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 on-site 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 in 2022 and 2023.
