Love the Mud? Off-Highway Vehicle Area in Western KY is a 4-Wheel Drive Dream
Today, I was scrolling through Reddit and one of the topics was "Vacationing in KY. Need Redneck stuff to do." Redneck stuff? What does that mean?
He clarified that he wants to attend gun shows, camp, go to a mud fest or truck rally, and eat BBQ. Mmmk. Muddin'. Yeah, muddin'. Most property owners frown upon people using their land for muddin'. But I found out there is a place only a couple hours from the tri-state that welcomes ATVers, Jeepers, dirt bikers, and everyone else who wants to get in on the 4-wheel drive action.
Okay, I will be upfront with you. I have been muddin' before and it just doesn't really appeal to me. But, I think I'm the minority!
Located in the beautiful Land Between the Lakes area, Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area provides designated OHV and primitive trails for OHV camping opportunities. The area consists of approximately 100 miles of primary, secondary, and tertiary trails for many different OHV riding experiences. I'm no off-road expert but the site boasts a wide array of trails that range from beginner to "challenge." They even have a youth course: "A 1/2 mile kids’ riding and learning trail is available in the flat, wooded area near May’s Cemetery. The area is fenced off and incorporates many fundamental obstacles for beginning riders like small rocks and logs, sharp turns, uphill/downhill/side hill challenges, and whoop-dee-doo’s. Help build your child’s confidence; teach basic trail riding techniques on Turkey Trot Trail."
Turkey Bay also offers camping, beaches, swimming, fishing, and other fun things in the Land Between the Lakes area like hiking, horseback riding, dining, water sports and more.
So, if you are planning your spring, summer, and even fall getaways, and you have an off-road vehicle you are dying to try out, this looks like a fun, family-friendly outing.
