Campfires & Cooking
Every Premium Accommodation has a fire pit and guests in those accommodations are welcome to have campfires in them. WE WILL HAVE WOOD FOR SALE at our general store so there is no need to haul in wood.

For those of you camping in the General or Quiet camping areas, please know that the amount of space between tents will be about 2 feet per tent. Set up camp expecting to have your neighbors within that proximity of your camp. Be respectful to your neighbors and please keep noise to a minimum after hours. If you need to socialize while others may be sleeping, there are plenty of places you can walk to that are nice and away from campers.

Trash – Like any good camper, try to follow the “leave no trace” backpacker motto and pack out what you pack in. Please dispose of your trash at the end of the festival. Help us by going a step further—if you see something on the ground that didn’t grow there, pick it up, and put it in the nearest bin. We’re all in this together!
Hungry? We imagine you will be. That’s why we’ve lined up some of the best Northwest food vendors to join us this year.

These local and family-owned businesses have been great partners and are excited to have us!
Photos and blogging – We love seeing pictures, but remember you’re here to experience the festival and be with friends. Sometimes putting the phones and iPads down is the best first step toward having an amazing experience outdoors. If you do snap a picture or two, hashtag #Timberfest when posting them on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. If you post your photos on Flickr or write a blog about us, shoot us a message on Facebook after the festival to let us know. We’d love to share!
Help each other –While you’re at Timber!, if you see something that needs improvement or someone that needs help, please help us out if you are able. We’re all in this together!
Respect your neighbors – We love the city and people of Carnation. Please remember that we’re all guests in their town and to be courteous to the locals while there. We hope for Timber! to be a tradition for years to come and it’s important we all work together to make our festival a positive event for the people in Carnation.
