Anyone ran Interlake (southern Indiana) this year?

Was just wondering if anyone had run Interlake this year? Was wondering where they set up a place to pay, hours of operation, etc. Last year it was free but I thought they were charging now. Just looking for some scoop.

Hey bro...we just went this year and there's no charge, hell there's nothing there but a sign and a gate or 2. Also the trails are not marked well, some are marked some aren't.

Interlake Property FAQs What and where is Interlake?
Interlake has other local names including Lynnville, Spurgeon, Winslow, and "that other DNR motorized property". The property is located on the Warrick/Pike County line north of I-64 and adjacent on the west to the Sugar Ridge Fish and Wildlife Area near the town of Spurgeon. The main entrance is on State Road 68 approximately 2.5 miles east of Lynnville.

How Do I get there?

From Evansville or Terre Haute
Take HWY41 to Interstate I-64 Exit 25
Turn right(north) on to State Road 61
To the first 4-way stop (Intersection of State Road 61 & 68)
Turn right(east) on to State Road 68
Travel approximately 3.2 miles east. The entrance is on the north side of the road. If you past the area on the north side of road that is a large equipment training area you just went by the entrance to Interlake. It is currently marked with a green reclamation project sign and Interlake rule signs on both sides of the entrance.

From Louisville, KY
Go West on I-64 to Lynnville Exit 39
Turn right(north) on to State Road 61
To the first 4-way stop (Intersection of State Road 61 & 68)
Turn right(east) on to State Road 68
Travel approximately 3.2 miles east. The entrance is on the north side of the road. If you past the area on the north side of road that is a large equipment training area you just went by the entrance to Interlake. It is currently marked with a green reclamation project sign and Interlake rule signs on both sides of the entrance.

The GPS coordinates of the Marion parking site is 38.2393394, -87.233806.
The GPS coordinates of the South roadside parking area is 38.219417, -87.209969.


What about hunting and fishing?
Hunting and fishing are allowed at Interlake. See Fish and Wildlife information if you have questions.
Effective November 15 thru November 30, 2008 No off-road vehicle riding is allowed from sunrise to 10AM EST and No deer firearms hunting is allowed from 10AM to Sunset EST. Authorized by 312-IAC 8-2-1.

What is next? Isn’t DNR working on a Master Plan?
Yes, DNR is working on a Master Plan and we hope to have it completed by December 2008. For more information, please see our Master Plan webpage.

How can I participate in the Master Plan?
You can attend the public meetings. Check back here for future meeting dates.

What has DNR done with the property so far?
Many people have asked to see what work we have done to Interlake. See our progress page for updates as we move along.
Please be patient as we create/update this page.

What can I do to help?
The DNR cannot do this alone. MANY people came forward and volunteered to help get the property ready for public use. Tons of trash has been hauled away, trails marked, and brush cleared. The local community has been very supportive of the property use. Interlake still needs volunteers now that it will see public use.
Another thing you can do is register your ATV with the DNR. That money goes directly into State OHV sites. Much of that money has been used at Interlake. Registration Information

I read somewhere that the dirt/mud has contaminants in it that will make your Jeep rust quicker. Maybe something from the old coal mines??

Anyone know anything about this?

Went down there today. No charge to enter. Man things have changed quite a bit in the last few months. A lot of deep ruts in the easy trails. Still plenty to do for the stockers though.

Ok, I kinda failed on the pics. I didn't have a card in my camera. I did however take a picture of the prairie area with my phone to show you the width of the trails.



Here are some older pics I took a couple of months ago.





And here is an old map of the trails I have posted before. I did get a new map today but it is not scanned in so this will have to do.

I went wheeling there for my first time in March and had a BLAST. the trails are not really mark liked stated before but i still had a good time. I didn't do anything to gnarly just pu@#y footed around but it was my first time so. There looked to be a variety of difficulty of trails.
