Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if it rains?
Rain or Shine

Make sure you can stay dry on the off chance that we do get some rain. Over the years there have been very limited bouts of rain. When it rains, our patrons pop some umbrellas and hunker down for some wonderful music. One of my favourite Wild Mountain days was Matt Andersen, a bit of stubborn rain, a dedicated audience and some kick-butt music!

Can I bring my pets?
No pets allowed

No Pets Allowed - I'm sure you are a responsible pet owner, but some are not and no one wants to have to avoid 'field bombs' getting back to camp after the music. It works best if everyone leaves pets at home.

Is there camping?

The field is rustic, so bring everything you need. Your weekend passes get you onto the field with your camper or tent.

Note: No open fires are allowed.

We have expanded the camping area and we will run out of tickets before we run out of camping. This is a working ranch so please practice zero-trace camping (pack out what you pack in). The site is a spectacular spot... we want to help Rocky keep The Entrance Ranch clean.

what are the gate hours?
The gates...

will open to park campers on Thursday from 12 pm until 8 pm. If you don't get to the field, the gates will reopen at 10 am on Friday. We have room for everyone, so be polite. Every person in your vehicle must have a wristband or they will not be allowed on the field. Gates close each night at midnight. No vehicle traffic is allowed after that.

What can't I bring?
What can't I bring?

No pets, glass items, ATV's, Hot-Tubs (yes we have had to deal with draining a tub, which nearly drowned a near-by tenter), or drones - we have had an issue with drones not respecting people's privacy. Respect one another and let's have a great time.

Is there a shuttle?

Wild Mountain will run a shuttle from multiple drop off/pick up spots in Hinton to the festival site. There will be a shuttle that will get you to the show prior to the start of the music and they run until well after the music ends, so you can ride the shuttle and not miss any of the fun.

Can we bring the kids?

Wild Mountain is a family friendly event, with lots of families in attendance. Kids ages twelve and under are free! The Wild Mountain Children's Area has activities planned for the kids and Entrance Ranch, which hosts Wild Mountain, has horse rides and trail rides over the weekend.

Is there recycling on site?

We are green and will have a station to recycle paper, glass, cardboard and plastics. Keep all garbage in the bins and we will keep the field as clean as possible.

Are there RV hook-ups?
No hook-ups

Wild Mountain is rustic and there are no hook-ups. Since this is a working ranch please take everything you bring. Cigarette butts are toxic to horses, so respect the ranch and do not throw butts on the ground.

Is there a store on-site?

Wild Mountain General Store - We carry the basics in case you forgot something important at home!

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Wild Mountain has the best beer tent with great views of both performance stages so you don't have to miss any of the shows. No alcohol is allowed on the festival performance field and must be maintained in the beer tent and/or at your campsite. No glass please!
