Other Names

Shenango River Lake

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Overlooking the western shores of Shenango River Lake, this small area has over 200 acres of ATV trails, a couple hill climbs and some mud holes to explore. Most of the trails are fairly easy making this a good place to bring a beginner.

The trails are only open for riding during daylight hours. Overnight parking is not permitted within the OHV area but Shenango Campground is just a few miles away. The trails are seasonally closed to motorized use from October 1 through Memorial Day weekend.
