Anyone going to the Snowshoe, WV Jeep Jamboree?

I'm thinking about making a trip to my first one. July 8th-10th.

never been to a jamboree. I've got no kids, is there any parting at night? Do you run the trails by yourself or in a group. I know it would be cool to see that many jeeps at one show, just didn't know the enviroment.

No idea what my schedule is like, but that's not far from me... I'd definitely try!

I went in '08. It's a great JJ. Usually muddy. If you're towing your rig, be prepared for some twisty, tight roads. I stayed at the Inn at Snowshoe at the base of the mountain, rather than at the resort at the top. That saved some money, put me closer to the only two gas stations in town, and was only a ten minute trip or so from the muster points up at the resort. Have fun.

for a $195 a person, is that just food, trails, and event admission? is camping free? I'm not dogging it, i've never been to a jj, but it seems high for a weekend of wheeling.

No. The trails ridden are, I believe, fire and access roads. Perhaps old logging roads? Depending upon the trail, there can be some pretty challenging stuff. Understand, however, that the max tire size on a JJ is 38" or so, and the Jeeps are street legal. If you have a tricked-out buggy with 44's on it, then everything on a JJ is going to be pretty easy.

Yes, that's what you get for the price. Camping/lodging is not free. Yes, it is expensive for a weekend of wheeling. That's kept me from more than one JJ. JJUSA sells their competence, the fellowship of the event, and the access to trails that the general public can't go on (such as Snowshoe--not as much of a selling point for Jamborees occurring on publicly-accessible land). The reason that I occasionally pay for Jeep Jamborees is for the peace of mind. The trails have been pre-run more than once by the guides, they know how to spot through the tough spots, there won't be any downed trees or something getting in your way, and if something should go wrong, there's a support system in place to help you out. Is it worth it? You decide. They're fun, but the dollar trade-off is pretty significant.

thats what I needed to know, thanks 74cj. It's a shame the jj website didn't tell more. I used to live in tazewell just north of you. I saw they were having a jj at windrock also, might just do the trails and go back and see some friends
