Bone Valley ATV Park
Polk County’s first ATV park boasts 200 acres of ATV and motocross trails, training areas, picnic spots, restrooms and more. It’s bad to the bone off-road family fun for the whole family!
It’s About as Tame as the Name
I remember my first trip to Bone Valley ATV Park in Mulberry. In fact, I still remember the text I sent my husband as soon as I finished the tour with my office crew. It went something like this: “We HAVE to get ATVs!”
This place is that cool, and about as tame as the name implies.
The park is owned and operated by Polk County government, and just so happens to be the county’s first ATV park. Just west of the renowned Streamsong Resort, this 200-acre tract of land has a wild, rugged landscape, carved with trails and other recreational areas.
Our tour started with the good folks at the park showing us map, which revealed 15 trails ranging in difficulty from leisurely to advanced. The advanced portion is probably where the Bone Valley name comes to life, because the leisurely trails we rode had us all acting like that little piglet, Maxwell, from the GEICO commercials. We were all yelling “Weeeeeeee!” without a care in the world.
In addition to the 15 trails, there are open riding areas, hill climbs for motocross and ATVs, training areas and picnic spots.
Park staff can assist you with information about local rental companies. Call 863-428-0525 for more information.
So Fresh and So Clean
The restrooms include showers, and they even have designated places to clean vehicles. Because after you and your recreation vehicle get all dirty, you may just want to get cleaned up and have a nice meal at a restaurant in town. Or maybe you don’t want your spouse to know that you just kicked up some dust on two or four wheels.
Play then Stay: Plans for the Future
Future plans include acquiring more property and adding a campground. Until then, visitors can camp at Lake Arbuckle Park and Campground in Frostproof. If you’re more of the hotel type, Streamsong Resort will be the closest property. The address is 10427 County Road 630 W. in Mulberry.
