The spot looks good. For those unwilling to camp there seem a be a handful of vacation homes, rooms, flats and beds available in the area (10-25 minutes of driving); especially if 2 people or more are sharing, it's attainable.Called a campsite I found that might be suitable:
+ generally speaking space is available, my preferred spot on their land (off the main campsite) is currently offered to helping organizations if they need space for containers or whatever, but he hasn't heard back and somewhat far away from an actually flooded place, and would rent it out if he doesn't hear back from anyone in a few days
+ he also got a long strip of what is practically 20 camper lots that we could use, we'd probably have to get a bit creative with separating tents/cars and a community area
+ there is a local club that rents out a party tent, but availability is unknown
- they have a small selection of rental huts, but they're all either unavailable due to renovations or rented out on the Ringmeet weekend
- there are no hotels in the town in question, only 2 "vacation homes", both are n/a
- I haven't found hotel rooms available closer than 10km in Daun.
- prices are higher than other campsites, although I haven't dug into the details yet or talked to him about a group rate.

Distance to the tourist entrance
Map of the campsite (clickable version here) - definitely available spots are the lots on the bottom right "164 - 198", the strip of green, possibly and preferably available is the yellow-green square on the left with the camper and tent symbols. That is commonly empty, and would be ideal for us, especially since the sanitary installations are there, and not half a mile away like on the other spot.
So, the question now goes out to everyone, both the campers if you think this would be an ok location with either spots (strip on the road or field in the back), and to the hotel people, if you can/would camp instead, or find a hotel that you need to drive 10-15 minutes to, which reduces drinking options. But if there are some sober people, late night hotel runs could be done, as long as some cars are left at the hotels for people to get back to the campsite.
Since the hotel people have the bigger impact here, I'll tag them for faster response.

This is by no means a decisions for this campsite, this is merely the first one I found that seems unaffected and able to accomodate us.
