Badlands
« on: July 02, 2007, 10:28:02 am »
Not sure if you guys have anything in the members-only section, but heres the info I've gotten:

http://www.badlandsoffroad.com

Also, size was discussed yesterday and according to their site its 700 acres, which isn't 2000, but still massive (the mounds is under 200 acres I believe. Scramble Area 1 is only 8 acres according to the mounds website).

The Badlands was a dream of Troy Myers since he was a young boy. Troy’s father owned and operated a motorcycle shop for many years.  And as a result, motorcycles and ATVs became a part of his life.  In 1995, Troy made his dream come true.  He purchased the old gravel quarry in Attica, and "The Badlands" was born.  He knew it would be the prefect place for riders, as he had ridden "The Pits" as a boy.  As the park grew, Troy and his wife purchased additional land, and now offer that land to 4-wheel drive vehicles, as he loved that sport as well.

The Badlands off-road park consists of several people working together to give you the most awesome time you can have off-road.  We provide some of the best trails; from mild to wild, in this part of the country.  Our staff consists of professional people with backgrounds in machine trades, business, mechanics, design, medical, and law enforcement.  We have a well-rounded staff to help you with all of your needs.  We want to make our park fun for the whole family.  We have met so many wonderful people that have visited our park; people from different backgrounds, clubs, nationalities and cultures.  These people all have one great thing in common, the love of off-roading.

The "Badlands" ORV Park is a privately-owned tract of about 700 acres in western Indiana, about 30 minutes south west of Lafayette. It is literally a smorgasbord of off-road riding: sand dunes, pea gravel hills, bottomless mud, the tightest off-camber woods trails, extreme rock crawling, shear drop-offs, hood-deep water, stream crossings, etc. You name it, it's probably here.

Sounds good man. I'm really looking forward to this trip if/when we go. I'd have to skip my other family reunion to go though, ha. One for the 4x4 show and one for badlands.. I'm on a roll.

I think the Mounds is 86 acres.

As for the Badlands, I've only been there once, but it was a blast!!

Yea, I really want to go. I've seen videos, and it looks nuts.
