Moto Cove

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Alt Names

Cove Campground, Motocove, Cove Lake, Lake Leckszas, The Cove

Last Known StatusOpen

This family friendly offroad park offers about 38 miles of marked and rated one way trails that form four separate loops. The terrain is very rugged with lots of obstacles that range from steep hill climbs, loose chunk rock, boulders, deep mud puddles and some deep trenches. There is a small beginner loop that is about two miles long but the main trail system is really geared for experienced riders.

The property has a full service campground which offers spacious sites, RV hookups, swimming beach, boat ramp (electric motors only), cabins, picnic shelters and store that sells firewood, ice, night crawlers and sodas.

The property is open daily year-round but closes temporarily during hunting season. Call (540) 858-2882 for more information.
