Lake County Michigan

Lake County Michigan wants to start planning a ATV/UTV Event for their area. They have 300+ miles of trails, and area lodging is available. The County is the home of Baldwin, MI. , they have several event now that attract visitors, Blessing of the Bikes, Trout Festival, and several smaller events. The area is a favorite among fisherman, and outdoor types! My question is how many members travel to ATV/UTV events on a regular basis? And would this be of any attraction to you? Thanks

We're interested RD. Is there a local club that has a web site with the events published?

It's about a 6 hour drive for me. Of course, if they had a ferry service across that big lake, it would reduce my travel time by an hour or so.

What can you tell us about the riding? Is it all flat trail riding? Any mud or off road areas to have some fun in? Etc.

The ferry option becomes cost prohibitive once you add a trailer and passenger. Not to mention if I wanted to bring the hauler around........
from 3 years ago,
one way, 2 passengers, 1 vehicle, 1 trailer, $400.00. Round trip, $700.00.

Varied riding, hills, forest, sand trails, and hardpack. Mud pits are available, and maps can be downloaded at Lake County MI. web site. We are about 35 miles east of the Ludington Car Ferry on Highway 10. National forest comprises a big portion of the ride area. We ride different areas of the trails almost daily! Still finding new areas! Michigan is still opening up new areas, and Lake County wants to be the preferred ride area in the Midwest! I'll keep posting on this as I find out more. We have several dealers in the area that may want to join also. Thanks for the quick replies! The Michigan DNR also has maps that you can download!

Without researching myself (yeah, I'm lazy like that), what do out-of-staters have to do? Buy a trail pass of some sort?

Yes, but you need 2 passes, one for the trails, and one for secondary roads, 26 dollars a year for both. Not that bad of deal compared to some others.

A little bit of everything, I hope they get their act together and move beyond the talking stage! We have a small group that is starting to ride together, hopefully we can get it to grow! Mostly Polaris Rangers, 3 Can Ams, and several HDX's, and my lonely XTX!

Lake County, MI. is moving ahead with their ideas for an event. Baldwin Michigan is the county seat for Lake County (They have a site on the web), they are thinking about August for a time frame. I've been invited to attend the planning meetings. I'd like to get some vendors involved, but this seems like short notice, but won't hurt to try! We have miles of snowmobile trails, National Forest trails, ORV Trails, and miles of un-improved roads! Any ideas that would be of any interest are welcomed. Baldwin has the annual Blessing of the Bikes, and has a great turn out.
