Catfish ATV Trails & Pond

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

formerly Outdoorsman Park, Catfish Pond, Cat fish Pond, Henry County

Last Known StatusOpen

Locally known as "Catfish Pond", this offroad park has roughly 60+ miles of trails that form long loops. The terrain is mostly rugged and muddy ATV trails that wind through a wooded forest with rolling hills and scattered mud pits.

Recent improvements include the addition of trail markers to the main trail, which connects to numerous side trails. Camping is permitted but is primitive. The park also has a stocked pond for occasional tournaments and catch and release fishing for a small fee.

The park is open during most weekends but hours are seasonal so call first before heading out.
