Tips for the Blue Ox 2024 Early Bird Sale:

Time Limit & Afton Account: Once you cart your ticket(s) and/or campsite(s) you will have 12 minutes to complete your purchase. Part of this process includes logging into an existing Afton account or creating a new one. You can create an Afton Account HERE ahead of the on sale date to save time.

*If you have an Afton account, log in BEFORE the on-sale begins to save time.

*If you decide to checkout as a guest during the on-sale, you can always go back in and access your tickets in your account by selecting ‘Forgot Password’.

Campground Map Color Coding: When purchasing a campsite, look for a white square to select and add to your cart.

  • White Square = Available campsite
  • Pink Square = Occupied/Already purchased
  • Yellow Square = Campsite in someone else’s cart
  • Purple Square = Campsite YOU selected
  • Gray Square = Unavailable

Online Purchases vs Phone Orders: You have a better chance of securing a specific campsite location by booking the site online (on your own time and device) instead of calling into the office since we use the same online system for phone orders and have VERY LIMITED call capacity.
