California, 40th Annual West Coast MV Rally

April 18, 2017 - April 23, 2017

The biggest annual MV swap meet and MV gathering in the Western U.S. is being MOVED from Tower Park to scenic Petaluma in Sonoma County this April!

Location is the San Francisco/Petaluma KOA, 20 Rainsville Road, just off Stony Point Road north of town. Reason for the move to Petaluma is the campground at Tower Park was purchased by Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resorts and they are doing a complete renovation that is shrinking the number of campsites, plus creating a water park. It is now too small for our Spring meet (but our Fall meet will return there). After an exhaustive search for a large enough campground with amenities, we chose this very nice KOA. The biggest difference is there are many long pull-through campsites suitable for sharing, dozens of small sleeping cabins along with large lodges, sites with various combinations of utilities, a party building, large grass fields, and great MV driving opportunities on beautiful country roads. Several excursions are being planned! Petaluma restaurants and antique stores are nearby.

The Military Vehicle Collectors of California remains your host and we will have a 40th Anniversary party on Friday night with food and music (it will be good to be a member…) Discounted camping rates have been negotiated and they are valid for “early birds” arriving the Sunday and Monday before the official start. There is a 4 night minimum, plus an option for those who can only attend on the weekend. Details will be up soon on the MVCC website. The last Sunday is not a show day. As usual for our Spring meet, our own Jo-Ann Lesser is our “Wagon Master,” handling campsite and cabin assignments. KOA will not accept a reservation until Jo-Ann puts you on the list. Ask her about the rates for sharing sites. Wristbands will be given to each camper, and if you have extra bands you may leave these at the office to admit friends who commute. Day-user MVs are welcome!
