    > But as I see it, the tent camping area north of Camper Registration / Schuhart Ln has been offered up to the Gray Lot

    well, dang-it!!!! That's a loss of 100 or more camping spots if not more. Last year parts of it were no generator bliss. That area is convenient to lots of things, especially to the north.

    now the only non generator area is much further south and farther from everything.

    grumble. Grumble, grumble. I guess I'm turning into a grumpy old man, but I’m bummed. Especially as camping last year was so overloaded.

    Actually you can camp anywhere you want to camp unless it is roped off/already taken. The only spot you can't camp in is Audrey's Park. Generators may be used for electricity, but no engine-driven generators will be operated between the hours of 6:30 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. (except in designated 24-hour use areas). All camping units in 24-hour auxiliary power area must be positioned perpendicular to fire lanes. Fire lanes are marked as burn lines in the grass or with signage. No tents are allowed in the 24-hour auxiliary power area.

    One negative about the camping in an electric & water site is that campers must pay from the day they secure the site through the end of the show.

    Cost: Camping (basic site): $27 per day (3 night minimum), Camping (electric & water): $65 per day

    Ermm, that's not what the guidelines say. In fact they say exactly the opposite (https://www.eaa.org/en/airventure/pl...ler/guidelines, under 'Generators'):
    '- Generators may be used for electricity, but no engine-driven generators will be operated between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. (except in designated 24-hour use areas).'
    People who try to sleep at night actually appreciate those guidelines! :-)

    That rule applies to all camp sites, not just the “improved” ones.

    There is no refund for the electric/water sites if you leave early. For the others you may get a refund as long as you meet the 3 day minimum. In each case they charge you from the day you register and get credentials through the end of the show.

    Well I've got my camping pass for 8 days in Camp Scholler and my weekly admission pass. I would never disturbe anybody's sleep. I have sleep problems myself so I understand completely. 23 days and counting until we depart for Oshkosh from South Carolina.
