When the lots open at Starlake is always a little bit of a crap shoot. Some years they'll open as early as 2pm, other years it is as late as 4pm. A couple of fellow Ants and myself will be heading out there for the Phish concert this weekend, so I'm planning to chat up some of the parking lot staff while we're there to see what the "usual" lot opening time has been this year.
What we've done in the past is organize a caravan of cars from Raccoon Creek, past the entry to Bennett Acres to add on anyone camping there, and roll down to the venue. Sometimes we get there too early, and we have to gather along the road until the lots open.
tailgate in the first lot to the left. If you're arriving later, and aren't parked right near us. You can certainly grab your chairs and cooler and come on over to join the group.
There seem to be a lot of folks staying in hotels this year, so I'd like to coordinate a meetup with them somewhere too. Maybe meet us at the entry to Raccoon or something?
Regardless, more info WILL follow. Signup for the tailgate email - see link in my signature below.
