Welcome to the Flint Hills Jeep Club website! We are a family-oriented offroad club centered in the Flint Hills of northeast Kansas. We have monthly meetings that usually include wheeling afterwards. Most meetings are in Randolph, KS near Tuttle Creek ORV Park, however there are also meetings at Kansas Rocks Recreation Park in Mapleton, KS and occasionally near Lawrence. KS. We are dedicated to safe offroading and adhering to Tread Lightly principles. We welcome those new to the sport and look after each other out on the trail. We do challenge ourselves, however, so trail damage is not uncommon.
If you’re interested in becoming a member, visit our Events page and plan to attend a meeting to see what you think, or go ahead and visit the Membership Info page and fill out/submit the registration.
The Flint Hills Jeep Club started in 1994 under the name Flatlanders Jeep Club. During the early years the club met monthly at the old Briggs Jeep dealership on the east side of Manhattan. Initially, club activities were limited to short meetings followed by a day of wheeling with only a Father’s Day cookout and assistance with the Briggs Jeep Jamboree as scheduled annual events. The club grew and added activities and eventually voted on a name change to Flint Hills Jeep Club in 2008. Today the club has almost 100 families as members and is involved in multiple events and activities that provide recreation and fellowship for its members and further the sport of off-roading. While the monthly meeting and wheeling are still our core activities, we have added out-of-state trips, an annual Christmas party, trail guide assistance for local jeep events and charitable donations to our list of activities. Trip destinations have included Southern Missouri Offroad Ranch (MO), Superlift ORV Park (AR), Disney (OK), Ouray (CO), Buena Vista (CO) and Moab (UT). In 2018 the club will be traveling out to do the famous Rubicon Trail in California. In order to further our interest in maintaining access to quality off-road destinations the club participates in Adopt-a-Trail and cleanup days at Kansas Rocks Park as well as Tuttle Creek ORV Park. We are also members and advocates of the Tread Lightly program. Charitable activities include soliciting food donations for northeast Kansas food pantries and our highly successful Toys for Tots drive during our Christmas party. The club also makes monetary donations consistent with our mission. In the years since the name change we have improved the club’s monthly newsletter and have added a website, a public Facebook page and members only Facebook chat page. At this time we are the largest Jeep-only club in the area and strive to be a premier organization. Many of our events are attended by entire families , therefore, no drugs or alcohol are allowed on the trails. Our club is run by its members and the officers are there to help add a little organization. Be sure and check out our outstanding Club Partners that help support us in various ways, and in turn please help support their businesses when possible.
