on the Ranch is probably the best way to experience the
magic of the Kerrville Music Festivals. Some of the best
music can be heard in the campgrounds 24-hours-a-day. We
have 20 acres of scenic and rustic Hill Country campgrounds
within walking distance of the outdoor theater and Chapel
Hill. We invite both tent and RV campers.
beer, soft drinks, coffee, and ice are available in the
campgrounds at the Kerr-try Store and the Kerr-Café.
Warm showers and clean (albeit primitive) toilet facilities are located
throughout the campgrounds. Firewood is usually available.
PETS are allowed on the Ranch during the festival.
NO DRUMS are allowed during the festival.
NO FIREARMS OR CONCEALED WEAPONS!
STEREOS OR RECORDED MUSIC are allowed to be played

The campgrounds are somewhat primitive (as compared to a
State Park), but are pleasurable if you are prepared. Reservations
are not needed for tent camping as there are no designated
camp sites for tents. You simply set up anywhere in the
campgrounds where you find an inviting space and where you
feel comfortable. It can get a little “cozy”
in the campgrounds on the weekends, but the Quiet Valley
Ranch is one of the easiest places in the world to make
new friends. Simply respect each other and you will be in
for the time of you life.
is suggested that you bring some sort of erectable shade,
such as a canopy, since you never know if you will be able
to secure a spot with trees. The water on the ranch is potable,
but quite hard. You should therefore bring your own drinking
water. Other than the items mentioned above, you are free
to bring pretty much what-ever camping/cooking gear makes
is fairly rugged Hill Country terrain so dress comfortably.
Shorts, t-shirts, a hat, and outdoor shoes usually do the
trick. Be prepared for rain! Afternoon thundershowers are
not uncommon. Some good rain gear, both for your camp site
and for your body can make a big difference!
Electric & Water Hook-Ups
There is a series of free-standing electric & water hook-ups
scattered around the campground. These are available on a
first-come first-served basis. Not all electrical plug-ins
will accommodate a/c's; there are only about 20 hook-ups
with a/c capabilities. An Electric Permit is $5/day for a
plug or $10/day for a plug with an A/C hooked up. Staff
discounts are available. If you wish to leave a hose
connected to a spigot, please provide a "Y" so that others
may get water.
Campground access fees are included with every
festival ticket. You will be
issued a festival wristband at the Ticket Booth for no
additional charge. You must have a valid festival wristband
in order to enter ANY festival or ranch gate during the festival.
Parking Lot fees are included in the price of
in the Campgrounds
In order to have as much room for tents as possible, we
try to restrict the number of vehicles in the campgrounds.
For this reason, we charge $20 per day to keep your vehicle
(other than sleeper vehicles – see below) in the campgrounds.
You would, however, be able to take your car into the
campgrounds (with a $20 refundable cash deposit) and drop off
your gear and then park in the parking meadow (just
about 100 yards away from the campground gate).
Folks who intend on sleeping in their RV, trailer (or
other vehicle such as van, truck with camper shell,
etc.) in the campground, require a Sleeper Vehicle Permit. At
the Mixmaster Station at the
campground entrance, a Sleeper Vehicle Permit may be
purchased for a flat $20 (in addition to your
festival tickets). It is a $20 flat fee, regardless of the length of
your stay, until you exit the campground. No additional camping charges would be
collected provided your vehicle doesn't leave the ranch
as it is an additional $20 for EACH re-entry. Sleeper
vehicles are, for the most part, to be considered as
We have 81 RV sites in the campgrounds. 56 of them have
full hook-ups and are $30-$35 per day during the festival. The
remaining 24 sites have water and electricity only and are
$25 per day. There is a big demand for these sites during
the festival so advance reservations and restrictions apply.

fires should be within fire rings, bbq grills or outdoor
type fireplaces. LARGE BONFIRES ARE NOT ALLOWED! Fires are
not allowed during periods of excessive drought or when Kerr
County has issued a county wide burn ban. During a
burn ban, only charcoal fires in bbq grills are allowed.
Gathering firewood on the property is not permitted.
limited amount of firewood is available and can usually
found near the Kerr-try store. If you think you need a lot
of wood, please bring your own. Do not burn fires under
trees, branches or next to wooden structures. Fires MUST be
attended at all times and must be completely extinguished
before retiring for the night or leaving the campsite. Please
share fires when possible, its more fun that way anyway.
