I've always camped at the Gorge and always loved it until this last year. They got some shit under control, for instance the honey buckets were cleaned more regularly/thoroughly. But we had the worst neighbors I've ever had, guys that were just loud all night, and not in a fun, come party with us way. We just decided to try something new and see if it's as fun.

I can safely say I will never camp at Wildhorse for two reasons.
A. Waiting for a Shuttle - It already sucks waiting in line to get in the venue, but if I had to wait in line to catch a shuttle prior to being allowed to wait in line to enter the venue, I might just lose my mind. I hate waiting though. At the end of the night, guess, what, you get to wait in line again. If you hit it perfectly, you will get back to camp quicker than us regular campers, but I rather enjoy the walk back to regular camping. Again, I would rather spend 20 minutes walking, than even five minutes waiting.
B. Old people. It's cool, you are old. I'm older than many of you, but I like being near the party. It's like going to Burning Man, but staying at a hotel down the road.
General camping, if for nothing else, is 100% worth staying in just to be able to unzip your tent in the morning and obtain a glimpse into what a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies and decay would look like.
I would never camp anywhere but general camping, and this is coming from a guy who awoke from his tent last year only to find a brown slimy substance that was either puke but more likely diarrhea less that a foot away. We just laid some newspapers over it "Big Daddy" style, and started our day. Great story.
Holy shit, not only do I have the same tent but one year I may have bounced off of my neighbors tent trying to get to mine. so they un-poled it right before they left in the morning. I woke up inside of it like an envelope. exactly like that
You aint livin until you wake up like this in your tent...
Yes, this has happened to me as well, Sasquatch 05. I'm not sure why the first people passing out the night before feel entitled to fuck with the person still sleeping the next morning. Needless to say, I was the only one still sleeping the next morning, so my friends took apart my tent on top of me. I have a similar photo.
One cool thing about Wild Horse is if you want to car camp beside friends who are showing up at a different time than you in a seperate car.The staff is friendly and if asked they will hold a spot beside your camp for friends showing up later. Each reservation is under a name so we told the person at the front gate who we were waiting for. We set up camp and relaxed and they brought them right to us! If that is a non factor, the gorge camp ground is the shite.
She started dancing to that fine-fine music ahh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll.
