Guests of Avalon Gathering are welcome to take advantage of our wilderness camping facilities. We have two separate camping areas, Hawthorn Camp and Blueberry Camp. Each is easily accessible on foot from the lane. Guests should unload their camping gear at the campsite entrance before removing their vehicle to the designated parking area. Parking along the lane is prohibited. The Common is reserved for vendors, performers and workshop space.
Just because it’s a medieval festival, there’s no need to take authenticity too far! Just a short walk away from the campsites we have a private, clean, enclosed wash cabin with a hot shower, hand basin and two flush toilets, plus a utility sink for food preparation & cleanup. We will also have a table available for diaper changes.The cabin has solar lighting for evening use. Thank you for keeping our grounds and woodland clean and sanitary!
We will provide a meal in the form of a BBQ feast/pot luck on the evening of Saturday, August 15. Please note that camping guests are responsible for their own meals at all other times. Please bring camp cooking gear, camp stove, and enough food for your stay. There are no grocery stores in Middle River; the closest is in Baddeck, 20 minutes’ drive from Willow Retreat. N.B.:If you are attending the feast, please help us out by bringing a pot luck item. You will also be responsible for your own beverages. We do NOT have a liquor licence, so BYOB!
