Parking - Most parking will occur in areas adjacent to highway within the park. Should these areas fill to capacity, an overflow parking area is available 1.8 miles west of Willow Lake Road (to be signed) with shuttles providing transportation to the event. Carpooling is highly recommended.

Boating - Due to congested conditions at both boat ramps and throughout the park, launching of private boats will not be possible during the event. Various organizations will provide boat rides and rentals.

Camping - Campsites are available on a first-come, first served basis, and are divided into two areas. We are not set-up to take reservations. Arriving Thursday afternoon for a campsite is highly recommended since the campground will likely be filled by Friday. The campground is closed Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Campsites are $15.00 per night, and no hookups are available. Showers are available for campers.
