 02/28/201512th Annual Bus BRRR Presented by Buses by the Beach!
Feb. 28 - March 1, 2015
Pedro: pnoceanwesty@gmail.com www.busesbythebeach.orgPokagon State Park in Angola, Indiana

Bus BRRR is definitely for the true camping enthusiast and a great use of a VW Bus! Temperatures can and have dipped below zero at night. This doesn't stop us VW Bus diehards from coming out. This one night camp out is held on the last Saturday the toboggans are available each year at Beautiful Pokagon State Park in Angola, Indiana. Each site includes an electric hook-up so you can keep warm with an electric heater. We also have a very large bonfire going all Saturday and Sunday morning.

Lots of fun, but there are costs involved. Contact Pedro for more information.
