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.

4/20 campout at Lake Solano County Park

April 20, 2018 at 12pm to April 22, 2018 at 11am
Join us on 4/20 day!We will be camping this time at Lake Solano County Park campground, which is technically in Winters, but somewhat closer to Vacaville. In an attempt to fend off giant motorhomes, we have locked up a whole row of desirable camp spots (with utilities!) in advance for our group.Most of these sites will be shared (two buses per site) and are in the range of sites #39 to 45. (In the unlikely event that we run out, then consider snagging sites 8,9,10 & 11)This campground is close by, has a swell nature center, offers fishing opportunities and has quite a few roaming peacocks. Saturday night will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!-----------------------------------------------------------------------Important notes: PLEASE READ!(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 on 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano…See More
