Although Grandfather Mountain does not operate a commercial campground, campsites are available at no charge in the Grandfather Mountain Picnic Area for people participating in this event. The picnic area has bathrooms and water fountains, but no other amenities. No formal spots are reserved, but participants usually have no trouble locating a place to pitch their tents or park their vehicles (because it is a big mountain). It is necessary for you to mention camping when you register so that you can be given a windshield pass to identify you as staying in the picnic area.
