From website -

The Quiet Valley Ranch is a 50-acre ranch in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country, just 9 miles south of the resort town of Kerrville on TX Hwy 16. Home of the world famous Kerrville Folk Festival, the Quiet Valley Ranch is open year-round for camping.

Half of the QV Ranch is for tent and/or RV camping. The other half consists of the big outdoor theater, backstage and parking areas. We have 82 RV hook-up sites, some with water/electricity/sewer, and some with water and electricity only. We also have lots of space for primitive tent camping.

More than just the place where the Kerrville Music Festivals are located, the QV Ranch is a beautiful place to come out, relax, and count the stars. You can even rent the QV Ranch for your own event. The ranch can accommodate up to 5000 people. It’s the perfect place for events such as outdoor concerts, retreats, and even re-enactor gatherings.
