Alpine Valley Camping Info and Checklist

Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin, is home to more than 35,000 people during the summer months.  Travelers come from East and West, across valleys and plains, by plane, car and even ferry, to see their favorite bands, party in the parking lot, and reminisce to a soundtrack by their favorite band amidst the blue sky and cornfields of Wisconsin.

For those that travel from afar and need camping information, here is a list I’ve compiled to show your many, many camping options.  If there are more, PLEASE let me know!  Also, reviews in the comments would be outstanding.  Feel free to link this post wherever you please.

For hotel options, check the following cities:


*East Troy (very limited)
*Delavan
*Lake Geneva
*Elkhorn
*Burlington
*Mukwonago
*Waterford
*Waukesha


Without further ado, your camping options!


*Update 01/2011 – news has spread that Alpine will be turning their Green Lot into an on-site campground for 2011. This article states the following:

*Regulations would include:

Of all the local campgrounds, Richard Bong State Park remains the most popular. The other three that I hear about consistently are Rome Riverside, Kettle Moraine, and Snug Harbor.

Some sites take reservations, others are first-come-first-serve, some change their policy just for large concert events. It’s best to check their website or give them a call.
