Camping Info

Enjoy the complete festival experience by camping along the historic Suwannee River for the weekend.  The park has plenty of sites available with complete facilities for both RV’s and tent campers. 

Primitive Camping
Primitive camping is first come, first serve.  The full festival and Sat/Sun festival ticket priceFile 422
includes park access, parking & primitive camping fees.  There are primitive camping areas in different parts of the park.  Check out the primitive area that is out behind the horse camping - the park calls it the "80 acres" - it's a little farther out, but has wonderful wooded camping galore.  In addition you have primitive camping all over the park, including the Pine Field, the Bird Sanctuary, Rees Lake and the Farm Field (the drum camp is located here so if you want quiet - this is not the place to be).  Quiet camping is available upon request when you check in at the front gate.  Remember that arrivals for the festival prior to Thursday, require additional camping fees to the park.



Electric/Water Site Upgrades
Please note that the park assigns specific sites when you reserve your space. Please call early if you have a special site you want to upgrade to, or if you want to camp in upgraded sites beside or near other people. Primitive camping is included with your full festival ticket.  If you would like a site with electric, water, and/or sewer, you should purchase an upgrade by visiting or calling the park at 386-364-1683.   Your festival tickets may be purchased by calling the park or visiting our online ticket page.

Rees Lake Camping
Many of our festival folks camp around or near Rees Lake, where both Slopryland and the Bill Monroe Shrine is located.  While these numbered sites were previously used as primitive, all the water and electric sites at Rees Lake are now available for reserved upgrade the same as other upgraded sites in the park.  


Click below to link to the park's campground map.  All numbered spots on the map are water and electric.  The "80 Acres" is located past horse camping and barn noted on the map. The map doesn't show it, but there are now roads to that camping area.   But if you want an upgraded water and electric spot reserved in advance and held just for you, including the Rees Lake spots, then call the park and reserve one of the upgraded sites in the park.  All specific questions regarding tickets, camping, camping fees and reservations should be directed to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park office at 386-364-1683 or Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park Campground Map
