Honeymoon Heaven

How to top an epic wedding? With an equally memorable camper van honeymoon of course. Bri and Justin set out on their 🚐🍯🌙 for a 3,000 mile journey throughout the Southwest. Bri says, “we’re hooked on van living. We’ve been driving a ton, listening to country music, taking in the insane landscapes, camping, cooking over the fire, curling up with a space heater at night, and stopping at tons of thrift stores and restaurants along the way. Honeymoon in a GoCamp van was the way to go!”

Camp On Public Lands

Pacific City Oregon

Pacific City Perfection

Pacific City, a slightly sleepy beachfront town where sand drifts across parking lots and fishing dories ride the waves into shore, is the perfect Oregon coast town. Go check out Haystack Rock. It is 90 feet taller than the one with the same name in Cannon Beach!

Go Geocaching

Turn your next road trip into a treasure hunt! There are over 3 million geocaches in the world, hidden containers or “caches” that contain tiny treasures and notes which participants seek and find using GPS. Chances are good that you’re surrounded by several geocaches right this moment! Chances are even better that once you climb aboard a GoCamp camper van, you’ll drive straight into the motherlode of geocaching adventures.
