N3 Gorge Tix
 
I know this is likely not the correct forum page. But unfortunately, I am unable to see the ticket exchange. Have 2 GA lawn seats for N3 @ the Gorge 2021. You cover fees! 20 for both total! I would hate to see these go to waste!

Re: The Gorge Q&A and FAQs
 
Has anyone done Easy Camping? If so what is the bathroom/shower situation? The wife and I arenít really campers and want to finally make it to the Gorge next year. Iím looking to make things as simple as possible. Also is it possible to just take snacks, alcohol, water and rely on food trucks for hot food?

I believe the situation is--

bathroom: porta potties
shower: pay a couple bucks for a hot shower, pay less (if anything) for a cold shower

if looking to make things as simple as possible I'd do my best to get into Oasis Camping

as for relying on food trucks, in the past that was certainly a viable option, but my understanding is that this year it may have been more difficult because they didn't have as many trucks there. I think you still could have done it, you'd have just been eating a lot of chicken tenders/pizza/burgers/standard concession fare rather than something more exotic.

Thanks for info. I will definitely check into Oasis when it gets closer.

I think this is right. Easy camping just means they set up the tent and let you have a sleeping bag and an air mattress. Otherwise, I think it is the same as Gold (which has free showers, coincidentally).

If you're looking for the least camp-y route, this is right - go Oasis. But, you can also rent an RV and park either in Gold or Standard - this seemed to be quite a popular option and I think it worked out well for those folks.

As for food trucks, this was my first year but I hear they were reduced. Assume that may ramp back up moving forward. That said, you could have survived on the food trucks (at a pretty decent markup, but not terrible). That all said, I'm not much of a camper, and we rented all our gear through Back 40 Outfitters and did fine, and we added on a camp stove. We might have looked a bit stupid for a few minutes getting the tents put up/organized, but if we pulled it off, I feel like most people could.
