Ride-on Jeeps are not just for kids—they’re for Bantam fans too! This new Saturday evening activity at Cooper’s Lake Campground is sure to add some hilarious excitement to Bantam!

Those who pre-register to bring ride-on Jeeps that meet all rules and requirements can race other riders down the hill in a slalom-style course. Multiple heats will enable participants to advance to the final race for cash prizes. The activity is free for all spectators to watch.


  • 1st place: $250

  • 2nd place: $150

  • 3rd place: $75

  • A Loser’s Dash for Cash race will give all previously disqualified participants one last shot at a $50 cash prize

There are several rules and requirements to participate. Please refer to our Rules and Waivers page for more details.
