Welcome to TBF and Mary E.
The seen is pretty chill out at the campground.
There are some really great people out there. Mingling is one of the best things you can do. Camp hopping can almost be considered a sport from time to time. The grounds are so spread out, and it gets so cold out that picker circles are not found as much as some other festivals. Not to say you can't start you own circle. You can usually find someone to pick with. But yes there has been some legendary jams out there from time to time. Usually the further back you go the louder and later everything can get.
Bring a gooood sleeping bag! It gets cold at night. Not unusual to wake up with frost on everything. If it's level ground, it's open to camp on. There are no set sites. It's a long campground with plenty of room to spread out. So feel free to bring your camping "extras". I.E. shower, solar set-up. Anything like that. There is NO open wood fires anytime! That is one rule that is strictly enforced. Will know about charcoal grills when we get closer to the fest.
