Scenic Overlook Dry Camping FAQs
Area 03 is located just Northwest of Southern Gap Outdoor Adventures in an existing grass field. These 75 dry camping sites are located in a grass field just east of the access road and west of our vendor row. These sites will not be numbered. Simply show up and park anywhere in the area. These spots are great for large groups looking to “circle the wagons” or for a smaller set-up that requires less space. We are going to sell around 75 passes for this area and allow people to park where they want on a first come first serve basis. These spots will provide the best seat in the house to all the mini-games, vendor row activities, and mud bog while providing a price point to fit any budget.
Each spot is $60.
Each pass is good for (5) five days and (4) four nights starting Wednesday July 28th and Ending Sunday August 1st.
Camping passes can be pre-purchased through our website by using the link on this page. If spots do not sell out prior to the event passes can be purchased at the entry gate when you arrive, but they typically do sell out fast!
No. Camping passes and wristbands are sold separately. We did this to keep the cost as cheap as possible and wanted to make sure each participant only had to purchase what they needed.

This way if you are out riding and decide to checkout out the event simply pull out your phone, get your e-ticket scanned, receive a wristband, and head on in.

There are no additional charges for extra vehicles or trailers, however, all vehicles and equipment must fit within your reserved space. If you are unable to fit within your space we do have overflow parking available, however, this will come with a small charge each day. If you can’t make everything fit swing by the main gate and our security team would be happy to point you in the right direction. Even though there is no charge for extra vehicles in your camping space please be aware that everyone will need a wristband to get through the gate.
All camping sites can be accessed off of Southern Gap Road. Once you arrive on-site swing by one of our two gates to pick up your wristbands and camping passes.

No. These are dry camping sites located in a parking lot You will need to bring in your own water. We recommend filling your tanks prior to arriving on-site. Gray water is not permitted to be dumped in the parking lot or camping areas during the event. If you need your tanks dumped or filled during the event please call SEPTIC INC. at (276) 597-7195 or (276) 244-0263. They will be camped on-site and would be happy to service your trailer for a small fee.
Campfires are allowed in this area. If you would like to have a campfire, participants are asked to bring in their own wood and an above-ground fire ring if possible. If you don’t have one having a fire directly on the ground is acceptable: however, please set-up your fire away from any tall grass to minimize the risk of starting a property fire. If you do not have the proper equipment everyone is more than welcome to join us in the center of our vendor row. We will have a large bonfire going all weekend. We ask participants not to throw cans and garbage into the campfire.
This area will have access to a 20-yard dumpster located near our vendor row in addition to dumpsters located throughout the campground. We ask that all participants help keep the camping area clean by using our dumpsters or by packing out their own garbage when they leave.
This area will have access to portable restrooms located throughout the event area. Showers are NOT available in this area.
There is NO fuel available for sale on-site during the event, however, there is fuel available at the local gas stations located in Grundy. Grundy is located just a short 5 min car ride from the site or a 30 min UTV ride from the site. We recommend filling up before you show up. Extra gas cans are always a good option to minimize trips to town.
This area does have a campground host; in addition this area will be monitored throughout the day by our UTV TAKEOVER security team with assistance from our volunteers and Southern Gap Staff Members.
