We were given a gigantic amount of space, especially compared to the last two years. The camping being included with the festival pass really helped keep out the people there just to hang out and fill up our space. There were still reports of people jumping in tents looking for items to steal, but for the most part, keeping your valuables locked in your car easily combats this. Best of all, I didn't see one pregnant woman.
Last year was actually the first year that we had any issues with the camping (Out of the past four). We had our cooler stolen with about half of a thirty rack of beer and our hamburger meat and eggs. We didn't really care about the beer being stolen since we blamed that on ourselves for not putting it into our car, but they really had to steal our hamburger meat and eggs?
Our neighbors on one side also had their tent slashed open (too lazy to use the zipper?) and everything in their tent was trashed. And our neighbors on the other side had some pot stolen.
Maybe it was just an isolated incident but personally last year was the worst stealing and slashing I've encountered there.

I found that if I left no valuables out we had no issues. Left the cooler in the car and any valuables not brought inside were left in the car. Souly got her tent slashed but nothing was stolen. We had none of that.
When we got there we went balls out to get out and establish enough room for our huge group (we had like seven tents to set up for various people) but we did not have any issues and had a sufficient amount of space. We had enough room for our canopy as well. And like HG said, by some wonderful stroke of luck we were camped within moments of Gunther, Pea and Fox, Friendly, Souly, and even little Snorlax. It was the most fun I have ever had at the campgrounds.

Man we were pretty faced by the time we stumbled over to your little encampment. There were so many of us milling around that I couldn't keep track of us all.
Hilarious: about half a dozen of us found the absolute darkest corner of the campground and stood talking in a circle where we couldn't see each others' faces. It couldn't have been any more tragic if each of us had actually said 'Post Reply' after everything we said.

So I am on prednisone right now because I have a bronchial infection and while I already would have felt like a tool on a normal day, I seriously feel so bad and I like I am terrible and I am going to fly to Alaska and cry on Gibbons' door step until he forgives me and gives me a hug.
