 ALL Vehicles must be out of parking lot as gates close at 30 minutes after closing time.

Bad Weather Hours:

We have started closing more often due to wet conditions.  It simply is been to damaging to the park.  Riding in the mud maybe "fun" but the park is going on 17 years now, and it's taking a toll.  We have to be diligent about this and will be in the future. We will post on the website and face book if we close due to weather. We also have started to refuse to allow atv's with swamp/mudder tires to ride here on wet / rainy days. If you have an ATV made for muddin, we have decided that it's not for us on days like that.

On ANY open day, if no one shows up to ride by noon, we may close for the rest of that day. (this usually happens in the winter or bad weather days). Phone calls to have the staff  "wait," will only happen if you show up on the time agreed upon, if not we will close. It doesn't hurt to call us at our home office number let us know also.  Sign up for our text blast if the weather turns bad we will send one out to keep you informed.

Stuck in the Mud?

If you are looking for deep mud, we don't offer that.  If you get stuck and we have to pull you out with our tractor or skid loader, first time is free.  Second time we have to pull you out it will cost you $25.00.  Third time we have to pull you out, we will escort you to the gate.  We don't promote this and usually these riders are stuck in areas they shouldn't be in. We rather not have the property tore up in this manner.  This mainly happens with big tire, 4x4 Atv's but this rule is for all riders not just them.


  • When the water truck or tractor on the track no one is allowed to ride on it at the same time

  • Atv's will not knock down trees to widen a single track trail.

  • No unlicensed vehicles signed in at our park are allowed off property on Public Roadways.

  • ALL Machines MUST have a working silencer (keep that packing fresh!). Quiet is fast & cool!  We have a db meter!

  • We expect that riders keep their machines equipped with STOCK or quieter exhaust!

  • We will let you know if the machine is to loud.

  • NO alcohol is allowed of course. (if we catch you with it, you be leaving immediately).

  • NO TENNIS SHOES  You must have leather above the ankle  BOOTS! to ride.

  • Riders: We require helmet, goggles (eye protection), boots, long pants. We highly recommend that all riders wear  Complete safety gear. 

  • We have had issues with riders spinning gravel and or not being courteous in the parking lot. Issues like these may force us to send you home. If we do that you will not be riding at our park the rest of the year or longer.

 ATV Minor riders will have to meet this criteria:

With rider in normal riding position with hands on handlebars, there must be a bend in the elbows, fingers must reach all control levers. When standing on the foot rest or floor boards, there must be a minimum 3 clearance between seat and inseam.

 Riders not meeting this criteria will not be allowed to ride.

 In others words NO KIDS ON BIG MACHINES! this is strictly enforced both ATV's AND Motorcycles!

  •  Currently we have 10-12 miles of  trails. All trails are multi-directional, and un-marked. And we have a SX  Style track. With a watering system. We also have a "kids" only track and area to ride. We also have an enclosed fence area for the first time riders to ride.

  •  We  will water and groom as needed.

  • Trails are for Trail Riding and NOT Practice for HS or Enduro Racing, In short, we expect trail riders to be respectful of each other and to ride as visibility & the trails  allows. ALL pit or parking areas are to ridden in a slow and courteous manner. The fenced area (next to the Parking area) is for the little guys to ride on!

  •  4-Wheel ATV's are recommended to have "nerf" bars and tether kill switch.
