The Travelers

A Northern California RV camping club. Members from the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley.

Club History

The Los Viajaros RV Club was founded in 1960 by a group of San Jose, California IBM employees who enjoyed to camp.  Los Viajaros in Spanish means The Travelers. The RV Club was established as the 1st California branch chapter of the National Campers and Hikers Association (NCHA) based in New York.

Today, the RV Club stands as a separate not-for-profit social organization dedicated to friendship, fellowship and the enrichment of the camping and RVing experience.  We welcome all RV types.

An excerpt from the February 2023 Club Newsletter, 'The Travelers'

A small group of Club Members went on a side trip to Jackson Rancheria in December to see all the beautiful Christmas lights. They toured Sutter Creek and old downtown Jackson and joined the local cuisine. The group highly recommends the Highway Roadhouse and Carvana's Pub n' Grub.  Socializing and fun games at the Club House at night!

Webmaster Note:  Jackson Rancheria's light decorations for the holidays is a true wonderland! They begin decorating in October. You don't need to camp to see the light display.

September  2023 Campout 

The weather was warm with a nice delta breeze. The sites were tight to back-in, but most had plenty of shade. The group gathered at the rigs with the most shade. Thursday afternoon was a Meet and Greet for our new guests Andy and Carol. Carol makes a killer Tex Mex Salsa which everyone wanted the recipe for. 

Members enjoyed an easy Friday, taking time to visit local fares and discovering the excellent restaurant that the Barge. The more adventurous members went kayaking around Bethel Island.

Since this was our Annual Membership BBQ, members enjoyed free steak or chicken on Saturday with side dishes and dessert provided by members.  There was plenty of laughter and surprises during Bingo and LRC games throughout the week.

Tony and Barbara’s wooden bear was secretly dressed up as the good fairy for an early Halloween surprise joke. Everyone had a good laugh. Watch out at the next campout, to see who’ll be wearing the pink “tutu” next!

Our camping year begins in March and goes through December, set by the Camping Director 12 to 18 months in advance.  Normally, there's a travel time of 2 to 3 hours from the San Jose area, and we camp 3 to 4 nights.  While members are not required to attend every outing, we encourage fun and comradery.

We welcome the opportunity to enrich our RV club with NEW members.  Not only are we a group of RV owners, we are The Travelers who enjoy a common social network of interest and friendship.
