Richard Bong State Recreation Area

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Alt Names Bong State Recreation Area, Bong Rec Center
Last Known Status Temporarily Closed  (closed for spring thaw)

This popular state recreation are offers about seven miles of ATV trails which consist of several deep holes, sharp turns and flat sections. Terrain is a mix of scenic forest, rolling grasslands and wetlands. A trail pass is required which can be purchased at the park office, online or by calling (888) 936-7463.

Other activities include camping, fishing, swimming and a large open field for model aircraft. Snowmobiles are permitted during winter months. There is no direct trail access from the campgrounds so machines need to be hauled to and from the staging area.

Trail use is determined on a daily basis and updates are posted on the park hotline at (262) 878-5600 x 2. Trails are generally closed to OHV use around March through the end of April.
