Camping & Placement
There is no separate parking lot at this event. You should park your vehicle where you camp. Do not park on sprinklers, in taped off areas, and on roads. If you are with a theme camp, check with your theme camp lead(s) for more information on parking. Theme camp areas are meant to have a minimal amount of personal vehicles. Parking is available along the dirt road adjacent to the theme camp area (aka esplanade) or in overflow parking near gate.
We do not sell or require parking or vehicle passes at SN-RG.
RVs are welcome at SN-RG. There are no RV hookups or services at the event. RVs make a great sound barrier and we suggest strategically placing RVs to reduce sound bleed. This is especially recommended for theme camps.
