OK - you have probably reviewed the world class talent, perhaps even checked out the stunning, family friendly venue and the significant other is looking to you for something special this summer. Perfect. Here is how to bring smiles all around.

Need a place to stay?
If you have a tent and are in to it, toss it in the car and head for the lake. We are just 8 km (5 mi) North of Hwy 401 at Kingston Exit #613 and we have plenty of room. What about your trailer or RV? No problem there either. We have a limited number of fully serviced sites as well. Just make sure you reserve your spot early.
If you are from out of town and camping is not your thing, no worries there either. Head to the accommodations page and you will find more than two dozen suggestions geared to any budget.
Need a ride?
OK - you have a backpack but no way to get here. We have that covered too. Click on this RideShare link, enter the event code CGF2016 and you can probably arrange a lift with somebody heading out to the Festival. The service is free. What you arrange with the driver is up to you.
PLEASE NOTE: The following interesting query just arrived in our mailbox.
I would like to order tickets including camping and reserve a campsite(s). We have 4 people (2 tents) confirmed and another possible 4 people (3 tents) who have expressed interest but continue to waffle.
Can I get 2 campsites if I place orders for the 4 people confirmed? Is it possible to get adjacent campsites? Would 2 campsites be enough for up to 5 (2 man) tents if they decide last minute?
No problem !
We don't reserve specific sites as such, rather we direct people to specific areas that will be conducive to sleeping. Want to jam until 4:00 am? Okay this tenting area is the one for you! Want to get horizontal on that new air mattress you just picked up at Cdn Tire? Okay...right this way :)
"Would 2 campsites be enough for up to 5 (2 man) tents if they decide last minute?" - Yes. Given that everyone is getting directed and settled as they arrive, 'last minute' is not an issue. See ya at the lake

So there you have it - check, check and check... three days of some of the best guitar music in the world, acres of nature to explore, a sandy beach and some of the nicest friendliest folks you will ever meet. Go ahead - you certainly deserve the best and it does not get any easier or more convenient. See you at the lake!
