OHV Park

Morrow-Grant County OHV Park is part of the Morrow County Parks system. That is approximately 9,000 acres with 2,000 acres belong to Grant County. This encompasses a portion of the recreational trail system which Morrow County manages with a Memorandum of Understanding between the two counties. Morrow County owns and manages the remaining trail system as well as the campground.

This park is would not have been possible without the public support from Morrow and Grant County,  funding assistance from Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) and thousands of generously donated voluneer hours.  THANK YOU!

With the development of the park partner and relation-ships have been created with local businesses, volunteers, park guests and organizations such as; Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB), United States National Forest Service (USFS). It is our hopes that we can continue to forge forward with these groups and continue to provide a place that everyone can enjoy now and in the future.

Things to do and see

This park offers camping with a variety of amenities.  Trails for All Terrain Vehicles (ATV), hiking, and biking vary in difficulty levels from easy/beginner to difficult/expert. Horseshoe pits, golf driving range, playground and fishing ponds provide additional recreation while in the area.Wildlife from large and small game to a vast variety of birds native to the area are in abundance throughout the area. The Rolling Hills Hunting Preserve offers a large variety of bird hunting packages and is locally owned and operated.
