Wrangler Campground hosting 16th Annual Grand Jubilee Primitive Rodeo

Rodeo rider tries his luck at Wranglers Campground Grand Jubilee Primitive Rodeo

Experience the heart-pounding excitement of an old-fashioned rodeo at the 16th Annual Grand Jubilee and Primitive Rodeo July 20-21 at Wranglers Campground in Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area. Bring the family to enjoy rodeo events, children’s activities, and festival foods. Wranglers Campground is located 5 miles south of Golden Pond Visitor Center.

The Jubilee celebrates all the horse lovers and trail riders who have made Wranglers Campground so successful each year. Wranglers Campground offers half-price camping on that Friday and Saturday.

J-N Rodeo Company returns to Wranglers Campground with events beginning at 8pm both Friday and Saturday. Enjoy exciting rodeo activities such as saddle-bronc and bareback riding, steer wrestling, calf roping, barrel racing, break-away roping, and bull riding. “Primitive” refers to the informal atmosphere–so bring your own lawn chairs.  Rodeo admission is $8 ages 13 and up; $5 ages 12 and under.

“We invite people to come on out and have some fun at our Primitive Rodeo and Grand Jubilee. “Remember to bring the family and horses anytime to Wranglers for camping, horseback riding, and for guided trail riding at Rocking U Riding Stables,” said Randall Mitchell, Wranglers Campground Manager.
