SSF22 Camping: Tents

MASS MoCA teams up with the City of North Adams to provide SolidGround — a field for tent camping within easy walking distance from Solid Sound and convenient to downtown merchants, bars, and restaurants. This is a basic, open-field tent site with concession food service, porta-potties, and drinking water. A self-monitored, donation-based cell phone charging station will be available. A basketball court, skate park, and spray park are nearby.

A second field, at Camp Aggie in Adams, is also available for camping and RVs and is located just under 6 miles from the festival and museum. Learn more about Camp Aggie camping here.
