Appalachia Bay ORV Area

Saturday, September 06, 2014
Alt Names Motorcycle Island, Motorcycle Peninsula, Keystone Lake
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

Known to many as "Motorcycle Island", this area is actually a peninsula with a small strip of land that connects to the island which can overflow if the water level goes over 75’, creating an actual island that is separated from the mainland.

Camping is not permitted at the staging areas or on the island but there is a newly installed campground that provides direct trail access. The terrain consists of open beaches, briar bushes and miles of sand and woods trails.
