Questions about Jeepfest

Im looking in to going to Jeepfest this year and i had a few questions...

1) is there onsite camping available?
2) is there enough to do thats not to extreme to make it worth coming all 3 days?
3) Is it worth the 60 dollar fee?

any other information about the event would be appreciated, Thanks

There is no camping on site. Plenty around it though. There are mild to wild trails and a obstacle course area. Plenty to look at as well.
Yes, I believe it to be worth the cost. Proceeds are going to the sheriff's boys home. A great cause. If you don't want to stay the whole time you don't have to, check out Beasley Knob if it is not raining. There are also miles of FSR in Ellijay (Big Frog Wilderness) basically, yes it will be worth it my book.

The jeep fest is very much worth it. It is a must every year for me. And the forest service roads are all over, just google search them. Somebody might be able to give more detailed info though.

Would love to know more as well. If there are GPS coords, we can explore and add it to the site. Off-Road Trails | JeepsonTrails.com

Im not sure about the GPS cords. Im on a map kinda budget haha. I have a nat, geo trails illustrated map of the Cohutta and Springer wilderness,It shows all the forest service roads and roads that are unimproved, which from what i can tell are old out of service roads. I bought the map with intention of exploring them but i havent got around to it yet. The map also shows all the river access points for fiishing and swimming, the camping spots, and all the hiking trails and there miles.Its a really good map

Can you post a picture of it? It wouldn't be too hard to match the roads that are on the map to the online versions... maybe?

i tried that, this map is the only one that shows the unimproved roads that ive found. As far as pictures it would be nearly impossible to read, the map unfolded is like 6 by 6. you can order them for 12 or 13 dollars from national geographic

DD crew did a tame ride. I think it started on Nimblewell Church Rd to FS28-1 up towards Doublehead Gap Rd.

I just know how to get there. Hiked Jacks River Trail a few times. Wei, I'm sure I will see you at JeepFest. I can fill you in more there.

I am kinda new as to Jeeping the trails.
I could come by to see the event as a day trip.
If I wanted to stay for the evening tunes and fellowship, that might leave me with beer in the belly. Is it possible for me to throw up a tent and walk.?

No camping on site. Also no adult beverages aloud. This is a police function. If your new or have a stock Jeep there will be plenty to do and have fun.
