This month, the Blissfest Music Organization achieved a goal that has been in the works for a decade: opening a campground on the 40 acres of Bliss Township.

The new venture resulted from the group having postponed its famous music festival, typically held in July, for the second year consecutively because of the COVID-19 epidemic. Although the festival, which runs for a weekend, is the main focal point and the primary source of revenue for Blissfest, the campground will allow the group to make more use of its grounds and diversify its revenue sources, according to Cindy McSurely, Blissfest executive director.

The idea has been in the making for more than the past couple of years. McSurely stated that the group received its first approval for the camping plan from the county about ten years ago.

The property is comprised of 35 rustic camping sites and three cabins that are small with two domes. Twenty-five of the sites is drive-in campsites, open to tents and RVs without electric hookups or running water. A different section, called “Hardwood Haven,” consists of 10 campsites which are walk-in only and are therefore only accessible to tents.

The campsite has a solar shower facility, portable toilets, and occasionally, on-site events align with the Blissfest mission.

The campground is accepting reservations now, but potential guests have only a short time frame to plan their trip this year. The campground will be open for the duration of the color season and will close in October. 24.

When it opens again next year, guests will be able to start booking reservations as early as January, and the first time openings are scheduled for May. The facility will be closed during the two weeks preceding Blissfest to allow for the setup for the event and removal.
