RV and tent campers may arrive as early as noon on Thursday, July 27 to check-in, and stay as late as noon on Monday, July 31 to check-out. Campers entering the property must have all of the paperwork they received in their camper’s packets ready to go.
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 2) can be purchased for $70 each. The owner of the camping pass must purchase extra vehicle passes through the box office PRIOR to the Festival. Call the Box Office at 541-345-9263 and purchase your camping vehicle passes today.
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.
Tent Camp Spaces
Tent camp spaces are designed to accommodate six adults. Two tents are permitted on your tent site.
Camp hosts are available in each camping area to assist campers in finding their sites and to answer Festival-related questions. Camp hosts sites are marked with large flags. Our Camp Hosts are there for your safety, assistance, and to ensure your Festival experience is a pleasant one.
Campfires & Cooking
Propane grills and above ground propane fire pits may be used to prepare your outside food and beverages at your campsite. Campfires, wood burning, and charcoal grills are not permitted; PROPANE ONLY, this is strictly enforced. If it makes a spark, the answer is NO.
Safety & Courtesy
No loud noise in camping area after midnight, this includes generators. No dumping of grey or waste water on Festival property.
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 9am 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.
For the safety and enjoyment of all Festival campers, alcohol is not permitted outside of the licensed venue area. This means no alcohol in the camping or parking areas.
All camping areas include portable toilet facilities, hand washing units, RV pumping and complimentary trash pickup.
RV and tent campers arriving on the property Thursday should bring in enough water to last them until late afternoon Friday. RVs in need of a tank fill must contact the potable water service, located on-site, or fill their tank prior to entering the Festival grounds.
Have ice delivered directly to your campsite! Volunteers can be flagged down while driving through the camping areas. You may also pick up your own ice from the ice truck. All proceeds from ice sales support a local organization.
Complimentary trash pickup is available Thursday through Sunday. If you are leaving the grounds after 8am on Sunday, take it with you. Do not leave it on site.
Campers' shower facilities are located on Festival grounds. Campers who pre-purchased a three-pack of shower passes online will pick them up from the attendant at the shower station. Individual shower passes may be purchased from the attendant at the Festival for $7 each. Shower times cannot be prescheduled. Open 7am–7pm, Friday–Sunday.
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.
It's cool, you can bring your pool. It must fit within the boundaries of your campsite. Your reservation is required at least seven days prior to the Festival. Pools will be filled on Thursday and Friday only. The fill cannot exceed 2,000 gallons. Approximately four weeks prior to the Festival, we will post the reservation telephone number here in the Camping FAQs page.
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.
Additional details on camper services, as well as a Festival Survival Guide will be posted in the month prior to the Festival.
