Kaw Lake ORV Area

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Sarge Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Located on the eastern shores of Kaw Lake, this 200 acre offroad area is open to daily to ATVs and dirt bikes. There are roughly ten miles of trails that range from narrow and rocky woods sections to sandy beach trails.

About half of the riding area is surrounded by the lake and you can ride on the shoreline. There is no fee to ride and amenities include potable water and vault toilets. The terrain is mostly dry and dust free during the summer months but can get fairly wet during the spring.

The trails are open for day use only and while overnight parking is not permitted, Sarge Creek Cove Campground is located across the street (machines must be hauled to and from the staging area as there is no direct trail access).
