    It will be 6 spots in a row, assuming you go in together. There will be others parked behind you.

    Last time I went was 2011, but we had like 10 spots and were set up in 2 rows of 5 in the second lot.

    do you recommend setting up tents in one location and having communal space to lounge?

    That worked out well for us. We had at least one space devoted to lounging.

    If you ask the people who are directing you if you can set up back-to-back instead, they are typically cool about it as long as you aren't an ass hat.

    Yeah it depends on the security guy you get, some of them will be nice and let you decide and some will make you park where they want you to. Your best bet is 2 rows of 3 cars parked back to back to maximize your space. That has worked the best for us since we can have a common area in the center of the 6 spots.

    They've always let us park back to back. It would really be kinda screwed if they didn't.

    We like to make a large community area and then pop up the tents around the perimeter of the common area.

    Always parked back to back as well. Never seen any security forcing people to all park in a row ... That doesn't even make sense. They couldn't get the second row of cars into the spaces unless they made people back in, and that would be a total cluster fuck!

    What they've always done (at least all the times I've gone) is they send the cars down the middle of the camping row and just alternate which direction they have you park ... So if you're in a group you just automatically end up being back to back. I've never had to ask for it to happen.
