The Midwest Vanlife Gathering returns for 2022!

After a too-long hiatus, we're returning to Camp Manitowa-Cedar Point for 2022. Bring your van, your family, your pets, and your good spirits for some laid-back van life vibes. We're going to have a good time!

Each year, nomads of all kinds gather in the serene woods of the Midwest to participate in something truly special.

The Midwest Vanlife Gathering is an inspiring weekend of community, camaraderie, educational workshops, outdoor activities, diversity and inclusion, community-driven live music, kick ass meals, and raising money for some awesome causes. Not to mention tons of van tours, meeting fellow nomads, and soaking up tips and tricks for life on the road!

All are welcome.

No matter who you are, no matter what type of traveler you are, or if you're not a traveler at all. Whether your rig is a van, truck, skoolie, or tent. Whether you're part-time, full-time, nomad-curious, weekender, or just want to hang out with an eclectic and accepting group of people.

Join us.
