Who doesn’t love the quirkiness of an old VW bus?

What started as a split-window campout has turned into a Volkswagen extravaganza with VW buses coming from all over the country for a giant campout at Lake Havasu State Park. Check out VW’s buses of all vintages and types! Discover outdoor fun under the sun as you take a trip down memory lane at the 23nd Annual Buses By the Bridge. Gather the kids on Saturday so they can burn off some energy in the bouncy house. For the adults, there are hot air balloon rides and a chili cook-off. The grand finale at this ode to the classics is a delicious pancake breakfast on Sunday morning.

$2 per person for walk-in spectators, good all weekend
