Camp Bisco

Camp Bisco
July 13-15, 2017Montage MountainScranton, PA
Countdown to Camp Bisco 2017



Camping is part of our name, it’s part of what Camp Bisco is all about.

For the comfort of all campers, we have a limited camping capacity so we encourage everyone to buy a Camping Bundle in advance. For more information on Camping Bundles, please CLICK HERE

All fans with RV Passes can arrive starting at 4pm on Wednesday July 12. Fans with w/ VIP Parking for Camping can arrive at 8pm. All other fans can arrive beginning at 10pm on Wednesday.

We’re located on Montage Mountain—so be prepared for hills, slopes and there’s a chance for mud if it rains.

There is no car side camping at Camp Bisco. There is wagon service to get you from the camping parking lot/gear drop off area to the campgrounds and ability to have a vehicle drop your gear off as close as possible to your campsite. We provide a large number of shuttles, all-terrain golf carts and staff in order to make it the easiest camping experience possible on Montage Mountain. There is continuous, expeditious valet service throughout the weekend but we still encourage Camp Bisco campers to pack light and bring something with wheels to transport gear in (think utility cart, not a radio flyer).

For safety reasons; please do not walk in the wagon paths, as this prevents fans from getting to their campsites. The camping area will have a variety of food and craft vendors. General store, ice, water stations, security and medical stations will also be available in the campground. Outdoor showers are available for free and hot showers for $5 at the Waterpark. Concert goers without a Camping Bundle will not be permitted in the camping area.


Roll our way, your way! It’s awesome to be able to experience Bisco on wheels with all the amenities of home! We only have a limited number of spaces, so get yours today!

RV parking is not located with general Camping. You must purchase an RV pass to be guaranteed a space for your RV. There are no hookups.

Note: Make sure you bring everything you need! If you have to leave for any reason, your RV will not be able to re-enter the Festival.

Very limited RV Passes are available for purchase for $300 per RV, oversized vehicle such as a bus, trailer, towed trailer, etc. – all vehicles that are larger than a 15-passenger van.

Each person in the RV will need to purchase a Camping Bundle. You will need to present your RV hang tag to be able to reach the RV parking area. RV’s are subject to search.

Wastewater removal will be available for a fee. No plug-ins will be available. No companion vehicles (including motorcycles) will be permitted in the RV Lot due to space limitations. Tow vehicles must also fit within your RV space. Amenities such as awnings, grills and furniture must fit within allotted space.

RV spaces will be sized according to RV Class A, B or C with maximum space being 20 x 45.

ADA Camping

Camp Bisco does provide accommodations for ADA Camping. Registration is required and a State issued accessibility permit must be presented to access this area. These spaces are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Please purchase 3-Day Festival + ADA Camping Bundle and then contact us to reserve your ADA camping space. To register, please contact: [email protected].

ADA Camping spaces are located on generally level ground in close proximity to walking paths, entrances and exits with easy access to shuttles. Accessible portable restrooms will also be available in the ADA Camping area. For those registering for an ADA camping pass, a single parking space will be provided directly adjacent to the ADA Campground; however, no RV’s will be permitted in this area. ADA accessible shuttles will be available to provide transportation from the ADA camping area to the Electric City & Above The Waves stages.


All cars & coolers will be searched for glass, pets, kegs, fireworks, contraband weapons, drugs, nitrous and illegal substances. Please do not bring anything that you know is not permitted or anything that could possibly be construed as a weapon (baseball bats, sharp tools, large knives, hatchets, hammers, etc.). Not only does it put an unnecessary strain on our staff and resources, but it also holds up the line for everybody behind you. This year we have increased the amount of staff & will be mailing wristbands in advance, but please remember that getting everyone in is a pretty monumental task, so let’s work together for the good of the whole and do what we each can to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
