Hi Everyone!  As the title says I am thinking about headed to the festival for the first time and bringing my wife and young daughter.  We are super excited.   I am wondering if there are any tips you seasoned festivarians would be willing to share to make our festival experience better?  Is there a more kid friendly camp ground I should look in to getting?  Is it necessary to set up camp on Thursday?  Would I be out of luck on getting a good spot if we show up on Friday?  I did use the search bar and found some great tips on other posts but I was hoping to get some prospective especially from people with young kids (my daughter is 3).  Thanks in advance.

Hi!  Thanks for the response.  I was starting to lose hope.  I just ended up buying the 3 day onsite camping pass for my wife, daughter and I.  Any tips are very appreciated as this it's my first festival and I am SUPER excited.

Unfortunately I just wont be able to help with that one.  huh I know there are still lots of people showing up on Friday. So I don't think you have that much to worry about. I will be camping down at Meadow park and set up Wednesday sometime. It is hard not getting excited.

Onsite camping is awesome but loud at night for the little one. I've heard of people getting together and making little areas of families that are toned down a little.  There are two parts of on-site camping.  The north part is tent only and the south part is tents/vehicles (you would need a vehicle pass for the vehicle).  It fills up quick on Thursday night, but spots can still be found on Friday. There are tons of families and kids at the festival, none of which are mine, so I can't give you much advice there.
