Alt Names

Shenango River Lake

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Located on the western shores of Shenango River Lake, this small area has over 200 acres of ATV trails, a couple hill climbs and some mud holes to explore. Most of the trails are fairly easy making this a good place to bring a beginner.

Camping is not permitted within the OHV area but Shenango Campground is just a few miles away. The trails have a seasonal closure but usually are open for riding from Memorial Day weekend through the end of September.
