We’ve developed this guide to help you get the most pine cones out of this very special event! In order to submit a support ticket, please visit https://support.decagames.com or send one from within our mobile games.
Summer is ending soon, but we have one last adventure to share with you. We have invited special guests from your favourite houses - Mountain Sun, Blazing Gale, Hidden Bolt, Icy Torrent and Iron Blossom, to represent them in a little friendly competition.
Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on September 24th, 2020. If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.20.
Earning Pine Cones
During this event, Pine Cones can be earned in a variety of ways. They can then be exchanged for fabulous prizes at the Campsite Merchant!
Ways to Earn Pine Cones:
- Collecting from habitats
- Breeding and hatching dragons
- Purchasing Dragons with Gems
- Watching Visions at Tolzar's Optical Oracle
- Competing in the Colosseum
- Playing Eggy Hatchy
- Finding and tapping on special visitors
- Playing games in the Adventure Tent
- Competing in challenges at the Proving Grounds
- Collecting daily rewards at the Participation Station
The Campsite Merchant can be found on the event island and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event. Prizes are divided into several collections and collecting more unique prizes will unlock more prize collections.
Exchanging Pine Cones for Prizes
- Visit the Campsite Merchant and tap the Prizes icon
- View available prizes by tapping each of the different collections
- A counter on each prize will show you how many of that item you currently own. Please note that dragons that have not yet been hatched will not be counted.
- Collect the required number of unique prizes to unlock higher tiers
Unlocking Additional Prize Collections
Collecting more unique prizes will unlock the higher tiers. The number of unique prizes required to unlock each tier is visible within the Campsite Merchant. If you already own an item from one of the prize collections, it will count towards unlocking higher tiers. Please note that multiples of the same item do not count towards unlocking higher tiers.

Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Adventure Tent, you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing an additional play is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 12 hours as usual.
Sometimes mini-games contain a Golden Chest that will provide special rewards. You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying an additional play gives a 100% chance of a Golden Chest appearing on your next turn. Please note that this only guarantees that the chest will appear, and not that you will be able to win the chest.
The Participation Station rewards you for each day you play during the event. Earn free Pine Cones and even dragons!
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises!
If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit the Participation Station, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Please note: Mystery Eggs from the Participation Station must be collected before the end of the event. If you earn the day 30 reward, but do not collect it prior to the event ending on October 26th 11:00 AM Mountain Time, the Mystery Egg will be placed in your gifts menu.
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Pine Cones!
- Challenges will last six hours each
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
Special Visiting Wizards
Each day there will be special wizards visiting your park. Keep an eye out for them for a chance to earn extra Pine Cones, DragonCash and even gems! You will know they are there when you see the green border around the visitor icon.
Eggy Hatchy is our newest addition to the Vale! After years in the making, we’re happy to announce that this new mini game will be part of the Camp DragonVale event. A lot of time, effort and sweat was put into this, so we hope you enjoy it.
Once the Camp DragonVale begins, the Eggy Hatchy Island will appear in the upper left corner of your park, close to the galaxy islands. You need to be at least level 11 to try it out, and if it hasn’t appeared in your park yet, make sure to update your application to 4.20.
Eggy Hatchy consists of Towers, with typical Camp inspired names. You will be given the chance to play a Tutorial Tower during the event tutorial, that will give you the feel of this mini game. Every day, new towers will appear for new and exciting challenges, so make sure to login often!
Eggy Hatchy Stages are organized into groups called Towers. Each Eggy Hatchy Tower consists of 5 Stages. Players progress through the Tower by accumulating points when playing the Stages. Each stage rewards the player with items or currencies for completing round-specific goals.
To play a stage of Eggy Hatchy, tap on an egg and then tap on another egg that is connected to the first one by a white line. Tap the second egg again to complete the “breed.” To bank an Egg, tap on the egg, then tap on the Bank button. A Stage ends when all eggs have been banked or no valid moves remain. Use your knowledge of DragonVale breeding to complete the goals and win Pine Cones!
Note: when Bring ‘em Back is available, you will have the chance to breed even more exotic dragon eggs on the Game board!
Note 2: If you haven’t accumulated enough points to unlock the next Stage, you can get more by going back to previous Stages. If you are replaying an already completed Stage, this will cost you 1 Ticket, but you won’t be given special rewards upon completing it.
This feature uses a special currency to play - Tickets. You can find your current balance of Tickets on the upper left corner of the UI. Tickets to play stages in Eggy Hatchy regenerate every half hour, up to a maximum of 5 tickets. A countdown to the next free ticket is shown under the ticket balance. 1 stage cost 1 Ticket. Additional Tickets can be purchased in the Market.
Each Stage has different goals. Every Stage's goals are listed in the Goals area, to the left of the Game Board. Make sure to complete all of the goals of a stage in one play to get the magic rewards! Rarity has a large effect on the score of an egg. Hunt for those Rare and Epic dragons to clear those hard score goals. Merging the same egg with itself will lead to an extra level gained on the resulting egg! A twin egg means its score is doubled! Twin status will also never be lost in a breed, so use that to your advantage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?
Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on September 24th, 2020.
If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.20.
What is the daily limit of Pine Cones?
There is no overall daily limit on Pine Cones in this event, but the maximum amount of Pine Cones you can earn by collecting from habitats is 500 per day on a regular day and 1000 on a double day.
Why am I not receiving Pine Cones when I collect from my habitats?
If you are no longer earning any Pine Cones when you collect from habitats, that would indicate that you have reached your habitat limit for the day.
Why didn't I win the Golden Chest when I bought an additional play at the Adventure Tent?
Buying an additional play guarantees that a Golden Chest will appear as one of the possible prizes in that round, but does not guarantee that you will be able to win it. Please note that in Name that Dragon you must answer correctly before the timer expires in order to win the Golden Chest.
When does Camp DragonVale end?
The Camp DragonVale event runs through October 25th, and concludes on October 26th at 11:00 AM Mountain Time. It will not be possible to earn additional Pine Cones after this time, but the Campsite Merchant will remain open for two additional days so you can spend any leftover Pine Cones you may have.
When does the Campsite Merchant close?
The Campsite Merchant will close on October 28th at 11:00 AM Mountain Time and it will not be possible to claim event prizes after this time.
What happens to my leftover Pine Cones at the end of Camp DragonVale?
After the Campsite Merchant closes, we'll turn any leftover Pine Cones into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 Pine Cone.
What is the red exclamation mark next to the Eggy Hatchy ticket balance?
If there is an active sale on any Eggy Hatchy Tickets, the ticket balance will display an exclamation mark.
Why is my Stage grayed out and unplayable?
You haven’t accumulated enough points to unlock this Stage. Please replay older stages in order to collect the necessary amount of points.
Do I need to complete all stages of a tower to move to the next one?
No, you can progress on different Towers at the same time.
I ran out of towers, how do I unlock more?
New towers will appear every day during the Camp DragonVale event. Login daily for exciting challenges!
Do my Eggy Hatchy plays count towards the other mini games?
No, Eggy Hatchy is a separate entity. You still have your 5 free plays every 12 hours in the Adventure Tent.
If a tower has multiple goals, do I have to complete them all at once for them to count or can I do them separately in several runs?
You have to meet all requirements for a Stage to be successfully completed.
Does the dragon egg combination reflect in-game breeding of the same dragons?
No. Eggy Hatchy follows the same familiar DragonVale breeding system, but as in the park, it’s a matter of luck.
