We were thinking of driving out Friday evening and coming back Sunday evening.
What is Granny Grose's Buses? Well, it's just another reason to bring out the Bus or Bug and camp with the family, along with fellow Volkswagen owners. We have been camping with Granny Grose for 16 years.
My family and I have always enjoyed camping. But never experienced the fun and absolute joy of camping in a VW Bus! On my 22nd birthday, I bought my first Bus. We started attending VW Shows. Met some of our closest friends through our love of Buses. We would camp before and after shows. And we always had talked about starting our own lil' campout.
A quick planned first GGB campout was held in May 2005 with just 8 Buses. In 2006, we jumped to 34 Buses! 2007, Granny Grose's saw 43 Buses from 12 States, 2008 grew again to 46 Buses. In 2009, GGB peaked at 75 Buses & 5 Bugs! In 2010, we hosted 70 Buses, 2 Bugs, & 1 Thing from 14 states and 2 countries! May of 2011....somehow on a soggy weekend...we had a record 76 Buses! In 2012, we beat the record, yet again, by one...77 Buses(82 VWs)!! 2013 hosted 72 Buses! 2015 hosted 54 Buses, 2 Beetles, and 1 Rialta

Prices are still an amazing $15.00 per Bus per night. Electric and Water available for all who need it. No need for any reservations. I will be in camp from Wednesday evenin, on.
We will coordinate kayak runs. So bring out your gear! Also plan for the Saturday morning breakfast and a Tommy Two Buses Memorial Ice Cream Cruise, again. We’ll have some acoustic entertainment by our very own Joe Murphy Saturday evening. Heck, maybe we’ll do an open mic night for anyone who wants to jam.
Please place T-shirt orders with Jim Nolan. There will not be the normal extra amount of shirts at the event this year. So grab your GGB13 T-shirt now!
I’m truly not aiming for any numbers this year. I just want my closest Bus friends to come enjoy a peaceful weekend along the river with me so we can reminisce about Granny and the Good Ole Days. Let’s Camp!
