Up there in them Hocking Hills of Ohio is the 5th annual Duck Creek Log Jam for 2016 on Memorial Day Weekend. Mr. Kyle and his crew do some truly great things for string bands and Bluegrass and Roots music up there in Ohio and this festival is a prime example. It’s known for it’s family friendly atmosphere in a stripped down non corporate setting and you will not pay 5 bucks for a bottle of water!
There are two camping areas for you, and honestly many other festivals are following suit in this fashion. One is family area where you are required to be quiet after the music stops and the party down zone where you CAN continue to party and pick all night long. Now HERE there is also what they call Dispersed Camping which means you can camp out in the woods instead of an open area, and the staff can help you find a really cool spot! AND NEW this year is their fully direct already set up facilities where all you do is pay and show up and it’s ALL SET UP for you, you can get more info on that HERE.
There is a 10 dollar parking fee due when you arrive but the venue is really spacious and nice, and there are no showers at this festival and the vendor area is quite large. You cannot have campfires just anywhere instead they have community fires for you, and this is a HUGE campground so I’m assuming there is more than one fire going.
There’s a festival map with complete layout of all three stages and all camping areas. Before I discuss the lineup and any hotels I research for this area I should point out that there are no pets allowed here and no golf carts either.
