Known as “Glamping,” glamorous camping is a hot new trend in weddings. Glamping at The Music Camp is an over-the-top experience you will cherish forever. Imagine taking in the beauty of the Pacolet River from your large white canvas wall tent perched on a massive platform high above the rapids.

Lavish Camping on Your Wedding Night

The inside of your tent will be carpeted, the walls and ceiling draped in decorative fabrics. Each tent is beautifully appointed in plush furniture and contains all the refinements of an upscale hotel suite. Relax with your new spouse on the observation deck outside, or plunge into your queen size bed with plush thread count, and let the soothing rapids lull you to sleep.

A Morning to Remember

The Pearl, our newly constructed Gypsy Wagon, is just a few steps from the tent, equipped with a flushing toilet and an adjacent hot shower. Wake up in the morning and enjoy a short stroll to The Elizabeth Cotten Stage for fresh coffee and tea, local baked goods, and an enticing selection of seasonal fruit.


Offer your guests an experience to cherish, where they can unwind and bond with friends and family without the expense of booking a hotel. The Music Camp has plenty of riverfront campsites for each of your guests to enjoy a private spot shaded by trees next to the soothing river.
