Any incidents requiring investigation by Games officials and, if necessary, local law enforcement agencies could result in expulsion from the camping area and Historic Rural Hill without refund of fees.
Pursuant to Mecklenburg County Ordinance, Rural Hill is now a tobacco-free zone. This includes both smoking, smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, vaporizers and other such devices. This includes the campground. This is a Mecklenburg County Law that Rural Hill must follow.

1. FIRES- County Ordinance: Any fire shall be continuously under the care and direction of a competent person over sixteen years of age from the time it is kindled until it is extinguished. OPEN CAMPFIRES are allowed in designated areas; campfires are not allowed in the wooded areas. The woods are full of Cedar trees and dry leaves that could easily ignite. If you are camping in a wooded area you must use a camp stove for cooking. Anyone who must use an open fire will have to camp in the open areas of the field. All camps with open fires must have a CONTAINER OF WATER or a FIRE EXTINGUISHER for fire suppression available at all times. For open fires please dig a shallow fire pit and plan to refill the hole before leaving. Historic Rural Hill is a working farm 365 days a year, if you line your campfire with rocks please move them out of the open field before you leave; rocks that lay unseen in the tall grass destroy hay rakes, bailers, blades, and couplings...
2. TRASH- There are ample trash receptacles located around the grounds. Please use them. The alternative is to pack your trash out with you. If you keep your trash in your camp, please keep it covered. You will be in a nature preserve, there are plenty of raccoons, opossums, skunks, and coyotes in the area that would love to dine on your leftovers and, in the process, scatter them over most of Historic Rural Hill Farm. Please practice leave no trace principles.
3. PORTABLE TOILETS-Portable toilets are conveniently located around the grounds.
4. WATER- There is an ample supply of water available. Hook up for RV’s and water access for the tent camping area. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE
5. ICE- Ice will be available on the festival grounds at $3.00 per 8 pound bag. You will be responsible for its transport from the festival grounds to the campground.

7. NOISE- We know this is a festival, but please, no instrument playing, loud radios, or televisions after 1 a.m.
