Oahe Downstream OHV Area

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Lake Sharpe, Fort Pierre OHV Park, Pierre ORV Park

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers 400 acres of hilly grassland terrain that is open to dirt bikes, ATVs and UTVs. While there are no designated trails the property boundaries are marked off. The park also has a motocross track that is maintained by the Central States Racing Association.

There is no fee charged to ride and while the area is open year-round, overnight parking is not permitted. Nearby Oahe Downstream Recreation area offers three campgrounds with modern amenities. There is no direct trail access from either campground so machines will need to be hauled to and from the OHV area.
