Transparency For Attendees

Furry Takeover is a camping style convention located in the mountains, with very little to no cell service. There is wifi at the lodge and some areas around the resort.. We leave a lot of the day hours open so that our attendees can go out and enjoy the resort, rivers, lakes, amazing driving roads, and much more!

What is FTO?

Furry Takeover was established in 2018, holding the first event during the weekend of August 24-26. Unlike a traditional convention, FTO largely takes place in the scenic outdoors of Fontana Dam. Here, not only can you have fun as your furry self by fursuiting or hanging out, but you can also enjoy all the amenities and beauty of the natural setting in this primarily outdoor con.

Join us for fun by the bonfire, playing minigolf, enjoying movie nights with friends, or just relaxing in nature! There's always lots to do and plenty of furries to hang out with. We hope you will join us in seeing just what makes Furry Takeover so much fun!

Lend a helping paw

It takes a lot to put a convention together and make sure things are running smoothly. We always want to ensure everyone has the best experience they possibly can, so we're always happy to have more hands on deck to make that happen.
