Hi Neighbor

This year I got to bring my wife for the first time to Cornerstone. One of the misconceptions a newbie to Cornerstone may be that you will get a nice private campsite much like one you might have at a KOA or Jellystone campground. Upon arrival you find this to be the complete opposite of your traditional campground.
If you are an introvert, and plan on camping, you will be forced to break out of that mold. If you arrive early you may begin to think not too many people will show up and you will have much space for yourself. It is when you leave for your first concert that you are surprised with all of your new neighbors. Even after many people surround your campsite and you get used to them, you will still see late comers to the campground looking for a site. What seemed to be a full campground already is now their new place to camp. It is amazing how many people can pack into one campsite. What seems to be a full campsite gets fuller.
This is the great part. Unless you are camping next to a stage the chances are you will have great neighbors. This is the case for my wife and I. We met our new neighbors who drove 20 hours from Florida to be at Cornerstone…this made my 6 hour trek to Cornerstone child’s play. I guess you could say one of the pleasantries of being a camper is making new friends. I have yet to hear of someone having a bad experience and if everyone was fortunate to have campers next to them like the ones we have….you will have a very pleasant Cornerstone experience.

    Camp friends are the best. The last 4 or 5 years that I attended the fest (I went every year from 1992 to 2002), the main joy for me was reuniting with old friends. We met some folks that came back every year and we all camped together in one bug “village” and it was awesome. Through the magic of Facebook, I am still keeping up with several of them to this very day – what a blessing!
