Vanarky in the Ozarks Comes to Ponca

Lovers of van-life camping from across the USA gathered in Ponca, November 5 – 7, 2021 for the 3rd annual “Vanarky in the Ozarks” fall campout.  The event drew 80 vans and 200 people to BOC’s RV park overlooking the upper Buffalo River wilderness.   Open-road van fans traveled from Florida, California and plenty of states in between, including Arkansas.

The fall campout, hosted by Vanarky, featured a robust schedule of activities.  Special activities included a guided hike to Big Bluff , a 12V camping seminar, food truck chili supper, vendor tent displays, evening concerts and light shows on the side of BOC’s historic barn.  The RV park’s outstanding view was also a big hit with participants.
