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.

Train Spotting 5-2014 Northern California at The Feather River Canyon-near Quincy, Northern California

Join us in the scenic and historic Feather River Canyon at Hallsted Campground in the Plumas National Forest.

Reservations now available at:http://www.recreation.gov/welcome.doThe 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 natural and cultural resource treat!100 FREE things to do in Plumas County:http://plumascounty.org/PDF/100_things_plumas.pdfAs usual, we have scheduled this for the weekend before the Deschutes River RendezVW for those that want to…See More
