When you think of camping at a music festival this summer, we bet that the first thought that comes to mind likely looks something like this

Most music festivals pack hundreds of campers super close together in open fields (read: NO SHADE!), with limited access to resources such as showers, water and power. Well, not Mountain Music Festival.

When you stay with us for the weekend of #MMF2017, you’ll be treated like family with access to FREE showers, clean bathrooms (real toilets!), access to fresh water, power and more. We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable and safe place to call home during the weekend so whether you’re bringing your RV, staying in a cabin or bringing the whole family to one of our safari family tents, know that staying with us will be just as enjoyable as jamming out with us all weekend.

Here’s your guide to on where to stay and what to bring this year:

Camping Options:

Cabins: There is a wide variety of cabin options for you to choose from for your stay with us during Mountain Music Festival. Whether you are looking for a bunkhouse for loads of folks, a more private 2-bedroom cabin or a secluded getaway like our Aspen Log Home, we’ve got cabins throughout the property to make your weekend a bit more comfy than a tent. Cabin rentals for the weekend start at $99!


RV: Enjoy the privacy of your own camper or RV while staying at ACE’s 1,500-acre adventure resort. All sites are conveniently located down by ACE’s main facilities for easy access to activities, dining and showers. Most sites are pull through sites. RVs are also allowed in the campground if you purchase a Campground RV Pass. Campground RV parking does not have hookups for power, water or sewer. We ask you not to use a generator. RV camping passes are only $20!

Tent Camping: Be one with nature at our Mountain Top Campground. In the campground you will find picnic tables and campfire rings spread out across the mountain. Campers here will have the extra bonus of being adjacent to the festival grounds, so your weekend home will always been a short walk away from the music. Tent camping for the weekend is included with your weekend festival pass.
