Last Saturday a group of 15 of us met at Disney, OK for the day. If you're ever in the neighborhood hit us up for some wheeling :)

The Little Blue Area at Grand Lake State Park is centrally located between Tulsa (65 miles), Joplin (67 miles) and Rogers (63 miles), which lets you get away without wandering too far from home.
Nearby entertainment includes Hogan's Off Road Park, which is located right beside the neighboring dam spillway. The park gives off-roaders easy access to the range with about five square miles of trails and rock structures for rock crawlers.
Here's a few videos:

This looks like a really great place. Must put it on my list of places to plan on. Northwest Arkansas has some good places too. Might make a loop trip starting in Hot Springs. Good video for sure.

Excuse my ignorance but is this an ORV park, state land or what? After looking a bit deeper I think this might be the place my son ran his Ultra4 buggy some time back and it was state land. Looks like a place we could spend some time.

Right now it's GRDA
The Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) is a non-profit Oklahoma agency created to control, develop, and maintain the Grand River waterway.

Been talk for years about "pay to play" but for now it remains free.
Every year they host John Sumner's Big Meat Run https://www.360grandlake.com/Annual-Events/John-Sumners-Big-Meat-Run.html
It's the nicest we have close to Tulsa, once into MO and AR there are nicer spots though.

I have a stock '17 Rubicon, trailed rated. Disney is on my list, but I'm not sure if a winch or other upgrades would be necessary to do it.
We had a stock Sahara and a stock Rubi on the last trip. You'll be fine :) There will be stuff you can't do but 90% you'll be OK. Always better to have people there with you.
