Explore Wisconsin on Your ATV | 5 Fun Places for Four-Wheelers
July 18, 2017
Wisconsin is a state made for ATVs. Riding a quad runner through the woods and tearing through a trail on four-wheelers is an exhilarating experience.
Off-road activities for ATVs in Wisconsin can be a ton of fun for weekend warrior and outdoor-loving families alike. We found five awesome places to take your ATV around the state, and this is just for starters.
1. Riverview ATV Park
Kewaunee County is one of the few places in Northeast Wisconsin with public trails for ATVs. The Riverview ATV Park features 20 miles of trails, including a hill-climb area and an intense-use challenge course.
Off-road motorcycles are also allowed in the park. However, riders must purchase county park stickers before riding on trails approved for those vehicles. Find out more about this park and the Bay Lake ATV Club on Facebook. The park also announced plans for updates and improvements in the near future. Check out the local news coverage below for more on that story.
2. Dyracuse Recreational Park
South of Wisconsin Rapids, in the Town of Rome, you’ll find 10 miles of ATV track on 334 acres. The Dyracuse Recreational Park features Super-Cross and Motocross tracks as well as an area for young ATV riders.
This ATV park has been around since 1982, and it’s run by the Town of Rome and the Rapid Angels Motorcycle Club. The park gets its name from the Dyracuse Mound, a prominent landmark in Adams County.
The park is open Wednesday through Sunday, May through November. Day, seasonal, and family passes are available. Or, you can rent the entire park on days when it’s not open to the public.
3. Marinette/Florence County Trails
Head “up north” to take your four-wheelers on nearly 200 miles of woodsy trails connecting Marinette and Florence counties including the communities of Pembine and Dunbar.
The ATV Campground at McClintock Park allows for primitive camping, and the park’s Homestead Trail connects riders to the rest of the system. Visit the Dun-Good Riders Club website for a complete map of ATV and snowmobile trails in Marinette County.
4. Langlade County Trails
Another northern Wisconsin destination for ATVs and UTVs is the state-funded trail system in Langlade County. The season opens May 1, weather and trail conditions permitting.
Also in Langlade county is the Augustyn Springs ATV trail. Travel Wisconsin says this 16-mile trail features terrain with rolling hills.
According to the Antigo Chamber of Commerce, the two-way trails used to be old logging roads. Langlade County also offers the Parrish Highland Trail, Pickerel/Pearson ATV Trail, and the White Lake ATV Trail.
5. Oconto County ATV Trails
You’ll definitely need to schedule more than one trip to Oconto County with your squad’s quad runners if you want to see all this area has to offer. The county has 450 miles of trails open to ATV riders! The interconnected system goes through the Nicolet National Forest.
Oconto County is a convenient day trip for people in the Appleton/Fox Cities or Green Bay/De Pere areas. As they say on the county’s tourism website, it will take less than a full tank of gas for a round trip. Trailheads are conveniently placed around the county for easy access.
