Camping at Rhythms on the Rio

The festival site has very generous sized camping area with spots for 350 camping/RV spots. A grassy field camping site is just a short walk to the festival grounds while bordering the Rio Grande River. River sites are limited and will be first come first serve. Campground opens Friday at 8:00 am. We can accommodate RV’s, but all sites are PRIMITIVE. We ask everyone to respect their neighbors with no music from your cars or radios so everyone can enjoy a peaceful evening after the festival.

Generators: In the past we have not allowed generator use. However, interest for their use has increased and we would like to allow generators on a limited, trial basis this year. With that being said we would like generator use to be limited, NO generator use between the hours of 10:00 pm – 8:00 am. While we cannot expect everyone to have the newest and quietest generator, we may have to address those that are spewing fumes and causing concern for everyone around them. We want everyone to enjoy their time here at the Rhythms on the Rio. We ask that everyone be respectful, be mindful and above all love their neighbor!

Family Camping Area: Please let camping attendant know if you would like to be placed away from the camping stage. This will allow for a quiet evening at the opposite end of the field of the campground stage. Music will still be audible from the campground stage even though we are trying to place the family area in a remote location.

Campfires on Site: Sorry, no campfires allowed in the on-site camping area.

Unlawful Entry to Campground: DO NOT sneak into the Camping Area. ROTR has an agreement with the South Fork Police Department whereas anyone caught sneaking into the Festival or found on the Festival grounds without proper credentials (ie proper wristband, etc) will be escorted out of the Festival and charged with trespassing. We don’t want to harsh any ones mellow, but we need to do this to limit our liability. All who attend must agree to be responsible for themselves and their actions, and can hold the South Fork Music Association and ROTR harmless for any stupid action on their part resulting in injury, or god forbid worse. You do this when purchasing your ticket and accepting your wristband for entry. In order for this event to succeed and continue we really need your support. If you see someone attempting to sneak in or someone inside the festival grounds without a proper wristband, please alert a Security Staff member.

“Rhythms On The Rio is now my favorite festival. On the banks of the Rio Grande River, grass field camping and all night campsite picking circles, what’s not to love?”
