Have you checked out Kansas Rocks, I live in Lenexa and know some people who go down there quite a bit.

Kansas Rocks would probably be the closest. There is also Tuttle Creek, out by Manhattan.

Yeah, Kansas Rocks will probably be closer to you. Tuttle Creek ORV Park near Randolf is a good alternative as well, if you're willing to drive a little further. I haven't been to KR, but TC is a great place to wheel. There are trails for everyone, from very mild to very wild.

Kansas Rocks is private property and you have to pay to get in. I think the fee is $10 a day or $50 for the year. You can check out their website, ksrockspark.com.

As for Tuttle Creek, the GPS coordinates I have are, GPS: 39.409994, -96.738950‎ (39°24'35.98" N 96°44'20.22" W). I'm not going to guarantee those are correct, but the actual name of the place is Tuttle Creek Lake. So, if you goggle Tuttle Creek Lake, you can get the address and contact info for the visitor's center.

Tuttle Creek ORV Park is free. Pack out what you pack in, be courteous to others, wheel responsibly, and it'll remain free. Have fun and take plenty of pics!!

Just got this forum, been using the JK forum forever, but this let's you go local which is awesome. Anybody going wheeling for labor day weekend? I went last weekend to KR but had to be pulled out by another rig because I destroyed my battery some how. New battery in now and it runs great.
