well that stinks. Looks like I will be getting familiar with OKC then. Assuming the movers ever come through on the Carb. I heard today that if Ichoose to replace the carb myself, I will probably not get reimbursed.

Sorry that I missed your note but I've not checked your thread in awhile. House is rented thankfully.... did you find a house?

I PCS'ed from there last in 2003 and Pig Farm was still open then. Ask around or check with the city of Lawton and see if the dirt bike and ATV area is still open at Lake Ellsworth. It was a decent area and close.

Pig Farm

The Pig Farm was across I-44 past the basic training barracks. Cross over by Key Gate, make the right after you cross the tracks and follow the around around, it will bend left and parallel Roger Lane.

pig farm and Altus AFB

found it on google earth. Looks like a cool place to ride. It's a shame that you cannot right there anymore. The lady at the New commers brief today told me that there is a place in Altus probably near the Air Force Base. I am going to research that some more.

I don't remember there being any dirtbike riding near the base itself (I left there in 2007), but there was some sort of place off of Hwy 62 over that way around Altus, yeah. Can't think of where, though.

There is also riding at Lake Murray. It is a bit farther, almost straight East, but it has camping available, which would be handy if you make a weekend of it.

Riding areas

Don't forget the CROSSBAR RANCH by Davis OK. I think it is exit 55 off of I-35. Approx 45 min north of lake murray and 1.5 hrs S. of okc. All these areas are fee areas too. Don't forget S.E. OKla. There is also Scipio near Mcalester. Scipio and Crossbar will be the most challenging as they are rocky.

Me and my DR350SET made our first ride in to work extremely early this morning. Finally got the motorcycle safety guy to bless off on my credentials. It was glorious. Had to share.

So I finally was able to confirm that the pig farm is open for ORV use. However I drove over there today and it looks scary. Seems like a dangerous layout and is not kept up. I think my first trip will be lake murray. If any of you retirees wants to ride there it is open. You gotta go to the conseration station and check in first.

Pig Farm or Bust

The Pig Farm is not the best but it's convenient. When I was there back in 93-96 I would load my bike in the truck before work and ride for an hour on the way home. The soil is hard pack and rocky, but location is hard to beat and it's still riding. The area in the trees along the creek is nice and soft although limited.

Any luck finding out if the city still has a riding area out by the lake?

Nothing in lawton, but there is a riding area out in Elgin. I am hoping to get my bike working by this weekend so I can check it out. I can not get this new carburator dialed in and I am not the greatest mechanic in the first place.

The spot in Elgin sounds like the City of Lawton's riding area. It backs up against Lake Ellsworth and you can pay by the day or get an annual sticker and it's cheap. Or at least that's how it was a few years ago.

Ok. Went to the Ellsworth riding area today. I would not call them trails because they are overgrown and seem to have no discernable pattern or reason. They do not look like the money spent to ride on them is used to maintain them. Next weekend I am going out with a machete and just clearing everything. I think it has a lot of potential. Anyone interested in riding and clearing let me know. I plan on spending a lot of time there since it is so close.

I use to take my bike when I would go out hunting on base. Quannah Range was a blast. I would just never take the most direct or smoothest route to my assigned hunting zone .

Back in the day it was called Pig Farm Crossing. Was always rough as hell, but good place to work on technical stuff. Alot of us use to meet up for breakfast at Lee's cafe(?) corner of Lee Blvd and 44 then ride the back roads on base, then up Mount Scott, thru the refuge for burgers out at Meers.

Back in 2001 there was a descent MX track (racing) SE of Lawton. Lee blvd, right (south) on 45th, about a mile back on your left. Be a good place to meet other dirt riders atleast.
