Is Haspin acres a good place for stockers?

I have not been to haspin acres but I have heard both ways on it. Is it a decent place for a stock rig, does it have plenty of trails or will we just get bored with the same 3 trails like I have heard? I want to head up there since its the closest to me but don't want to wasted a day to find it to just be for "big rigs". Any help would be grate. Post pics and vids if you got'em. or ???

Do you like drunk rednecks and mud? If you do you will love Haspin.

Take this for gospel.

It's a fun place, but not much for crawling. Just mud, and few climbs and more mud.

Hit up the Badlands and you'll be MUCH happier.

Bunch of us going on April 9th! See ya out there!

When I rode fourwheelers there was a really technical section full of rocks. But climbs,mud, and drunkness. I dont want to go there again because I would rather not get hit by some drunk guy offroad. and its not enough to risk my rig drinking. And plus, I'm not 21 yet.

I've heard the drunks are terrible out there. I don't mind a little drinking and wheeling but when you get a whole bunch of people with rigs, quads, buggies and everything else thats just asking for something bad to happen. I think Ill drive a little further and go to Badlands

Ive never seen any one smashed operating a rig out of the 6 times ive been there. It does have some good trails and climbs, they have a really fun creek bead to go thru, and ofcorse the devils back bone.There is a good bit of mud to, which i hate lol. Theres tons of stock rigs there. Its the closest to me thats why i go and i like to drink after a good day of wheelin.

I don't mind the people that drink after wheeling. It is the ones that do it while wheeling that bother me.

I don't mind the mud so much. I really don't care for rock,(don't have armor yet) but I really like some good hills and just plane ol' trail rides with a little of everything. I am really wanting to go to the thing on the 9th but I doubt I can get up there. I may try to get out for something at Interlake, I know it has plenty of good trails. I'm not "stock" but all I have is a 4" rancho lift and 32's. No lockers, armor,or winch. I really am just stock with a lot more clearance. lol

Drunks are a part of life at haspin. Dont leave your rig if you break down either. Ive talked to alot of people that got stuck or broke down and left to get help only to return to stripped rigs.Mud, less and less all the time. In my opinion it is becoming the domain of the atv and dirtbike down there. There are a alot of trails that are fine for a stocker, but they can quickly become too much and you have to turn around. my advice is to go on a weekday and check their website and make sure your not going down there when their is an atv event scheduled. Oh and stay away on holiday weekends or risk running over a 10 year old ridin his lil honda w/o adult supervision. i rolled once down there dodging a Dumb**(* kid darting out in front of me on his lil honda.

Yeah, sorry I didn't put the state in. It just never crossed my mind. LOL I will try to remember that when I post anything.

If anyone feels like it we could try Interlake in southern IN sometime. I don't really know bout the parks around here. I have always gone to small private lands but they have all stopped letting people come out because of all the "big rigs" destroying any trails they have. I really wanna get back out though. I finally got a trail worthy jeep again so I am stoked about getting some trail under it.

P.S. Not big on DRUNKS but will drink a couple after a good day on the trails if anyone is game...
