VW Camper Family

A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

VW Camper Family


Hey everyone! If you found this, you found the online home of some very offline people - The VW Camper Family. People into VW bus and van camping. Get involved in the forum or check out the upcoming events. If you are into VW buses, vanagons, eurovans and camping, you should hang out with us. Really, you should.

Post an event: Post an event that you are organizing or know about. People can RSVP right in the event. Please make any comments about the event on the event's page.

General Forum:
This area is for threads of interest to any VW camper.

PLEASE JOIN THE GROUPS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN! THAT'S WHERE THE EVENT PLANNING HAPPENS! Groups can be created as specific needs come up. Things that are a help to all people, like "campground reviews", are perfect for this category. Or groups in a specific location.

Just two so far:
1. Be nice.
2. Keep the content specific to VWs and camping. All other threads, photos, videos, etc will be removed.

Senior Lifetime Pass rates going up

For all the geezers and incipient geezers out there, you should know that the once-only charge for the Senior Lifetime Pass to US National Parks and Federal recreation land goes up from $10 to $80 on August 28. You are eligible upon reaching age 62. I've had one for seven years now, and it's the best $10 I've ever spent on camping. Details may be found about  halfway down this page:https://www.recreation.gov/marketing.do?goto=acm/faqs/America_the_Beautiful___The_National_Parks_and_Federal_Recreational_Lands_Pass_Series.htmSee More
