Here are some upcoming off-roading adventures you may want to partake in at the ORV Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
How the Off-Road Vehicle Park began:
“Off-roading in Hot Springs began in the late 1970’s with people ‘wheeling on a multitude of timber company logging roads, and utility company right-of-ways. Over the years this “unofficial trail system” grew into an impressive array of trails. It was great while it lasted… in 1999 the landowners closed access to the area and put the property up for sale.
In 2001, a group of off-road businessmen, enthusiasts and conservationists purchased the acreage with the intent of developing the nation’s premiere off-roading destination, while preserving the land’s natural beauty.”
What ORV has to offer:
“The Park includes the majority of the original trail system, and new trails and obstacles with varying degrees of difficulty are continuously being built on every terrain type imaginable — hill climbs (both “finesse” and “horsepower required” types), mud pits, rock gardens, water crossings, you name it. All trails are mapped and posted with difficulty ratings for the various vehicle types, so you always know your location, and what to expect terrain-wise.
We offer both tent and RV campsites nestled in beautiful shaded hardwoods. Our shower-house and rest rooms are clean and climate-controlled.
• RV campsites with electrical and water hook-ups
• Primitive tent camping sites
• Restrooms / shower house
• Convenience store
• 3900 sq. ft. pavilion for group events

• Over 1,250 pristine wooded acres
• Family-oriented environment
• Club and group discounts available
