If you live in Western Indiana and you want a new place to go ride your new Jetmoto ATV, take a spin at the Badlands Off-Road Park. The Badlands is a privately owned riding area that has over 800-acres of sand dunes, pea gravel hills, bottomless mud to test your skills in, off-trail woods trails, extreme rock-crawling areas and more.
The owners wanted to develop a family friendly riding area, that would encourage family outings, safety and fun. They have several different riding areas including one for children just starting out with an average age of 3. Motorcycles or ATVs must be 100cc or less for this riding area.
This is a great place to bring your camera along for the ATV ride. If you are riding in the early morning hours or near dusk, you can get photos of the sunrise and sunsets and the wildlife residents of the area such as deer, fox, or coyotes. If you happen to be riding your ATV on a really hot day, they even installed a great way to cool off as the park has two huge drain tiles to race through, jumping into a pool of water. And if you love getting dirty, really down and dirty on your ATV, they have very large mud areas to roll through.
The park is open everyday of the year except Christmas and Thanksgiving. The hours of operation are 9AM to 5PM weekdays and weekends. The rules to ride are very simple:
*No alcohol on the property.
*Helmets are required at all times, and boots.
*Flags are required. Flags are sold on-site if you don't bring your own.
*No riding double.
*There is a 5 mph speed limit in parking areas.
*You must sign a waiver of liability.
