Camping Info

Primitive Camping
Your 3-day event ticket includes primitive camping from 8 AM Local Time on Friday, October 25th until Noon Local Time on Monday, October 28th.  Your 4-day event ticket includes primitive camping from 8 AM Local Time on Thursday, October 24th until Noon Local time on Monday, October 28th.  You may primitive camp in any designated area, but not in the Festival Area, areas of travel, the end of River Road, or Upgraded Camping or Reserved Camping sites.  During your stay, Camp Hosts will be located throughout the Park.  Please reach out to one of them should you have any questions or concerns.

ADA Camping
The Park offers ADA Camping near the entrance to the Loop Camping Area.  Park Handicap Escorts are available to help you. You should contact the Promoter if you have any ADA special needs or concerns.

Reserved Camping
If you had a Reserved Campsite in 2018, you have 30 days from the date tickets go on sale or July 15th, to reserve and pay for the same site. After that, those sites will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park ® features many upgraded campsites with water and electric service. The Electrical Wattage varies from 20 Amperage (AMP), which can service a household plug; to 30 Amp (small Pop Up Trailer or Pull Behind RV) and up to 50 Amp (larger RV).  These sites are located throughout the Park.  Click Here to make a selection.

Reserved Camping is also referred to as Upgraded Camping:  the terms are synonymous.   Reserved Camping is from Thursday, October 24th at 8 AM local time until Noon local time, on Monday, October 28th for Guests who have purchased the 4-Day Festival Ticket.  Guests who purchase Reserved Camping and who also purchase a 4-Day Festival Ticket may arrive on Thursday.  Guests who purchase a 3-Day Festival Ticket and who also purchase an Upgraded Campsite, may not arrive prior to Friday 8 AM Local Time without first purchasing a 4 Day Festival Ticket upgrade.

A Reserved Camping ticket includes: one camping site to be selected by the Park; 4 camp passes to allow up to four guests to camp in the reserved site; and one Car Pass.  We encourage you and your guests to car pool to the site. So long as the guest who purchases the reserved camping also purchases a 4-day Festival ticket, the other three guests camping on that site can either purchase 3-day or 4-day Festival tickets and camp according to the ticket type they purchased.  In other words, if the guest arrives on Thursday, they must have purchased a 4-day Festival ticket.

Tickets will be released about 30 days prior to the show.  You must bring them to the Box Office/Festival Credentialing Area for check-in along with your driver’s license, or other government-issued photo identification.

If you have reserved a campsite, but members of your party are going to be arriving prior to your arrival, then you need to make sure that their names are listed on your order.  Please call the Park Office at 386-364-1683 to include all names in your camping party in your order.  Otherwise, your guests will have to wait until your arrival to receive their upgraded camping

If you are camping on a Reserved Site for the First Time, please call the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park ® Office at 386-364-1683.  A Customer Service Representative will help you to locate an ideal Reserved Camp Site.

(Dry or Primitive) RV Camping
If you do not need water or electrical power for your recreational vehicle, you may also purchase a 4-day “DRY RV” camping pass.  This is an RV Pass for your recreational vehicle and applies to any RV with a steering wheel, or any camper or utility trailer pulled behind a vehicle.  You must store all waste in your RV until after the Festival, and pump out service may be available. All dry RV campsites will be assigned pending size of unit with the largest site being a 20’ x 60’ so to accommodate the larger class A rigs.  All personal items, (e.g., vehicles, canopy, trailers) must fit within the perimeter of your site.  This includes you and any and all guests camping with you.

Pets/Service Animals
PETS  – We love pets, but PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED !!! There are a limited number of pet boarding facilities in Live Oak, you should call ahead if you cannot find a pet sitter where you reside.

We do welcome and support all persons with disabilities that rely on a trained service animal.  We DO NOT support pets that are misrepresented as service animals.  Florida law makes it a misdemeanor to misrepresent a service animal, Section 413.08 (9) Florida Statutes.  This law will be strictly enforced.  So please leave your pet or “emotional support” animal at home.

Florida Statutes defines “Service Animal” as follows (emphasis supplied):

“Service animal” means an animal that is trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. The work done or tasks performed must be directly related to the individual’s disability and may include, but are not limited to, guiding an individual who is visually impaired or blind, alerting an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing, pulling a wheelchair, assisting with mobility or balance, alerting and protecting an individual who is having a seizure, retrieving objects, alerting an individual to the presence of allergens, providing physical support and assistance with balance and stability to an individual with a mobility disability, helping an individual with a psychiatric or neurological disability by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors, reminding an individual with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming an individual with posttraumatic stress disorder during an anxiety attack, or doing other specific work or performing other special tasks. A service animal is not a pet. For purposes of subsections (2), (3), and (4), the term “service animal” is limited to a dog or miniature horse. The crime-deterrent effect of an animal’s presence and the provision of emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship do not constitute work or tasks for purposes of this definition.

Please note Emotional support or comfort animals are not considered service animals under the State law, nor are they considered “service animals” under Federal law – the ADA.

Service Animal Owners must follow these simple guidelines:

  1. All Service animals must be registered before they enter the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park ®.  IN ORDER TO BE REGISTERED, THE DOG MUST HAVE AND WEAR A CURRENT ANTI-RABIES VACCINATION TAG!!!!!

  2. Service animals must be accompanied by the handler with the disability at all times;

  3. Service animals must be under the control and supervision of their handler at all times.

  4. Service animals shall not be left unattended under any circumstances.

  5. Handlers are required to be prepared for, and clean-up after, their animals at all times.

  6. Park Management reserves the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the campgrounds or venues if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or in violation of these policies.
