Off road parks are NOT PRIVATE PROPERTY. It's open to everyone. If you advertise and have signs up and are registered with the State Of MIchigan as a business, inwhich you have to be to have a valid bank account with your business name on, the land is no longer private. If you receive money for persons to enter your premises for them to receive something in return, such as wheeling, you are considered a business. This is also the reason why all the ORV parks have to carry insurance. If your land is private property, then the land owners home owners insurance would cover any accidents. Off road parks have to carry a bigger and special insurance policy to cover the people who come to wheel. The special liability insurance also applies to any wheeling event, such as competitions held at the off road parks. The parks are allowed to hold compettions, but if these competitions are a timed event, then the park has to pay a higher insurance rate and specifically list the event name because of the "racing to get to the finish line on the competition." If a competition is NOT A TIMED EVENT, and is solely based on a points system, then the park does not need a higher insurance limit.
