Can I bring my pet?

The simple answer to this is NO. Pets of any kind are not a good idea at an event of this nature. It’s not really fair to them or your fellow patrons of the event. They either get left behind at your campground, in the car or roam freely causing a hazard to themselves and others at the event. No animals will be permitted in the campgrounds and you will be turned away if one is in your car when you arrive. Please leave them at home, with a friend or in the kennel during your visit with us.

How can I camp responsibly?

When you are planning your trip to Wanee, forget about disposable cutlery, cups, bottles and plates! One of the best ways you can reduce your impact is to bring reusable items. Don’t forget soap, a scrubber or rag and a washing station. Try using a bucket or big soup pot for dirty dishes and bring reusable food containers for storage. PLASTIC CUPS AREN’T CURRENTLY RECYCLABLE IN THIS AREA.

Bring a reusable water bottle; you can bring empty water bottles into the venue, saving LOTS of plastic bottles and keeping a few extra bucks in your pocket. Now doesn’t that sound good?

Bring some butt boxes and keep your butts off the ground! An altoid tin or any pocket-sized closed container works great for storing your cigarette butts until you find a trash can. Keeping cigarette butts off the ground keeps the land beautiful. It also lessens the work the cleanup crew has to do, and we all want that.

Bring at least two containers to separate trash and recyclables in your campsite and encourage everyone to use them. Guess what? You can win HUGE prizes just for bringing your recycling or composting to us! Look for the Recycle Rewards tent to win tickets to Wanee, a VIP Upgrade and other cool prizes!

What You Can Recycle

• Plastic bottles (Empty with caps on – No cups!)
• Glass bottles
• Aluminum cans
• Steel cans
• Cardboard
• Clean plastic bags (keep separate from other recyclables)
• Check out what else you can recycle – you might be surprised!

Spread the Word!

• Support vendors who have compostable or recyclable food containers and tell them why
• Share this with your friends – using this page can help you be Green Waneeans!
