Everyone entering Estrella War is required to stop at the Front Gate located on the entrance road to the site. There you pay an entrance fee (or check-in if you used Pre-Registration to pay before the event), and complete liability waivers and paperwork for the vehicles/trailers you have with you.

Before leaving the Front Gate, each attendee receives a Site Token or Youth Token, along with pet tags and Car Tags for the vehicles, trailers and RVs they plan to use and/or park at the event. Attendees must wear their Site/Youth Tokens while at the event as proof they paid the proper entrance fee. Car Tags must be visibly displayed on all parked vehicles, trailers and RVs at the site. We ask all attendees to review the Site Rules before they arrive so they understand these guidelines.

If you wish to participate in the Wet RV Parking lot raffle, please follow the instructions located under Wet/Dry RV under parking.
