Schoolhouse Canyon Campground
12600 River Rd, Guerneville, CA 95446

NEW IN 2015:
Breaking my rule about me not organizing anything during the campout, 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 6 and Bus City 7. Buses must be present at the campout in 2015 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!

Unfortunately we can no longer attend.  I yield our spot to others.  A new social obligation arose, plus my parents and my wife aren't going.  Next year we will be there come hell or high water.

Hi VW Camper Fam,

Stoked to come to this! Is a later arrival on the 15th ok? I'm trying to manage getting the 15th off of work, but I may journeying after rush hour Friday night. I am RSVPing for myself (definite) and my wife and son might also be coming but that's pending how my wife's cast removal on the 14th goes. in NH/VT I was always trying to tag onto the "Van Jams" with my friends family and their bus when I was younger. I'm very excited to have found a gathering so close to my SF home.

Bring a hacksaw and someone in the group would love to cut your wifes cast off.

Michelle - yes kids are counted as people for fees.

Comment by Big Blue's Driver on May 4, 2015 at 11:18pm

Jamez - try to be there by 9:00pm. If you can't, we can probably still manage to get you into the gate, but they will start to shut down the office and such around 9. Thanks!

Is there cellphone reception there? My wife will be joining us on Saturday.
Comment by Jamez on May 5, 2015 at 8:56am

I should be rolling in by 8pm, but I hope to show up mid-day Friday!

Cell reception is spotty up in Guernville, I've found if you head over towards the Safeway downtown you usually can get a signal.

My daughter and her family would like to come with me. Can they join us if they don't have a VW ? Tent camp?

Looking forward to this.  Extra fee per kid is a little bit of a put off, but hey, whatcha gonna do right...Hoping we can still squeeze in somewhere after the traffic as we won't be able to get away from the Sacramento area until around 3:00.  Friday traffic is always fun :-p

Laurie, Yes, the more the merrier.
