Jam in the Valley has approximately 1,200 on-site "primitive" camping spaces. Most of the campground areas are "open-spaced" with rolling fields and limited gravel road access. There are no electrical or water connections or dump stations available. Each site is roughly measured out to be 16ft x 45ft (720sq. feet) or roughly equal to 720sq feet. We are currently trying to grant more square footage, so some sites may be larger.
Timbuktu and Back 40 camping sites are 20ft x 50ft.
Only one vehicle per campsite is allowed to park at campsites. Any Visitor planning on staying overnight/for the weekend must be wearing a valid JiTV wristband after 7pm and before noon. Ticketed Visitors must park their vehicles in the Campground Visitor's Parking Lot. A nominal fee will be charged. Vehicles parked overnight in the Concert Parking Lot will be towed at the vehicle owner's expense.
All persons camping in or utilizing Jam in the Valley campground
facilities do so at their own risk.

Large group camping is a convenience that Jam in the Valley provides. If you purchase 6 or more camping packages, you are automatically considered a large group.
Large group camping ensures that your group will be able to camp on consecutive sites as long as space permits. If space is limited, your group will have to load individually, but can do so during Large Group loading hours which will help keep your group together as best as possible.
Large group campers will be allowed to come in a few days earlier than the general camping public to start set up. We allow this so that we can ease the process of getting 1,200 campsites loaded as the concert draws near.
The person's name on the purchase of large group camping will be the "captain" of the group. Jam in the Valley staff will contact the captain and work on your arrangements.
To ensure that you keep your large group sites from year to year, please join the Large Group License Program. You will be contacted via mail with information about licensing your large group after camping at JiTV for one year.

To keep your reserved space, camping units which leave the site must make arrangements with Jam in the Valley campground management prior to leaving. Failure to do so could result in that camping space being lost to another camper.
Jam in the Valley reserves the right to reuse any space left unattended overnight without a permitted camper. Signs or staking of areas is OK but you must take your staking and signage home with you. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Campers losing their space forfeit all camping privileges without refund. Any person possessing counterfeit camping permit tags or vehicle passes will be ejected without refund and may be subject to prosecution.
All tents will be required to have an official "Jam in the Valley" camping tag attached at all times to the outside zipper pull or where suitable and visible. Each tent found on a permitted site that does not have an official tag will be charged the full gate price for camping. No exceptions will be made.
Two small or medium size tents or one large tent will be permitted per campsite. For sites with two small/medium tents, one camping tag will be sufficient provided it is visible from the access road. Only one car per site.Back to Top

Full shuttle service resumes immediately after the concert on Friday night and after the fireworks show on Saturday night, until it is no longer needed. All persons walking or riding the golf cart shuttles do so at their own risk.
Shuttle service is intended to service those who are truly in need of assistance getting to and from the concert venue. If you are able bodied, please defer to those who need assistance before accepting a shuttle ride.
