Does my camping pass purchase include any wristbands?
No. Camping passes and wristbands are sold separately. We did this to keep the cost as cheap as possible and wanted to make sure each participant only have to purchase what they need.

If you would like early check-in please email us at [email protected] to make sure your spot is available. There is a $25 charge per trailer for early check-in
When do I need to check out?
All participants are asked to clean their sites and check-out by noon on Sunday October 24th. We understand that if you need dozer assistance times may vary. Please plan to get an early start and be aware there could be a bottle neck as all the campers pack up and prepare to leave the state park. We ask that everyone be patient as our staff and operators will be working as fast as possible to assist each and every camper.
Is there a charge for extra vehicles or trailers?
Each vehicle will need a camping pass to get through the gate. If you have additional vehicles no worries at all, simply purchase a $150 BEACH POD Camping pass for each extra vehicle. This pass allows that vehicle to camp anywhere in the event area including your campsite. Please note that at least one person must have a camping pass associated with the site you are staying in. VEHICLES MUST FIT WITHIN YOUR SITE, We do offer overflow parking if needed!
Will a dozer be available?
To increase efficiency we hope that many of the campers will do research and be prepared to access the beach without the use of a dozer. However if you don't feel comfortable doing so we will have (1) one dozer on-site to assist you. The dozer service is FREE but tips are welcome.
How do I access my camping spot?
Areas 15 can be accessed through Sand Hollow Rd., east of the rental shop. Once you arrive at our gate located on Sand Hollow Road next to the rental shop, you will be greeted and guided to the VIP Sand Camping area by our UTV TAKEOVER security team. We have created a staging concept that will accommodate 15 - 40’ trailers at any given time, where you can safely air down your truck and trailer prior to entering the beach if so you so desire. You will be asked to enter the beach under your own power similar to any other weekend throughout the year. If you don't feel comfortable doing so, simply ask for dozer assistance from a UTV TAKEOVER official.
Does my site have utilities?
No. These are dry camping sites located on the beach. You will need to bring in your own water. We recommend filling your tanks in Hurricane or at the Westside campground located in the park. The Westside campground has 4 dump stations and a water filling station that can be used prior to accessing the event area. Gray water is not permitted to be dumped on the beach. If you need your tanks dumped during the event we will have a septic service company you can call for a small fee or you can head over to the Westside campground location just 1/2 mile away.
