Directions - 10298 OK 10TAHLEQUAHOK
Camping - Tickets include primitive tent camping for Thursday Friday and Saturday! Camping upgrades to an electric site or full RV sites are available but limited. If you would like to upgrade to an electric or RV site please contact Peyton's Place for pricing and availability. But also know that many of these sites have been reserved for consecutive years. If the kind of site you want isn’t available then your best bet is to ask if you can be on the list if one becomes available. If you have not reserved an electric campsite please don't set up at one.. or you will be asked to tear down and move your camp.
Early Arrival - You are welcome to arrive at Peyton's Place to set up camp a day, week or month early but you will need to check in at the office when you arrive and you will be expected to pay normal rates for any extra days camping. Your ticket covers you for Thursday Friday and Saturday camping (not electric or RV sites).
Dogs - Illinois River Jam is dog friendly! We want you to bring your canine camping buddy but please be considerate of other campers and other dogs. If your dog is going to bark at everything that moves all night long then it's probably best you don't bring him/her along.
Food and Drink - IRJ is always BYOB and bring your own food. This is a camping event so plan to bring anything you would want or need with you. We do not have beer/food vendors at IRJ because $12 beers are not in the spirit of our party. There is a small general store at Peyton's Place for ice, water, beer, snacks and basic camping needs as well.
Music - Music is all on one stage under the big tent from 6pm-11pm on Thursday Friday and Saturday. Rain or shine! We take pride in making this festival focused on music so ask that if you are under the tent, please respect the performers and the people around you by LISTENING and enjoying these great musicians. If you need to catch up with some buddies or if your own loud voice is what you like to hear then please enjoy it loudly anywhere on the huge property other than under the tent:)
The River - The campground and stage is right on the banks of the Illinois River. So definitly skip some rocks, go for a dip or drop in a line during the day! Float trips are available at Peyton's Place and we highly recommend you enjoy one while you are there. Pro Tips: Start early and 6 miles is the correct choice.
Vending - We do not have any formal vendors at Illinois River Jam. If you have a small setup of arts, crafts, handmade goods please feel free to bring them and sell them from you’re campsite! What you can’t do is set up a commerce tent anywhere near the stage. No commercial trucks, trailers, generators etc..
Lastly our policy is be cool, be friendly and be chill. We strictly enforce this policy by example. If you or anyone in your party is not following these basic rules, is too intoxicated or especially is distracting from the show they will be asked to leave.
