Join us for the 18th Annual Buses by the Big Duck VW Campout from June 1st through June 3rd at Indian Island County Park and Campground in Riverhead, NY!
We'll be camping in a reserved group areas 2 and 4, on sites equipped with electric and water.
We never run out of room, and last minute arrivals are always welcome! Brings your bikes, bathing suits, canoes, and kayaks to enjoy the bay!

Friday's welcome-party theme is "Superheroes!" in memory of our friend Dave who passed since our last campout. Dave's VW's were all named after Marvel Superheroes like Ben Grimm, "The Thing"

While not required, if you know how many people will be in your group please consider RSVPing
.
Remember, pot-luck is on Saturday evening followed by a group campfire!

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Suffolk County Parks changed their pricing for groups in 2017.
The County now requires at least 50% of campers to have a Green Key - or, pay significantly higher pricing.
Since many of our guests are from Nassau County and New England (and non-resident pricing is now at $39/night!), in order to accommodate everyone while keeping site rates reasonable the following prices will be in effect again for 2018:
$30/night - Resident or Non Resident
While the current prices from Suffolk County are about $5 less per night (for a Suffolk Resident with a Green Key), each of us covering a little more helps to ensure that we don't disinterest campers from beyond our quaint little island.
Your CASH-ONLY payment will be collected by Mike at the group site. But, please check in at the front gate upon your arrival to the campground.

Pets are allowed in the campground, but must be licensed, and vaccinated.
You must have the actual rabies certificate, and a license with you. The tag alone is not proof enough.
Dog's must be leashed and under the control of their owner at all times.

Be sure to invite your friends, share, and like the event on Facebook!

That is pretty cool of you to do!

Should I bring a kayak? Are there decent public (non-resident) launch spots?

There is a beach alongside the campground. Not too much farther than you'd have to walk if we were at Winter Island in Salem.
