Event Description

Join us on 4/20 day!

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 try and 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 8,9,10 or 11. 

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: 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 County Campgrounds are smoke-free and they're quite serious about that.

Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.



Look in your pantry. Grab only *ONE* 14 oz. (or so) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring that can (along with 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.


Bring along one 14 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 with Eye of Newt
Chopped tomatoes
Chili con carne
Chili with beans
Chili without beans
Ranch Style (tm) brand beans of any variety.

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

If bringing a can won’t work for you, then bring a loaf of pre-made Garlic bread 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 and an appetite.

Bryce & Kathy: His Eminence, KampnKing (AKA Ralph) is also willing to share.

Sorry for not responding sooner. We WILL attend and would be honored to share with either Claire or KampnKing. Shall I reach out to them individually? We will naturally pay them for our portion of the campsite.

We're relaxed folks that enjoy VWs, camping, wine or beer (to share) and an occasional recreational name of this campout. We look forward to bringing "The Toaster" to meet up with everyone and relax.

Oh, naturally we'll bring our bongos w/amplifiers and a big box of fireworks (just kidding).

Yes, reach out to Ralph or Claire.

Have written Claire (first), we'll see what she says. Thank you. -Bryce & Kathy

I just noticed this is both Easter weekend and the beginning of Passover. FYI.

"Waiter, there's a hare in my soup."

We would love to share your site Ralph. Are you open to me, my guy and the dogs?

Comment by KampnKing on March 5, 2019 at 12:50pm

Sure sounds good.

It's a little further away from the main encampment, but not much.
