The festival is approximately 10,000 to 15,000.

Jacksonville Beach is the closest beach.

There are playgrouds scattered throughout the park. I have seen a lot of kids/families camping next to the Mushroom Stage (the amphitheater). There is a large playground permanent bath house and shaded camping.

If you bring your kid you MUST bring shade for him/her. It will be fiery hot, near 100. Seriously. The large stage is unshaded as it is a big field. I've seen parents with kids there in April and thought it was child abuse because their kids had on no clothes, no sunblock, and provided no shade for them.

All I'm saying is if you bring the kid you must take precautions from the sun. It's not like playing in the backyard in KY (my roommate is from Bowling Green).

Do people come and go in their vehicles much....RE: Walmart for supplies, ice, etc. Or do most park it when they get there and not go anywhere til time to leave Sunday morning?

Is it going to be hard to get your truck out on Sat morning if you got there Thursday....campsites between you and the road out?

Inquiring minds want to know!!!


They have a little store on site so you can get what you need there. If you don't have what you need ask fellow campers. I needed neosporine and a bandaid one year...my next door neighbor campers in the RV hooked me up and made me promise the next time I wiped out it would be where they could see. :)

Where in SF are you coming from? We are from Fort Myers and are leaving Thursday morning at 5 am sharp to get there and set up by 11:30 for the meet and greet.

Hmmm now that you mention it I just read the guidelines and they mention parking area opens at noon. I know that the campground is open all the time - not sure what that means. I will call in the am to find out. Just tried and thier office closes at 6.

We planned on getting there around 10 to be set up by 11ish...but that might not be possible.

Any help fellas?? - I think i recall seeing someone getting in on Wed or even all week.

You can get there early if your willing to pay for a extra day which is seperate from normal ticket price's you would have to call for pricing...that's if you go on Wensday not sure about getting there early on Thrusday you may or may not be able to get in early as the people that work the "ticket" booth may not be there till noon...Please keep us posted on what you find out.
