VW Camper Family

A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

VW Camper Family

 

WELCOME
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.

HOW TO USE THIS SITE:
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.

Groups:
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.

RULES:
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.

13th Annual Thanksgiving Warm-up and Food Fest at Sandy Beach Campground, Rio Vista, CA

November 11, 2022 at 12pm to November 13, 2022 at 10am
This is #13! It's time to be back together again to consume food and make merry! We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest  before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,Party Central will be at site #4. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site). Musical instruments are always welcome, particularly if accompanied by musicians.As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.A few more things: the reservation section of the park's web site is a bit dodgy right now, and senior discounts aren't on the menu there. If you qualify, go ahead and reserve your spot at the going rate, and make contact with the park by phone to arrange a refund of part of the fee. The point is to grab your…See More

"Keep an eye on the weather forecast. Overnight lows in the upper 40's and Saturday's daytime high may only be in the 60's. There's a chance of showers on Saturday and a 50% chance on Sunday morning. Sure beats the 100-degree heat…"

TrainSpotting 12, June 3-5, 2022 at Hallsted Campground, Twain, Plumas County, CA

June 3, 2022 to June 5, 2022
The Historic Feather River Railroad route runs on the opposite side of the river from the campground. Trains climb and descend the grade at all hours-you will be falling asleep to the rumble of the diesel engines and the squeal of steel wheels on the tracks. If you have never driven through the Feather River Canyon, it is a real treat! The weather can be variable in June.For information on the Hallsted campground, the recreation.gov link is below:https://www.recreation.gov/camping/hallsted/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70560100 FREE things to do in Plumas County:http://plumascounty.org/documents/100_things_plumas.pdfThose looking for hot springs can find them a couple miles up the road. Formerly known as "Woody's", the Feather River Hot Springs are now associated with an RV park…See More
