Annual Soup Or Bowl Campout at Sandy Beach Park, Rio Vista, CA

February 11, 2022 at 2pm to February 13, 2022 at 11am
Our annual escape from Superbowl Madness. It will be our usual set-up .... wine, food, companionship (bring the wine and bring or buy the wood). Also, musical instruments are welcome, and maybe we can jam a little.Friday night is pizza night ... bring your little Coleman camp ovens or use ours, and make and bake an 8" pizza. (You provide ingredients, of course.)On Saturday, the legendary 'Soup or Bowl' competition will take place once again! Here's how it works: Prepare a batch of something hot and delicious to share that can be served in a bowl. Some examples would be chili, stew, Jambalaya, a hearty soup or anything else that's yummy. Bring your entry to the serving table no later than 4:00 pm. Using ballots, all attendees will rank the entries from best to the not-so-best. Those with the most votes will receive *VALUABLE PRIZES*, a snazzy ribbon and eternal bragging rights. Runner-ups will also receive a snazzy ribbon along with the honor vested to participants. If you want to…See More

12th Annual Thanksgiving Warm-up and Food Fest at Sandy Beach Park, Rio Vista, CA

November 19, 2021 at 2pm to November 21, 2021 at 1pm
This is #12! We missed last year, but let's hope we can all 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 #4o. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site). As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.See More

4/20 campout at Lake Solano County Park

April 22, 2022 at 2pm to April 24, 2022 at 12pm
In celebration of 4/20!We will be camping again at Lake Solano County Park campground, which is technically in Winters, but somewhat closer to Vacaville. You'll need to reserve a site for yourself (and maybe your pal) in the range of sites from #39 to 45. That's the main VW area. If those run out, then consider snagging sites 9,10 or 11. And if those run out, there are lotsa other spaces.PLEASE SHARE YOUR SITE. Or don't. No worries.This campground is easy to get to, has a swell nature center, fishing opportunities and has unabashed roaming peacocks. Saturday night will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!-----------------------------------------------------------------------Important notes:(1.) This campground LOCKS ITS GATES at 9:00 pm. If you do not arrive before they lock the gates, you will be camping outside the gate until the following morning.(2.) Although this event occurs near 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano County Campgrounds are smoke-free and they're quite serious…See More
