SCARR 2021 Overview
SCARR is an organized, off-road event geared towards Land Rover
enthusiasts. It begins at Noon on Thursday, April 8th, and wraps up Sunday
the 11th. Our event attracts people from all parts of the country and globe
who love to experience the off-road capabilities of their Land Rovers in
the great outdoors. Each year, SCARR attendees forge lifelong memories with
friends, family, and sponsors. Join us this year as we celebrate the
17th Anniversary of SCARR!
This year's event will differ from years past as the club is not reserving
Barnwell Mountain. There will not be a registration fee, but we still ask
that all attendees register so that we can get a headcount. All registered
attendees will be given one raffle ticket for a raffle prize which will be
virtually hosted at the event on Saturday the 10th.
Activities abound at SCARR! Each year we host activities including guided
trail runs, lectures, off-road training, and more. There truly is
something for everyone at SCARR!
The event schedule and additional information will be provided at later date.
SCARR 2021 T-shirts can be purchased for $15 at the time of registration.
You must order and pre-pay for your shirt as additional shirts will not be
offered for sale at the event.

Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area
6284 State Highway 155 N Gilmer, TX 75645
From Gilmer, TX, turn east onto State Highway 155 North (this is a stoplight). Go approximately 5 miles; as you start to climb a hill, look for a green sign on the left that points to the right reading "Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area". Be sure to watch for the turnoff because it is at the crest of the hill. You will miss it if you are not paying attention. This sign is directly across the highway from the entrance. Turn right, check-in at the gate, and proceed up the hill to the office where you will finish the check-in process.
Camp Mabey is the main campsite for SCARR. Follow the signs back to the camp - it’s
about a 10-minute drive. Old Camp will be another established campsite
where the Fun Zone will reside for the week. There are several other areas
and campsites scattered around the park that attendees are welcome to take
advantage of. Whatever campsite you choose to use, please be respectful and
make sure to leave it cleaner than you found it. Due to the park being open
to the public, please be aware that there will be other guests enjoying the
campsites as well. The only campsites that Texas Rovers has reserved for
SCARR are Camp Mabey and Old Camp.
RV’s are welcome at SCARR. There are Premium Sites (water and electric) and additional (electric only) spots located across from the Premium Sites. A dump station is available for anyone to use at no charge. RV sites can be reserved on the Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area website at www.bmra.com
