Lake Murray State Park

Monday, March 29, 2021

Other Names

Lake Murray, Pear Orchard ATV Area, Pear Orchard Motorcycle Area

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking a popular lake with numerous boating and camping opportunities, this ATV park has about 10 miles of marked trails that wind through rolling hills, grasslands and some forests plus a few scattered play areas. The terrain is mostly hard packed dirt with a few sandy sections.

The park has a large day use area with plenty of parking for large trailers and a campground with both RV and primitive sites, each with concrete pads, picnic tables and BBQ grills. Visitors can now go to www.gocampok.com to make a reservation for an RV site at the ATV riding area. Not all sites are reservable, half of the campground is still first come, first serve.

Visitors should note that the park does not offer ATV rentals and all riders must bring their own machines. As of this writing there are currently no ATV rental agencies in the area.
