It’s summer time in the Ozarks! We are so lucky to have the amenities of the city right in our backyards and the beauty of the Ozarks all around us. Summer is a perfect time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors! All terrain vehicles are a favorite of Ozarkers to zip around tracks, off road in the woods and feel the breeze on a hot summer day. There are tons of great places to get out and go four wheeling around Springfield. Here are a few places with designated areas for ATVs and other recreational vehicles!
Located in Elkhead, Soggy Bottom Motorcross Park is just a short drive from Springfield with tons to offer for thrill seekers. They have specific courses for quad riders and dirt bikers alike. There are three main tracks to run that feature a variety of terrains to keep you on your toes. There’s a 110 acre tract of land to play in. Most of the action here is for dirt bikers, but they’re welcoming to anyone who wants to come out! Fans of the park rave about the owners who are described as being super helpful and very friendly. They also have camp grounds and cabins for people on a weekend excursion. Plus, it’s really affordable! Only $20 per day per rider is a great value!

Cooper Creek ATV Area
15968 Truman Road
Drive from SGF: 1.5 Hours
This 400 acre tract of land is currently managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers and is completely free to use. It’s the only area on Truman Lake that allows ATV and dirt bike use, but not any other kind of off road vehicle. There are tons of open hills, established trails and open riding areas. It’s a bit of a drive from Springfield, but it’s a great setting by the water and has a lot to offer riders!
