Worst place to see a concert – Expect an hour wait just to get to a parking lot. Then, when you do, expect a trek over an unpaved path in the woods. When you emerge from the woods, expect a very long walk around a lake. When walking back after dark, this path is COMPLETELY unlit. We had to walk back to our cars through the woods with a screaming 2 year old with no light whatsoever - very scary! The show was also oversold - we had to sit back in the concession section, and we couldn't hear the spoken part of the concert. When we decided to get food, we waited 45 minutes in line, and most of the food was SOLD OUT. We will not ever go again, but if you do, eat beforehand, wear comfortable shoes, and take a flashlight (and maybe a tent in case you get lost in the woods).
Don't bother – The setting looked nice and all, but it turned out to be one of the most poorly organized and run venues I've seen. Took over an hour to fight traffic. Concession lines were another half hour...when we got to the front, they had already run out of many brands of beer (but plenty of PBR!!), all wine except for white zin (strangely past over by a Cary crowd), Italian sausage, mustard, napkins, and who knows what else -- all before the concert started!!! The website claims no lawn chairs are allowed -- don't believe it. The blanket we brought sat at our feet as we stood for the first few songs. Accoustics were OK, but at the more expensive private tables, the noise from the concession stands 20 feet away made it impossible to hear. We left 20 minutes into what really should have been a great show.
Nice experience – I went to a concert here recently and was really impressed--this is a great opportunity to bring a picnic and enjoy a warm summer night. Parking wasn't a problem at all, and staff members were friendly. Make sure you bring a folding chair, though. I came with a beach towel thinking there would be plenty of grassy spots to sit on, but we ended up on a big patch of wet pine needles instead.
