    Our club is planning a trip to the Tuttle Creek ORV area in Kansas sometime in October. I know October is a busy month but we thought we'd try something local since most of us are lacking in the funds department. Tuttle Creek ORV is located on the northern end of Tuttle Creek Lake just outside of Manhattan, Kansas. Manhattan, Kansas is located near Fort Riley and KSU. If anyone is interested please let me know and suggest a weekend and number of days.

    As of the 20th fo this month I will be movig to NE for college from Oregon, I may be interested in a weekend trip. But I don't know where this area is at all. I'm in Hastings, Ne. About the only trip to Kansas that I have made is to pass through to Branson Missori. What kind of trip would this be, Mud, Rock,etc.? Let me know where from the Kansas/Nebraska border or some kind of directions and I will be planning on being there.



    Thanks, (in advance)

    Let me know more details as well,....

    Hawglet, from Hastings to Manhatten, go east on US 6 to Fairmont and then south on US 81 to Concordia, KS. About 14 miles further south turn east on US 24 which will take you into Manhatten. It's about a 190 miles one way. I don't know where the Tuttle Creek ORV area is tho'.

    The tentative dates as of now are the 12th-14th of October.
    Tuttle Creek has all types of terrain and is maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers. We normally camp at Randolph State Park which is located about 1 mi from the ORV area. For more information on Tuttle Creek check out this site:
    http://www.nwk.usace.army.mil/tuttlecreek/tuttle_home.htm

    Our club is the High Boyz and Girls 4x4 Club out of Leavenworth, KS. We've been tossing around the idea of a trip for quite some time now.

    I'd love to go, but my blazer would never make it down there. I live about 150 mi. away. Would still love to go see all you guys and your rigs.

    Ok, we will be going out to Tuttle Creek on the 12th, 13th, and 14th of October. That's Fri-Sun. Two of us from the club are going out on Friday morning and the rest will be joining us when they can get off work.
    We can either meet in Manhattan or, meet at the campsite which will be in Randolph State Park. I prefer the latter since the park is small and our trucks would be hard to miss. Our club will pick up the cost of one campsite which should be all we need since it's open camping. The only thing anyone will have to worry about is the $5 a day for the vehicle and splitting the cost of firewood. I think Saturday night we'll be going into town to visit Aggieville and have a few drinks.

    Once in Manhattan, find hwy 24/177 and head north to hwy 77. Basically, if you're following 24/177, it will take you right to 77. Just keep heading north! Follow the 77 to hwy 16 and make a right heading East. Cross the big bridge that goes over Tuttle Creek Lake. Right after the bridge make a right into the Randolph camp area. Go straight untill you get to the loop. We'll be camping some where along the loop.
    If you think you'll get lost we can make a meeting place in Manhattan!
