Mounds ORV Area

Friday, October 28, 2016

Alt Names

The Mounds, Beaver Pond, Genesee County

Last Known StatusOpen

Open to all offroad vehicles, this area has something for all skill levels and ranges from twisty hare scramble trails, gravel and sandy play pits, rugged 4x4 trails and numerous mud holes. The park is only open during daylight hours but camping can be found a short distance away at Wolverine Campground.

Note that while the park is open year-round, there are a couple seasonal restrictions. Trucks are prohibited between the dates of March 15 through May 15, and ATVs and motorcycles are restricted to the 8-acre scramble area.

A Michigan ORV sticker is required on all machines which can be purchased onsite, online or at most nearby outdoor sporting shops.
