Event Description

We are starting this weekend one day early this year! Check in is at noon on Thursday, May 16th. 
One lucky bus or van (including occupants) will get their camping for free from Ranger Chris! Only Ranger Chris knows what lucky camper this will be. 

There is no such thing as reservations for this event! Drive in and pick your spot or join another camper and make new friends.

The campground is closed to the general public until Memorial Day. But, Ranger Chris opens it JUST FOR US the weekend before! It’s a secret - it’s special! Trust us - this is our 16th year! The gate will open this year on Thursday, May 16th at noon. That’s right - we are adding one more day to this amazing weekend.

There will be space for you - no reservations needed. We have never turned anyone away. We love that this event brings 60-80 VW’s every year!

What makes this event so special - the beautiful setting in the redwoods, hot showers, flush toilets, dishwashing stations, access to a private beach on the Russian River just across the road. It’s a short drive to Korbel Winery or Stumptown Brewery and downtown Guerneville.

We do encourage sharing your space if we have a large turnout.

Simply RSVP here so we know how many to expect or contact Laura May at 707-867-9378 with any questions.

Cash only and firewood available for purchase, Please visit the website for details at www.schoolhousecanyon.com

I sure hope to be there... I've got a streak going that I don't want to break!

Best VW event near the Russian River! Can't wait to bring the D-Cab camping again.

Sadly I will miss this year after all.  Heading to TN for a memorial.  TN y'all.  Pray for me! :-)

Message to Jane and Denise (and anybody else who wants to chime in): I will indeed be bringing the Coleman camp oven and stove... maybe two, if anybody else wants to do a Pizza Night on Friday or Saturday. I'm posting it here because I don't know if the message part of this site is working properly.

Sorry will miss everyone at Bus City.  Stupid health stuff.  Have fun.

@John LaTorre Hi, I'd love to bring some pizza makings and try out your Coleman oven. I don't think I've seen one! Let me know if this is ok to join in. Thanks, Emily
