Yeah, good spot is relative as they just throw you in there. I guess you definitely won't be in overflow. I would plan on getting there when or slightly before the gates open and there will be less of a line.
so you peeps are saying that even though it's premium camping they assign you spots? you can't just go pick a spot closest to the entrance as possible?
As close to the entrance as possible isn't really going to put you that much closer to the venue. The hike from camping to the venue is a trek (albeit a fun trek) no matter where you are. The event is 1/4 the size of a festival the size of Coachella so even the worst spots aren't that far back.
I've never done premier camping but I seem to remember there being a shuttle? I may be making that up but it's a possibility that it exists. Otherwise you're looking at a 10-15 minute walk to the venue.
The spot can matter. You want to be right on the road? Right on the fence to General Camping? Next to a "Thunder Closet" ? Down the hill a little to reduce the noise from General? Close to the shuttle pickup? Lots of options. Depends on what works for you.
There's a shuttle but you have to walk to the back of the parking lot and then usually wait 10 minutes or so. It's not any faster than the walk back to normal camping but it has the added advantage of allowing you to collapse in the grass while you wait.
Nothing but good spots at Wildhorse. Passes still available!
So how does wild horse work... They shuttle you?
The shuttle picks you up at the entrance of wildhorse and takes you to the grassy area in front of the gates. It's a 2minute walk to the gates from there. The best part is arriving home at the end of the night...when the bus gets off, everybody is eating and partying at the food stand and you order garlic fries and a wild burger and continue to drink and party with everybody getting off the bus.
Also, I've never had to wait for a wildhorse shuttle. There are two of them in the morning and evening.
