"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #37" will be held rain or shine over the long Labor Day holiday weekend, Friday, Sept 1st thru Sep 4th, 2023. We will gather again at the "group use" campground at Indian Creek Recreation Area. This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground is located right alongside 18,000 acre Mark Twain Lake, about 30 miles southwest of historic Hannibal, Missouri. This is a beautiful, federally-run campground with paved roads and parking pads and nice facilities. Most conveniences are available in nearby Monroe City or Hannibal.

On both Friday and Saturday evening we plan to have campfires along with VW and door prizes, and parts swapping in addition to the "site-to-site" socializing that this VW camping event is famous for. On Saturday morning we are planning another of our famous "Bus caravans" over to historic Hannibal, the boyhood home of Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. "Mark Twain." You'll have lots of time to explore the haunts of his hometown, or tour "Injun Joe's cave." You won't want to miss it!

On Saturday afternoon registered campers can stroll the campground to vote for their favorite VW transported in several categories, and that evening owners choice awards will be presented in several Type 2 classes in addition to a drawing for any vendor and participant-donated door prizes. If you have any neat VW-related items to donate, please bring them along. On Sunday you are free to enjoy the lake or visit other regional highlights. It should prove to be a relaxed, fun weekend full of great Volkswagen experiences and new friendships.

We are planning to have a "vintage lantern walking tour" on Saturday evening, so get your old and new lanterns out, dust 'em off and get them working and bring them along for the lantern-lit walking tour of the campground! We may even have a best and worst working lantern award or two, who knows!

Our private camping facilities inside the Indian Creek Recreation Area include our own large, private "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch" group area with some electric hook-ups (first come, first served), fishing, water-sports (bring your water toys), a children's playground, a huge pavilion shelter, toilet and shower facilities, and a nearby boat ramp. The all inclusive camping/event fee is $35 per VW for the entire weekend.

Only VW’s that are registered and camping will be admitted into the BNNTA group campground area! Now, please read that last sentence again!

Sites in the BNNTA group campground area can not be reserved in advance. The gates to our campground will be open for arrivals and site selection on Friday. If you arrive earlier, you could stay nearby in the regular "main campground" within the Indian Creek Recreational Area. Although there should be plenty of room, the earlier you arrive the better.

We are looking forward to your arrival for a long holiday weekend full of Volkswagen fun. Please pass the word around to your VW friends about this long-running Volkswagen camping festival held over the upcoming, long Labor Day holiday weekend!

So wipe down and pack up those Transporters for the cruise over to Mark Twain Lake for the "Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #37" campout on Friday, Sept 1st thru Monday Sept 4th, 2023 near Hannibal, Missouri. Please see the website below for lots of photos and information and a link to a mapping program to find your way to BNNTA.

Concrete, Washington

it's that magical time of year again when the forest is gleaming with fresh foliage, the air is warm and clean and camp fires are still allowed. So let's load up the bus, Vanagon (or whatever you have) and catch up next the serene beauty of Baker Lake. Bring your tube, paddle board and swim suite, along with everything you will need to camp as there are no amenities at this location. This is a free event and it's first come first serve. All campsites have fire rings, tent pads and there is a pit toilet on site.

The campsite is called Lower Sandy at the end of Forest Rd 1122, .08 miles north of the Horseshoe Campground turn-off on Baker Lake Rd. It's a bumpy 2 mile dirt road so drive slow.

Directions: Take I-5 to Hwy 20 then head east. Take Baker Lake Rd north to FR 1122 (look for a VW sign) and drive to the end.
