Everything you wanted to know about camping...but were afraid to ask
RV and tent campers may arrive as early as noon 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.
Parking for one vehicle is included with each camping pass. Additional vehicles passes (limit 2) can be purchased for $80 each. The owner of the camping pass must purchase extra vehicle passes through the box office PRIOR to the Festival. ALL vehicles must have a pass or it will not be allowed past the property entrance, there are no exceptions to this rule. Call the Box Office at 541-345-9263 and purchase your passes today. Read the FAQ here.
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
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.
Elmore County, where the Festival is located, has an ordinance that must be observed by all campers. This means voices must be quiet by 1:30am, 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 7am it’s game on, until then, nighty night little camper.
We have a zero-tolerance cruising policy. With the darkness of country 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.
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.
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. Read our alcohol policy in full.
All camping areas include portable toilet facilities, hand washing units, RV pumping and complimentary trash pickup. Contact information and operating hours will become available the month prior to the Festival.
No dumping of grey or waste water on Festival property. If you should need your wastewater holding tank pumped, RV pumping will be available on-site. Contact information and operating hours will become available the month prior to the Festival.
RV and tent campers arriving on the property Thursday should bring in enough water to last them until late afternoon on 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. Contact information and operating hours will become available the month prior to the Festival.
It’s cool, you can bring your pool. It must fit within the boundaries of your campsite. Contact information and operating hours will become available the month prior to the Festival.
Volunteers can be flagged down while driving through the camping areas in vehicles marked “Ice” or visit the ice truck. Cash and RFID accepted. Contact information and operating hours will become available the month prior to the Festival.
Complimentary trash pickup will be available on-site. Simply place your bagged trash at the front corner of campsite and a volunteer will pick it up. After 6PM on Sunday, all trash must be carried out by the camper. Do not leave trash on your site!
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. Campers who pre-purchased shower passes online will pick them up from the attendant at the shower station. Individual shower passes may be purchased from the attendant, cash and Cashless accepted. Shower times cannot be prescheduled.
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.
