Preparing for your trip
Over-prepare for the weather!
It's Texas, so it could be hot, cold, dusty, wet or muddy, or all the above. Bring rain gear, extra clothes, extra tie downs for tents, towels, etc. Remember the Jambo fun continues is Rain or Shine!
Bring on the Campfire
Currently there are no fire bans and we've had plenty of rain so don't expect one to be in effect anytime soon.
The most crucial item we can recommend for the Toyota Jamboree (or any off-roading event) is communications, even if its a handheld. It is required to have either a FRS or GMRS radio at Jamboree.
Other recommended items include:
Planning for food
Food vendor on-site
We will have a two food vendors onsite this year serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will be adding their menus soon
Those who purchased added meal upgrades to their registration will have access to the following two meals Friday and Saturday 5pm-6pm
- Friday: Brisket Tacos! and a drink by Bodacious Bar-B-Q
- Saturday: 2-Meat with 2-sides Texas BBQ with drink by Bodacious Bar-B-Q.
Resturants in town

ICE is available for sale at the BMRA front office and will be staffed during the day.Back to Top
Barnwell Mountain has primitive camp sites throughout the park. Many of them will have porta-johns added by Toyota Jamboree during the event.
Its open camping throughout the park, but there are designated camping areas.
BMRA have made extensive repairs to the main roads allowing us to again add porta-johns to select campsites throughout the park. Which ones is dependant on several factors, we will communicate once we know.
Camping is first come, first serve. Reserving campsites is not allowed. Large community tents need to be approved before hand.
See more information and a camping sites on a map
Those who purchased Overlanding camping packages or passes must stay in the camping areas near the pavilion. They cannot go past the RV sites to venture deeper in the park without a Trail Pass.
BMRA has two shower facilities to help wash away a long day of wheeling. One is located at the BMRA office and the other is right next to the pavilion.
Plan for long wait times for showers. We wish we could bring in more showers, but its not possible
