Southern ATV Clubs: Louisiana Edition

Come on down to the bayou and find out how to do it in the Cajun Country. Louisiana has some of the best ATV groups in the South. I have listed a few that had information on their web site and broke it down. If you are in Louisiana, check out these fun-and mud-lovin’ clubs.

Louisiana Off-Road Vehicle Association (www.lorva.org) is the state wide association that is formed to protect the recreation of off-roading in the state of Louisiana. This is not a club but a state organization to help conserve the sport of off-road trail riding. Joining LORVA will increase the power of like-minded individuals in the state.

South Louisiana Trail Blazers (www.sltrailblazers.com) was formed in 1998 but it is the fastest growing off-road organization in the state. The Blazers are passionate about their hobby! They have joined with the Army Corps Of Engineers-New Orleans District to form an ATV off-road park at the Bonnet Carre’ Spillway. Their website address is www.mvn.usace.army.mil/recreation/Recreation_Sites_Bonnet_Carre.asp. When they are not busy on the trails, they also get heavily involved politically, which is very important to the future of ATVs and off-road trails. If you would like to learn more about this bunch, check them out on the web or e-mail the New Members Contact at: lilcajunmudder1@cox.net.

Balls-Deep-ATV (www.balls-deep-atv.com) (Hey, folks! I don’t pick the names, I just write about 'em!!) is a new club that was started in 2005 and is based in the Shreveport/Bossier City area. They attend most mud events in Louisiana and East Texas. Judging by their pictures, THEY LOVE MUD. They are looking for new members that enjoy a family-type club to join. For more information contact Balls-Deep by email: ballsdeepatv@yahoo.com.

Climb ATV Club, Inc. (www.climbatv.com) Climb ATV Club, Inc. is a family-oriented group based in West Monroe, La. They have quarterly organized club rides and enjoy splashing the mud or hitting the trails on the weekends. This group has a primary goal of promoting the recreation of ATV riding. So help them promote ATVs and check them out on the web or email CrawDaddy at crawdaddy500ho@bellsouth.net.

While ATV clubs are a good way to get involved it may be a good idea to contact the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council’s (NOHVCC) state representative for more information on how to start a local club, or even to find more clubs that may already be going in your local area without you being aware of it. The state representative for Louisiana is James Barrett. Barrett can be reached by calling 985-851-5356 or email him at jbarrett@mlind.net.

Louisiana has some of the best places to hit the trails or sling a little mud with a group from your area. If I did not include your group, then submit your club here to add your group to their club list. ATV Source is one of the best ways to publicize your group or organization.
