You really should go everywhere and see the city.
I like to be near the center, so the distances are about the same, but there are interesting things at each end.
If you want to be near the loud camps there are posts on other threads about what is where.
By tuesday, you will have some trouble getting an Rv close to the esplanade in most parts of the city.
I don't know how far back you should start, but you have a large shape to fit into a camp.
It's not that big a deal.
As other people mention, look for things that you object to, if any.
And make sure the people in your area are okay with a generator, if you're going to use it.
Some people like an RV for shade and windbreak.
Generators, not so much.
But don't stay near camp all the time.
Go see everything.
