Dirtybird Campout West Coast 2018 is excited to move north to Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds in Central California, offering a lush lakeside camping experience convenient to Northern and Southern campers alike, as well as to major airports for the out of town Birds. Just miles away from the vast Yosemite National Park, Campers will be treated to a beautiful lake ripe for swimming and fishing, beachfront camping and stages so close to the water you can booty shake while you dip those toes, grassy areas for your favorite games and all the amenities you’d expect from the perfect Campout venue, plus a slew of nature-focused activities for anyone looking to escape the big city bustle for the weekend.
It has been the intimacy of the Campout experience that has made it a favorite amongst Campers – and 2018 will be no different with campsites being just a quick hop from the stages and its various attractions placed closer together to make sure that no one is missing out on the fun.
