What's the parking situation like there??
I not real keen parking my topless Jeep loaded with gear a mile away in a field somewhere.

I'm thinking on going up early to see if there's still any spots to register for the show. The $20 fee would be worth it to be able to park in the show area.

You won't be the only topless Jeep parking there. There will be over 1,000 parked there. Event planners said they had over 1,100 Jeeps registered this year. Parking on Saturday and Sunday at the fairgrounds is on fairgrounds property, so parking is pretty close. Everyone I went will last year, had our tops off and had items we bought there and had no incident. I read that there were no incidents last year of any kind, even clean up. It was a very relaxed event. All Jeepers were happy and helpful the whole weekend.

Where is everyone staying if they are going for more than one night?

My group will be at the Breakneck Woods Campground in Portersville. About 10-15 minutes from Butler fairgrounds. No reservations needed there-just show up and find an open site. Pretty much tent camping, but they do have a couple cabins. Campground has shower facilities. We're heading up either Thursday evening or Friday morning, depending on all of our work schedules.

Does it matter that I don't bring the Jeep I registered? I'm not in the show or anything, just the trail ride and the like. My YJ's engine isn't looking like it will make the 6 hour drive that I thought it would.

Bear Run told me only 1 tent per site and each site is $28/night. Last year we stayed at Breakneck. Not the best facilities as far as shower and such but the owners are cool and it is cheap. We plan to stay there again this year. Heading there on Thurs for a long weekend.

thanks.
I may be camping and was worried about leaving it loaded with gear. Sounds like it won't be a problem.

See you at Breakneck. Probably saw you last year, my group was there as well. I'll be the site that has 09 orange JK and 94 black YJ. 2 of the 4 of us are heading up Thursday, other two in our group going up Friday.

I think from the event rules are, the registration is for that specific Jeep. If events are not sold out, you may be able to register for the Jeep you plan on bringing. Send them a note on Facebook or contact them through the site and see if you can switch registrations possibly.
