Camping Tickets

Learn About Our Ticket Sales Process

While primarily a vanlife event, Peace Love & Vans welcomes all kinds of rigs! Below are the various ticketing options for both weekend camping passes and day passes. Please be sure to read about your ticket type and its associated campground before purchasing a ticket and feel free to reach out to our team with any questions!

All camping tickets are valid from Friday through Monday morning. See complete schedule for details.

Based on past gatherings, we expect all tickets to sell out prior to the event so we encourage you to get your tickets early!

Please be sure to read the information about the ticketing options before purchasing!

Important Note About Fires/Solo Stoves/Grills

Normally, open fires are NOT allowed in the open field where we create our van village campgrounds. However, the Pasco County Fire & Parks Departments have graciously authorized the use of  "solo stoves", BBQ grills, and similar items but you must have a CERTIFIED 2-A:10-B:C fire extinguisher.  Importantly, a brand-new fire extinguisher is NOT certified, you must have a professional company certify it (take to a fire extinguisher inspection company and have it inspected and tagged).  We will have arranged to have certified fire extinguishers for rent by purchasing the $50 add-on ticket or you can bring your own.  If you want to rent a certified fire extinguisher, you MUST purchase the add-on ticket at least 1 week before the event. We will be removing this option at that time so we can coordinate with the provider of the units. We will not have extra fire extinguishers for rent at the event.  The Fire Department will be there issuing citations to anyone who has an open fire without a certified 2-A:10-B:C fire extinguisher. Note, that this only pertains to open flames OUTSIDE of your rig. A cooktop, etc. inside your rig does not require a certified fire extinguisher.  Any propane device that produces an open flame (outside the vehicle) is not permitted without a CERTIFIED 2-A:10-B:C fire extinguisher.  Open flames inside the vehicle are permitted without a CERTIFIED 2-A:10-B:C fire extinguisher, (but it is good practice to have a fire extinguisher in your rig at all times.) We will have a few campfires each evening in the Leafy Lounge and you can also bring your own "solo stove" or BBQ grill to the lounge WITHOUT the need for a certified fire extinguisher.

Weekend Camping Pass
Main Groovy Grove Campground – WITHOUT Hookups – $159

Most campers prefer to camp in our main, Groovy Grove campground which is located in a grassy field with some trees so you may or may not have shade. Campers are parked in rows by our usher team that forms streets in our “utopian” van village! These are not pre-assigned spots. If you would like to park near/next to friends, we recommend that you meet up outside of the park and drive in together so that you end up being parked next to each other. See map for location.

If you have a rig that is 25′ or longer (any rig combination that is over 25′ footprint including accessories, bike racks, etc.), you must choose from the following other choices below: “Connected Camp with Hookups”, “Big Rig Park” or the “RV Forest with Hookups”.  There are no water or power hookups in this campground. Trailers of any kind are not permitted in this campground and yes, this includes towed vehicles – anything that is not part of the main vehicle.

Importantly, this is the only campground where you can opt into the OpenVan tours and DIY Van Build contest which you can read more about on the schedule page.

Weekend Camping Pass
Chillville Campground – WITHOUT Hookups – $199

Chilleville (formerly Big Rig Park) is located on the northern edge of the village site. It’s just far enough away from the main activities that it’s a little more quiet and chill. Chillville campground also allows rigs over 25 feet long or rigs with towed items. If you have a big rig (well, compared to a van) that is over 25 feet and doesn’t need hookups, this is a great option for you.  (FYI You don’t need a big rig to camp here).  Just like the main, Groovy Grove campground, campers in Chillville campground will be parked in rows in a grassy field located across Big Ma Road from the Groovy Grove Campground. You will not be assigned specific sites.  If you would like to park near/next to friends, we recommend that you meet up outside of the park and drive in together so that you end up being parked next to each other. There are no water or power hookups in this campground.  Trailers/towed vehicles are permitted in this campground as long as your vehicle and trailer do not exceed 50 feet combined. This campground is NOT limited to larger rigs, vans and smaller rigs are also welcome! See map for location.

Weekend Camping Pass (up to 2x rigs)
RV Forest – WITH Hookups – $499

These premium campsites are tucked away into the trees with lots of shade. Each site is large enough for 2x smaller rigs such as a camper van and therefore, you’re allowed up to 2x small campers per site along with 2x other cars or trucks, 2x pets and up to 4x people (additional attendee tickets also available below). We encourage you to share these campsites with a friend. As a result, these RV Forest camping tickets can be scanned twice at the welcome station. Other camping tickets can only be used/scanned once. There is a single water hookup that can be shared if you bring a hose bib splitter and both a 30 amp and 15 amp electrical connection. This means that if you have 2x small rigs, you can use the 30 amp service for one and the 15 amp for the other. In addition, RV Forest campers have access to a bathroom with showers in the campground. This campground is also about 100 yards away from all the action and separated by a small forest so it’s quieter, but a little more remote.  See map for location. You will be assigned a designated campsite after booking (please specify vehicle length in order notes on checkout).   These tickets are extremely limited and will sell out quickly!

We’re Selling Camping Tickets in Batches!

One of our most important goals for Peace Love & Vans is to bring together our community of like-minded folks in a fun way that doesn’t feel too big and promotes real connections. Based on our first few years of experience, we have space for just over 500 rigs in our utopian van village without it being too crowded. However, since this is such a unique (and epic) gathering, and the word is getting out, we’ve had the very “good problem” of selling out of camping tickets quite early.

While selling out is a great signal how awesome the event is, it’s not so great for giving people time to even find out about the event! Thus, we put our rusty thinking caps on and came up with a new plan to release tickets in batches so both our old friends and some new friends can join us.

Each batch will have a limited number of tickets available so that future batches aren’t left in the cold (like north of Florida in the wintertime). However, the RV Forest and Connect Camp tickets will likely be sold out in the first two batches because of how few tickets there are for those but there are far more tickets for the Groovy Grove, Birds of a Feather and Chillville campgrounds.

Note, you are limited to 1x camping ticket purchase during the presale batches. However, even though day pass ticketing doesn’t being for the general public until July 18th, you may add day pass tickets to your order during the presale windows.

During this batch, our partners will share their unique presale passwords with their audience.
