In case you aren't aware, riding in the spillway is illegal. Doing so anyway gives our sport a "black eye" so you probably won't get many responses from responsible off-roaders. Instead, try to hook up with the other locals and join the organized trail rides to get it out of your system... and the trail rides are 100x more fun than slinging mud in the spillway and won't put you at risk of fines and vehicular impounds.

Not trying to fuss at you, just hoping a friendly poke in the right direction can help you out a bit.

It's 10:00a - 4:00p... we'll be out there all day. Come on the early end of it if you want to pretend you're going to beat the heat, but bottom line is, the temperature is gonna suck sweaty balls. They'll have $5 cups you can buy with unlimited refills, though, so don't worry about being thirsty!

Ok. Not trying to argue here but, exactly what is illegal in the spillway. I have been going there for years to work/play with my dogs and there are always people fishing out there on weekends. It seems they have any roads that they don't want you to access closed off. It is really not a good place to off road but it is a great place to bring your dogs to retrive and swim after a good rain when some of the smaller ponds have fresh water in them. Anyway, just wondering. What is legal/illegal?

I was wondering the same thing. The last time I was out there I saw people all over the place, fishing, hanging out and even a few trucks driving around with nothing better to do.
I even drove right past a ranger and he just waved. And I had mud everywhere.

I don't suppose we'll have an answer to that.

I don't think it's illegal to ride in the spillway bc my uncle lives close to it and he's always riding his 4-wheeler out there
