River Valley OHV Park - Pottawattamie County
  • Park Status: PARK CLOSED
  • Reason:Trail Hazards
  • Details: River Valley will remain closed while the Iowa Department of Natural Resources conducts a thorough review of the area to determine safe recreational activities that best fit the landscape on the Missouri River floodplain, given the area’s history of flooding and tree damage. In recent years the public area has sustained continued and extensive damage to its trees, OHV trails and levy from flooding and fire. The DNR understands that River Valley’s location next to a large population center makes it a valuable outdoor resource for the area. With that said, public safety is the top priority, and the DNR will work with local partners to determine future recreational activities that can be conducted in a safe manner.
