The Blue Ox Music Festival in Eau Claire, Wisconsin takes place at The Pines Music Park (formally Whispering Pines Campground) which features 120 acres of wooded camping situated around a centralized concert area. We can accommodate many different types of campers, whether one is looking for a place to hook up their RV and enjoy the comforts of home, a more rustic tent camping experience, or arriving to a pre-set Glamping site, there is truly something for everyone.

RV Camping: If you plan to bring an RV, pull behind, or pop-up camper you will need to purchase a RESERVED site. The reserved campsites are available as an add-on to your admissions ticket. Choose between Electric, Pines, Fields, Prairie, or Family section of our campground. All vehicles over 20’ LONG REQUIRE A RESERVED SITE. 

Unreserved Tent Camping is included with your 3-day, 2-day and 1-day Saturday GA ticket. (Sites are first come first served). Areas include: GA, GA Quiet or Quiet Family camping.

Campground Amenities Include:

  • A permanent shower building (FREE to all campers).
  • A camp store offering firewood and ice.
  • Grills are allowed in the campgrounds but are not provided.
  • Fire rings are available in limited quantities throughout the campgrounds. We do NOT sell fire rings or take reservations/special requests for them. We suggest that you bring your own fire ring if you MUST have your OWN campfire.
