Just a heads up:

I called the campground two weeks ago and they said that they are not doing any reservations beyond the one NCUH group site. That overflow spot is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The manager straight up told me that if I wasn't going to show up by Wednesday to not even bother attempting to get a camping site.

I'm still going to show up on Saturday for the main event and to meet people, but I won't be camping out (unfortunately). Just thought I'd mention this so that if anyone else is going to try to get a spot as a "walk in" they can plan a contingency.

The NCUH overflow is a large area and we will continue to squeeze folks in as tight as needed to get everyone a camping spot for there tent or car. We will make things work but things may get tight PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS KEEP YOU FROM COMING. They is also two other campgrounds really close, Sonoma county Parks has Still water cove which is right down the road http://parks.sonomacounty.ca.gov/Visit/Stillwater-Cove-Regional-Park/

then you also have Gerstle cove / Salt point  State park  http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=453

I had a similar experience when I called. There's about 20 sites together they have blocked off but they are all first come first serve. Salt Point is booked and Stillwater only has a couple sites for FCFS. Even with no abalone looks like it's still a busy weekend!

overflow does not mean you get the whole site to your self !!!!  it means it is an add on to the group site and like I mentioned above we will squeeze people in till we cannot squeeze anymore, now that may mean you may be camping with others and not have a Cadillac camping space but it will enable to you camp and attend the event and be part of the group.

I will be there with my son, So two for sure and maybe three if my wife comes along.
Not sure if we are camping, Depends on space
I am afraid after I am dead my wife will sell all my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it
