A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

VW Camper Family

 

WELCOME
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.

HOW TO USE THIS SITE:
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.

Groups:
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.

RULES:
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.

12th Annual Thanksgiving Warm-up and Food Fest at Sandy Beach Park, Rio Vista, CA

November 19, 2021 at 2pm to November 21, 2021 at 1pm
This is #12! We missed last year, but let's hope we can all be back together again to consume food and make merry! We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest  before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,Party Central will be at site #4o. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site). As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.See More

"You hand it off to me at around noon. That will give me time to get the coals burning well. We figure it takes about 3 hours to cook and a little more time to set, and we'll plan on having dinner at around 3:30. That should give us some time…"

"We used to deep-fry the turkey, but found that the investment in peanut oil and propane was far greater than a half a bag of charcoal, and many people thought it tasted better on the Weber grill.  If we want to do that, though, please chime in.…"

"Hi All, I recently bought a turkey fryer for another purpose, just needed a propane burner to brew beer and make mead really, but now I have one. 1) Does anyone have reservations to or about a fried turkey? 2) Does anyone experience frying a…"

"Seeing no takers for my campsite, I have cancelled my reservation and thrown it back into the pool. Campsite reservations need to be made two weeks in advance, so there is still time for someone to snatch it up. Carry on!"
