Yup, For a price! in 2010 they had stations to buy it in the camping areas and also drove through a bit with an ice van!

10 bucks a bag, i think even higher. that and the price of batteries was f'n ridiculous.

I'm not too sure. But i know it wasn't worth it. Better off taking the shuttle to the grocery store. Which can be a bitch as well.

it is pretty expensive to buy it on site. Take as much as you absolutely can with you. Consider some dry ice for your food coolers. There is a shuttle to the grocery store that you can use to restock.

would putting dry ice at the bottom of the ice chest help keep ice longer? I always wondered.

Yes-ish.

Usually the campground store sells ice. Usually it's expensive. Usually they run out intermittently and have to get restocked.

It's almost always better to go to Ralph's.

i was talking about if it was possible to put dry ice in a ice chest to make the ice last longer.

you can do the dry ice thing, but know what you are doing.....

i budget for ice. most of the time you are in the festival so starting thursday late night, get ice, get everything nice and cold for the morning, then go in, same routine each night.

all good!
