  • As of 08:45 this morning, the two highest projected tidal levels are expected to be Today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday) at approx.: 5:00PM that are projected to peak at 7.9’. After this time, subsequent tidal flows are expected to decline below the stage at which the road begins to flood.

  • 135-150 inclusive (only 149 and 150 are RV sites)


  • Other areas of the park may experience standing water in roadways, etc.

Impact on the event:

  • Current plans are that the event IS STILL ON, with potential for minimal disruption to the schedule on Wednesday, as the tents are currently scheduled to be delayed one day, to be set up on Wednesday morning. If necessary, we will make, and announce, adjustments to the schedule based on available venues and conditions.

  • Once this storm blows out, it is supposed to be gorgeous for the remainder of the event!

Please be safe, and reach out if you have any additional questions or concerns!
