I was wondering what the go is with the different camping areas. I understand that there is a camping only area that doesn't allow cars, but is in close proximity to Centeroo. And that there is another area in which you camp next to your car. Do you get to choose? You said that the camping only area may fill up rather quickly. I won't be arriving until friday morning. Does this mean I'll most likely be in the parking/camping area way out in the boondocks?
Glad to hear you're coming to 'roo! Here is a

You have a choice to either camp where you're parked or move to tent only. Either way, you'll come in and get parked; you might be close to Centeroo (in which case, stay put) or you might be way out there (think about moving). Then if you want to go to tent only you haul your gear over. You will not be able to drive by and drop your stuff off, so if you're considering tent only, make sure your stuff is portable. Tent only has gotten much more crowded the past few years, by Friday it'll be a bit tight, but you should still be able to camp there, just be polite about it. You've as much right to camp there as anyone else.
