Camp Delta 2018 Swap Meet & MV Gathering, Tower Park Resort, Sept 18-23

Post by John Neuenburg » Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:40 pm

The annual Camp Delta Swap Meet & Military Vehicle Gathering returns to Tower Park Resort September 18-23, 2018 after a very successful 2017 event centered in Campground 2 and it's southern extension CG3. There are some cabins and a couple campsites available in our area, plus more in the newly renovated CG 1 next door and in CG4. There are over 100 sites and cabins rented in our area now.

As usual, no vendor fee, only your campsite or cabin rental. No vending elsewhere because there is no extra space. No admission fee for day visitor/commuters. No parking fee. Visitors park on levee road right next to our event, not in the campground unless in a friend's campsite. Store trailers by facility entrance, not on levee road near camp because we need it for visitor parking.

Details are over on the G Events forum: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=299538
and even more is on the MVCC website in the event calendar area, www.MVCCNews.net.
There is a campground map there with many notes that will help new people understand the layout.

I like new and old in the same sentence. Like newly seen at our swap meets, or new old stock. Both make people sit up and bark.

I might start lightening my load....

Thank you John. I was thinking I just couldn't find it like so many things in my garage! 8)

I posed some info on the EVENTS thread about DISCOUNTS available for new reservations. Since we are past the time when our group discount applies, book at the normal rate BUT look on their website or ask about PACKAGE DEALS. I mentioned a couple good deals....

No but if your question is about low cost options, park management is ok with sharing a site if one name is on it. Call your friends? Another angle for MVCC members is to send a classified ad to our newsletter editor saying you want to share a site. This goes to hundreds of people. Ads are free to members. September issue deadline is real soon .

Go to the reservation page at www.towerparkresort.com and search for tent sites or any of the hookup sites to see what's available. Then look for Package Deal discounts.

Maybe someone reading this has extra space.

If the question is about secluded camping, Tower doesn t have it. There is a small county campground a mile north however.

John, maybe we could designate an area for our homeless members? There seams to be a growing population at every event. I tripped over one of them last time trying to get to the head at 3 am, dang near broke a hip and scared the bejeesuz out of me. Or we could start a go-fund me page? Just throwing ideas out

With a name like blitz you complain about people laying on the ground at 3 a.m.?

Thankfully most sleep in their cars on the levee, the tightwads.. .

I'm going to be there. Would like to meet other California enthusiasts. Will the MVCC have a presence there, like a camp spot number?

The MVCC should have a spot. I'm sure someone will post it. We'll be in site 182 Thursday thru Sunday. Feel free to stop by.
