Yes! Wanderlands is located at the magnificent High Camp (8,200’ of elevation), a lovely tram ride away from Squaw’s lower village. High Camp can only be accessed by aerial tram, a 20 minute ride departing from the base of the mountain.
Camping passes are sold per person, not by campsite. $260 for up to 4 nights. Camping passes can be purchased on our tickets page here.
Access to the tram (cable car) is included in your Wanderlands pass; tram will be available for extended hours for campers.
*We are going cashless this year for ticket sales. If you wish to purchase a ticket onsite please bring a credit or debit card.
All ticket sales are final, but you are free to sell/transfer your camping ticket to another attendee if you wish.
Pick up your Wanderlands camping pass at the Compass at the base; our Camp Manager will be available to greet you at the campgrounds. Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that the tram does not provide coverage for all Wanderlust early-morning and late-night activities, so, if you like to party from dawn til’ dusk, we recommend alternate lodging at base camp.

Except in case of a medical emergency, you will not be able to leave the campsite outside of tram hours. Emergency medical personnel will be on site at Wanderlands.
