Appalachia Bay ORV Area

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Alt Names

Motorcycle Island, Motorcycle Peninsula, Keystone Lake

Last Known StatusOpen

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 recently installed campground that provides direct trail access. The terrain consists of open beaches, briar bushes and miles of sand and woods trails.
