Alt Names

Wabash River

Last Known StatusOpen

This off road park has about 800+ acres of various terrain such as sand dunes, deep water crossings, gravel hills, mud bogs, woods trails and rock crawling sections for jeeps and trials bikes.

The park is open daily from 9am-5pm and is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Camping is not permitted but cabin and cottage rentals are available. Off the Trail Vacation Rentals and Campground is located near the main entrance which offers a spray wash, hot showers and full hookups. Guests are allowed to ride to and from the park from the campground.

Flags are not required for motorcycles but are mandatory for ATVs, Jeeps and 4x4s which can be purchased at the park office for an additional fee. Helmets are required for all dirt bike, ATV and UTV riders and are available for rent. There is also an onsite repair shop that carries parts and accessories for most off road vehicles.

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. Photo Submitted 2/9/2013 (Looks like fun! Thank you.)
