If you’re a Country Thunder Music Festival novice, it’s safe to say that you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the logistics involved in attending these major festivals. Deciding whether you should camp, glamp or stay in a nearby hotel is a big decision for some, but not us. We are partial to staying in a Cruise America RV rental, because of the many positives to RV camping at the events.
 
Nearly all of Country Thunder’s locations offer onsite campgrounds that are convenient and just as exciting as the festival. Below is a quick guide to the best RV camping spots for Country Thunder events.

Arizona

 
Country Thunder in Florence, Arizona is very welcoming to onsite campers. While the amenities are not as extensive as other sites, they are enough to make for a very pleasant experience. There is even a designated family-friendly site within its Roadrunner campground.
 
Time of Year:             March

Campsite Sizes:        19ft x 40ft (standard), 25ft x 45ft (premier)

Pricing:                       Not listed

Hookups:                    Standard campsites do not offer any hookup options. If you prefer your own restroom, shower and electrical power, you’ll need a self-contained RV rental. Premier campsites do offer water and electrical hookups.

Additional Perks:        All campsites are within walking distance to the concerts. Community showers (for a nominal fee) and restrooms are available if you don’t have them in your RV. Service trucks are also available onsite to fill and pump water tanks at an additional cost.

Wisconsin

 
Twin Lakes is home to Country Thunder Wisconsin and also hosts onsite camping. Like Arizona, it is important to note that most RV camping spots here do not offer hookups. A self-contained Cruise America RV is a great option for this event.
 
Time of Year:             July

Campsite Sizes:        19ft x 40ft

Pricing:                       $150+

Hookups:                    Most campsites are considered primitive, meaning there are no water or power hookups. Upgraded campsites can be purchased with these amenities, but they sell out quickly!

Additional Perks:        All campsites are within walking distance to the concerts. Community bathrooms and showers are available for campers. A portable toilet can be reserved for your campsite at an additional charge.
