Talking Tex Ren Fest!

We spent this past weekend camping at the Texas Renaissance Festival! We usually go to the festival every year, but this was the first weekend we camped there. We dry camped in the quiet camping area.

It was pure PERFECTION!!! If you have never been camping at the Tex Ren Fest, I HIGHLY recommend it!!! The weekend couldn't have been more perfect!

Here is all the camping info: The Fields of New Market Campground | Texas Renaissance Festival

There is "main" camping and "quiet/family" camping. We stayed in the quiet/family area, within walking distance of the flush toilets and the new shower house.

We go often and are planning a trip in the next few weeks (when it cools off a bit more). We haven't been since they moved the camping to a new area. Could you tell me what the ground is like in the Quiet area? Is it pretty hard and flat, or soft with ruts, etc. I don't want my big 5er to get stuck in soft soil. Thanks!

The camping information tells you that the Quiet campground is on either side of the entrance road off of Hwy 302. So use Google Maps to find TRF, turn on the satellite view, and you can see the campgrounds next to the road from Hwy 302.

The new quiet area is what used to be the King's Orchard. Almost doubled the size last year. It's supposed to be part of a three year expansion. They planted a lot of trees in the new area last year, but it'll take years for it to make noticeable shade. The ground is just as hard as all the rest of the place, I wouldn't worry about getting stuck. I've been going since 1999 and camping for the last four years. There is still noise in the quiet area (from the main area), but it's not bad. The closer you get to "ground zero" the more you have to deal with obnoxious drunk idiots..so I usually set up right along the boundary between the two areas. That way I can walk over a be a drunk idiot myself, then go back and actually sleep when I want to.
