Can I drop off my camper early and are pets allowed?

Yes, you can drop off your camper early!! We realize that some people will trailer their Jeep and need to pull a camper, but only have one tow vehicle. If you would like to drop off your camper before the event, you can do so starting Monday, August 12th free of charge. This is encouraged, as you must have your camper on-site by Friday, August 16th, by 8PM. The camper cannot be connected to electric & water until your reservation begins. You do have the option of paying for additional nights at the same rates above if you will be staying on-site (or if your camper requires electric while it sits).
You can also pick up your camper later as well. You have up until Friday, August 23rd to remove your (disconnected) camper from the fairgrounds.

Yes, pets are permitted in the campground ONLY and must be on a short leash at all times. Pets are not permitted in the Jeep Jam vendor area and they are not permitted in the Jeep on the obstacle course or trail rides. The only exception is service animals.
