One of the most famous Camp Meetings occurs at Cane Ridge, Kentucky. This lead to the "Great Religious Revival of the American West," sometimes known simply as the Western Great Revival.

Military officers estimate 20,000 to 30,000 attend this Camp Meeting traveling on foot, horseback, or by wagon.

It's probably the largest Camp Meeting ever, with Presbyterians, Baptists, and Methodists all worshipping together. This Camp Meeting is so important that it will come to be regarded as practically identical with the larger Great Revival.
