MACK, Colo. (KKCO) - Any Country Jam fan knows that part of the fun is getting the full experience, and part of the full experience is checking out the campgrounds.

Whether you're pitching a tent, riding through in your RV, or just passing through on foot, the campgrounds are a must-see part of Major Mortgage Country Jam. And this year, they've even upped the camping ante.

After 21 years in Colorado, and 18 years at the Country Jam Ranch, the largest music fest across four states has brought out an even larger crowd this year to the hottest spot on the ranch: The campgrounds.

"We have nearly 200 acres of camping facility here,” says Julie Shafer, director of marketing and promotions for Major Mortgage Country Jam and Rock Jam. "This is our largest year ever for camping.”

A high demand meant Country Jam needed to grow.

"We’ve expanded and added a new camping area called our premiere campsites,” she says.

The premiere perk? Location, location, location.

"Premiere camping sits adjacent to gates,” says Shafer. "You don't have to walk very far at all in order to get to your campsite.”

They still have the general admission campgrounds, but with the hike from the main stage back to camp, they’ve added shuttle services in recent years to help Country Jammers even more.

"So they don't have to trudge a half mile to get back and forth,” says Shafer.

Because you never know what you'll forget at home, the campgrounds are fully stocked to keep campers going strong with a full service convenience store right on the ranch.

"It’s our good folks, good sponsors from Bradley Sinclair that are out there,” says Shafer. "They have everything from ice to the breakfast foods in the morning, to anything you could need for your camping experience."

To get the full camping experience, it's important to make sure you're stocked up with plenty of water and sunscreen, so you can keep going strong throughout the four day music fest.

Camp space is still available. For more information visit
