So you brought your toys, goodie for you, we’re all impressed. Now park it in your campsite and leave it there for the duration of the Festival. 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.

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, Trailers, 5th Wheels, etc. must be parked front to back in the campsite (e.g. no horseshoeing, boxing, etc.) The Festival grounds are located on a working ranch, 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 any Festival related questions. Our Camp Hosts are there for your safety, assistance, and to ensure your Festival experience is a pleasant one.
Cooking at Your Campsite
Preparing outside food and beverages at your campsite is permitted with the use of propane grills only. All propane grills, whether standing or tabletop, must be at least 30" above ground at all times.
All other grills, campfires and fire pits, including charcoal and wood burning, are strictly prohibited. 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. See your camp hosts to make dumping arrangements.
Elmore 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 Elmore 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 Elmore County’s friendly deputies will escort you out.

Camper’s shower facilities are located on the Festival grounds. We encourage you to pre-purchase a three-pack of shower passes for $15 so your passes are waiting for pickup at the shower station. If you prefer standing in line with cash, towel and rubber duckie in hand, you can purchase individual passes from the attendant at the Festival for $5 each. Showers are open from 7am to 7pm daily, your bathtime cannot be pre-scheduled.
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.
Sorry, y’all, but we can’t allow alcohol outside of the licensed venue area. That means no alcohol in the camping or parking areas. Read more about our policy.
