Camp Plymouth SPRING 2022 Swap Meet & MV Show April 26-30, 2022

Post by John Neuenburg » Wed Oct 13, 2021 4:36 pm

The biggie returns to 49er RV Village Resort and adjacent Amador County Fairgrounds the last week of April 2022! Scenic, quaint Plymouth in the Shenandoah Valley Wine Country in the low California foothills will see more hunters of olive drab, forest green, and battleship gray artifacts than they saw gold miners in 1849! This is the 45th anniversary of the largest annual military vehicle event West of the Mississippi. Former annual Spring events were The Patterson Rally, Big Bear Park, Camp Delta at Tower Park, Camp Petaluma, and in April 2019 we moved to Plymouth. We finally found a place with lots of close-in visitor parking! For those unfamiliar with this event, here are the bullet points:
  • ]Swap meet for pros and amateurs. No vendor fee but must rent a campsite or cabin
    Informal military vehicle show. All welcome, any condition, any country of former service
    MV excursion
    Womens' activities
    Military vehicle themed showcases
    Annual raffle, a fundraiser for the extremely non-profit promoter, the Military Vehicle Collectors of California
    RV and travel trailer camping only at the 49er, no tents except free standing canopies for vending, displays
    Tent and car camping at the adjacent fairgrounds
    No admission fee
    No MV registration fee
    No parking fee. Trailer area designated
    MV display/parking space for those commuting from hotel or home
    Practically no visitor parking inside the 49er RV park
    Souvenir event and MVCC merchandise booth
    MVCC General Membership Meeting, all welcome (Camp Plymouth is not just for MVCC members but we welcome all into our club)
    Amenities for 49er guests include pool, spa, cafe, kids play area, washers and dryers, restrooms, showers
    Hotels, B&Bs are nearby
    Grocery store, restaurants, 40+ wineries, and an auto parts store are close

    Visitor parking and the fairgrounds campground are at 18843 Empire Street
MVCC has arranged a discounted block of RV sites and cabins at the 49er. Four night minimum at the 49er. I believe our rate will be good for several days before and after our event, for those using the place as a base for tourism. You must go through Jo-Ann Lesser to reserve a space in our block, not the 49er office. Jo-Ann gives the 49er office a list of who reserved what site in our block. You then contact them to confirm and pay for your site.

She also organizes the large campground at the fairgrounds of mostly dry sites and one row of water/power sites. No minimum stay at the fairgrounds. For fairgrounds sites, pay the MVCC in full before you arrive. Sellers will be in both venues.

For campsite and cabin information, Jo-Ann is at

Reservation form for both campgrounds will be on on the event calendar listing. If you rented a space in April 2021, your name is on it now. Tell Jo-Ann to confirm you want it again, or request a change. There will be a deadline. Unclaimed sites will be up for grabs. Where you were at the last Fall meet does not put your name on that site for the Spring meet.

Tuesday is considered a set up day. Sunday is a pull out day, not a show day.

Details about the MV showcases, excursions, social activities, and meetings will be at

Shameless picture of this writer's fleet and trinkets the September 2021 Camp Plymouth. We hear the 49er has more land and plans expansion, likely more pull through sites and cabins. We don't know when...

The infamous jeep showcase in the arena in 2019. I think 65 here and 10 or 12 elsewhere in camp
