Cooper Creek ATV Area

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

Alt Names

Deepwater, Cooper Creek ORV, Deep Water, Harry S Truman Reservoir

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the western shores of the Harry S. Truman Reservoir, this area has about 400 acres of trails, rolling hills and scattered mud pits to enjoy. The trails wind through a scenic mixed hardwood forest and offers some nice views of the reservoir.

The area is open daily, year-round. During wet weather conditions the trails can get very muddy (even after a little rain) and can take anywhere from a few days or longer to dry out. For current conditions check the with Army Corps of Engineers before heading out.

There is no fee charged to ride but the trails are only open during daylight hours. Overnight parking is not permitted but camping can be found just a few miles north at Sparrowfoot Campground, which has electric hookups, restrooms with hot showers, laundry facilities and a boat ramp.

Please note that the trails are only open to dirt bikes and ATVs that are 50 inches or less in width. Side by sides, trucks and Jeeps are not permitted.
