Recreation Areas & Facilities

The land within Hungry Valley SVRA has an extensive network of trails that provides a balance of recreational challenges and opportunities to view wildlife in a scenic environment.   Day use parking is allowed at one of nine campgrounds located along Hungry Valley Road and Gold Hill Road with access to more than 130 miles of designated trails.

ATV Safety Classes

Hungry Valley SVRA offers ATV safety classes for kids ages 6 - 17. Students practice basic safety techniques with hands-on exercises that cover starting and stopping, turning, negotiating hills, emergency stopping and swerving, and riding over obstacles. Particular emphasis is placed on safe OHV operation and maintaining vehicle control. The course offers students an opportunity to increase their awareness of the environment and to practice basic riding skills in a controlled environment under the direct supervision of a licensed instructor.

Open Use / Camping Area

More than 4,000 acres of open use area is located in the main valley on either side of Gold Hill Road and along Hungry Valley Road. This area contains a mix of designated trails and unmarked trails that traverse a variety of terrain from sand washes, to rolling hills, to hill climbs.

Hungry Valley has approximately 200 campsites throughout the park. Located adjacent to Gold Hill Road and Hungry Valley Road are ten semi-developed campgrounds which provide shade ramadas, picnic tables, fire rings, vault restrooms, and trash cans. (See Open Use / Camping Area for more information.) Smith Forks campground also provides a mini track for young riders to recreate under the watchful eye of their parents.  Due to the arid environment, drinking water is not available anywhere in the park.

Trails Use Only and Native Grasslands Area

Large areas of the park are traversed by a system of well-marked trails.  In both the trail use only area and the Native Grasslands Management Area, motorized recreation is allowed only on designated trails. These trails are marked on the park map and are evident by signs and trail markers.
