Family Area at 2009 PorcFest?
« on: March 22, 2009, 09:52:32 am »

Are there any plans for families to camp in the same area? I have a 3 year old so I'd like for my family to camp away from the parties and near other families. Any takers?

One of you could find what area has not been reserved heavily for that week and aim for it.

The Walkers (with soon-to-be-four-year-old Peter) and the Eastmans (with Angel, Daniel, Tamber, and Eli that I know of coming, ranging from 6 - 16 y.o.) will be sharing a site close to the playground.  You could reserve one in that general area.  :)  I don't necessarily know where the "parties" may be held, but at lest kids would be nearby.

For a  very quiet sites I would look at sites 100 to 110.  These are quite a hike to the main festivities.
The sites near the playground are very convenient but they are not going to be quiet. due to the are on he main drag into the camp sites.
The campsites along the top of the map  tend to be fairly quiet and some are also more private because they are in the woods.

Also keep in mind that earplugs are very cheap (even cotton balls work a little).  I'm just saying...

A less unpleasant alternative might also be the hotel...though that kind of defeats the purpose if you're coming to camp.

Exactly, yes, I want to camp, and introduce my wife and son to camping. They've never done it and I haven't since I was a boy scout.

We were right on the poplar field last year, just a stone's throw from the "fun tent", and Pete didn't have any trouble sleeping through on any given night.  I think there's so much going on during the day, that little ones get tuckered out by nightfall and can't help but sleep soundly.

You and your wife would be the ones to "worry" about, and earplugs *do* work great.   ;D

If you're looking for quiet - which is completely understandable if you have a young child - I would stay clear of the busy part of the campground including the playground area. As Kate suggested, sites 100-110, would be more quiet for a family.

Last year at Porcfest, the state jerkers ...  ahhh, I mean "workers" placed us away from the Poplar field, which was where there were lots of thangs goin' on.
It was quiet but I feel like I missed out on the camaraderie.  We did bring bikes along with us though and that was good.  It was a good idea and IS a good idea for anyone who has a bike.  Just a suggestion.

No reason you couldn't have picked a spot in Poplar Field. I've never had a campground - including Gunstock or any other state run facility - "place" me at a particular site. Maybe you said you wanted a wooded site, or something secluded.....or whatever....and they directed you to the site you ended up with. If the sites in Poplar Filed were already gone by the time you arrived, lesson learned to reserve a site ahead of time. : )
