    In theory, yes. But getting an Uber home from there after the show would be virtually impossible...

    I wouldn't plan on it. Alpine is in an area with a lot of two lane roads. They can get backed up quite a ways, which can lead to a really expensive ride. And you'd have virtually no chance of getting an Uber out of there at the end of the night....

    ETA: For what it's worth, my usual strategy is to drink while tailgating, then sober up during the show so I don't have to pay $24 for a beer or whatever they're charging these days. If you plan to smoke, though... Probably best to have a ride lined up.

    So good to officially see Alpine back. It’s been too long

    Anybody with experience camping at either Snug Harbor or Country View? feel free to chime in. Looking at these two places the closest for this go around

    This is always my approach too - spend the afternoon getting shitty at the tailgate so I'm nice and buzzed walking in, then by the time the show is over and you're trying to leave, I'm good to drive.

    Probably a long shot now, but try the Alpine Valley Resort. It's literally a 3 minute walk behind the stage.

    Alpine Valley Resort
    W2501 County Road D
    Elkhorn, WI 53121
    262-642-7374 or 800-227-9395

    Great to see Alpine back. Have settled into Countryview Campground over the years after trying a few different options.

    Doesn't hurt to watch their site too. One year, I think a wedding moved their date and a block opened up. This year we are dealing with a bike race at the resort.

    Yeah snug harbor looks nice, and planned on a 3 night stay regardless. Someone in our group called and sounds like everything added up is gonna run about 250/person for the weekend. That just seems a bit steep but it also sounds like some of the other options are already booked solid

    Is it too much and too early to ask about having a fresh start at Alpine and leaving the Thank You chants at home this year?? Pretty please?!

    So happy for the return of Alpine, my favorite venue to see the band by far! Anyone stayed/staying at Bigfoot Beach State Park in Lake Geneva?

    No camping at/on the Alpine grounds. This was discussed a couple of years ago, but shot down by Walworth Co. Sheriffs. This was communicated directly from AV management.

    They tried it out one of the last times there. The green lot became a campground.

    Nice to see some old faces popping up in here, Alpine brings out the best.

    I just got in line for the Yellow lot.
