This is an event that is being conducted on the Uwharrie National Forest and is authorized under a Special Use Permit.


This event is $FREE to Old North State members. Become a member, or renew your membership for $25.00. All members, must register through this site. Pre-registration is very helpful because it allows us to plan a little better.

In keeping with supporting America's military, membership and admittance to this event is FREE to Active Duty and Reserve members of our Armed Forces.

Trail fees are $5.00 a day, and are paid directly to the forest service at a pay station in the Outpost store near the campground. Both members and non-members are responsible for their own trail fees.


The fee for Saturday night supper is $5.00 per person. You can expect this meal to be a fried chicken dinner from Bojangles.

Event Shirts

A short-sleeved T-shirt will have a new URE! inspired illustration proudly displayed on the back and the Old North State logo on the front. T-shirt orders will close at Noon on Monday, October 23rd. As you may know from previous years, we won't have any available for sale at the event. Shirts are $15.00 for sizes Small - XLarge and $17.00 for sizes XXLarge - XXXLarge. All shirts are in adult sizes only... Sorry no youth sizing available. NOTE: all sizes will be a standard fit shirt.

Event Poster

We are going to have this year’s design made into a 12”x18” poster. The posters will be $15.00 and are printed on high quality archival paper printed via a digital press.

Metal Sign

The same art as the poster and t-shirt just on a 12x18 metal street sign sure would look good in the Man Cave or garage. These signs will be available in the store for $40. No framing required!


An entire weekend can sometimes be a lot of time to commit to something in this busy age we live in, and packing the whole family up for a weekend of camping can be a strain. So we would like to point out to our members that if you can only participate for the day, please register any way and just come in on Saturday. A little Rovering can go a long way. We know things are a little uncertain with the cost of fuel these days. That is why we think our very inexpensive, very close to home event would be the very best way to spend an almost October ;) weekend.
