Were I you...
First morning possible, all of you plan to eat at Two Dog Flats.
Then let one person go over and begin circling the camp ground looking for someone leaving---and grab the spot.
The Ranger doesn't have to be there for you to secure a camping spot.
ALL the CG's last year were filling early.
It seemed every morning I drove out there, all
the CGs along the Sun Road from one end to the other had "FULL" signs posted.
You cannot get there too early imo.
Not these days, given what attendance was last year, and they are predicting another record year this year.
