I thought I'd put my 2 cents in, I was very happy with the challenges that R&V had to offer, and they aren't done so it'll just get better. It had a great variety of difficulty and terrain. Honesly I really couldn't believe that it was that good here in the LP of MI.

Keep up the good work Ron & crew, I'll be back a few times this summer for sure since you're basically in my back yard......I've always said I wanted a park close enough for a day trip (and the mounds doesn't count because it sucks!) for something to do and you guys certainly delivered on that. THANK YOU

From myself, Ron, Jeff, and all the rangers at R&V, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who came up and wheeled. I met alot of great ppl, wheeled the piss out of my new project, and watched alot of ppl having a good time. We've heard nothing but positive remarks about our park, and just wanted to say thank you to everyone. All of us have put in alot of time, and effort to make this happen, and it was great to see so many ppl turn out and play. Hope to see everyone soon, and stop and say hi.

GREAT TIME HAD BY ME AND MY PASSENGERS!

I'm from SW MI and haven't had that many spots to go to. With that being said, this is one of the best parks I've been to in this area (Mid West States). I was there Saturday, and never really had a chance to get to the gravel pit....but we hammered every other part. The challenges were great, and I never really felt like I was in trouble. A perfect amount of rocks, water, hills, and entire Jeeps. Never really got bored. I was concerned that we were coming in with a group of 1, however, I found everyone to be very helpful, and overly nice. This especially applies to Ron and his crew.

BIG Kudos from us.

Thank you for the passenger policy. I had my girlfriend and her son (1st timers) and they were amazed at what a Jeep on 35's could do...compared to her stocker ;-) Probably some of the best $20 that I've spent!

I hate to admit it....but we had so much fun wheeling, that I never really had a chance to get to know anybody....that part I regret.

I have the Green Jeep, with pretty much everything blacked out. It is on 35's Coopers with Black Steelies and a Full Traction LA lift. Highlift mounted across the top of the back tire carrier.





We have a BUNCH of pictures, and a lot of the Mud Bogging by the Green Willies and Red Chevy too.....man, you two are close to certifiable ;-) I'll just have to get them uploaded and posted.


We'll be back....and we'll also try to get in on some of the events going on in this forum.

THANKS!

Not only is the park turning into a great 4x4 destination it also offers pretty nice rustic camping. Which I will be doing again the next time we visit.

here is a pic of our group camping spot

It was a great time camping, wheeling, and spending times with friends... The park is off to an excellent start and I'm sure it will continue to create more challenges for all... I'm also certain that we will be back to spend a weekend...

I never did get a booster to work but managed to do all the obstacles with a spongy pedal. The YJ booster was the only one that would hold vacum but it wouln't bolt up, might modify it though, thanks!

Notice you said Scotty was by himself, not "Scotty and his wife".

We would like to thank everyone for a great time and some really great food. What a great place to spend a weekend. We want to wish Rock & Valleys the very best. It was great to be part of the grand opening. If we can do anything to help out, we are more than willing. A special thank you goes out to Ron Price and all the ranges and crew, What a great group!!!
This was the first time I got to ride with a police {RANGER} type group. That I wasn't in the back seat with handcuffs on, and they brought me back to my rig and wife in a matter of hours. And yes, I had a good time at the bonfire both nights.
We are looking forward to are return. This a great place to take your family, always something going on.

Had a great time this weekend. Only got out on the trails once since I was cooking and running home to take care of the dogs. Did meet some really nice people though. Hopefully next weekend I can get out on the trails more. (in between cooking!) Thanks to everyone who came out and made it a great grand opening for the park!! Hope to see everyone again soon

We had an absolute blast. Our congratulations to Jeff, Ron, Dale, Eric and everyone else that made for such an awesome grand opening. The open comraderie amongst everyone in the park regardless of where they were from or what they where wheeling was fantastic. For a first time event, everything was well organized and well thought out and it showed.

Can't wait until our next trip up. Many unexplored trails still
