    Is it possible to reserve a campsite for July 3rd?

  2. brittani says:

    So you wont be doing fireworks on the 4th of July?

  3. ts says:

    can you see the fireworks display off the no wake zone…or is it better on the other side of the brige, near the north beach?

  4. Marsha says:

    Will we be able to bring and set off personal fireworks?

  5. Linda says:

    will the fireworks take place on top of hill again? Also will the camp sites on the far side of the lake be closed like last year?

    • jmoritz says:

      Yes they will be shot off from the top of the canyon…
      Not sure what camping sites you are talking about…???

  6. Mel says:

    Last year the line to get into the lake was crazy long. If you pay early and leave and return later that evening, is it necessary to wait in the long line to show the receipt, or will there be a separate line for that?

    • jmoritz says:

      No there is no separate line sorry… Just try to get here early… your pass is good until midnight so you can wait a while after they are over
      and let the traffic die down a little too..

  7. Al says:

    are the fireworks visible from the camp area?

  8. Israel says:

    Do you know in what part of the canyon the fireworks will be launched. We are just looking for the best viewing area. Thank you!

  9. Mario says:

    open flame small grills are allowed…..correct?

  10. Mario says:

    if we leave by 5pm, would that give us enough time before the crowd starts and lines get packed?
