Mounds ORV Park

Anyone been there? Are there areas that I can go through with my stock 04 wrangler? I'm pretty new to the off roading other than taking it down two tracks and orv routes up north. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

You can get around to a lot of areas with a stock jeep. There aren't that many places you can not go, just watch the large ruts so you don't get hung up on your skid plate. You will need an ORV sticker and buy a pass for $11 if you are not a resident of Genessee County.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FRONT REAR RECOVERY POINTS AND A GOOD TOW STRAP.

Other than that, yeah your set to go. Be careful in the water though.

Ok cool. I have tow hooks front and rear as well as a recovery strap. My friend is also going with his JK incase one of us gets stuck. Any particular areas to watchout for.

I'm not going but our club is trying to plan a trip this month.

Definitely bring a friend with another vehicle and make sure you have recovery points and a tow strap. I've had some friends go in their stock rigs and not have any problems. Just stay away from the ruts and the really deep holes. There are also many holes out there that will swallow a stock rig.

This hole didn't look very deep but my buddy got his Scout II very stuck. We broke several straps before we gave up and left it overnight. It took a very large rig on tractor tires 12 yanks to get him out.



As far as places to look out for, stay out of the holes along the power lines and stay out of the large mudholes in the scramble area.

I always find a stick and check the water holes if I am unsure of how deep they are and to see how loose the bottom of the hole is. I made it through alot of the mounds in my stock 91 yj 4cyl. I never been out there in the winter.

The winch is hydraulic and runs of the PS pump. The engine wouldn't run well because of fuel starvation and his PS pump was giving him problems after he got it running.

I stoped by when you were trying to get it out. The fan was kicking water up into the intake right?

It's fun during the winter but you have to watch out driving on the ice.
If the ice isn't thick enough and you break through into the wrong mudhole you could be stuck real good.

Yup, I can tell you have been to the Mounds.

The low side of the powerlines have very deep holes with mud that doesn't like to let go.
And that one little puddle in the first scramble area, I've seen it swallow some pretty big trucks. Very deceiving, it just looks like some water in a low spot?

I live 2 miles from the Mounds and am out there almost every Sunday.
It has something for all size vehicles and lots of good people playing in the mud that aren't afraid to give you a hand if you run into trouble.
