That land is beautiful. Taking it from it's current owners is wrong, but I agree that they need to send the message that you can't allow free drug use and distribution. Camp Zoe needs to tighten their drug policies. If these people really enjoy the music and the atmosphere, they'll continue to attend the music festivals, even though they can no longer use hallucinogens. Drinking could still be allowed to those of age, the rest should be marked with the infamous minor "M" on the hand, and properly inforced.
If the owners truly love the land, and how they make their living, then they need to take the proper steps to limit illegal activities on their land. Just my opinion.

That's right. Keep the drugs and illegal activities on the city streets and highways where they belong.

News said its down by Salem. I agree with Law of the Land, if the owners want to run a legal place for people to go listen to music and enjoy good company then by all means do that. But drugs are illegal no matter where you have them. We dont need our kids hooked on them.

And to Dozer, thats just a really dumb statement. Why would you want the drugs anywhere?

I got talked into going once unfortunately. My friends lied to me saying 'its really not full of people doing drugs and getting high, because i don't care for drunks or druggies. They said its just a bunch of loving people that love good music. and yeah there was a lot of loving going on lol. you can just walk around and theres like "vendors" that sell whatever drugs you want! and like there was this one guy i saw down by the river, he stood in knee deep water for at least 45 minutes that i know of, searching for his mind, literally...he kept looking in the water saying "i've lost my mind" and every once in a while he would jump in trying to get it. crazy stuff. i bet a lot of stds get transferred down there too lol

I agree, it is dumb, stupid, ignorant, but im just going along with the government and law enforcement. The drug problem is rampant in this country and I think camp zoe needs to be managed differently, or maybe even shut down, but to take someone's land and say it's to fight drugs or think it will stop them or even slow them down is the government puffing up and sticking their chest out. In my opinion this is the most UNAMERICAN thing I have ever heard of in my life!

Ok here is the real information and this should put a lot of these crazy rumors to rest!

Camp Zoe was seized by the IRS for tax evasion. It had nothing to do with drugs at all. They owed years of unpaid taxes and received several notices and calls and never did anything about it.

Pure and simple it is a case of tax evasion and all their assets have been seized. I know this for a fact since I am one of the vendors that was written a check from Camp Zoe after their Halloween Spookstock and the account is closed. I spoke to them direcly and they are trying to get the funds released since checks had been written against the event and now the IRS has taken everything they have. The IRS knowing it is a big event waited till it was over and the money was in their account and seized it all. The IRS does not care about the drugs or what goes on there at all and are not fighting a drug problem, they just want their money.

So now you all know, you can stop the speculation.

For those that want to help Camp Zoe prove their case in court a fund has been set up. All need to go to their web site and read their information at www.campzoe.com

If you think for one minute I would ever donate to something that allows my children, grandchildren, or any other child the oppertunity to do drugs you are very wrong. I hope they seize the place and it never opens back up.And as for the tax thing. That may be true but the drugs are still rampart down there.

Gov't doesn't pay the bills by seizing for drugs, but tax evasion, now that's another subject.

Guess should have paid taxes on the income from drug sales. LOL

That's just not it. It was a joint complaint from the DEA, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the US Attorney's office. Here's a link to the actual complaint that was filed for the asset forfeiture.

To Info- This town is pathetic...and everyone is closed minded. all there is in this town is banks and churches and they judge everysingle person that attends camp zoe its really rediculous. Thank u for telling them the true fact but these ppl dont give a shit. they are all shit starters, gossipers, and judgemental people that believe everything they hear...and thats that camp zoe is where u go to get fucked up. and nothing more. They dont take into consideration the many ppl that go there for music and friends and as a simple and fun drama-free getaway. And until the people of mountain grove missouri would ever go and expirience it for themselves thats all they will think of it. Theres no point in waisting ur time explaining anything about that seize to these simple minded ppl.

You are quite wrong, it is mainly due to the distribution of drugs. They even said on their website that they were raided by 70+ Irs, DEA homeland security highway patrol and local law enforcement. If it is simply tax evasion how come there is a 4 year long investigation going on that consists of video surveillance of drugs being sold, under cops bought drugs there, and of course they got the squeeze on some hippy snitches. The under cover cops bought cocaine, pot, lsd and other acids, mushrooms and marijuana laced food. Go to campzoe.com and at the bottom of the page there are several news links and click on any one of them, they all say the same thing. They were lieing to you when they said its just income tax evasion, because in the reports it states that the owner has NOT been charged with any crimes at all, if it was income tax evasion he would be charged with a felony. The reason they are seizing his land is because the law is if any of your personal property is used for something illegal, in this case drug use and distribution, the government has the right to seize it. Tough shit maybe next time someone will think before letting 10,000 people get messed up on his property.

Well, if that's the law, then they should seize every private owned camp ground, music festival, bar, club, and wal mart parking lot in the country.

Or Camp Zoe could've taken some easy, necessary steps to prevent drug usage on their property. If you've ever attended another music festival, most of the large ones will check vehicles on the way in, even individuals sometimes. If you're caught using anything, tickets are voided and you go home. Obviously, this doesn't completely stop people from doing it anyway..but I feel that if they had at least TRIED to make it a music show, instead of a drug sampling festival, this wouldn't be as big of an issue.

They hand u a flyer when u go in the gate with a list of rules One is No illegal drug use or distribution another is No underage drinking. They will not sell alcohol in the store there and all the staff and security will tell u drug use or illegal activity is prohibitied and they will turn you in. I have witnessed with my own eyes. and they also do search every vehicle that goes through the gate. Every single music festival normally has police involved this one on the other hand just had staff and security which obviously was not enough to keep the drugs out so therefor maybe the cops would just like to be a part of camp zoe to make sure with their own eyes that none of this goes on....and by the way. What he will get charged with if anything is tax evasion not illicit drug use and sells because theres no evidence. And then Monday after Spook stock when they were searched all that was found or arrested was on drunk guy which im guessing that he was either underage or mouthing an officer. No one with drugs.
thats that
