About Camping

Your Country Stampede experience isn’t complete without taking up residence in one of our campground locations for the weekend. The campgrounds at Stampede have become as legendary as the festival itself. Thousands of festival attendees come together in a friendly and exciting atmosphere, setting up a community that becomes one of the largest towns in Kansas, a town that is committed only to having a good time!

Please Note: Anybody wishing to enter the campgrounds must possess either a four-day general admission, Weekend Reserved, or Weekend VIP ticket.

Come Early!

Many campers show up in advance to reclaim their same campsite year after year, chilling out until the big event starts.
