The 7th Annual Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival will take place on in June 2-5, 2011 at Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas. That's right- Wakarusa will take place on top of a mountain that's surrounded by streams, waterfalls, swimming holes and scenic float rivers. Mulberry Mountain is not only on private land, but it has all the amenities of a well developed campground. Quite simply, if you haven't been to Mulberry Mountain, it is one of the very best festival sites we have ever seen.
