Stay all night and sleep with your friends at Renstock!

All campsites will go on sale at along with the event tickets on April 1st, 2021 (tenatively).

When the pubs and renpark 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.

Every person who wishes to stay on site will need to purchase a camping wristband which gives you access to shower facilities. If you are primitive camping your actual campsite is free. Premium campsites are an additional fee in addition to your wristband. See ticket website for pricing information.

Check-in Information


Friday Noon-6pm

Saturday 9am-5pm

Primitive Camping

Bring your own tent and bedding and you can set up just outside the Renfaire.  When you check in you will be directed to your campsite and will be able to drive up to it to drop off 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.

Quiet Camping Option

There will be two different zones for primitive camping: the quite area and the party area. You will be able to choose which side you would like to set up in upon your arrival. Choosing the mild area will not completely remove the chance that you will hear people laughing and playing a drum circle late into the night but you can rest assured they will be on the other side of the campground. And if it turns out your not sleepy you can always take your camp chair to go visit the dark side. Wild Camping is for ages 21 and older only as is the event.

Modern Camping

Sleepy Hollow has camping sites for Motor Homes/travel trailers with electric and water hookups. Please choose to camp and make your reservation early as electric/water sites will fill up quickly.

A note about Campfires…

The city of Des Moines has an 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.

A note about outside Food and Alchohol…

Sleepy Hollow has a liquor license and by Iowa law does not allow outside alcohol on the premises. We want our guests to have fun and enjoy themselves at the event and on the campground. It is not possible nor do we wish to police the coolers of our campground guests so we ask you to keep this law in mind as you pack for camping.

You can bring outside food and non-alcoholic beverages with you, but it must remain in the campground. We will not allow outside food or drink into the event itself out of respect for our hard-working vendors.
