Event Description


The campground is closed to the general public until Memorial Day. But Ranger Chris opens the campground Friday morning JUST FOR US. It's secret! It's special. We've been doing this for 6 years!!!! Trust us. The campground will be open on Friday. There will be space for you. Thanks!

Simply RSVP here so we have an idea on how many might show up and then show up! No worries!

For those of you who have been, you know why you come back.

We will be announcing the winner of the Schoolhouse Canyon Park / VW Camper Family "Adventurer Award". The award will be awarded to the bus that drives the most miles between Bus City 9 and Bus City 10. Buses must be present at the campout in 2018 (and had to be at 2017) to win!

Also Schoolhouse owns 30 acres across the street and a private beach just for the campground. It's just a five minute walk down the river trail. So bring your swim suits!

Exactly Craig. Also, wandering around with a beer in your hand to meet everyone is a favorite thing to do. Stop by our camp, I've got beer and cocktails to share! ..... See you all this weekend!!

Hi All, I just joined the "VW Camper Family" group. My wife and five-year-old son will join the event for the first time. I have a few questions. What time will we be able to get into the park on Friday? The park website says 1p. Do all the campsites have fire rings/grills and picnic tables? Should we bring our own firewood? I wasn't sure if it will be sold there since this is pre-season. Thanks!

Each campsite has a fire ring, you can buy firewood there, don't know the price, but it's reasonable. He also rents inner tubes for the river.

"What time are people arriving? Can we get into the campground before 3p? The Schoolhouse park website lists check in at 1p."

Richard - it's probably open by now. He opens early for us.

  Anyone know the cost for weekend  camping? Or do regular rates apply?  Thanks 

Comment by Bryce & Kathy on May 18, 2018 at 1:29pm

To the best of my memory from last year, the regular rates apply.

Sad not to be able to attend this year. Too much going on with selling up to go home. This is my favourite camping weekend and best people of all my time in CA. Thank you for all the nice times, great conversations and happy memories I'll be taking back to England. This is just one of those moments!
