Badlands Off Road Park OHV Area

One of the many sandy play areas to explore.

Polaris RZR 800 UTV with winch on front bumper and roll cage carrying two passengers.

Most of the trails are marked and rated. This is a good view of the easy trails.

Two Polaris RZR 800 UTVs with orange whip flags parked next to shallow stream.

The park has some unique obstacles to check out. One section is simply called "The Tunnels", which are drainage tunnels wide enough for UTVs and jeeps to crawl through.

Three men standing next to two Yamaha Raptor ATVs and one Suzuki ATV with whip flags parked next to box trailer.

The main staging area has plenty of room for parking.
