offroad park

About how many acres would be needed to make an offroad park? Does anyone know?

I am looking at some "mountain" land. I would have to check permitting before thinking about it though as it is adjacent to BLM land.

Does anyone one here know any info on offroad parks?

Many many acres. I'd think at least a couple hundred for 1 decent trail, and that's assuming they're all in a straight line.

As many acres as you can get. Seriously, I don't think you could make a ORV park to big. In fact if you had enough land, you could build seperate areas for ATV's verses real off road vehicles. As far as permits, etc. the BLM would have nothing to do with it, as long as vehicles did not stray onto BLM land, and only then if it was designated not for ORV's. Any other permits would come through Nevada. Business is usually regulated at the state level. In our current sue happy sociaty, insurance would also be a major concern. HTH

It Is county land but unfortunetly we have Air quality control that has nothign to do with vehicles but with DUST CONTROL. The city opened a motocross track and the city shut themselves down because of it.

It is rediculous..... But with BLM next to it can be good and bad.

The land can be gotten reasonably, not cheap but decent. I just wondered roughly how many acres some of these offroad parks were.

Hot springs ORV in Arkansas is a little over 1200 acres. Bad lands in Indiana is over 700 acres. Silver Lake in Michingan 400 acres. Iron Range Minnisota 1200 acres. Houstan valley in Gerogia is 2600 acres. Brushy Mountain Motor Sports Park in North Carolina is 1700 acres. California's Imperial Sand Dunes are 20,000 acres. Red Creek Off Road Park in Mississippi is 1256 acres. Coal Creek OHV park in Tennessee is 72,000 acres. HTH

THe local one to me has a little over 300 acres. It is fun but it's a little small. A really good park I would say should have 600+ acres with a lot of good terrain possibly different types. Woods are good but some rocks are always nice. Badlands in Indiana has a great mix everything from woods to sand dunes to a quarry. One of the most well rounded parks around. I haven't been there since January when it was 8 degrees though. I can't handle paying for 3 tanks of gas in a day. One down to the park one tank to wheel and another tank of gas home. THats just too much money thats why I go to my more local park I ususally use 3/4 of a tank total for the day.

The off-road area in our local Sportsmans Park in Keno is pretty small ... it has "over 20 acres for ... off road vehicle use." They have a track that wraps around on itself several times as well as a rock challenge, a couple of fairly steep climbs, a mud pit and a tire pit challenge. A lot can be done in a little room --- but it gets boring all too soon.

The park itself is much larger, with other areas dedicated to a shooting range, bow range, R/C airplanes, etc.
