Meetup info: Edit

Vehicle Gathering:

A good spot for vehicles to gather and fill up before the final driving portion of your Gorge adventure (if you are coming from Portland or points south) to the Gorge Campground/Day Parking is the "town" of Vantage, which is just a truck stop basically on the west side of the Columbia River just before you drive across the green Vantage Bridge to the east side of the Columbia on the way to The Gorge.

People Gathering:

If you are camping a good spot to meet is at the little General Store right near the campground entrance. There are a couple of food stands and such in that area as well.

Another good spot to gather is in the very center of the circular campground where they have recently set up vending and a sort of venue sponsoroed Shakedown Street. There will of course be an alternative crowd sponsored Shakedown Street somewhere in the Regular Campground area to meet up as well.

If you are just going to day park I think good spots to gather include the entrace gate to the venue, the center of the circular Day Parking area, any sort of crowd sponsored Shakedown Street within the parking area and the entrance to the Day Parking area.
