Recommended Posts

The Land Between the Lakes Kentucky, Turkey Bay ORV Park... Sits on 170,000 Acres of National Recreational Land. Turkey Bay has over 100 miles of Trails and Hills decently maintained. I Used to go every Memorial Day Weekend. Thinking of going back soon!!! A few things you absolutely must know ahead of time.

#1 The nearest Gas station, last time I was there was around 45 min away... bring extra cans!!!!

#2 Rocks on the trails range in sizes from Quarters to Bowling balls to Volkswagens.  Tire Plugs, Spare parts, AND TOOLS recommended. Again nearest town is 45 min away.

#3 THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!!!   The park is located in a DRY county... nearest adult beverage over an hour and a half away one way. They do sell Ice at Ranger station.

#4 Easy as hell to get Lost. Ride in pairs. No telling how well GPS will work in the deep woods.

Just  how  dry  is the  county considering  the  history  of  the  area  ?    :D   Old  traditions  and thirsts  die  hard and there's all  sorts of  us  like reviving  some  old  traditions.

Somehow  I can  picture  quads  replacing  the  old  hot rods albeit  on a  much smaller  scale  :D:D

Brutha we would roll in there on Friday night. Each man had 3 cases of beer and various bottles of booze. Yet each year on the last day we would all be putting our last few dollars in a pot to make that ole Memorial day B double E double R UN.... Can't remember a single year it didn't happen... As far as the "hotrods" before the UTV (joto side by sides) craze, it was the bad ass suped up, nitro fueled Sand Rails. Them things can climb anything..

The county voted to go wet this year.  There are several package stores in the county now.  You won't have to go near as far to "fill up" now.

Well how about that!!!

Hey let me ask..I'm assuming you are from around there. Are the Rangers still total and complete Douche bags at the Bay still???  Back in the late 90's several of us quite going due to the unrelenting harassment over petty silly shit by the Rangetards...   For years every Memorial weekend several Hundred people from my home town would descend upon the Bay. They started throwing us in jail so we quite coming back.

      ATV trails to be connected by 2020
      Local news Jun 30, 2018

      New bill could increase tourism in the county
      LOCK HAVEN — Due to a hard-fought change in the state’s fiscal code, Clinton County will finally have an all-terrain vehicle trail connecting the Whiskey Springs Trail to Bloody Skillet by 2020.
      State Rep. Mike Hanna (D-Lock Haven) had a hand in pushing the legislation through, said county Commissioner Jeff Snyder, who has been supportive of ATV tourism in the region.
      Hanna said the project had been in the works since the era of former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who ended his term in 2011.
      “We just decided it was time to get this,” he said.
      The bill, an amendment to the fiscal code, says that appropriations for the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) must include the agency’s collaboration with PennDOT to “develop, open and maintain an ATV trail connecting the Whiskey Springs ATV Trail to the Bloody Skillet ATV Trail by utilizing existing state roads and state forest roads by April 1, 2020.”
      The amendment also provides for DCNR and PennDOT to “implement the full Northcentral Pennsylvania ATV Initiative” which would create a network of ATV trails from Clinton County to the New York State border by April 1, 2024. This network would link the Haneyville, Bloody Skillet, Snowshoe Rail Trail, Denton Hills and Whiskey Springs trails.
      Central Mountains ATV Association President Henry Sorgen IV said his organization has been working on the initiative for the last four years, trying to connect all the ATV trails in northcentral Pennsylvania up to the New York State border. The organization has 1,300 members.
      Sorgen said Hanna and State Sen. Joseph Scarnati (R-Brockway) were instrumental in making the necessary changes to the fiscal code. But, he said, it wouldn’t have been possible without support from township and borough councils, county government, regular citizens and CMATVA.
      “It’s always been a team initiative,” he said.
      CMATVA gave a presentation to the governor’s staff several months ago, which “started that ball rolling,” said Sorgen. “It’s all about tourism…that’s gonna be huge.”
      PennDOT has a policy that ATV riders cannot use state roads. But state law says the district manager can authorize ATV usage on state roads. So, Sorgen said, the fiscal code amendment is a way to remedy that contradiction.
      Hanna said the project will rely very little on state roads to connect the trails. DCNR is conducting a study through Larson Design Group to determine the best way to connect the trails without using state roads.
      One place ATV riders will have to use a state road is the South Renovo Bridge, Hanna said.
      Hanna was clear that the development of these trails will have no cost to taxpayers. “As far as trail development goes,” he said, it will all be funded by ATV registration fees. Right now, there are around $180,000 in that fund, said Sorgen.
      “There’s no doubt about it, motorized recreation has a tremendous economic impact,” said Hanna. “The number of trucks, trailers and ATVs (on those trails on a holiday weekend) is phenomenal.”
      Sorgen said CMATVA wants to make northcentral Pennsylvania’s trail network “the Hatfield McCoy of Pennsylvania.”
      ATV tourism is a $1 billion industry in West Virginia, and Hatfield McCoy is one of the state’s most popular trails.
      Sorgen said he is sure ATV tourism will be a boon to local residents in Clinton, Center, Potter, Elk and Cameron counties. In Germania, which is near the Denton Hills ATV Trail, he said, there is a small general store with one gas pump that used to make $1,000 a month in gas sales. After ATV travel was legalized there, the store’s monthly sales skyrocketed to 10 times that.
      “That’s the potential,” he said. “What’s (ATV tourism) gonna do for little Renovo? It’s gonna boom.”
      And, according to a study on ATV recreation in Clinton County done in 2015, the average rider spends approximately $1,400 in the county annually. Those surveyed said they would visit about five more times a year (about 12 times total) if connector trails were built between the existing trail systems and the surrounding communities. The study said increased visits would more than double the annual spending per rider.
      Right now, Sorgen said, there are 1,800 miles of riding trail, and 49 percent of that is open to ATVs, whether that be on roads operated by DCNR, private property owners or township councils. But that is set to change soon, with the new state fiscal code amendment. Sorgen estimated the new law will add 200 miles of viable trail. And, he said, the existing CMATVA map will change once they submit the new map to PennDOT.
      Hanna said for people who have concerns about motorized recreation, the Larson Group study is taking environmental impact into consideration.
      “It’s not just “slap a trail on,“” said Hanna.
      And Sorgen said he fully supports finding an environmentally friendly way to implement ATV trails that would connect the existing ones.
      He lamented that while “98 percent of us want to follow the rules,” 2 percent of ATV riders don’t respect the land and want to offroad where it’s not allowed.
      “We don’t want to be in wetlands,” he said. “We don’t want to be in natural areas where we don’t belong.”

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.
