Read around through this thread and some of the others.
You'll more than likely find all the information you need. If you don't just ask. Thumbs Up
A bike is a big help. I've been know to run into town, get a case of beer and a bag of ice, and be back in Town Park in about 20 minutes or less (and I didn't peddle fast). Cheers

It's walkable, even with altitude sickness, up to the store and back to Town Park.

Don't know where to buy them, but I believe you are referring to the Diabolo.

If a banjo player picks in the woods, and no one is there to hear him.... is he still making an awful lot of noise?

I will be there with my son Malachi 8. He will be looking for lots of new friends! My daughter who is 13 has no interest and is going elsewhere while we are there. she does not want to listen to " old people music"  not sure how I raised her to think that! LOL

Hi everybody!  I realize this thread is pretty much dead for now, BUT I just got an email that my tickets and camping passes are in the mail, so I just thought I'd say hi to any parents out there who, like me, are dreaming of June.

This will be our first TBF, though I've wanted to attend for 20+ years. 

There seems to be a great little community here.  It would be great to get to know many of you before the big trip.  We've got a little one who will be 20 months when we make the drive out, so if you're in the mood for TODDLER TIME, we've got you covered!

We'll be at Mary E. Does anyone have suggestions on locations within the grounds, or a link to a map of the camp?

Chicken and I look forward to getting to know you all over the next few months...

We are coming with our (will be) 13 month old son! We are camping on Warner Field, and also LOVE that idea! If there are any other families on Warner Field, I'd love to camp near one another so that we can be sure of respectful neighbors! As far as babysitting, I'm sure we'll be around the campsite most nights (since Birdie is so young) so I'd be into watching some kiddos! Please be in touch friends! Looking forward to getting out in the mountains for some beauty and music!  Flower

We'll be in TP with Zoie who will be 18mos old at that time. We'd love to find some other families with toddlers to camp next to. Anyone here going to be in Town Park?

I am wondering if it might be smarter to camp somewhere else... not sure yet, but i'm sure if we wanted to camp at WP we wouldn't have too much trouble trading our TP passes.

Any Opinions / Advice appreciated!

You will have a great time in TP. I YOu may want to camp closer to the waterfall and closer to the hillside by the water fall, this is an area that is not so loud and the water fall drowns out the sound from the nearby fun group from Steamboat Springs. There are qutie a few kids in TP so if you have the tickets I would keep them, you will glad that you did. Just my 2 cents.

With music in our lives we are able to express ourselves in so many ways, with instruments, vocals, dance and movement. This can be done solo or with others. Music is not only entertainment, it is a way of life.

Dancin-Feet,

We surely appreciate your advice! We'll be trying to get up there as early as possible in the week to secure some real estate in a quieter area of TP. We sure are excited!

Hi, glad to hear there are so many families with young kids.  We are also newbies and will be bringing our 3 year old.  We have a site at Mary E, but there are no more vehicle permits at Mary E.  What does this mean?  We just don't get to camp near our vehicle?  Or do we have to park it somewhere very far away?

Also, I would love to hear suggestions about what gear to bring.  I saw several posts about sun shades and low back chairs...
