Alright, so I'm camping at Wildhorse this year... never done it before. Many friends of mine will be at the general campsite. Is there any means of getting back and forth between camps later in the eve? Is it reasonable walking distance?
Also, how late does the Wildhorse site close in the evening, or can you get back in late into the evening?
Lastly, are the showers open 24 hours? I assume the shower lineups are a lot more reasonable than they are in the main site.
I stayed there in 2008 and will be doing so again this year! The two campgrounds are pretty far from one another and not within walking distance of each other.
There is a shuttle bus (school bus) that takes you to and from the show throughout the day and night. If i remember correctly the last shuttle leaves the venue roughly 45 minutes after the show ends for the day.
The shower line-ups were still long since there's only 2-3 of them. Rather than waiting in line I opted for the old wash myself under the tap method! It was cold as hell but so it goes.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
Hmmm... are the showers open at night by chance? Might be a sneaky way to beat crowds.
Yeah, I had always done the bird bath under the tap thing too, taking a bowl to a water station to wash my hair and stuff. I was more asking for the girls I'm travelling with. They waited for over an hour last year. Crazy business.
EDIT - according to maps and the Wildhorse site, it's only 3/4 mi away. That's definitely walkable if there are no shuttles. Any idea if it's possible to get into the Wildhorse campsite that late in the evening? There isn't a locked gate at night or anything, is there?
if you hit the satellite button on that map, i'm assuming the site where I've marked in the southeast is the wildhorse. the address from the wildhorse website suggests it is. Can anyone recognize it and confirm? Or is it even farther away?
I'm guessing I'll only be making that walk one night. Dang.
