When you sign up for the waiting list it will ask if there is a certain area you’d like to be in. If you are unfamiliar with the location of sites you can use the color-coded map to help make your choice.
The gates open at noon on Tuesday. The earlier you arrive in the week the better chance you’ll have at purchasing a utility site at the gate. After you buy your site, the staff will take you around on a golf car to show you what is available.
When you prepay for a site in a certain area, you are not guaranteed an actual site number, you are only guaranteed a site in that area. It depends on when you arrive which actual site you will be setting up your campsite in.
