Not too sure but if you have premiere 3 day camping pass you are willing to share we have a ride for you from vancouver. The pass is good for a carload so we are desperately searching and then you wouldn't have to worry about walking in. Mischa
*poop* I am actually coming with 4 buddies, but one is just dropping us off and going around the state for a few days till we get picked up on Monday. In which case hitching with someone else isn't really an option
So this walk-in camping, we each pay 10$ walk-in fee once and were good for the weekend? or is 10$ a day per person?
And also, since we wont be having a vehicle, is that a problem with pitching a tent up? We'd still be able to get a spot fine right?

I have seen and heard about walk in campers, but I never looked into it, so I had never heard of a charge. It can't be too hard to sneak in without paying the $10? Or better yet, see if you can get a ride in the campground with someone who has a pass. Offer them whiskey. Then you can jump out whenever. For cars, they make you display a parking pass, but they can't really do that on single tents, right?
There is a lot of room to find a single spot to pitch your tent, at least the further away from the entrance you can get. It will also help if you are pitching your tent around small groups of strangers, rather than in the middle of a gigantic conglomerate of frat boys, because they are pretty lenient on letting you save spots for friends depending on where and when you get there. Good luck.

The camping ground is basically a huge parking lot with grass areas between the roads. Some of these grass areas are upwards of 60 feet long, so the logic is, you park your car, and the space behind your car extending 15 feet or so is your camp site. On the flip side, the car parked opposite of your car (in the same grass patch) is basically allowed their 15 feet behind their car, if you can picture it. To attempt to visualize it, look at a persons rib cage, with the ribs being the roads, and the spots between the ribs as the grass camping spots. So you can turn south to park on the first rib, and someone else with turn north to park from the second rib, so you will be facing each other with 30 feet of grass in between you.
That being said, people tend to keep their tents near their cars, so there is often areas directly between the two parked cars where individual campers can pitch.
The ticket to the show does not give you access to the campground. The thinking is that you will either pay for parking, or pay for camping. Again, I don't know what the fee is for non campers/non parkers.
