We hope you are excited for Mountain Music Festival happening this week at ACE Adventure Resort. We wanted to send you some information to speed up your arrival and fill you in on all the details for this exciting weekend only hours away!


The campground will open daily at 10:00 AM for new arrivals. Be sure you have your e-ticket with QR code printed out or easily accessible on your phone when you arrive. If everyone in your vehicle has their tickets as you pull up to the resort you can get checked in without leaving your car. The ticket attendants will scan the QR code on your ticket to check you into the event. If you need to purchase additional tickets, early arrival or anything else you will be directed into the Welcome Center. Please note cell phone service might be spotty so it’s best to screenshot or download your tickets to your phone.

Cabin Check In

If you are staying in a cabin or cabin tent you will need to check in at the Welcome Center to get keys to your lodging accommodations. Cabin check in begins at 4pm daily and check out is at 10am.

Parking Pass

New this year, parking is included with your weekend pass. So there is no need to purchase a parking pass. You will receive a parking pass when you arrive and have your tickets scanned in. Please hang your parking pass from your rearview mirror. Single day tickets DO NOT include camping and will be directed to park at the bottom of the mountain and ride the free shuttle to the festival site.

Early Arrival

If you have an early arrival pass you are able to arrive on the day designated on your early arrival ticket. You MUST also possess a 2-Day Ticket with Early Arrival and Super Early Arrival Passes. Early arrival passes are per person.

Campground Assignments

All camping is car camping and you will be camping next to your vehicle. Please be aware that you will be assigned a parking spot and camping spot in the order in which you arrive. Our parking attendants are not able to “hold spots” for later arrivals. If you arrive prior to the rest of your camping party we suggest you hang out around the bottom of the mountain. Stop by the waterpark or have a snack at the bar while you wait for the rest of your party to arrive. Once your camping group is all onsite then you can make your way to the Mountaintop Campground so you can camp together. You are welcome to leave your campsite but we strongly suggest that you keep your vehicle in place once parked for the weekend to ensure your space is not taken by a rogue camper.

The Turkey Spur Shuttle will loop through that area of the resort every 30 minutes.
