Is this an event for me and my family? We were planning on going this year, but not if it is a drunk fest.

Been going for a few years and it has always been family friendly. Not supposed to be any drinking on the grounds although Iím sure some people do.

Do you know if you have to make reservations at Twisted Trails or is there plenty of room? Thanks!

I don't know th details of Twisted Trails and camping but if they don't have room there is a campground in Thompsonville (5 miles from Twisting Trails) that may be open by then. It is called Betsie River Campground on Lindy Rd. I would call then first to make sure they are open. By then they should be.

If you're attending the park as well as the blessing, camping is free. The park closes at 9 pm, so if you want more fourwheeling fun after the blessing come on up.

The main entrance into the Jeep Blessing has moved. It is no longer behind the gas station so don't pull in there expecting to get in. We will be closing Industrial Dr to all but Blessing traffic this year. The only entrance to the Blessing is located in the middle of Industrial Dr. Thanks RB

A little more local info please to help keep me organized.

I understand that there will be no designated swap meet area this year. If you want to sell it is done in the parking lot. Will I be able to follow my jeep in with the tow rig and car hauler (to sell from) and park side by side or must the truck/trailer be parked elsewhere?

Thanks.

The parking area is huge and it's first come first serve(front to rear). The parking is done in rows of 2 so as long as your under 36' you can park the truck and trailer together. If it's longer than that you maybe asked to park towards the back of the parking lot. We have enough room to park several thousand Jeeps this year so we wont have a space problem like last year. We don't open till 8am so please do not show up before that. RB
