In early August, SoulFest, a Christian music and teaching festival, is held at Gunstock. Additional sites are created for use during the festival:
SoulFest Campside: The majority of these sites are located within the gates of our campground. These sites are appropriate for either tent camping or for trailers that do not require hook-up.
