Camping

PLEASE NOTE – ALL RV SPOTS FOR THE 2017 FESTIVAL ARE NOW RESERVED AS OF 2/15.


General admission to the festival includes camping in ALL non-riverside campsites.  Non-Primitive Riverside campsites or RV sites are not included with festival admission. They are by reservation only.


Reservations for RV sites will begin on February 15th, 2017. We will not take any reservations before that time for dates during the festival.

Festival gates open at 8 am Friday and there’s plenty of room to camp, but if you want to arrive earlier (and secure a prime campsite) you can reserve a site for Thurs or earlier by calling the Hot Springs Campground & Resort at 828-622-7676.

Note: If designated sites fill up, there will still be plenty of room to camp!
You will be allowed to enter the campground and unload your vehicle at your campsite, but will need to buy a parking pass to remain parked in the festival grounds. Parking area is free just outside gate.

The Hot Springs Campground is located along the banks of the French Broad River, a short stroll from the Hot Springs Spa and Natural Mineral Baths. This facility is a favorite stopping point for travelers of all types from hikers coming off the Appalachian Trail to vacationers and health seekers. Our campground is family friendly and shrouded amongst trees offering shade and beautiful settings, even on the hottest day. There is a camp store located at the entrance to the campground that includes a full line of supplies and a small eatery.

The festival gates will open at 8:00 a.m. on Friday.
