Event Description

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 about that.

Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.



Look in your pantry. Grab a 14 oz. (or bigger) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring along that can (and a bowl and spoon for yourself) to the camp out. We will add the contents of your contribution to a base of beef and onions. There will be plenty. It will be supervised by Adults.


Bring along one 14 -15 oz. can of any of the things listed below:

Pinto beans
Red Kidney beans
White beans
Navy beans
Piquinto beans
Diced tomatoes
Diced tomatoes with Italian spices
Diced tomatoes with Jalapeños
Crushed tomatoes
Chopped tomatoes
Rotel tomatoes
Chili con Carne
Chili sin Carne
Chili con Zarigüeya
Ranch Style beans of any variety

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

Please do NOT bring Lentil beans.

If bringing a can of beans won’t work for you, then bring corn bread, tortillas or a scrumptious dessert. Or a bottle of wine. We like wine. Or firewood. We like that too. If that won’t work either, then just bring yourself, a bowl, a spoon, an appetite and a new joke.

I've got all these updates input to the map.  Keep 'em coming!  (additions hopefully)

I'll post another, final version early that week of the event.  By the way, John and Jan C. will be sharing Karen and my site too (19).

Comment by Melissa Boyd on March 11, 2022 at 11:15am

Thanks; we appreciate the offer! Does that site have electrical hookups? We like to plug in our fridge if we can, but could manage without.

Comment by Kristin and Jim on March 11, 2022 at 2:51pm

Melissa, I don't think there's hookups at #9

Comment by Cathi Carnes on March 11, 2022 at 3:23pm

Comment by Melissa Boyd on March 11, 2022 at 5:44pm

Thanks Cathi & Louise! That would be awesome! We'll plan on sharing #45 with you. (And thanks again to Kristin and Jim for the kind offer!)
