Rosland OHV Play Area


Rosland OHVThe Rosland Play Area consists of 3.5 miles of loop trails on a wooded flat, a learners' loop, a beginner play area and an advanced play area. The play areas have large mounds of sandy soil providing great jumping opportunities. The play area is an excellent spot for young riders to become familiar with their OHVs in the open beginner play area and on the short loop trails. The area is wooded and offers a great view of Paulina Peak.

Only spotters and riders are allowed in the play areas so several picnic tables are placed at shaded locations to provide easy observation. There is ample parking for both pits and easy access for vehicles towing trailers.

The trails and play areas are designed for Class I (Quads, 3-wheelers less than 50" wide and 800 pounds) and Class III (motorcycles). Riders should not use parking areas for play areas. Trails are two-way so please ride courteously.

These trails and facilities are operated and maintained for your enjoyment by Central Oregon Combined OHV Operations (a Forest Service, & Bureau of Land Management Cooperative agreement), Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation ATV Funds, support from various user groups and many other volunteers,h6/>

OHV Camping

The parking areas at Rosland Recreation Site are large enough to accommodate large motor homes, fifth wheels and groups.  Camping is allowed in the parking areas but not in the riding areas. There is one vault toilet.   

  • Water: The staging areas are primitive with no water
  • Garbage: There is no garbage collection so, please PACK IT OUT!
  • Access to the staging areas is located along a pave road, so motor homes and fifth wheels have very easy access.
