still reserved

*If you reserved a spot in the Primitive area, those reservations are moving into the Public camping areas
We paid for a public campsite AND non-camping tickets, does this new info change anything for us?
No. If you have reserved a public campsite, and if you have tickets for the Festival, you should be good to go.
"Same question...I reserved a RV spot for my Airstream the day the event was announced...will it still be honored?”
Yes.  If you reserved an RV spot, it will be honored.
When we made our reservation for an electric/water camp site weeks ago, it was almost full. There was only 3-4 sites left for that weekend. How are they going to accommodate all the extra people?  How will people who picked a "primitive" site be accommodated in the regular sites w/o stepping on someone else's reservation?”
This is because the park only allotted a certain amount of Public camping spots for Ragtimers.  They have since closed the camping to the public and opened up previously-held campsites to accommodate more Ragtimers.  If you had already purchased a Public site, then you’re still good to go.

"so we can have grills now too?”
All Public campsites have designated fire pits for cooking for 6.  If you're party is less than 6, there may be other campers in that camping area.
Update 3.25.14 - **CAMPING UPDATE!**  Some great news for campers...Pocahantas State Park has altered the deal which will allow us to rent ALL the Public Park Camping Spaces for both nights, so there will only be Ragtime Carnival guests!  Take that outside world.  This means we will shift away from the "primitive" camping areas over to the Park campsites that have water hookups, electrical, parking and showers.  This is for tent camping (the "RVs Only" section is sold out).  Prices do not change, so if you have a 'primitive' site purchased, you will simply be redirected to the regular park camping area.  This means better accomodations and more camping sites for Ragtimers.  There is a path connecting to the amphitheater, and we will have a shuttle that runs back and forth.  GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

Update 3.25.15 - **HOTEL LODGING INFO!**  We've gathered up some alternate lodging for Ragtimers who want to come in for the weekend but prefer not to camp.  Below are some hotels to check out and the distances from Pocahontas:

CAMPING

 We are now renting all Public Camping inside the state park for the weekend and doing away with the Primitive campsites that were initially offered!  ("Woah, that is in tents!")  This means water and power hookups for everyone, as well as showers and easier access to bathrooms.  Repeat, the entire Park's camping is reserved for Ragtime Carnival!    Here is how it works:

 1.    Primitive Camping -

 2.   Public Camping - all camping sites are reserved for Ragtime Carnival.  There are 56 campsites that we have reserved.  Each site area can hold up to 6 people, and each of the site areas has a fire pit for camping/gazing.  So we can take up to 340-350 people each night.  (This would require some people who many not know each other to be in the same campsite, but the campground will work with you to maneuver people as best as possible to accomodate people who want to camp together.  This is similar to other festivals with structured camping, where you will be placed in the order you come in, so if you have a group you want to meet up with for camping, please keep this in mind! 

  • This is the public section of Pocahontas
  • These spots can be reserved through Pocahontas State Park
