As of March 1st, the daily off-road vehicle trail-use fee at Interlake and Redbird state recreation areas will increase to $15 from $10.

This is the first fee increase for daily ORV trail use in 12 years. The increase will help cover the cost of newly extended hours.

The DNR has announced that Interlake and Redbird are now open seven days a week, from sunrise to sunset. Visitors can spend more time on the nearly 125 miles of trails and skills areas at the two properties.

Redbird State Recreation Area is located near Linton in Dugger, IN.

Redbird and Interlake are the only state-owned properties where ORV recreation is allowed.

Property managers also will use increased revenue on maintenance and improvements. The fee is charged per ORV.

This includes dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles, side-by-sides, four-wheel-drive trucks and sport-utility vehicles.
There are no fees for passengers. Despite the increase, the fee is still less than or comparable to all privately owned off-roading properties in the state.

Frequent visitors can still purchase an annual ORV trail-use permit for 2017 for $75. The annual permit can be used for unlimited trail use in 2017 at both Interlake and Redbird.
