Hi Guys, I'm planning to arrive to premier camping Thursday night or possibly Friday morning around 10-11ish. If I did arrive on Friday would it be a bad idea for line-ups, spot selection etc? I'm only worried about arriving Thursday night because it will suck to set up tents in the dark...
Also, in premier do you park your car next to your tent? I'm thinking for tarp set up, storage etc.
I've been searching the posts and can't find the answer to this specific to premier camping.
Getting Thursday night would be ok if you could manage to set stuff up in the relative dark. There's no advantage to getting there earlier besides being there earlier and spending more time there. That's a pretty big advantage though. Line ups on friday morning are not a big deal. The big lines are caused by people getting off work on friday and then driving there, making the lines huge around dinnertime to 11pm.
Thursday night typically has the largest lines of the weekend, I've waited an average of 2 hours the past three years on Silica Rd. just waiting to get into the campground. Friday morning probably wouldn't be too bad, since people that took Friday off will probably have already arrived, and those working Friday won't be there yet.
