Enjoy our wonderful site with green lawns, shade trees, lake breezes, and big blue skies at the Buena Vista Aquatic Recreational Area, 13601 Ironbark Rd, Taft, CA 93268. It is an easy drive over the hill to a lovely park where we have a large lakeside area all to ourselves.
You've heard the old saying that "many hands make light work." Please consider donating a few hours of your time to volunteer at the war. In addition to helping to make it a memorable event you will earn a monetary donation to your favorite SCA territory.
We are looking for four to five groups to sponsor a stone privy for the war. This entails making sure there is paper, light cleaning, and dumping trash. In addition we also need a group to sponsor the second shower truck. Contact the Lady Osanna de Fries, Volunteer Steward, volunteersatcaid-gww.org, for more information.
The Event Chirurgeon is in need of volunteers to staff Chirurgeon's Point. Whether you are a warranted Chirurgeon or not, we have a spot for you. Sign up early and receive a special GWW Chirurgeonate Guild token from the Event Chirurgeon when you report to duty. Lady Blase di Angelo, Chirugeon, chirurgeonatcaid-gww.org

Notice to RV campers
Our use area of the park will not include any full hook up sites for RV campers. We can only provide dry camping spaces (no water, electricity, or sewer) in a paved or dirt lot. Dry RV sites can be reserved through GWW's normal Pre-Reg process. Dry RV campers will be allowed to use the dump station at the full hook up site (approx. 1 mile from the Dry lot). If you require full RV hook ups you must contact Buena Vista Reservations directly at 661-868-7050 or visit their web site at http://www.co.kern.ca.us/parks/buena-vista.asp to make a PRIVATE reservation. This reservation WILL NOT include GWW site fees. Spaces are limited. The full hook up area at Buena Vista is approximately one and a half miles away from the war site via a park road. No transportation will be provided between the full hook up area and the war. Those with a private reservation with Buena Vista must enter the park for camping through the main gate entrance on Hwy 43 and you will be required to check in to GWW via our gate on Golf Course Rd.
