Jeepers Jamboree 2012

It may seem a bit soon to begin making plans for events happening next year, but in the case of the Jeepers Jamboree, it’s never too early to start planning. The Jeepers Jamboree is considered by many to be the oldest, largest and toughest Jeep event in the world. It has been broadcast worldwide and has been featured in many magazines and newspapers. Next year’s event promises to be one of the most exciting, the Jeepers Jamboree will be celebrating their 60th anniversary.

The Jeepers Jamboree starts its route in Georgetown, CA. Vehicles will then travel east for over 45 miles over paved and dirt roads. These roads take participants over the dam at Stumpy Meadows and passes through the old cattleman’s stop of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Once the participants have reached Loon Lake, the off-roading adventures begin. Many previous participants can attest to how much fun they have had on the off-roading adventure.

Off-roading on the Rubicon Trail is considered by many off-road enthusiasts to be one of the best off-roading trails. Due to the winter storms that take place yearly, the trail is always changing because of the different ways in which the snow has affected the terrain. There are new and different trails to take advantage of over the rocky sluices and granite slabs that will offer drivers plenty of challenges. The highest speeds that are commonly reached on these trails range from 3 – 5 mph. The route carries drivers across Devil’s Post Pile which is made up of thousands of tons of large boulders and takes drivers past Spider and Buck Island Lakes.

Once driver’s reach Rubicon Springs, they are rewarded with mineral springs and a hotel which provides the sleeping accommodations. At the camping area, drivers will be allowed to mingle and relax while enjoying all of the beautiful scenery the location has to offer. Anyone who decides to participate in next year’s Jeepers Jamboree will not regret their decision. It is a weekend full of off-roading adventures and fun. Start clearing your calendars now; you will not want to miss the chance to participate in the Jeepers Jamboree of 2012.

"You're telling me it's got four wheels, two seats and goes faster than the speed limit? Good, I'm driving."


  1. I’ve heard tales of the Rubicon trail but never had the chance to see for myself. By planning now I’ll be able to make the trip and see what all the hype is about. I agree that for something this important, you need to plan early.


  2. I’ve already put in for my vacation so I can attend. Four other members of our local club will be going with me. I can hardly wait. We’ll be making some side stops along the way. Anticipation reminds me of how I felt as a youngster when Christmas was close and I was making up my wish list!


  3. If it’s an important destination, it’s never too soon to make plans and arrangements. Since this is the 60th anniversary I bet there will be plenty of activities and opportunities that you would not otherwise find. You can bet this will be one of my destinations for the coming year. I really appreciate all the info I find here.


  4. Sign me up! Any time I can escape the California, I do it. 3 of 4 vacation weeks are spent in that great state. I live in Oregon so I’m relatively close but the terrain and weather are significantly different. Job keeps me anchored and I thank God for vacation time.


  5. First of all, i would like to congratulate you for a success in all your jeep events! i am looking forward to read an article on your future adventures.
