I was wondering if there is anyone from around the Ft Campbell, Ky area. I am looking to go offroading when I return from Afghanistan and would like to meet some people from the area to go with.

I'm in Frankfort and I live in Richmond during the week. I'm not sure where Fort Campbell is though.

You might want to go here and check out the southeast region it has Ft Campbell.

There are lots of current, and former Military people in the Ft. Campbell area on www dot itsajeep dot org (minus spaces). Some of our people are in the sandbox currently, or have been there & back several times.

Dirty Turtle Offroad - Bedford, Kentucky

I'm in Louisville. Closest place to legally wheel is Dirty Turtle Off Road Park in Trimble County (about 50 miles from Louisville). Dirty Turtle Offroad - Bedford, Kentucky


The next closest place would be Interlake in Southern Indiana, approximately 113 miles from Louisville. Interlake is controlled by DNR so you will want to make sure you know and follow the rules, or it could be a very very expensive day for you. DNR: Interlake Property

Slade / Natural Bridge is approximately 122 miles from Louisville and is a place that you should wheel at **ONLY** if you have a trail guide who knows where to take you and more importantly, where not to go. Public trails cross private property with little or no warning. If you end up on the wrong side of a property line by accident, it could prove to be a $$ nightmare $$. Natural Bridge is a State Park with very limited public property for off roading Kentucky State Parks - Home

Wishbone is in Bowling Green, KY. I have only been there once, so I will simply refer you to their Web site; New Page 0

Turkey Bay Off Road Park is 204 miles from Louisville and is located in the Land Betweeen the Lakes (LBL) National Recreational Area. LBL | OHV Riding & Camping
Turkey Bay is a place that without a guide who knows where the "Fun stuff" is, you could spend a weekend there and never see the good stuff.

Harlan is by far the largest and probably the best know off road area. Harlan is approximately 230 miles from Louisville. Harlan County, Kentucky - Official Web Site - Black Mountain Off-Road Adventure Area

There is also the Badlands in Indiana. I have been here only a few times. Their Web site is: http://www.badlandsoffroad.com/

Redbird is a place that I have been only once; http://redbirdsra.com/

Haspin Acreas is a place that I have been only once, left early, and have no desire to ever return. If you like lots of ATV's, motorcycles, drunks every where and mud, mud, and more mud, you will like Haspin Acres. Otherwise, don't waste your time or gas. http://haspinacres.com/

If you want to do some web wheelin', join us at KentuckyKrawlers.org

Most of our wheeling is at Slade, Livingston, Jellico and Windrock. All of these are hellandgone from Ft. Campbell, however. Your best bet for a club that would be close to local would be in Tennessee.

Thanks for your service.

Jellico is private. Open rides are occasionally available. Information is available at Rocky Top OHV Park Home

Livingston is still there.

Livingston may still be there, but I understand the trails have been bulldozed.

livingston is exit 49 off 75, some call it 909. and i too heard it was closed to all. last time i stopped by the road to pink rock was bulldozed and graveled.

there are more places in KY to wheel.

Bills 491 offroad in demosseville, KY about 45. min south of cincy, OH

hillz n hollarz just south of Louisville, was public but is now a private park you can wheel by invite only

big rock atv and offroad park in maysville, KY decent sized must be insured (leaves most trailer queens out)

there are more i can't recal at the moment however.
