Im considering going up this year and I want to know if there is camping on the grounds, wether at your car or designated lot. If not is there a campground near by. Anybody been there before that could answer this?

First off, Mt. Jam is a blast. Went the last two years, and I don't have a bad thing to say about that festival (except the occassional black bear siting). Great lineup, laid back security, very scenic, and of course, Warren Haynes. There is camping on the grounds, but you have to park your car in the lot and walk to it. Last year we got there a day late and had to carry all our gear from the back of the lot, into the grounds, and up a steep mountain. It was a long and tiring walk. It was worth it, but I suggest getting there relatively early so you can camp on the bottom of the mountain. Makes life a lot easier.
