"Good to see you again! It looks like I'll be there after all. Debra has been able to do the eye-drop thing herself, and friends have volunteered to be on call if she needs anything else."

"Some sites have electric, and I think Regis has one if anyone needs to cook something or charge up a device. I've only been here a few times, so I don't know if there's a trail from the campground down to the reservoir."

May 16, 2024 at 12pm to May 19, 2024 at 11am
We are starting this weekend one day early this year! Check in is at noon on Thursday, May 16th.  One lucky bus or van (including occupants) will get their camping for free from Ranger Chris! Only Ranger Chris knows what lucky camper this will be. There is no such thing as reservations for this event! Drive in and pick your spot or join another camper and make new friends.The campground is closed to the general public until Memorial Day. But, Ranger Chris opens it JUST FOR US the weekend before! It’s a secret - it’s special! Trust us - this is our 16th year! The gate will open this year on Thursday, May 16th at noon. That’s right - we are adding one more day to this amazing weekend.There will be space for you - no reservations needed. We have never turned anyone away. We love that this event brings 60-80 VW’s every year!What makes this event so special - the beautiful setting in the redwoods, hot showers, flush toilets, dishwashing stations, access to a private beach on the Russian…See More

"Yeah, I hear ya.  I wish I knew more about the CG terrain.  I have a feeling site 7 is on the hilly side.  There has to be a top that offers somewhat level ground.  I'll find out soon enough.  I'm thinking the…"

"Interested! Any news on the senior discount thing? I see that sites 7, 22, and 36 are pretty spread apart, and there are 18 sites still available. Anyone know if the outer sites have lake views? Or if it's OK to share a spot? We'd be happy…"

420 In The Foothills at Lime Saddle CG, Lake Oroville

April 19, 2024 at 3pm to April 21, 2024 at 12pm
Saddle up Volks!VWCF is going to the foothills near Lake Oroville at Lime Saddle Campground. This place is beautiful this time of year whilst it's still green and the wildflowers are out. Soon after, this place is parched and HOT. LS is fairly new, with flush commodes and showers. There's a nice short trail amongst the oaks with an explosion of wildflowers. If you have a boat there's a marina nearby.The old VWCF adage holds - Bring firewood. Bring tasty beverages. Bring a friend. Have fun.hope to see you there!See More
