The map was re-done this year.  Major roads are listed as are the bus 
routes and which bus goes where.  (Although I think I see an error in 
the parking lot bus route.)  There even was a bus schedule printed of 
which buses were running on which days with the times of service (9 a.m. 
to approximately midnight).  The bog bus was a short school bus.  There 
were 5 days of the "black bus" which had air-conditioning plus the bog 
bus.  The black bus was then replaced by a regular school bus.  The 
schedule also listed the routes the two buses would take.

As to bus stops, while there were official ones, you could pretty much 
flag down a bus whenever it went by.  The first week it took the bog bus 
about 20-30 minutes to do its route.  By the middle weekend, it was 
longer.  I asked why and the driver said that it varied depending on the 
state of the road (mud vs. dry), the number of pickups and drop offs he 
   needed to do and whether he found himself following a car or cars as 
they tried to get in and out of camp - and muddy/closed roads.
