Bayview is pretty small, you can ride it all in less than a half hour. A few water holes, and a small hill or two.

There have been many problems wtih riders not respecting the boundaries, the place has been threatened with closure a few times because of this.

Atv Traction Mercer has "adopted" Bayview, they do cleanup and other duties to help keep it going.

Been ther plenty of times, and now it is only 5 minutes away from work for me. It is pretty small but you can play around there and kill 3-4 hours exploring. You can check out some pics and a map of the place here:

I drove by over the weekend. Been thinking of checking it out. does it get very busy? Looks like it would be good for kids and new riders. It's about an hour-hour and a half from me, is it worth the drive?

Stickers should be in stock around the start of 2014. Anyone who has stickers ordered will get them as soon as we get them in. Thanks for your patience.
