Just getting ready to retire and we want to start doing more traveling and exploring with the ATV's.
I know there are some out there that do this also so just thought you might have some destinations you've gone to and would suggest.

thanks

We don't travel with ATVs, so try to steer clear of those areas.

However, we've noticed that there is a huge ATV area on the Oregon Coast near Winchester Bay...probably many other areas up and down the coast, too.

There are also ATV areas at Algodones Dunes near Imperial, CA and at Sand Mountain off of US-50 east of Fallon, NV. I know I've seen other areas, too, both these 3 come to mind right away.

ON EDIT: Another one I just thought of is on US-20 west of Brothers, OR.

Gary,

With three boys we set many destinations around mud and engine power.

Our favorite is Land Between the Lakes in western Kentucky. We have also gone out to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area near Coos Bay, OR. There is also the Hatfield-McCoy Rereation Area in West Virginia.

Another great spot is Moab, UT. We have ATV'd on BLM land right across from Arches National Park.

As always, be safe and be responsible, but HAVE FUN!

Are you looking for sport quad opportunities, or utility 4x4 kind of stuff?

There are some good riding areas in Oregon. I enjoy the Moro county ATV park, which has a nice campground. No hookups $10, power/water $15.

By Bend is the East Fort Rock and Millican riding areas. Dusty in late season. Camp in between the trees in various areas.

There is the Tillamook burn area, which has some super technical, scary steep stuff. I usually hit the free, no hookups camping area, but there are pay campgrounds w/designated spots.

The GF's parents winter near Umah AZ(Actually Welton), and there is some great riding down there.

There is a military training ground that you have to get permission ahead of time to ride in. They brought back picutes of rocky terrain, with like steel mockups of jets, or a tracked flack gun parked out there, with practice bombs here and there.

Next week we are going to fly down there to visit them.


Are you going to run a toyhauler, motorhome and trailer, or truck rack and tow trailer?

Arizona just instituted a $25/year permit requirement for all ORVs. Come on over and help pay for our Govs $1.6 Billion deficit.

Diamond Lake, Oregon. All year round, then of course there's the huge number of sand trails out on the southern Oregon coast from Florence on south.

GaryM, It will be difficult for you way back in Florida, but for ATV riding you can't beat the Federal lands administered by the Bureau of Land Mgmt.(BLM) out west. We live on the Ariz/Utah border and I can drive my ATV out my driveway and run it out of gas without ever touching a paved road. There are unlimited places to go in the 4 Corners area. Some restrictions are being implemented because of disrespect for the resources, but if you stay on established roads and trails you can wear yourself (and the machine) out having fun. We put almost 5000 miles each on 2 Polaris 500's last year.
