Event Description


The campground is closed to the general public until Memorial Day. But, Ranger Chris opens it JUST FOR US Friday morning. It’s secret and it’s special! Trust us - this will be our 15th year! The campground gate will be open on Friday at 9 am. 

There will be space for you - no reservations needed. This event has had anywhere from 60-80 VWs. There will be room for you. We do encourage sharing your space if we have a large turnout.  

No early birds please! Friday is the first day you can come. You are welcome to extend your stay if you want to stay the week.

Simply RSVP here so we know how many to expect and then just show up. For those of you who show up, you know why you come back.

Is the "cash only" a new thing? I think I remember paying via credit card once. But I'm glad that the event is happening again, and props to Laura for making it happen!

Hi John- looking forward to seeing you in May. I believe payments have always been in cash. He may have accepted cards a really long time ago. Hope you are well and your bus fix was minor after the last camp out.

The bus is up on stands at the moment... I'm rebuilding the rear brakes (new shoes and cylinders) but it should be up and running again soon. I hope  I see you before May, though!

We are planning our Westy West Coast road trip (we live in Minnesota) and have Bus City on the calendar!

Miracle of miracles, my hubby is joining me this year. He’s actually sleeping in Beulah for 2 nights voluntarily. So I’m hoping to snag a space in the electric spots because of his CPAP.

Just checking if it is okay to bring our family Labrador retriever to Bus City. Campsite page indicates $7 for dogs, with some bread restrictions. Thanks

Labs are fine, Jeff. The only prohibitions are breeds that were bred to fight, such as bulldogs and pit bulls, AFAIK. 

And folks, whoever arrives first, be sure to cordon off an electric spot for Wendie.

Thanks much John.  I plan to get there early Friday.

You should be fine then, Wendie. That's when the site opens.
