Event Description

In celebration of 4/20!

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 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. And if those run out, there are lotsa other spaces.

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:

(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.



Saturday at 11:00 am in the (TBA) Cornhole area. 

Practicing shall occur on Friday afternoon around beer:30

See Paul for more details.



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 sin carne
Chili with beans
Chili without beans

Roadkill Chili 

Rotel tomatoes

Ranch Style (tm) brand beans of any variety.

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

Please do NOT bring Lentil beans.

If bringing a can of beans 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.

Gene Thanks man!
We need a large space I am bringing the two VW cornhole sets we had a Dubs by the dam. I hope we have a good amount of players again.

Someone mention that a woman, Shelly or Shelby Callahan might have a spot to share. Or anyone I could share with...Thank you~

Comment by Shelby on March 5, 2020 at 9:21am

Hi Diana,

My spot is tentatively already spoken for.  I will know for sure in the next couple of weeks.  It's yours if they back out!

I still have the reservation on site 19 and was planning to release it this weekend.  Diana, if you like we can try to coordinate.  I don't know how long it takes to reappear as "available" but you could start checking the website as soon as I cancel.  We could even try this today (Friday) in case that speeds the process up (with someone in the office to process the cancellation rather than Monday).  Let me know, I'll plan to let it go tomorrow morning otherwise.

Bruce K.
