Where are the ATV campgrounds / parks?

I Have seen several people post pics of them camping (not sure if it was campground or boondocking) and they brought their jeeps and/or ATVs. I was wondering where some of the places are. I would really like to find a campground that has a large area to 4wheel and allows you to drive them to and from your RV. I have never boondocked, but would consider it. Are there any on the East coast? Thanks in advance

There is one in the Ocala forest in Florida. Pretty nice campground with some great riding trails.

We recently stayed at River Island State Park near Parker, AZ. They allow ATVs and there are abundant 4WD trails across the highway from the park. They advertise on their website as having OHV trail access. I highly recommend this park and this area. This is not the case for all AZ state parks. We stayed at Dead Horse Ranch and they do not allow ATVs within the park.

If you come to Michigan and want to take the Jeep to sand dunes you will be near the city of Mears. The dunes are at Silver Lake State Park. We stay at Silver Creek RV park but there are at least a half dosen RV parks near the dunes. We drive to the dunes and air down the tires (7-10#) in the huge parking lot at the dunes. There is a store outside the park that has a couple air pumps to re-inflate your tires after you leave the dunes. During the peak of summer on weekends it does get crowded. We also have a lot of Jeep trails in our state and national forests. There are also some dedicated Jeep parks (The Mounds in Flint). In a true Michigan winter any road can be considered a "Jeep" road just after a good snowfall

We stay at Deadhorse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood and while I use my 4x4, there's always ATV's there. Didn't know they weren't allowed?

Live and learn we say!

The only place we've boondocked & ATV'd from the RV was Quartzsite AZ on BLM land, but we've stayed at many RV parks that allow you to drive your ATV directly from the park to the trails...

Richfield Utah - KOA
Camp Verde AZ - Distant Drums RV Resort
West Virginia - Ashland Resort
So Carolina - Carolina Adventure World
Custer SD - Broken Arrow Campground
Island Park, ID - Red Rock RV Park
Winchester Bay OR - Salmon Harbor Marina

Thank for all the info.... I have some research to do..... . I couldn't believe the pics from Michigan ..... I didn't know that they had places like that there.

Lightning83: That sounds pretty cool that you can ride your ATV into the town.

Is there one place that is known to be the best place to go? Just wondering...... Thanks

You can't miss central Utah. Piute trails and BLM grounds. Campgrounds in Richfield, Marysvale, etc. Once you experience this, everything will pale by comparison. W would park the rig in the CG and primitive camp in the mountains for several days when we were young and didn't mind sleeping on the ground . When we get back well likely stay in the rig. . The towns are very ATV friendly, just follow the rules. They love tourists.

I was just going to start a thread with this same question. Hubby and I are looking for a place to go with our MH and our RZR this winter or possibly even early spring. Want warm weather for sure. Would love to be able to drive the RZR out of the park but we can trailer it behind the Jeep also. We love Moab but not sure it will be warm enough; even by mid-March. Keep the ideas coming!!!
