Is it too early to get excited about Clifftop? I have never been before but it fits into my schedule this year. I just might drive down from Vermont with my new teardrop camper...and a fiddle.

I accept all sorts of advice.

It's never too late. In fact, there are less than 100 days until the campground opens (94 I think) and I was about to start the same thread! You should get as many days camping as you can since you'll be driving so far (my drive is 14hrs). The teardrop should be perfect, it's what I camp with.

As far as Clifftop goes, get your showers in early if you like hot water.

You'll love it! IMO it's best to get there the Friday before the festival starts to get the complete experience and have a fighting chance at getting a spot in the shade. Since it rained so much last year it's going to be pretty dry this year (Ha-Ha).

There are two kinds of Clifftops. Rainy and not so rainy, there even have been some really dry and dusty ones (so have that tune ready too). I missed a couple of years due health issues (mine and my father's) but got back last year and hope to get back this year as well.

I have talked a banjo playing friend of mine into coming and he's going to scouting it for a family vacation next year (they go to Telluride BG fest every year and Rockygrass, so they are well versed in musical camping situations). Look for me in the corner straight back along the treeline from the left side of the stage.

Is that the best spot?

It is where my friend 'the mayor' Phillip stakes out a space for a hand full of people. He's been to every Clifftop and had been in this spot for about all of them. "Best" is subjective as there are many 'neighborhoods' in which to camp. Some would say "the bottoms" is the best, but I don't care for tents on top of tents - I like a little breathing room. laugh

With the camper  you'll just want some flat land, and in the field where I camp is pretty flat. The area Lee camps in is flat too. He's just outside of the tent city that is "the bottoms."
