Frank Raines OHV Park

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Alt Names

Frank Raines - Deer Creek OHV Park, Del Puerto Creek, Del Puerto Canyon, Stanislaus County

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (closed for fire season)

Open to all OHVs, this park has a variety of terrain that includes some rocky hill climbs, washouts, rocky creek beds and rutted 4x4 jeep trails.

In general the trails are pretty dry and crusty most times, and the surrounding vegetation is sparse with just the occasional shrub or patch of grass. Due to some water problems they have had in the past we suggest you bring your own water or a microfilter in case the water is unsafe.

Nearby Deer Creek Campground does offer direct trail access and has full RV hookups along with shower facilities.

One drawback is that there is not much here for pee-wees.  To the left of the painted circle is considered the 'pee-wee' area.
