The campsite at night

The Campsite is a Location that becomes accessible after the player completes the Prologue. This is a special location that the player discovers when they first initiate a long rest, and can subsequently be traveled to similarly or through fast travel.

Purpose and Usage[edit | edit source]

The Magic Mirror

The night-time version of the campsite serves as the primary location for Long Resting and reforming the party composition. It is also a key location to progress the main and companion stories through camp conversations.

The day-time version of the camp is accessed whenever the player chooses to arrive at it through fast travel. The player may also appear here instead of in the World Map after resting if certain camp cutscenes that don't trigger automatically are available.

Withers can also be interacted with from the Campsite, and in Multiplayer, Withers' Wardrobe of Wayward Friends will spawn there when player characters are dismissed. As of Patch 3, the Magic Mirror can be found at the Campsite; from this, Custom and Dark Urge characters (not Origins, Hirelings, or Companions) can change their appearance.

Waypoints[edit | edit source]

This location does not contain any waypoints, but can be fast travelled to at any point. Arriving at the campsite this way will show the daytime version of the location.

Instances[edit | edit source]

The appearance of the Campsite (tents, furniture, characters, etc.) may change as the story progresses, provided the player gathers companions and allies. The campsite has several instance variants that are used when travelling to camp from certain game locations. Like the open world it is possible to loot containers and take items to be sold. These can be looted from each instance.

  • Wilderness Campsite: This is the primary campsite players visit when in the Wilderness or many of its Zones and locations.
  • Overgrown Chapel Campsite: This is the primary campsite players visit when in the interior regions of the Overgrown Ruins
  • Blighted Village (Basement) Campsite: This campsite is visited when in the basement / cellar of any home in the Blighted Village.
  • Cavern Campsite: This campsite is visited when resting in the Whispering Depths.
  • Underdark Campsite: This campsite is visited when in the primary Underdark region.
  • Underdark (Grymforge) Campsite: This campsite is visited when in Grymforge
  • Underground Campsite: This campsite is visited when in underground over-land regions such as the Zhentarim Basement or the Underground Passage.
  • Rosymorn Monastery Trail Campsite: This campsite is visited when resting in the main area of Rosymorn Monastery Trail
  • Baldur's Gate Alley Campsite: This campsite is visited when resting while in the Lower City in Act III.
  • Elfsong Tavern Suite: This campsite is different from the others in that it is not automatically obtained by resting. Instead, the player must speak to Alan Alyth behind the bar of the Elfsong Tavern and unlock the option to stay at the Inn, either by paying gold or via a dialogue check. Once unlocked the room will be available on rest, and replaces the Alley Campsite as the main camp while resting in Baldur's Gate.

Item Persistence[edit | edit source]

You can place items, containers, chests in a camp. If you return to the same camp instance those items will persist. However, if you travel to a different camp instance type, those items will not be moved to the new instance.

At a certain point in the story you can not return to camp instances from previous Acts. So storing items in these camps can be dangerous (pending further testing).

Galleries[edit | edit source]

Campsites are often visually distinct between regions.

Individual campsites may vary greatly in layout and expanse.
