Has anyone ever stayed here? My brother, a friend, and I are not interested in Gorge camping after last year. We always took premier camping and last year was kind of a raw deal unless you were up at like 5 am. So, just wondering, if anyone has stayed there, opinions?
i've heard its great. shuttle back and forth a little less noisy/trashy. nice bathrooms (showers too iirc might be a lie) and basically everyone who stays there is avoiding the masses of gorge camping. i've tried multiple times to convince my friends to stay there rather then the gorge camping but they enjoy the atmosphere.
Premier camping for Sasquatch last year was a joke. We won't be doing that again. Debating whether to camp at Wildhorse or get a hotel. I'd like to hear from someone who's stayed at Wildhorse. I'm wondering how the showers are and if their shuttle service is any good.
Ive camped there the last two years. this will be my 3rd.
-4 showers,clean,a samll line sometimes mostly during the day, but its not a bad wait. -deli/cafe type deal..good food day or night.(check website for menu. -free coffee in the am -they sell ice -people party all day, playing games etc...then at night its quite,very easy to sleep -crowded,but not crazy lots of space. -mostly canadians -shuttle runs all day and night.
I already have my camping spot there so I have no problem letting you know that it is leagues better than the normal camping and although I've never stayed their I am pretty sure it's exactly what the premier camping promises to be (but never is). The place is really laid back but still gives you a lot of leeway with regards to drinking and drugs. The layout of the campground makes sense and you won't get lost trying to get back to your campsite. Most importantly, at 90 dollars for the weekend (including friday night) it's actually CHEAPER than the gorge camping. It's pretty ridiculous to think that anyone would consider camping somewhere else.
This will be my 5th time camping there (with a 1 year break when I didn't get a spot early enough) and I can't imagine camping somewhere else.
Hands down the best campground for gorge events. This will be my 3rd year camping there. The owners are super nice, and I have met some cool people there!
I personally believe that anyone that gave it a try would feel the same way as well...really the super friendly vibes from the owners to peeps in the tent next to you only enhance the gorge experience..
Bought our rv site yesterday and got our 3 day passes today, we are f'ing set and pumped. Camping at the festival sucked last year. I can't believe they called that premiere camping. I bought the VIP package and was so disappointed. They take good care of you inside, but the camping bites. Bonnaroo's VIP is all about the camping experience. 20 by 50 sites, air conditioned lounges, meals, tons of ac showers and bathrooms, camping right next to the venue, no searches going in or out. There it's worth the money, this year its wildhorse and just the 3 day passes. So, do the Canadians actually sleep at this campground? They sure as hell didn't at the festival. You got to love 'em.
I haven't decided whether I'm going to stay at Wildhorse or in the Gorge campground yet (depends on what my friends want to do, really), but I bought a pass just in case. I emailed Whitehorse about transferring a reservation, so here's their reply in case anyone else is in the same position.
"Yes, you can transfer reservations by supplying the purchaser a copy of your driver's license and a copy of the reservation. They would need to have those two items when they arrive at the gate."
Edit: Oh, and since I got a few messages about it, I'm not going to know until April or May if I'm going to Wildhorse or the Gorge campground. So I can't promise anything at this point re: selling it to someone.
