Default Need opinions on OHV parks, tracks, etc.

     

I was talking to a buddy who just moved to Texas and he was telling me that they have organized practices there at the local tracks. We just show up and ride with whoever is there, but there are usually no more than 20 bikes or so there at one time, so there probably is no need to organize the practices, but I was just curious. Do they usually have separate ATV, kids, supercross tracks??

Also wondering if anybody has anywhere that they know of that is an OHV park. I know there is a big one in Cali, but can't remember the name? What do you think of the idea of campgrounds, tracks and trails all at one place? Do any have bed and breakfasts or anything like that there too? My brain has just been thinking and I'm curious what is out there and what people like. Help me out here.

Also if you could give me the ideal situation too.

I'll go first on the ideal situation. I think campgrounds with grass, trailer hook ups, showers, volleyball courts, etc. would be fun for families as well as possibly a B&B for those who don't like to camp.
As far as riding areas. Two or three different tracks to choose from so you don't get bored if you're camping for a couple of days and a couple hundred acres of trails. If the dunes weren't too far away (within an hour) that would be cool too, so you could shoot out to the dunes if you wanted to for a day.

I'm looking for a little more detailed info than that, but I'm glad you like your local tracks. I'm actually doing a project and the input is much needed.

our local tracks suck, since they were made by bikes just riding in circut until a track was formed and the only last as long as it takes the council to find it and declare it national park

St. Joe State Park, Missouri near st. louis. Riding, trails, sands, camping, swimming area and beach and a horse and bicycle area on other side of park. No moto track yet .$3 a day.

Illinois just rejected a bill to allocate land to ATV parks because we "destroy habitats"???? Not sure how that will go

R.I.P. Thurston County ORV

Ranger_426F saved me much work, Thanks bro.
Spilt milk; Thurston County ORV had an MX, a good flat track, a hill climb and Capitol forrest trails. Camping with shower too. Ted Devol did a great job on the track. The green sweatered ciche eaters closed it down for us, though.

Woody...

I have only been to one track down here so far, but as Woody_CRF probably told you:

1. It has 5 tracks
2. Pro, Vet, 50s, 80s, and a "nothing" track/riding area
3. Open practices all day

We have lots of designated OHV areas in CA, but none that I am aware of that include an MX track. Of course Ocotillo Wells, Glamis, Dumont Dunes, EL Mirage offer LOTS of riding, but the best ammenities would be toilets and showers. No grass or BBQs, etc.

Lake Elsinore also has an ATV track, but it was closed the day we were there.

Ok here I go.

First off, I have never been to anything quite like Lake Elsinore and I really liked the setup there. I hear there are better tracks, but that was the best I've riden thus far.

I like the idea of a camping area with hookups, running water, and a bathroom or 2. The option to ride for the day, or to spend some time there.

Tracks: I really like the multiple track idea. If you are doing it in Utah though, I'm not sure there is the need for them. Lake Elsinore was really busy and we were there on a wednesday afternoon. So I would say, 2 mx tracks, a beginner to novice track, and a intermediate to pro track. then 1 ATV track, and a kids track. Then some trails if you have that much land.

Thats all I can think of now... Oh and of course to hire me to groom and turn on the water for the tracks.

I think Glen Helen is the one I was thinking of. Woody_CRF, there is 600 acres for sale by Eureka and I'm sure it's cheap (if there's such thing), so I was just dreaming ideas of what we could do with about 200 acres of that. It's by a little town so there's shopping and stuff and it's only about 30 minutes from the dunes if you wanted to take a day to go to the dunes, but the dunes have no hookups or amenities besides toilets.

I think we could start a nice little town of our own with that much.

Have you found out how much they want?
