Campsite Information
  • Every campsite is 18’ x 40.’
  • Only (1) sleeping unit (tent, RV, etc.) is allowed on a campsite.
  • There are only (6) people allowed per campsite.
  • Every person camping or visiting the campgrounds will need to be wearing a campground access pass to get inside the campgrounds. Only (1) campground access pass comes with your campsite; any additional people camping on your campsite will need to have purchased an additional campground access pass. For example, if you purchase a campsite for yourself and your two friends, you yourself will not need a campground access pass because you get one free with the purchased campsite. However, you will need to purchase two additional campground access passes for your two friends.
  • There is only (1) vehicle allowed on a campsite. Note: If you are driving an RV and have an additional car, both will be allowed on the campsite, as the RV is your sleeping unit and the car will then be your additional vehicle.
  • Semi trailers, large enclosed trailers, or flatbed trailers are not allowed in the campgrounds.
  • Some campsites are not level, as the campground is located in a large field. We cannot tell you what each individual campsite looks like (we have over 7,000), so PLEASE be prepared and bring your own blocking.
  • All campsites are marked with patio blocks. Removal of these blocks will result in being fined. Anyone taking someone else’s spot will be asked to move their camper.
  • All campsites will be mowed to average grass length, however, you are more than welcome to come mow your campsite during early setup. Please see “early camping” for more information.
  • Please keep fire pits at least 10’ away from any sleeping unit or vehicle.
  • Convenience Stores are located just past the main entrance by the showers in the South campground, and at the end of row ELI in the North campground.
  • Fire rings are available for rent for $6/weekend at the convenience stores.
  • The convenience stores are open 24/7 in both the North and South Campgrounds.
Clean Campsite Information
  • A $50.00 deposit is required on any furniture brought into the campgrounds. If you take your furniture out with you and your campsite is clean when you leave, your $50.00 can be reclaimed at the entrance gate by noon on the Monday following the festival.
  • Recycling and garbage bins are located throughout the campgrounds and concert area. You will need to bring your own garbage bags. There will be no campground garbage pick-up. Please take your garbage and recycling to the appropriate bin nearest your campsite.
  • Aluminum cans are a donated to local organizations who keep our grounds clean. Please place your cans in the “cans only” bins.
  • Please leave your campsite in the same condition that you found it when you came. You will be given a clean campsite form with your order that you will need to fill out before getting to the grounds, giving the Entry portion to the gate attendant. When you leave at the end of the weekend, please have Fest staff check out your campsite, signing the bottom portion of the clean campsite form, and give it to the gate attendant as you leave the grounds.
  • Any campsite left in dissatisfactory condition will be invoiced anywhere between $100.00-$2500.00. Please dispose of everything from your campsite EXCEPT FOR hot coals. Leave any hot coals in the fire pit and a Fest employee will clean those up after the festival is over.

Surrounding landowners can also go to court with a civil suit to collect damages from trespassers.
  • Any violators of Country Fest or State regulations will be subject to having their wristband removed and will be escorted from the festival grounds with no refunds. Violators will also be subject to fine according to state and local regulations.
  • A $100.00 reward will be given for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of any perpetrators selling any illegal items on the Country Fest premises.
