Badlands IN?

Hey guys, new to the offroad scene. I usually just go offroad in the corn fields out here in Illinois..

My buddies are going to the badlands and invited me along.

Is my little 2.5l gonna be ok in the badlands?

Advice on trails to avoid? Advice in general?

You'll be fine with just decent tires. The Badlands has the biggest mish mash of offroad rigs I've ever seen. Geo Trackers, hacked up Subaru Brats, 60k crawlers etc etc.

That being said I went to the Badlands last spring for the first time in 5 years and it is NOT what I remember from when I was growing up.

The off road park in Marseilles that's stated below looks awesome, for what little off road 4x4 parks there are.

When I get on my computer I'll link you to a video of some guys tooling around at that park.

There is another off road course near Atkinson, IL. Last I heard it was smaller than I had last went (sold tillable land to farmer), and infested with teenagers on four wheelers.

I've never been disappointed at the Badlands. Went there quite often when I was in Indy. The trails are always changing - some easier, most harder or more tricky. Lots of fun stuff too - gravel pits, sand hills, rock garden, and it goes on....
Any type off-road truck will do just fine, there are easy trails and extreme trails - they are all marked.
But even the easy stuff has some challenges - it's not just a drive thru the woods!
