For those of you camping in the General or Quiet camping areas, please know that the amount of space between tents will be about 2 feet per tent. Set up camp expecting to have your neighbors within that proximity of your camp.  Be respectful to your neighbors and please keep noise to a minimum after hours.  If you need to socialize while others may be sleeping, there are plenty of places you can walk to that are nice and away from campers.
