New York State Owned Off-Road Park Project

I have only begun to brush the surface of this monumental task. Through the beginnings of my research efforts over the last few months, I have discovered that there are several states West of the Mississippi River that have one or more state owned ORV parks or recreational areas. California for example has 6 such parks they own and operate. However here, east of the Mississippi River, ORV parks are few and far between. The ones that we do have here are privately owned and can get to be expensive due to insurance and liability issues. What I am proposing is a lower cost option for the Northeast USA.

With all the bad press we in the off-road community get due to those among us that fall in the 10% rule, we have fewer and fewer land and trails open and available to us. Let those of us, who are true enthusiasts, band together to petition the State of New York to repurpose some of the state land and reopen them as an ORV/OHV Recreational area. These parks could be multi use parks that allow for all types of OHVs. The scope of the parks would allow our community to safely and responsibility enjoy what we do.

Todayís off-road community member for the most part is nothing like our fore-fathers. We are responsible stewards of the land that we trek on. We are always trying to preserve what we have for future generations to enjoy as well. Let us band together and show the government that we are not the people that lead to the decisions of land and trail closures.

There is a huge unknown (to the govít) need for safe, LEGAL, OPEN places for us to enjoy our sport and hobby. By the State of New York opening parks like this, it will be a win-win for everyone. The state government will generate more revenue for their budget and the off-road community will get low cost LEGAL, OPEN places to enjoy taking our vehicles off-road.

Here is the link to the online petition:
State owned Off-Road Vehicle Recreational Park Petition

Thank you to all who view and support this project.

The way I understand it is that there is no set location as of right now and no plans to make any. The petition was to persuade NY State to build some.

Maurice Hinchey is a representative in my area who is the SAME A-HOLE that wanted to close down MOAB so chances of this happening is extremely slim. If people in this state stop voting for these idiots, we would not have these stupid laws in our state but our people keep voting them in. Unless you have a decent amount of land or a lot of money, this is not going to happen. Remember ATV registration? Yeah that money was designed to go to trail maintenance and making new trails instead none of the money went to any of it and you really have no place to legally ride your ATV let alone wheel your truck. Good luck on your mission though and I really hope you succeed Bandit.
