I've been to Bundy hill, it's about an hour and a half west. There isn't very much mud, and you can avoid any difficult obstacles. It is well maintained, and their staff is very helpful. I had a blast when I went, and I highly recommend it.

I am not a huge fan of offroad parks. I went to Bundy Hill recently and wasnt real impressed (however, to each their own). I prefer trail riding, for that you will have to travel over to at least the Muskegon area. If not a little further north.

Im in the metro detroit area as well, my profile picture is at the mounds, and yes its a mud pit. Only fun for a jeep you dont care about, bundy hill is more organized and better for tactical jeep driving. Both are an hour away in the opposite directions. I have more pics of the mounds if youd like to see.

The DNR has trail guides available. The closest are probably near West Branch in the Huron National Forest area. I haven't been there, but go on line and look for the "What Lies Beyond" Jeep club. They 're in the Metamora/Flint area and have trail rides there.
