What Luke said. In 2009 I definately saw buses and maybe RVs in the free (parking fee built into ticket price) paved parking lot. I don't know if they stayed overnight. Getting there early is important for good placement. The parking lot scene was real sweet, like one big party. They have also improved the bowl by cutting a flat space at the very top and building a tall faux Western facade fence there that cuts the wind real well. What was formerly to me an impossible place to dance at is now quite nice and was lots of fun. sfwharfratluke wrote:
the best lot for shakedown action is the paved lot just outside the ticket booth.
the pre-paid lot is also paved - but it's a VIP lot and it's just down from the ticket booth.
not much action in the VIP lot.
you'll have to time it just right (getting there early) to get in the good lot.
the dirt lots aren't so great.
