When the speakers go silent and the spotlights go dim, the Jamboree In The Hills party moves to our official campgrounds! Our Jamboree campers are some of our most loyal fans…the folks that keep coming back….5…10…15 years to the greatest country music festival of the year!
We do offer hotel packages for those of you who do not enjoy the outdoor life but for those fans who do, we feel there is no other way to get the full Jamboree experience than to camp at Jamboree In The Hills!
Year after year, in pop up tents to plush motor homes, fans return to our Jamboree campgrounds. They come for the music, the food, the fun, the drink and the friendships they’ve built with Jamboree fans from far and wide. Some fans calling it camping but most of our fans call it home!
