This review comes from the viewpoint of a previously non-country fan that has spent Wednesday through Monday at Country Thunder with family & friends for the first time.
The camping experience here is great and includes many attractions such as; stripper poles, slip-n-slides, whiskey & beer waterfalls and giant see-saws just to name a few. Most of the people are very friendly and in a happy, well inebriated state most of the time. The escape that Country Thunder offers goes beyond country music, it's stage shows or any of the attractions offered. If you allow it, Country Thunder will transform your time there into a time of excitement and enjoyment far beyond the daily grind that you're hoping to escape from.
The concerts we saw, (except for the Friday night Jason Aldean show) that suffered from some serious sound issues were top notch. Since I've never been a country music fan I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed the Big & Rich, Toby Keith and Luke Brian shows as much as I did. I have always enjoyed live music, but the performances and content really kept us wanting more. The audience sang along as we listened to the country labeled content that in reality has more of a rock-n-roll content than most other music genres.
Even if you're not a country fan get an RV and reserve your spot with friends and family in the grass at Country Thunder. Of course you'll need to bring lots of your favorite beverages for yourself and others if you like to share because you'll have plenty of new friends to share it with while you're visiting other camps in the compound.
I'll close this review with the old tried and true phrase that has survived the ages; "You only live once."
