Welcome!

More information coming soon about our huge 25th anniversary bash.  It was a blast and everyone had a great time.

Welcome to the Creeper Jeepers Gang website. The Creeper Jeepers Gang is a family oriented four-wheel-drive club with members in  Durango CO, Pagosa Springs CO, Farmington NM, and throughout the US.  We do all types of trails, ranging from easy trails passable with any stock 4×4 to extreme rock crawling. Creeper Jeepers is open to all makes and models of vehicles from bone stock to highly modified trail rigs. There’s something on our calendar for just about everyone! To get a little more information about us, like membership and vehicle requirements, go take a look at the About Us section.  You can also email us to learn about the club or upcoming trips in real-time.

Information on joining the club can be found HERE
