Has anybody gone there yet, what is the place like? I saw lots of mud bog pics on the site, is there any more to it than that?

I highly doubt it, mud ranch says enough. I don't mind mud but I don't make it a habit to just go drop the jeep in 3 foot of slop.

I think the one in Lake geneva shut down. The only 2 are really close are insane terrain and badlands.

Yea my problem is I HATE MUD lol. I will drive in, I will wheel in but if I don't get to wheel more rocks and rock trails it is kind of pointless to me.

I didn't know that park in michigan was mostly mud, Sounds like you'd like kentucky, It's all flat rock stacked nicely with the waters and criks forming nice trails

I towed my jeep out to AZ and Cali last winter. (I used to live in cali) so I wheeled the piss out of it there. Nothing beats that.

The Fountains is illegal. Stay out. People that go place like that give wheelers a bad name.

I Might be up for that trip too!! Been doing LOTS of wheeling down in Braidwood/Coal City area but I'd LOOOOVE to make it to a park.

That would give me a good reason to FINALLY install my C.B. and put on some tow hooks!!

If the snow stays AWAY tonight (2/24/11) I'm gonna head down this weekend with another friend and his Jeep. Mine is mildly modded and his is bone stock except for BFG A/T's. Should be interesting!

No problem .

We didn't wind up going just because of this reason. Always fun to watch green horns in the learning process but I didn't want the entire experience to be a bad one for them.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks We/I can head out. I'll have to stay in touch with you to get the scoop on conditions.

Cool! I'm ALWAYS up for wheeling... especially with experienced Jeepers. I'm fairly new but have had my share of off road.
