That link in my sig doesnt really work that well anymore. Here is the jist of what was on that website. I already gave you the towns and camping you can search for things with those parameters in place.
Here are some things to remember for Alpine Valley Camping and Tailgating ...
Lake Geneva --- Take RT 120 North until you hit Rt 11 (it will be labled), turn west onto Rt 11 to Bowers Road. Turn north on Bowers road and pull off to the side, that is the meeting point. If you hit County Line D you have gone too far and should turn west on County Line D because that is the line to get into Alpine.
(Map Included below)
Elkhorn --- Take RT 11 to Bowers Road and turn North on Bowers Road and pull off to the side, that is the meeting point. You can also call me and just drive there together. You can also take 43N to exit 29 and follow that to the intersection of Bowers Rd and Rt. 11
East Troy --- Take Interstate 43 SOUTH to Exit 29 (RT 11). Turn East onto Rt 11 and take RT 11 to Bowers Road and turn North on Bowers Road and pull off to the side, that is the meeting point.
Chicago --- Take Interstate 43 NORTH to EXIT 29 (RT 11). Turn East onto Rt 11 and take RT 11 to Bowers Road and turn North on Bowers Road and pull off to the side, that is the meeting point.
Milwaukee --- Take Interstate 43 SOUTH to Exit 29 (RT 11). Turn East onto Rt 11 and take RT 11 to Bowers Road and turn North on Bowers Road and pull off to the side, that is the meeting point.
Random Campgrounds surrounding the area --- Find Route 11 or 120 and trace a route to BOWERS RD and RT 11 (very close to interstate 43).
This is by no means the only things you should have.
Just a list to jog your memory. Remember, too much prevents trouble.
Your car is your safe zone for everything, NEVER leave it unattended. Keep the car locked unless you are sitting in it somehow, people have things stolen sitting right next to their car. Put EVERYTHING back into the car before you head into the venue, if you have a car at your campsite put everything except the tents into that including suitcases / extra coolers / lawn chairs / games. Dont trust anyone and your stuff will be there when you get back. HAVE A D.D., its dangerous enough getting out, this is for your safety and ours. Don't be a dumbass and Drive while Drunk.
Tickets, my suggestion is to put them in the wallet the day you leave and don't take them out. Bringing a money clip is great, it goes in the front pocket and prevents pickpocketing. If your going to upgrade your tickets at the venue pay very close attention to them and compare them with the ticket you have / a friends, if they don't match up, don't take them, and be careful to pay attention to seat numbers so you don't over pay for last row seats. Don't ever trade for ticket fast tickets, its easy to copy them and have the seller get into the venue before you and have yourself stuck outside.
Camping Basic Needs List.
1. TICKETS. You don't want to scalp for lawn seats do you.
3. Water (Lots of it, you don't want to be dehydrated)
4. Flashlight or Headlamp / Lantern, it gets dark at night people.
5. Sleeping bag/blanket and pillow
6. Towels. For the pool, showers, just to clean up with.
8. Essential toiletries - soap, shampoo, deodorant (esp. if you're sharing a tent), toothbrush, toothpaste.
9. Hand Sanitizer. TONS of it, buy two of those big ass bottles, there is no place to wash your hands and this keeps the germs away.
10. CHAPSTICK / SUNSCREEN. You do not want to be roasted by the end of the weekend,
11. Clothes. Your discretion, But the rule of thumb, pack an extra days worth of clothes and two extra days worth of socks.
12. Liquor and Food, they are expensive around the venue / hard to get to.
13. Things to cook with. Charcoal and wood is enough for some, the Grill is necessary for others. Its up to you.
14. Cooler and Ice. Warm food and water is BAD.
15. Paper plates and utensils.
16. Toilet paper (not necessary if you poop at the venue)
17. TRASH BAGS, put your dirty shit in something, no littering.
18. DUCT TAPE / WD-40, this is a must, it fixes everything.
19. First Aid: Band Aids, neosporin, advil.
21. Rain gear (just in case)
22. Lawn Chairs
23. Newspapers (Kindling)
Tailgating Basic Needs List.
1. A tarp / sun shade / ANYTHING to cover your head. Its hot, damn hot, and there are no trees, you will be very happy to have this.
2 Coolers. w/ food / beer IN THEM. Don't forget them at the site.
3. Duct Tape / WD-40. Remember, anything.
4. Lawn Chairs
5. Tables to put things on.
6. Rope to tie things to cars / down if it gets windy (and it will storm at least one day).
7. Sunscreen, did i mention its hot?
8. The grill if you have food that needs it. Otherwise you can barter for food with beer, or use a friends grill.
9. Utensils / plates.
10. Games, drinking and stories only last for so long.
11. That extra pair of clothes, if it rains you'll be dry in the venue.
12. THE TICKETS, don't forget them. EVER.
