FOREST CITY | The first ever Vintage Forest Camper Rally Event was held the weekend of Sept. 15 – 17, 2017 at Pilot Knob State Park, Forest City.
The event was organized by owners of vintage Forester Campers, which were built in Forest City, many in the 1960s.
Marlen Hanson, of Forest City, assisted with coordinating tour activities and providing history on the Forester manufacturing facility.
A total of 29 vintage Foresters, and their owners, attended this year’s rally coming from Colorado, Missouri and all over Iowa.
Campers stayed at Pilot Knob State Park. While in Forest City, they visited The Mansion, shopped Forest City, toured the original Forester manufacturing plant, courtesy of Holland Contracting, and held a tour of campers.
Planning is already underway for the 2018 Vintage Forester Campers Rally Event.
