    All of the LTVA is suppose to be first come first serve. So I hear if I arrive there and camp in a spot that someone, who arrives later, believes is theirs, I’ll be having problems. I’ve read several comments on other sites that makes me believe that there is a close knit community of long timers that believe they control the LTVA. Is this all true? Should us newbies just stay away?

    I am wondering the same thing. Newbie this year. Just found out about this site. Thought I might join in next winter but now I am wondering if I would be welcome, and how to avoid territorial disputes.

      Thanks for the map and information, it has been very helpful. This was our first year at the Imperial Dam LTVA.

      To the other commenters who were worried about how welcoming folks are, we haven’t had any issues. People have been friendly and welcoming (although we are all not being too social with the pandemic).

      As for “reserved” spaces, we haven’t had anyone give us trouble and we have camped at three different spots just to get a feel for the place.

      Certainly recommend you come early! While there are still some spaces available here in mid-January, a few more folks show up everyday. There would be no issue still finding a space, but the better ones are already occupied.

      If it is your first time, to keep the stress down, you might look for the first spot you would fit as a temporary location and then go scout out something better on foot, by car or bicycle. The area is much larger than we initially expected!
