Redbird State Riding Area

Thursday, July 17, 2014
Alt Names Black Creek, Red Bird SRA, Redbird Coal Mine
Last Known Status Open

This one has about 1200 acres of difficult 4x4 and ATV trails consisting of steep inclines, rocky sections, deep ruts and some pretty messy mud bogs. The trails are marked and rated for difficulty and are heavily patrolled. During wet weather the trails get very muddy.

The park is open year-round but has seasonal hours and may close temporarily during inclement weather so be sure to call before you haul. Annual permits are available for around $175.00. Camping is not permitted except during special events but nearby Skakamak State Park offers RV hookups and two boat ramps.

Another option would be Camp Refuge which is located next to the OHV area and offers cabin rentals.
