School Creek ORV Area

The School Creek ORV area consists of approximately 287 acres. It is restricted to vehicles that are 50 inches wide or less. Full size 4-wheel drive vehicles and dune buggies are not allowed to operate on the trails. ORV?s that are not licensed for the highway cannot be operated on roadways outside of the riding area. The ORV area is free of charge and has a staging/parking lot. Trails can be accessed from the east or west sides of the parking lot. Vault toilets are located at the parking lot and at the east riding area. A dumpster is provided at the parking lot. Since the park area has limited maintenance, it?s up to all users of the area to help keep the litter picked up and to follow the rules. The Milford Lake staff however cautions all the users of the ORV area to please keep safety in mind and remember there are other users in the area.
