Trails UpdateOff-Highway Vechicles

Ready to ride? Explore the trails in Turkey Bay, Land Between The Lakes' designated off-highway vehicle area. Pitch a tent in the camping area and get a good night's rest under the stars. You'll need it the next day to ride the many miles of exciting trails.

Turkey Bay has approximately 100 miles of OHV trails which cover a variety of terrain, offering something for every skill level!

Camping is permitted in Turkey Bay OHV Area at designated areas near the lake and along road 167. Chemical toilets, unloading ramps, and drinking water are available. Wake up and ride directly from your campsite!

The ridge tops and valleys provide beautiful vistas with challenging terrain.

There is also a new kid's area - Turkey Trot - a 1/2 mile kids' riding/learning trail. The entire area is fenced off and incorporates many fundamental obstacles for beginning riders (small rocks/logs, uphill/downhill/sidehill challenges, sharp turns, and whoop-dee-doo's), providing children an avenue to learn trail riding basics to become more confident on their machine.

Turkey Bay OHV Area Main Trail 3-11-2014 During the most recent Turkey Bay OHV Area trail assessment, a major washout on the main trail was discovered. This washout has made the trail impassable, and is just one of the many repairs needed for visitor safety. This photo shows a staff member standing in a washout that is several feet deep and wide. Heavy equipment is working on the trails at this time.
