    Updated with websites. I'll add more to the list later as possible. Waiting on a response email from a couple of ORV Parks to confirm they are still open.

    Someday in the future Tolar will be a good park. As for now - it is an expensive way to drive ranch roads looking for the trails. Almost all the trails we found it was best to have sliders and lockers. Check the Texas BS thread for my videos from a couple of the trails. You have to have a fully built rig to do the stuff out there.

    Plenty of mud even during a dry season. But bring somebody with truck that can pull cause most people out there tend to not lend a hand.

    Appreciate it. I got tired of hunting the darkside of the Internet instead of doing something useful. Once I get some time later this week I'll get some more listed up and organize the list based on what part of Texas it is in.

    There's probably a few beaches that would be considered mild offroading like San Luis Pass on west end of Galveston Island, Bryan Beach SP by Freeport/Quintana area, Matagorda or north end of Padre Island out of Corpus Christi but they aren't officially ORV Parks tho. Maybe you could add a section for that too.

    isnt there a place called "copper mines" around lawton, OK?

    also you can hit up some trails on the red river, if you cross the TX, OK border like your going to "bills catfish" in waurika, ok.

    just google map "bills catfish, waurika, ok" and you will see the river. you can get to it from the right side of the highway and just follow the trails down. its fun for atv's, dirt bikes, trucks.

    and once your done playin you can go get some tasty fried fish!

    The area on the red river. I have also seen people offloading in the red river botts where 259 crosses just south of Idabel, ok. I have no idea how many trails there are or how legal it is.

    I still want to get a little more info on that - probably will post a "wheel at your own risk" disclaimer.

    How was the place? Was it an all out 4x4 park or was it 2x4 friendly also?

    Well it is 2x4 friendly if they go when its dry like right now. When it starts to get wet out or next year after the mud boggers hit it, it will be a 4x4 only park(Its still new). However, if they want to come into the park they can drive on the main road through it, on the way out I saw the workers grading the road with a tractor.

    My answer to your question is I am not sure. We drove through most of the park in 2x4, not hitting any mud on our little reconnaissance trip. look under houston area meet thread page 28, to give you an idea. The trails are not marked and if you get to a bad spot it would be a long way to back up.

    Sounds like a good park then. Mainly for 4x4s and 2x4s if the driver is heavy with the skinny pedal.

    Maybe we could get this thread stickied so it is easier to find in the Texas Section.
