    Does Michigan allow wheeling on state park lands?

    Unless marked open... consider it closed. Unfortunately that is how MI has become.

    There is The Mounds ORV park in Genesse County.
    And Silverlake Sand Dunes.

    Those are about the only legal places to truely wheel. Unless you find dusty two track wheeling.
    Oh there is Drummond Island also.

    You moving here or just visiting?

    The farther away from Detroit you get the better your chances of wheeling. Some of the more rural areas will have some nice mud bogs. DEEP bogs.

    Rock crawling... no.

    Thanks for the info. Does the Mounds have any rocks? I might be moving somewhat west of Detroit and just checking to see what and where the wheeling is.

    the mounds have no rocks, but they do have slabs of concrete, lol

    the only rocks that i know of in michigan are on drummond island, everything else in michigan is mud and sand, and a few trails. but all the trails are up north.

    Yeah, the cement is gone. For what its worth... how true I dont know. Something about for safety reasons with the quads and bikes. NOt the cement itself, but the rebar that was starting to poke through it from it breaking off pieces.

    Been gone for at least a month now. Seen the pictures. Havent been out there yet, but seen the pcitures of it all cracked up and blocked off, ready to be towed away.

    They went in with dozers again and smoothed out some of the ruts.

    Just was there on Saturday the 11th. All I can say is HOLY CR@P that place has gotten torn up in the last couple of years! There was a few trails I avoided with my unimog even. They need to bring a 4wd tractor with a deep chisel plow.
