Land Rush PreRegistration

PreRegistration: July 1 - 9, 2021!

You may preregister for Land Rush by prepaying for 1 camping spot or 2 (maximum). Electricity is not available during preregistration, but will be available to purchase upon arrival to grounds. You may preregister online beginning 8am on July 1.  At time of preregistration a timestamp will be used to place you in the queue and then assign you to a row, A-F.  We will take preregistrations by mail-in forms (postmarked June 28- July 9), but your place in the queue will depend on when we process your order. No mail-in forms will be processed before 1pm on July 1. After July 31, you will receive a form (by email if address provided, by regular mail for others), notifying you of which row you need to line up in on or after August 28.

Land Rush Preregistration Begins July 1 at 8am

If you wish to take part in Pre-Lineup and Land Rush, but do not wish to preregister, you may do so by simply showing up on August 28, parking in Row G, and waiting for your turn to advance into the staging areas for West or Pecan Grove campgrounds. Be aware, though, that those who have preregistered, in rows A-F, will advance into the staging areas before your line. Also, if you arrive after the process has begun, you will need to proceed to the designated waiting area. Anyone who did not preregister and arrives after August 28 will be put at the current end of the Pecan or West line for Land Rush.
