Tuttle Creek ORV Area

Friday, December 02, 2016

Alt Names

Tuttle Creek Lake, Randolph ORV Area

Last Known StatusOpen

This off-road area offers a wide variety of terrain that consists of steep and chunky hill climbs, stepped rock climbs, rocky sections with sharp turns, deep ruts, scattered mud puddles, creek crossings and miles of short and long 4x4 trails. A rock garden can also be found near the the main staging area which is rated as double black diamond.

All vehicle types are permitted but this area is best explored in a 4x4 or Jeep. Dirt bike and ATV riders may want to check out nearby Spillway Cycle Area, which has more narrow ATV and single track trails.

Park amenities are limited but restrooms and a loading ramp can be found near the main entrance. There is no shade or water so come prepared.

There is no fee charged for riding but the area is only open during daylight hours. Camping is prohibited but there are several campgrounds located just a few minutes away.
