Little Egypt OHV Area

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Crab Orchard Property

Last Known StatusOpen

This property was once an old strip mine, but thanks to the Little Egypt Off Road Club the area now offers about 50 miles of woods trails, hill climbs, mud pits and two motocross tracks on 900 acres.

The park is open during both regular and holiday weekends. Special events and races are occasionally held here. Amenities include a shaded picnic area, electric hookups and a dump station. Shower facilities are available but are closed during winter months.

The park may close on short notice during and after bad weather so call for current conditions before heading out.
