Are you ready to be part of a club that combines the excitement of Jeeping and off-roading with strong community commitment? For the growing base that makes up 570 Jeeps, the two go hand in hand. 570 Jeeps is a volunteer-run, non-profit Jeep club central to the 570 area code of Pennsylvania. You can check us out on our main Facebook Page to find the locations of our chapters in Scranton, Matamoras, Bloomsburg, or Wilkes Barre. We started in April of 2018 when our founding members realized there was no Jeep club in the area. Since then, 570 Jeeps has managed to build a good base of Jeep and off-roading members with a variety of skill levels. From the beginning, we have kept our eye on the community, and continue to do everything we can to offer our support to the people around us while still enjoying some of the most amazing rides this area has to offer.
Come for a Ride Today!
If this sounds like the kind of club you want to be a part of, there’s no better time than now to get in touch and join us on one of our rides. Anybody is welcome, regardless of experience level. Whether you’re completely new to the world of Jeeping and off-roading or you’ve got plenty of experience, everyone at 570 Jeeps is ready to welcome you.
You don’t even need to have a Jeep to join in on the fun! Despite our name, we’re open to all off-roading and motor enthusiasts. We even have members who simply want to be a part of our charity mission, even if they don’t ride often – or at all!
Of course, if you are new to Jeeping or off-roading, you can rest assured our members will be ready to help you out with the “do’s and don’ts” you need to know for a safe and fun experience. We’ll also split into different skill levels on some of the more challenging trails we ride.
And if you’re not already a member and just want to check us out, feel free to come on a ride. All of the events we post are available to non-members.
Activities and Off Road Adventures
If you’re ready to come out and join us, just check out our Facebook Page. Our members are always posting rides on our Facebook page, so don’t be surprised when you see multiple rides posted every week. New off-road adventures are alway available. We also host many different events throughout the year. Some of our most notable events are our annual Fall Foliage Ride and participating in the Christmas Bridge Festival and Tour for the Columbia County Covered Bridge Association. Both the Fall Foliage Ride and the Covered Bridge Tour consist of long stretches of non-maintained township roads.

Listen to Our Members
Ricky Thomas commented, “I love the community that 570 Jeeps has introduced me to. We do a lot for the community and I love being able to show my son that you can still have fun and help people. The loyalty, respect that we as jeepers have for one another and those with similar interest is second to none!”
Michael Funaro commented, “I can say what I like most is that I have never been involved with a finer group of people. When off roading if anyone has a problem, the group works as a team to solve any situation, so you never feel alone in any situation, you can always rely on the people with you. I can also say that I love that the group is not just an off roading group, but a group with a strong desire to help the community, such as toy and food drives as well as community clean up and more. I am proud to be a member.
