After months of knowing we would likely loose Soldad for the 2019 year and looking for an alternative, we have finally found a site to fit the meet and negotiated our requirements with them. 
If you would like to see their website it is www.camplakepiru.com 
 
All military vehicles are welcome, they have WAIVED their NO GOLF CART policy just for us so kick your mules gentleman!
The swapmeet ofcourse is approved and we hope to see all your polished junk set out to sell this year. 
 
Camp sites vary from a few with full hookups to others with just electricity or no electricity.  The prices range from $20-$45 depending on what you want.  Please review the map below and decide what you want.  The campground is full of trees very much like Tower Park/Camp Delta KOA was.
The campgound is going to do the best to keep us together so we are going to fill in the two bottom rows on the left and begin to fan out from there trying to say in an organized gaggle of some type.
So to start with try to pick your sites along Albatros, Duck or Lark. 
 
For RVs that dont get hookups you will have to fill your water tank when you enter and dump your tank when you leave.
 
Fair warnig AT&T is the only cell service that works up on the mountain.  Verizion phones can occasionally get text messaging in some spots.
There is no WIFI in this campground either. So plan accordingly.  A drive a couple miles back into the town of Piru will grant normal services. 
 
Every site has a picnic table and a grill and a FIRE RING! Yes we can have raging bonfires at this campground!
 
For trailer haulers they have a lot you can drop your trailer in that is locked at night for secruity so you dont have to keep it in your site blocking things. 
 
Please dont just call the campground untill you call Richard Johnson and check in and learn how to get your refund from Soledad if you havent already. Richard is available 0800-2000hrs at 619-993-5284
 
 
Piru is a small town, there are only a couple small family restaurants there.  The campground has a store onsite open daily.  Filore has a dennys and Santa Clarita is just several miles to the east near magic mountain, which will have lots of amenties. 
 
We are still working on having chow cooked by a caterer onsite for lunch and dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. No gurantee yet.

If you wish to come to the rally and not camp you have a few options, Piru does not have any lodging or large restaurants.
You can stay in one of the few motels in Filmore, just a few miles to the west of the town of Piru, there is also a Dennys in Filmore.
Your other option is to stay in Valencia a few miles east of the town of Piru, there are lots of hotels as 6 flags Magic Mountian is there and probably larger restaurants as well.  These hotels are likely to cost more than in filmore but be big name brands. I stayed in filmore two years ago and it was a nice motel.
 
The closest airport is Ventura or all the way down to LAX.
