The Complete WE Fest Experience
Camping at WE Fest
WE Fest campers come in all ages and therefore have very different camping styles; we have college kids in pup tents, retirees in Air Stream trailers and everything in between. Their shared love of country music allows for peaceful coexistence among the diversity of people in the campgrounds.
At WE Fest, we provide designated areas for all our campers, including those who wish to go to sleep after the show, and those who would like to prolong the party. While all campgrounds have a 2:00 a.m. noise curfew, some campgrounds are more active than others after that hour. Please take some time to read all of the campground descriptions, and select that campground that best matches your lifestyle.
Want to come early? Purchase an Early Camp Arrival pass! Early Camp Arrival passes are available for both General Admission and VIP campgrounds. Please note: 24-hour check-in is no longer available. Please find open to close hours for Early Camp Arrival by clicking here. Campers arriving outside of the those hours will not be allowed on the campgrounds.
We always like to remind you that if you want to camp with friends or family, and you’re traveling in separate vehicles, you should plan to arrive together. Campers are guided to the next available campsite, and there is not an option to save a campsite.
Selecting Your Campsite
Different Campgrounds for All Lifestyles
Over the years we’ve learned that some people like to party a little in the campgrounds, some people like to party a lot, and some people just want to get a good night’s sleep. So we’ve set up a system that sorts people out so everyone gets the experience they want.
We’ve designated Lake Sallie and Northwoods campgrounds for families, with strictly enforced noise curfews. If you like to get some shut-eye, purchase a permit in those campgrounds. We’ve also made age recommendations for the other campgrounds, on the theory that the younger you are, the later you like to stay up. To select the campground that fits your lifestyle, whatever your age, choose an option below to find the campground for you.
