What Should I Bring?
This time of year Southwestern Ontario is perfect for camping, days are full of sunshine and the nights are warm. Rain is always a possibility so come prepared. Bring that extra blanket just in case. We also ask that you bring any musical instruments to the festival. We always gather in the evenings for drumming, dancing, singing and more, so why not join in the fun? Bugs are not usually an concern at OakHaven but it never hurts to bring Bug Spray, you never know what they are going to be like. Check out our suggested “Packing List“.
