Camp out at SHINDIG Tucson, the annual congregation and campout of the Monster Scouts.

Participate in song, story, and ceremony – and celebrate the Monsters with our community of kind, quirky characters.

There are just 74 Campsites Available

NOTE: There is a $15 camping fee collected at the gate by the State Park Staff. We’ve lowered the price of the event to offset this fee.
