View Full Version : What was the best Camp?
06-22-2004, 12:57 PM
I was at Camp Krusty from 7:00 Thurs Morning until about 10:00 Monday morning other than a few creeps blaring queen and stumbling around drunk (they weren't around long), Shakedowns St. was full of friendly folks willing to share and barter and make sure everybody had a great experience!

Where did all of the forum posters camp? Being that this is the first year of the fest, like minded campers were probably scattered all over. If this festival has as many years ahead as I hope, I'll bet these campsite begin to get individual reputations. Some may become more family oriented, some known for all night wild partying, some for their humor, some for their pickin, etc. Lets hear what you thought of your area!

The seediest area was Shakedown Street. One cool camp down there was Central Plains Jamband Society. I was in Camp Disco Stu which was kinda the middle of the camping. There were tons of 70%-empty campgrounds including spots beneath the shade-trees, if you went furthur back into the park. I saw a lot of acoustic pickin' happening out at Camp MoleMan, and one other Upgraded area I forgot the name of (Charlie Horse band camping area).

Yes, It looked like there was lots of great spaces to be had deep into the park. We would have considered heading to the 'way back' area, but there just would not have been enough time for us to get back and forth to the stage area, but man there were some nice places to be had down there. Maybe they should get a couple more buses for next year. We were still happy with our camp, it did get seedy a little further down the street - bunk drugs and few junky creeps. There was lots of room right up on the concert area. Some of that was 'disabled camping', but it looked like a few folks just steaked a claim out there near the tree lines.

I was in Disco Stu as well. Dgold, were you the guy who gave us the free magazine? If so, thanks! We were in the huge tan tent near the acoustic stage. We had some cool neighbors as well as some ****ty ones. People near us were selling coke and there were some really obnoxious partiers..especially after the storm on Thursday. Ironically some asshole told US to turn down OUR music at one point, when it wasn't even that loud and wasn't that late. Hopefully next year we'll get to camp in an area that doesn't mind a little bit of noise a little late, but also doesn't have obnoxious drunk assholes screaming \"FIRE IT UP!!!\" at 5 AM.

Yeah, Nelly Tucklehead was the best. I had more room than I knew what to do with out there. And there was a HUGE field behind us...

i was at the corner of 4th & Crazy Lane....
some ****ing High Schoolers decided to camp next to us (corner of Shakedown and Crazylane) and party LOUD until 5am each night. to say the least; we were not happy campers bc of that. did anyone see the pink flamingo on the stick at any of the shows? if so, those were some of my neighbors.....
i lvoed my spot, but those ****tards ruined it for alot of peeps around them. they were there just to party and get ****ed up and had ZERO respect for anyone around them, and when confronted about it, they were like 'dude, dont be hatin'.. its time to party' and **** liek that. and they were takin acid and were like 'we cant help it man, we just took acid, we HAVE TO party'
not cool. if this was any of you or anyone you know... im sorry. but its true

I have to vote camp MO, technically it was off 8th street and near camp Cletus but after the Fri. night set of Bockman's and Speakeasy it was camp MO. We had a blast the whole weekend (despite the chiggers) and all of us there can't wait for the Euphio campout in Aug.
We were in the back of Cletus. It was chillin and had some great shade around the tree line. Or maybe it seemed chillin because nothing could wake us up - even the hurricane.
Next time I think that we will get closer to a No Waka stop but still stay in a chillin spacy area if possible. I heard alot of people going, \"WakaWakaWaka\" but I was always saying, \"No Waka No Waka No Waka\". :D

Well crap. More keller was with Kelly too. I knew I should have gone back down there. I drove by the site on Thurday and we were not happy at the time, all the power & water sites were gone. We camped out in the suburbs and I just never made the treck back. My loss I guess.
