Shady Oaks Native Prairie Adventure Trails

Sunday, May 09, 2021

Other Names

Coon Creek, Redwood River, Red Wood River

Last Known StatusOpen

This ATV park offers about six miles of beginner friendly woods trails that form numerous loops. All trails are marked and wind through a variety of oak, various hardwood and fruit trees, prairie grass and wildflowers. There are eight wooden bridge crossings that cross over a shallow creek. Other amenities include picnic tables and porta potties.

Visitors are encouraged to sign the guest book before riding. There is also no set fee to ride but since the park is partially funded by the state, the remainder is paid with donations which help with trail maintenance. Donation boxes are available at the main entrance.

The trails are seasonal and are open May through October, weather permitting. The trails may also close temporarily during wet weather conditions, so call first before heading out. The park is open during daylight hours, but camping can be found nearby. Please note that the trails are open to ATVs and UTVs only that are 65 inches or less in width.
