Richard Bong State Recreation Area

Tuesday, August 03, 2021

Other Names

Bong State Recreation Area, Bong Rec Center

Last Known StatusOpen

This popular state recreation are offers about seven miles of ATV trails which consist of several deep holes, sharp turns and flat sections. Terrain is a mix of scenic forest, rolling grasslands and wetlands. A trail pass is required which can be purchased at the park office or online.

Other activities include camping, fishing, swimming and a large open field for model aircraft. Snowmobiles are permitted during winter months. There is no direct trail access from the campgrounds so machines need to be hauled to and from the staging area.

Trail use is determined on a daily basis and updates are posted on the park hotline. Trails are generally closed to motorized use around March through the end of April for spring thaw.
