Drummond Island Jeep Jamboree – June 15 – 17, 2017

Jeep JamboreeDensely wooded and rocky trails wind through this northern Michigan sportsman’s paradise of more than 40 inland lakes and 150 miles of shoreline.

A short trip by ferry takes you to this gem of an island located just off of Michigan’s remote Eastern Upper Peninsula. Drummond’s trails consist of rugged terrain, mud and water, breathtaking vistas, and scenic bays.

One of the many highlights of this Jamboree is Marble Head where your Jeep® brings participants to the edge of 90-foot bluffs looking down at Lake Huron. And it’s not unusual to see some spectacular wildlife (deer, bear, eagles) that call this island home.

Tow points and CB Radio Mandatory.
