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.

"Or you can share if anyone is open to that... Rick and Liz will have a RV and not a vanagon, maybe you can swap spots with them and we can have a more continuous line of Vanagons?"

Beachin' Buses and Vans at Dillon Beach, CA 94929

August 21, 2015 at 1pm to August 23, 2015 at 11am
Dillons Beach/Lawson's LandingNO BOVINES along the seawall :)A casual beach getaway, $70 for the weekend... pricey, but whatcha gonna do? No hook ups or electrical available. Well you could share a site and split the difference.  The Lawson village is on its last legs since the state will be taking over, sad... many of the old trailers have been moved already.I have reserved  site 3-5 along the seawall (water view of Tomales Bay) for myself , Gene and Mike. The seawall is located a short walk from the store/bait shop and pier. You can fish for fish or rock crab off the pier, 1 day fishing licenses are available at the bait shop. You can dig for clams along the seawall at low tide too. Sometimes people will sell their catches of Salmon and Oysters... so the potential food options could be fun. You might be able to hook up for a fishing excursion too (I'm not sure about that) You can rent a boat or bring your own... even a kayak :) Potluck dinner up in the air See More
