I've heard alot about this place and that it's 2300 acres and on good days it can normally have 4-5 thousand riders. Has anyone ever rode here ? I'm told it's the best place around here and the weather kept me from goin tomorrow plus it's my b-day and don't wanna make a 2hr drive.

Make sure to give them a ring before haulin down here. Apparently they will close after a couple of hard rains. I guess trying to cut down on erosion. They didn't use to do this. Of course you use to be able to ride for free also. Just a heads up for you

Their number

We made a trip there last summer and had a good time. Definately worth a trip. I wouldnt want to see 4 to 5 thousand people there though, you would be running over each other lol

I say there was about 100 riders there the day we rode and it was a nice saturday (kinda hot but nice).

Like someone else posted you can call or check on the web site to make sure they are not closed. :thumbsup:

It is actually part of the Land Between the lakes area. We ride there all the time. It is well worth the trip but definately call before you haul, they close for rain all the time.

I would definately call before you go there this weekend, I live close to Turkey Bay, and we have had plenty of rain all week. I wouldnt be surprised if they shut it down. Beleive me I have the mistake of going without calling plenty of times, but wont do it again. Would hate to see someone from out of town make the drive, just to find out it is closed. :thumbsup:

Yeah but what do meteorologist know? I think this time of year they use the dart board method to predict.
