Ok guys so I've been really bored with my current riding spots and there really just isnt many people to ride with that I know. So if you're in Illinois post what area you live in and maybe we can make somethin happen!!

I live in waverly, Which is about 30 minutes south of Springfield

P.S.- If this could be stickied it would be awesome thanks guys!

I've came through there and seen the entrance to the park, never really stopped in there though, what kinda park is it? tracks? or mostly trails?

there land is 500 acres and they have 1 mx track for dirt bikes 1 small mx track 4 quads 1 practice track for quads and a tt flat track. people might tell you the woods suck but that was like 4yrs ago an they have been working the trails alot this year and are going to stop letting utilitys with 25's or bigger tires on the grounds because that is what fucked up the trails in the first place. you can cover pretty much all the trails in a day. i race on the tt track in the up to 350 class. its $12 per person a day to ride from 8am- whenever it gets dark they have camping $10 tent an i think its $20-25 for rv with electric, they will usually cut you a deal if you are going to be there more than one day. they also want you to buy a ill ohv sticker if you dont have one there $11 for a year most likely they wont ask. i will be there next week for memorial day im staying thursday night till sun morning, so if you wanna come down an ride i can be a guide to show you around the woods an tracks. the best part they have is on the far southside of the grounds that they keep gated during rainy weather so there are hardly any rutts. well let me know whats up i dont know if i left anything out.

yeah its family owned an opperated an they have so much shit going on that its hard for them to keep up with everything, but yeah they have been working on getting the trails leveled an have fix alot of them but some are worse than others. not to mention every time it rains hard it floods it out an brings in more debri. heck yeah just let me know if your heading down sometime an me an the guys that i ride with can show you were to ride without getting hung up or suck up to your handle bars, lol. it usually takes about 45 min-1hr to go all around the edge of the grounds.

I'm about 50 miles south of Chicago. My buddys and I usually go to the badlands; its about an hour and a half south on I65 in Attica, IN. Their website is www.badlandsoffroad.com

They have 800 acres of trails, tracks, mud, creeks, you name it. They used to allow camping not sure if they still do or not. Cool place to go to though.

I am 45min south of the Chicago. I ride lots of trails in Crete where I live also in Beecher and Glenwood. Id be down to ride in the next week or two if the fields dry up some more or freezes.

I usually take trips to Baldwin MI or Badlands
