The Ossipee Valley Music Festival offers overnight camping, and is situated close to towns with hotels and vacation rentals. The festival grounds currently offers 200 RV sites (14x40') with 30 amp hookups, as well as flush toilets and a new 6-shower showerhouse. In 2024 we are pleased to offer additional camping at the woodland and river-view campsites at Crooked River, our new expansion on the banks of the Ossipee River.
Tent camping is first come first serve and SELLS OUT. In 2023 it sold out on Friday, we may sell out of camping prior to the festival this year.
Tent camping is FREE during the three nights of the festival (Thursday-Saturday nights)
The gates open prior to the festival Sunday at noon. Pre-festival camping is $40/night/site.
Car camping is allowed but if you are not using your car as a sleeping or cooking space we do ask that you park in a designated area.
Tent campsites do not have electricity. Potable water is available at frequent spigots.
RVs & Hookups
On-Grid campsites (which offer water and electric) are limited to 200 sites and sell out before the festival starts. Starting in 2024 you can purchase a full week (Sun-Sun) site online. You do not choose your site online, that is still first come first serve.
Besides these weeklong sites, you cannot reserve sites in advance, they are first come, first serve. No exceptions, sorry!
RV sites are $40/night/site and $45/night/site pre-festival.
Generators are allowed in specific areas, and only allowed between 9am-9pm.
We are not able to reserve campsites, we recommend arriving by Wednesday prior to the festival to secure a site.

All campsites at the Ossipee Fairgrounds have walkable access to basic amenities such as flush toilets and hot showers. Portapotties are available within close proximity to all sites, and are cleaned 2-3x per DAY! In 2024 we will have a brand new six shower showerhouse. There is no WIFI or big 'charging station' on site, but there are local businesses you can support while you reconnect with the outside world. There is a designated "quiet camping" area where no generators or field picking is allowed, and there are specific areas where things are never quiet! All campsites are handicap accessible--there are paved acccess roads throughout the fairgrounds and handicap restrooms on site as well.
Our new Crooked River sites are accessible by car on an unpaved dirt road, there will be portapotties, and the showers will be approximately a quarter mile walk from the furthest campsite.
