Rausch Creek is closed on Friday's during the month of march. however, we are able to camp on the property that night. my husband emailed them and they said, "You are allowed on the property the night before for camping, you can come and go out the driveway as needed, but don't go driving around the comp course or onto the trails. If you get there before dark, you may see others wheeling, but they should have paid earlier in the day to go wheeling." (please see "Rausch Creek Email Response"). The hubby and I are camping Friday and Saturday night, there will be several others camping both nights as well. The park opens for trail riding at 8 am on saturday. once everyone is regisered we will head out for the day. sunday will be the same way.

Rausch Creek Email Response:
"This is what you need to know. All camping is to the right of the
driveway in the designated area. The rules are posted at the potties and
at some of the sites. Basically, clean up your area when done, pack out
your trash, use the designated firerings in the tent sites (don’t set up a
ring of rocks in the parking lot!), no large fires or fireworks. You are
allowed on the property the night before for camping, you can come and go
out the driveway as needed, but don't go driving around the comp course or
onto the trails. If you get there before dark, you may see others
wheeling, but they should have paid earlier in the day to go wheeling.

The office will be open the following morning starting at 8 a.m. for
everyone in your group to get registered. If you are new to the park,
you’ll need drivers and passengers to come up and register. The
membership form requires driver’s license and vehicle info from everyone,
even the passengers.

We recently clarified our policy on alcohol as follows: Anyone observed
drinking and driving will permanently lose their membership privileges and
their affiliated club will be sanctioned. No alcohol is allowed on the
property except for the camping area. Alcohol may be consumed only AFTER
you are done wheeling for the day and only in the camping area. Do not
walk around the comp course with alcohol. Do not drive around the trails
with alcohol in your vehicle, leave it at camp."

Thank you.

FYI: as far as food goes it is BYO. hamburgers and hot dogs can be made over the fire. but for those that want a more "civilized" meal , there are restaurants near by.

if it's any consolation, the green trails (beginner) have "go arounds" for most obstacles. so if there is something that is too much you can bypass it. also, we had a stock commander with a first timer go on the trail last time and he did fine.

Well if Im going then you can pretty much call me a mechanic. I've completed the automotively concentrated courses they offer at Central Michigan University, Im a mechanical engineering technology major, and Im now going to be going for my SAE certification. I wouldnt worry about breaking anything, with the right parts (make sure you bring spares!) and a bit of inginuety (sp?) most jeepers can fix just about anything! I really hope I can make it though.

Rules & Regulations

I pulled this directly off of their website. If you have any questions about their rules please ask me or give them a call. I would strongly suggest posting any questions that you have, just in case others are wondering the same.



Rausch Creek Off Road Park Rules and Regulations

1) Before entering the park, members are required to check in at the Office, pay admission, and pick-up a wristband and vehicle tag.

b. GROUPS SHOULD EXCHANGE CELL NUMBERS SO THEY CAN CONTACT EACH OTHER IN THE EVENT OF LATE ARRIVALS. It will be up to each group to send someone back to the office to pick up late arrivals. So please exchange cell phone numbers with each other.

2) The minimum group size is two vehicles.

3) Members shall keep their membership card with them at all times and keep their wristband on during their visit. Vehicles must have the proper vehicle tag in plain sight.

4) Members wishing to camp overnight prior to their day of wheeling must make appropriate arrangements prior to their visit. Campers who are still in the park past 10:00 a.m. the following day shall be required to pay for that additional day.

5) Seatbelt use is mandatory.

6) All vehicles should have at least one tow point and a full-size spare.

7) All street legal vehicles must be insured. All drivers must hold a valid drivers license and be covered by an automobile insurance policy. Competition rigs are welcome.

8) No littering. Pack in and pack out everything. Designated campfire areas are for cooking and burning of firewood only. All campfires must be put out when leaving the camping area. Check at the Office for any Burn Ban advisories.

9) Quiet hours at the camping areas are 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

10) All vehicles must be off the trails by DUSK, except for repair or recovery purposes. Nighttime wheeling is prohibited!

11) Anyone observed drinking and driving will permanently lose their membership privileges and their affiliated club will be sanctioned. No alcohol is allowed on the property except for the camping area. Alcohol may be consumed only AFTER you are done wheeling for the day and only in the camping area. Do not walk around the comp course with alcohol. Do not drive around the trails with alcohol in your vehicle, leave it at camp.

12) Stay on designated trails. Do not park vehicles where they might block a trail. Do not drive past the park's boundary markers or around gates. Cross streams only at designated stream crossings. Traffic may cross over or drive upon the Water Line only where it is part of a designated trail. Avoid bushwacking around muddy trails so we can keep our muddy trails muddy. Members should not drive through the hunt club's food plots. If you stack rocks to get through an obstacle, UNSTACK them please!!

13) Members should check the posted map at the Office for information about possible trail closures and updates on new trails.

Any person observing a violation of these rules or any unsafe or suspect behavior will report it to their club representative or a Park officer as soon as possible.

Members who disregard the rules of Rausch Creek Off-Road Park, or pose a safety threat to themselves or other Members, will be ejected from the park without a refund. Repeated violations will result in loss of membership.

Park Contact Info:
Lynn 570-640-0194
Bruce 610-842-3596

Seltzer's Towing (AAA) 570-739-0050

NEAREST HOSPITAL: Pottsville Hospital 570-621-5060. Get on 81 North. Take the St. Clair exit. Stay on Route 61 for 7 miles into Pottsville. At Dunkin Donuts make a LEFT. Go up the hill about 3 blocks and hospital is on the left.

The rules highlighted in orange are rules that I find are particularly important for both safety's sake and for upholding the "tread lightly" philosophy. Please be sure to follow them at all times. Keep in mind, legal places to wheel are dwindling. In order to keep places like Rausch Creek open we (off-roaders) need to be responsible and use common sense.

Also as we get closer to the trip I will PM my cell phone number to everyone going.

Hmm, the full size spare thing is confusing me. I understand where its a good idea but I can also see why some people wouldnt want to carry one. Im not confused about the rule, I understand it clear as day, Im just confused because I know of 2 people who have gone to Raush Creek and neither of them have a spare. Actually, they wheel there often too. Do you know if they just added that rule recently or something or is it just a strong suggestion?

This is the response that Lynn at Rausch Creek Sent me today:

"Yes and no. We have many people with buggy-type rigs, they have no
spares on the rig, they just find a way back to the parking lot to get
their spare from their truck/trailer.

For regular type wheeling vehicles, we haven't turned anyone away because
of not having a spare, as long as someone in their group has a spare that
would work if needed and are willing to share. It is also acceptable to
have a spare that is almost the correct size, as long as it works well
enough to get you out of the trails and home.

Lynn
570-640-0194"




Hope that helps.

the only problem with using a smaller spare is that you cannot use 4WD with it on there. it will tear up your axle and transfer case.

Not completley true. You could use it if your in mud or something other than really hard packed ground. It will allow your wheel to slip faster than the others until you can get off the trail. But it is risky to do so. A tire that no more than 1-2" smaller will get you off without worries though.
