The Park Is Open
For 2015 we are looking to freshen things up again, we are anticipating changing the direction of the A track and adding a few new obstacles, we are hoping to build an endurocross style area with some telephone poles, rocks and tires. and we are going to
re build and ad on to the RZR track area to make it even more side by side friendly. Please remember if you see a member in a piece of equipment to respectfully stay a safe distance away and let's keep 2015 a great year for the corridor's only "free" plae to ride.
Also I have noticed a lot of people throwing out trash when the trash can is only a couple feet away remember it is your responsibility to pick up after your self and to help keep our park clean littering will result in a $200 fine if someone reports you and dumping of appliances or large items is a $500 fine. Thanks
The Lakeview Off Road Riders are a non Profit group of off road enthusiasts that enjoy the sport of off road riding. We welcome everyone with a positive outlook for off road riding to join our club and donate in anyway they see fit. Our club maintains a 147 acre off road park near Solon, formerly refered to as 600 Acres, now named Lakeview OHV. The property is leased to the State of Iowa (DNR), and owned by The Army Corps Of Engineers. The park has 2 motocross tracks, 2 childrens areas for 100cc and under machines, and a new for 2014 pit bike track designed by Frenchy, it has been very popular. There is also a mixture of wooded and open trails. The soil is challenging and can go from deep mud to dry hard packed clay to deep soft sand all on the same trail.
We have marked trees in our park as locaters for emt's if you are out and about watch for the stripes on the tree's it will help the medics find you if you go down and need help. The sherriffs dept. and local first respondrs have a copy of our map of the colored trees. We will soon be posting a large scale map on our bathroom area.
To ride at our park you must have an Iowa titled and currently registered ORV, this can be done at your local county recorder. If you are registering your machine for the first time, are transferring a registration, or are obtaining a user permit for an ORV for the first time, and are a resident, you must go to the county recorder in the county of your residence.
Iowa nonresident user permits may be purchased at an ELSI II vendor who is a decal agent or a County Recorder's Office. Any Walmart can get you one or Guppys on the Go at the Shueyville Exit off I380 or follow this link to find your nearest ELSI II vendorhttp://www.iowadnr.gov/Portals/idnr/uploads/files/elsivendors.pdf
Here is a link to the DNR page for registering a non registered ORV

Our goal is to maintain a safe, fun and clean off road riding area at Lakeview OHV Park, and to work with the State and Federal Government, to continue to improve the park, using Federal and State grants and donations from members and sponsors of the sport. Our club could use your help to continue maintaining the existing trails and tracks while looking for new ideas to improve our park.
