I think Planet Extreme is pretty close to what you are talking about. It is in Mason Illinois. Casey has trails, and 2 MX tracks.
Southfork has MX track and trails. Go here www.megacross.com and click on Dist17 info then click on MX results 03. It will give you a list of track and you can go to their sites from there.

Splendora track has organized practice times when x-number of people show up.

Here is a brand new track close to me that is owned/operated by an x-outdoor nationals pro Chris Galloway.


Grindstone MX track

Theres a few OHV parks around here.

They mostly feature a lot of trails with very little true MX stuff. Some are maintained, some arent.

None of them have official camping grounds or anything. Only one even has a paved parking ramp. That's also the only one with real restroom facilities.

It would certainly be very cool if some around here could build something like that, but to have a really good riding area you need to have people maintain it, which is very time consuming. If you could somehow afford a staff to do that, it'd certainly be cool. But it'd be such an expensive endevor...

Parking area I mean, it's not a ramp.

Hope that is some sort of answer to your question....

Man, we have nothing like that around me at all.

I know yardpro said that he has "Practice tracks" around him where no races are held, just show up and practice. That is really a cool idea. Our local tracks (Red Bud, Log Road, etc) have open practice days and normally run about 4-5 classes durning the day.

The only thing close to a "park" if you will that we have is Red Bud, it has 2 tracks, but isn't anything like what you are talking about.

Actually I wouldn't mind doing something like that, if it was to work around my area though you would have to be AMA sanctioned as that is where everyone goes.

You're right about maintenance. the state park where we can ride is great but nothing like a maintained track.

sometimes the rocks, buried logs and ATV ruts take a toll on my bike

Have you found out how much they want?
I saw it for sale a while back and I didn't really pay attention, but then I drove by it on the way down to the dunes. It seems like a good set up for tracks, trails, etc. I would think we could probably get some city assistance also as I think it would do good things for that little town economically. I think it's on it's way to becoming a ghost town personally. I'll keep looking on a price for the land. Anway keep the ideas coming. I would think to have hookups, you would probably be paying about $18/night and $10/night without hookups and a $10 entry fee per person on the tracks, that way we could afford to keep them groomed. Does that sound reasonable??

Woody here in So Cal we have an ohv park called Gorman or Hungry Valley. It is all trails some sandy washes some mountain trails including single track. It also has an mx park in one corner of it which has a seperate entrance and they charge to go to the track. It is within the ohv area though. I haven't been the track part but I have been to the riding area. They have camp grounds near by and I think they have hook ups. The ohv park itself has little shade areas with benches but no hook ups. I too have been to Elsinore and liked the setup there with multiple tracks. I also know there is a place called Racetown I think in the victorville area my son tells me they have 5 tracks there also. I haven't been there so I don't know exactly what the layout is. But they do have a web site Racetown
