River Valley OHV Park - Pottawattamie County
  • Park Status: PARK CLOSED
  • Reason:Major construction project
  • Details: The OHV park will remain closed until further notice, and at a minimum all of calendar year 2020. Following the fire, several flooding events have occurred which delayed addressing the hazards. Cleanup work can only take place between November and March due to the Indiana Bat being present in the area. This, coupled with the weather conditions, has created a challenge for the DNR to find a time for potential contractors to evaluate the area on-site in safe conditions and form a plan of removal of the debris. The park has signage posted and all use of the park is restricted. Any violators will be charged with trespassing.

Tama County OHV Park - Tama County
  • Park Status: PARK CLOSED
  • Reason:Trail Hazards
  • Details: Thanks to El Derecho, the park will be closed for a while. The trails are covered with tree debris and the City is using the parking lot as a holding place for the massive quantity of trees and tree limbs which they need to take care of. The priority at this time is collection and removal from homes and city property. There is no access to the park at this time. Please stay away from the area so that the city can get their work done and you remain safe. Riding at the park will be considered trespassing as the park is officially closed, but most importantly we want you to stay safe. Please check this alert page for updates, but it will not be a quick reopen.
