Mountain Music Festival is only 3 months away and we are getting excited for West Virginia’s best music festival. Located smack in the middle of the New River Gorge National Park, ACE Adventure Resort has some beautiful mountaintop camping for you to enjoy. We wanted to give you a little insight into the camping situation this year at MMFest and get you some insider tips so you have the best weekend possible. Get your tickets now for an epic start to summer this June 2nd-4th at Mountain Music Festival.
Camping on the Mountaintop
Bring your tent and your comfy chairs for a weekend of camping, friends, great music and more. Camping at MMFest is car camping, which means when you arrive you will park your vehicle and spring up camp right next to it. Make friends with your neighbors because festival style camping means there are friendly folks all around. You will have plenty of room to setup your home away from home including your tent and living space. Some folks really know how to camp and create entire living rooms with tents, rugs and even inflatable couches. Don’t forget the kitchen setup too since propane stoves and fires are allowed at Mountain Music Festival.
Insider Tip: Get a canopy tent for your campsite. These are pretty inexpensive (less than $100) and you won’t regret the purchase. These collapsible tents are usually 10 feet by 10 feet and pack away nicely. They will provide your campsite with plenty of shade or a dry place to hang out in the event of rain. Be sure to stake down your tent well or the sudden gust of wind may send it sailing.
Get The Best Campsites
In reality all of the campsites on the mountain are fantastic, some are just a bit closer than others. New for 2022 we put together a Preferred Parking Pass option for folks who want to be sure they are close to the action. With this pass campers will be able to ensure their campsite is between campground rows G and N, which is the main part of the Mountaintop Campground. General Admission camping is just down the road and only a short 15-minute walk to the main stage. Don’t forget there are free bus shuttles roaming the mountain to save you from walking all the time.
Insider Tip: Want to make sure you are camping with your buddies? Campsites are assigned as you arrive and in the order you arrive to the Mountaintop Campground. This means that if you don’t drive up the mountain together you will be parked/camped in separate areas. Unfortunately we are not able to save spots for people who will arrive later. Here is what we suggest, when you arrive to the resort park in the main parking area. Have a drink or some food at The Lost Paddle, check out the waterpark or go for a hike on one of the many trails. Once your friends arrive convoy up the mountain together and camp together.
What to Bring
We put together this checklist to help you pack for this epic weekend. Packing for a vacation can often be a daunting task and no matter how much planning you are always going to forget something. Hopefully that something isn’t major and when you get to ACE Adventure Resort there is a good chance we can take care of you.
Insider Tip: Visit ACE Mountain Sports next to the waterpark for anything you may have forgotten or pickup some ACE souvenirs and gear too. ACE Mountain Sports also has cases of beer to go for your campsite.
