This is the biggest rock crawling, off-roading, get rowdy weekend of the year in Disney…hopefully you’ve already made your plans to be here.
But if you don’t already have a place to stay…well, good luck! But you might get lucky HERE.

Back to the event, the registration booth will be at City Hall in Disney.

It has grown into the biggest event in the South Grand Lake area and on the the biggest events in Oklahoma with over 14,000 people expected to be in Disney and on the rocks and filling every campground and hotel space for miles around.
