    yeah, i go to northwestern. i keep expecting to hear that there's all these places to go further south in illinois or up in nw illinois, but i guess not. badlands seems like a really cool place, but something about having to pay to wheel seems weird to me.

    It's not a big deal! it's a sweet place. Just with a blazer you can't go there and expect to come out with no body damage. Most of the trails there are jeep trails. Me and my G/F went for a whole weekend and it was 25.00 so it's not bad.

    They have to have a way to keep the park up and that's the way they make the money.

    how is the camping there? if i could get out there for a weekend it might not be too bad. the body damage doesnt worry me at the moment - i have a bronco ii, though im in the process of selling it. what's WI like for trails and stuff like that?

    They have great camping.. 15 minutes away, they have showers and bathrooms. 10 for the weekend to camp. Plus there is a gas station 5 minutes away.

    If you have a B2 go over to RRORC.COM. It is a Ranger and Bronco website.
