Jeep Clubs in the Carolina Low Country?

I was just wondering if there were any Jeep clubs in the Carolina Low Country? If not, does anyone know where the closest Jeep club to that area is?

Doesn't look like you got much response to your question. I may be moving to Charleston in the spring and was looking for the same thing.

If there isn't one maybe we should start one .

Hey! Unfortunately there isn't a ton of off-roading around the immediate area but there is locally CAJS (Charleston area jeep spot). I know they do get togethers but I don't know of them doing any off-roading trips like some of the upstate clubs. If you're interested in doing any off-roading there's a few of us who go who are non club. Gulches and uwharrie we've done and hoping to do another windrock trip soon. Let me know if you're interested!

It looks like there may be a Jeep club in the area. I haven't been able to catch a meeting yet, but it looks like they meet at a Sonic on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. I found them on Facebook. If you are on Facebook, look for LowCountry Jeep Club.

Tara11, I would be interested in some off-roading. Call me a wimp, but I am looking for somewhat "less adventurous" off-roading to start off with. The Jeep I have now (my 5th Wrangler to date) is still somewhat of my everyday drive, and so needs to last me. But, if you guys do any beginner type trails, please let me know. Maybe one day when I finally get my I-don't-give-a-damn jeep, I will jump on the more adventurous trails. Thanks for your reply!

Two prominent ones:
Palmetto Jeep Club (PJC)
Low Country Jeep Club

Neither are very active anymore on the off road scenes but used to be.
PJC & LowCountry are supported on FB only now. Fuel cost and cost of living put a crunch on the 90's - 2000's trail riding we used to do. Many of the originals are a lot older too so it is hard to find anyone that isn't burnt out on Uwharrie & Gulches.

I do some riding in NC, VA, GA and KY. Been on all the forest roads here but don't get involved in the local group rides much anymore. Just grew tired of the "Break-it" mentally.

H8SPVMT, yeah, that's kind of what I am gathering. I know that there is a meet up of LCJC at the Sonic on the second Tuesday's of the month. I was thinking of going to that just to meet some fellow jeepers.
Are the forest roads any good? As I mentioned above, I am not looking to tear my jeep up, just want to get if off of the roads.
Thanks for the reply!

Mostly crush & run gravel but fun to explore. Having been on every road out there at one time or another I can say, "Don't just wander off with some mapping skills and a map." You might get by with a GPS with the previously mentioned skills.

Stay off unmarked roads (brown signs with FS#) or take the change of getting a hefty ticket. And purposely hitting puddles and splashing mud is truly looked down on as destructive (ticket).
Lots to explore out there. Go with someone that is experienced and has recovery equip. too. just never know.

So I know this is far but thought I'd throw the invite out to you...we're looking at doing a trip to windrock near oakridge, tn later this month. The weekend of Jan 27-29. Let me know if by some random chance you'd be interested in the trek. 2 of us with sports and 1 rubicon all our daily drivers so not looking to get too crazy and torn up. Just could use some nice scenery and some off-road de-stressing!

I just found your past post. Did you find a Jeep club? I am in Pawleys Island and I would like to find some wheeling trails or a club to go Jeepin` with.
Please get back to me when you can

Used to e some easy, sandy trails off Water Tower Rd. I drove them years ago but it looks like some development is taking place out that way now.

Pisgah Nat'l Forest and Cherokee Nat'l forest, Smoky Mountains have a lot of roads to explore if you're looking for scenic rides too. Uwharrie in NC is getting a bit rough on some trails nowadays. Still fun but ya have to be more cautious.

I haven't done any riding here since moving here. I joined Low Country Wranglers , they seem pretty active but I haven't done any rides with them. I just back from Jasper, GA last weekend. It was the annual sheriffs jeepfest. It was pretty fun.
