Check In/Out

RV and tent campers may arrive as early as 10am on Thursday, July 26 to check-in, and stay as late as noon on Monday, July 30 to check-out. Campers entering the property must have all of the paperwork they received in their camper’s packets ready to go.

Vehicles

EVERY vehicle must have a pass or it will not be allowed past the property entrance, there are no exceptions to this rule.

Parking for one vehicle (in addition to RV) is included with each camping pass. Additional vehicle passes (limit 1) can be purchased for $70 each. The owner of the camping pass must purchase extra vehicle passes through the box office by 6PM on July 19. Call the Box Office at 541-345-9263 and purchase your camping vehicle passes today.

Off-Road Vehicles

ATVs, dune buggies, golf carts, runaway bumper cars, wheelbarrows and show ponies have no place on the Festival grounds and are thus not allowed. This policy is strictly enforced. Wagons and bicycles may be used in the camping area, but they are not permitted inside the music venue.

RV Camp Spaces

RV camp spaces are designed to accommodate six adults. One RV, and, if you like, one small tent are permitted on your RV site. All RVs and trailers must be parked front to back in the campsite; no horseshoeing, boxing, etc. Sorry, there are no hookups for RV camping.

Animals

Pets are allowed on a leash in your campsite. Campers are expected to clean up after their pets. Animals are absolutely, under no circumstances, to be left inside vehicles (RVs, trailers, and campers are fine if they're cool; use your judgement). It is far too hot. Nothing will corral a posse of angry, animal-loving country music fans faster than a dying dog in a hot car. Plus, we'll kick you out faster than you can spit.

No Cruising

We have a zero-tolerance cruising policy. With the darkness of Festival nights, dusty roads, unpredictable furrows and fans walking on the Festival roads, there is no room for tooling around in the back of your pickup with your buddies. Consider the safety of everyone around you. First-time offenders will receive a warning and their vehicle will be flagged in our system. If you're argumentative, non-compliant or caught a second time, your wristband will be cut and you'll be asked to leave.

Lost Camping Passes

Fans who have lost or misplaced their camping passes may purchase replacements for $60 at the Will Call booth, located outside the music venue entrance.

Quiet Time

Jackson County, where the Festival is located, has an ordinance that must be observed by all campers. This means voices must be quiet by midnight, generators shut off, sing-a-longs reduced to the slightest of murmurs and all whooping and hollering canned for the night. This code is strictly enforced by both on-site security as well as Jackson County Deputies. At 7am it's game on. Until then, nighty-night, little camper.

Rules Schmools! What if I don't want to follow them?

It's very simple: if you don't follow the rules, you'll be asked to leave. If you don't leave, you're trespassing. If you're trespassing, one of Jackson County's friendly deputies will escort you out.
