Looking to camp somewhere new this year

Post by Firstoffmutha » Wed May 23, 2018 5:01 pm

Hello!

For the last four years, my friend and I have been camping near 8 and J. We want to explore this year! What are your experiences with camping at different parts of the playa?

I camp pretty close to Center Camp. It gets pretty busy and loud at all hours of the day and night. You are in a quieter neighborhood, but can easily get to action. Moving closer down towards the Esplanade will improve the excitement.

Bring good earplugs. Hearing the boom, boom, boom all night is nice. I kind of miss it since we've moved to a quiet neighborhood.

I’ve been on the 2:30-3:00 side for the last couple years. Love it!
Oh my god, it's HUGE!
