Josh, as I said in the beginning, since a lot of people are close, it doesn't make sense to spend that kind of money to ride a jamboree at a park that is near your home. I wouldn't spend the money to ride the jamboree that is close to my home!!! But for a lot of people who would like to either vacation in the area or have always wanted to go to an area, it just makes perfect sense. Combine jeeping with your vacation, get three GOOD meals a day, a chance at several thousand $$$ prizes, be guided on trails that you would not normally be able to run or in some cases, never be able to get on because the area is closed to jeeping except during a jamboree. Also a lot of the money that you spend on a jamboree goes to insure you against accidents while participating in a jamboree. Also one other thing, which is minor but the parks used or the private land used charges a fee for that use. Enough of my rambling but as I said above, think about doing one as a vacation or doing one away from your home area and just see what they are all about. You will make a lot of friends because you all are there to enjoy one thing, jeeping!
One Jamboree that is great is the Gateway to the Cumberlands, which is held on private mountains in Eastern KY/TN on the third weekend of Oct.
