    Default Temporary waiting area for large camp groups

    If you arrived early last year to camping, you are probably aware of security not allowing your big camping groups to wait for one another as they cross the toll booths. My group of 16 camp spots were a little worried coming in this year. We have a set up that we have been planning for months that requires us to have all 16 spots next to each other. A dedicated member of our group wanted to make sure we would be allowed to all drive into the camping together so he took action. We were more than delighted to get this response:

    Sent from concerts@goldenvoice.com,

    There will be a designated waiting area on the south side of Lot 10 in
    which you could meet up with your group prior to being parked in your
    camping spot. We encourage everyone in your group to arrive together in
    the toll lanes as vehicles will only have temporary access to the
    waiting
    area.
    Thank you Goldenvoice for fixing the issues from last year!

    Wishing you much luck with your camp set up and it would be great if this actually is managed this way this year. Thanks for sharing this information and seriously good luck getting all your cars together:-)

    Thanks for the post man. I was worried about this too after the douchebag mounties broke up our group last year.

    Let's hope this works out better than the "arrive together to camp together" claims from previous years.

    all large groups will be assembled together in a temporary waiting area and held until 1am each day, whereupon the entirety of the large-group crowd will be directed into the campgrounds.

    oh, wait. you said 'better'. :P

    So we enter and stage up in lot ten, then after the whole group is searched we tell security we are ready to move in and we bump into line?

    Yes, you still enter through Lot 13. You can meet up with your group in Lot 10 after you've been searched & ticketed.
