It’s that great time of year again to start making your plans for which Jeep Jamboree events you are going to attend. So while you are making your modifications on your Jeep, make sure you are marking your calendar and taking care of registration for the many upcoming Jamborees. Here is just a few of the Jamborees coming in April 2010. Click on any Jamboree event and it will take you to the Jeep Jamboree site for registration.
6th Tennessee Mountains 2010, Oak Ridge, Tennessee Apr 22-Apr 24
The Coal Creek OHV Park (also known as Windrock Recreation Area) offers some of the best rock crawling opportunities in the country. Jeep® Jamboree veterans and first-timers alike will enjoy the majestic scenery on the 72,000 acres of off-road bliss. The more difficult trails include off-cambers, hill climbs, rocks, and mud. Experienced anglers consider the nearby Clinch River tailwater to be one of the finest trout fisheries in the country. The valley through which the river flows is a pastoral setting of wooded ridges, limestone escarpments, and pastures. The banks are lined with huge sycamores and silver maples.
17th Cajun 2010, St. Francisville, Louisiana Apr 22-Apr 24
Magnificent gardens, vintage plantation homes, and warm Southern hospitality make St. Francisville a wonderful venue. Here’s your opportunity to conquer nearby trails which cross deep ravines, wind around sandy beaches, and carve through heavily forested areas. The Greenwood Trail features “Rollercoaster” – a winding trail up and down inclines and ravines. There’s also “The Slide” – a steep 30-foot downhill descent with a tight turn below around a well-positioned tree. This region is sparsely populated and densely wooded, offering spectacular plants and wildlife.
Tow hooks mandatory.
20th Arch Canyon 2010, San Juan County, Utah Apr 29-May 01
Set in the heart of Utah’s remote canyon country in the scenic high red-rock desert, this Jamboree takes you through the area of cliffs the Anasazi Indians called home. Participants can view ancient inscriptions and dwellings up close. One of the two trails we use traverses Arch Canyon. Lunch is held within a short hike to the arch that gives the canyon its name. The other trail is more challenging and leads to Hotel Rock, named after its Anasazi dwellings. Limited to a low number of Jeeps, this Jamboree offers a more intimate and friendly setting than most. Meals are served outdoors under large cottonwood trees at the canyon mouth, with overnight rustic camping permitted. Hotel accommodations are located in nearby Blanding.
Tow hooks mandatory. Two participants per Jeep vehicle are required for this trip.
13th Land Between The Lakes 2010, Marshall County, Kentucky Apr 29-May 01
This Jamboree offers a wide variety of trails that lead you through rolling hills, wooded forests, and rocky plateaus. The Turkey Bay OHV area has over 2,500 acres of trails with steep grades, creeks, and rocky terrain. The region also has lots of wildlife including turkey, bobcat, red wolf, coyote, deer, and many birds of prey. Plus, be on the lookout for eagles’ nests along the way – they can be up to 8 feet wide. Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area has 170,000 acres of undeveloped land, so nighttime stargazing while camping on a moonless night is especially good.
Tow hooks mandatory.
