For the first time, we are offering limited, primitive tent camping at Spokatopia. While camping normally isn’t allowed in Camp Sekani Park, a few dozen lucky festival goers will get the chance pitch their tents under the pines. Enjoy evening entertainment and the Bikes & Brews adult beverage garden without having to drive home at the end of it all.
Saturday Night Entertainment
We have plenty worth sticking around for Saturday night: Matt Mitchell (voted Spokane’s third-best singer/songwriter in the 2018 Inlander readers poll) will be playing from 7-9 p.m.; the adult beverage garden will be serving up beer and cider to benefit Evergreen East until 10 p.m.
Kids’ activities are planned throughout the evening. Grab a s’mores and snuggle in for presentation by award winning author Joseph Drumheller. Starting around 6:30 kids ages 5-8 can enjoy an interactive puppet show, and kids 9-adult will learn about the Wizard’s Mind while playing outdoor games.
What’s Included: Spokatopia camping comes with a simple place to pitch your tent, enough elbow room between you and the next site, free evening entertainment, and these other amenities:
- Access to porta-potties
- Use of a shared camp kitchen with a hand-washing station; some sustainable cups/plates/bowls/utensils; hot water for beverages/food preparation; picnic tables; etc. (Because of the extreme danger of urban wildfire, absolutely no fires or personal gas stoves of any kind are allowed.)
- Dinner options for purchase from CRATE food truck or BBQ options cooked up by Evergreen East volunteers.
- Free, light breakfast options Sunday morning, including coffee from REI and Mountain House add-water camping breakfast meals (hot water provided).
- Nearby special parking (campers will be allowed through the gate to drop off gear and park once daytime festival activities end at 6 p.m.).
- On-site security throughout the night.
What’s Not Included: Please bring everything you’ll need for a fun, safe, restful night’s sleep. If it’s not listed above, then it’s not provided, including these camping basics:
- Tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, or any other camping equipment.
- Table, chairs, rain cover.
- Fire pit or stove. (No fires or personal gas stoves are allowed at Camp Sekani; however, access to a communal camp kitchen is provided.)
- Parking next to your campsite. (Plan to walk several dozen to several hundred yards to your campsite from where you’ll park.)
- Electricity. (We will have small solar lights at each campsite for night lighting.)
- Running water, showers, flush toilets.
- Coolers or access to refrigeration.
Each of these primitive camp spots have a relatively flat and level spot for pitching a tent. Sites may have additional flat spots for a few chairs and a camp table, or trees where you can string up a hammock or two. (Think backpacking or primitive campground tent sites, not manicured KOA-style camping.)
Small Site: Like its name implies, these sites have a small, flat spot big enough for a two-person or 3-person backpacking tent. Cost: $25
Med/Large Site: A little more flat space for a larger 3-4-person dome tent and a few camp chairs. Cost: $35
Family Site: A larger flat spot for pitching larger family tents or more than one tent and some room to spread out a bit. Cost: $45
Group Site: We only have a couple of these larger road-side spaces that can fit 3 or possibly more 3-4-person dome tents, chairs, a camp table, etc. A good option for a crew of friends or a couple of families. Cost: $60
