NORA-USA Take Action Alert for IOWA
Pearse Umlauf with NORA-USA wants to help see Iowa get a OHV park that is open to full size vehicles. He hopes this will help get the ball rolling but it will be up to us to keep it rolling by contacting the governors office. Click on the TAKE ACTION button to help get as many requests as possible and spread the word.

Done. Thanks for the link.

My understanding regarding 600 Acres here by CR was that the DNR didn't like the liability of motorcycle/ATVs mixing with full size vehicles. In the few years that I was out there, I never heard of any issues or conflicts. 600 Acres was nothing terribly special, but had a few challenging spots that were kind of fun. I have a feeling that lobbying groups ($) had an impact on the decision to shut it down to Jeeps. The official word had something to do with the registration dollars from quads and motorcycles to help with maintenance (?).

I would really like to have some public land in the state open to full-size offroading, even if it's not convenient to me. It would be a step in the right direction. I'd even be willing to pay some sort of annual user fee if that's what it took, as would a lot of other people.

While I am thinking about it, I wonder how much the state pays to maintain the level "B" roads torn up by people wanting to play with their Jeep/fullsize vehicle after a good rain/snowmelt. I have heard the farmers are not too fond of the deep ruts in these roads they use to get to their fields.

It would be really nice to see the state make some kind of attempt to give us somewhere legal to wheel.. ;)

signed....I also just sent a tasteful e-mail to the DNR Man I have been trying for years ti get that OHV full size passed

I did find this...its a Quarry By oksaloosa. IDK if the DNR has their fingers in it, you have to look at the finsh point in the satellite image to see what it is
