Special thanks to Blk Elk Media for this short video of our 2020 event! This video does a great job of showing the family friendly spirit of this event!

If you own a 4x4 vehicle and enjoy the overlanding lifestyle or you just want to learn more about this fast growing passion you are invited to join Natural State Overland at Byrd's Adventure Camp, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Arkansas October 14-16 2021, where you will rendezvous with others who share your interest in overland style travel and all the adventure it brings! If you haven't experienced the trails and backroads of the Ozarks, you don't want to miss this opportunity, and if you have this is your chance to get back out there.

Come share your experiences, knowledge, and enthusiasm while you learn from others and talk to vendors about their overland related products and participate in our vendor sponsored door-prize giveaways, all in a family friendly atmosphere! We are also planning various presentations on overland related topics, and trip reports, as well as ample opportunity to get out and explore the beautiful Ozark National Forest. Those attending the Rendezvous will also have the opportunity to watch single engine aircraft arrive and depart from Byrd's grass airstrip!

Join our Natural State Overland Facebook group and Like our Rendezvous in the Ozarks Page to keep up to date with all the information about this event and submit your ideas and suggestions as we make this event one you will want to return to year after year!

Last year we had over 600 vehicles and 950+ people attend from 24 states! We had 35 vendor booths, and over 20 different product demos, trip reports, and presentations to choose from! This year we are planning for an even bigger crowd and hope to double the number of vendors present. We will also have a free event app for those attending!
