9/13 - 9/15/2019: Offroad Passport's 10th Annual Event, 4x4 EZ, Dry Camp, RV Access

Located in the cool pines near Strawberry AZ, there's fun for everyone! Enter the Salsa Contest, play a whacky game, win a tee shirt, kick back by the fire! Spend a weekend tent or RV camping with Offroad Passport on the beautiful Mogollon Rim. It's an extremely scenic area with plenty of little gravel roads along the rim to explore. We will be dry camping with no facilities, and while most of us tent camp, the area is accessible by small RV too. Don't be that person hearing about all the great stuff you missed for the next whole year - sign up now!
