All of them at some point yes. But if you had to pick one. Which one and why. And we will likely be camping (well in motorhomes some don't consider that camping)

I love twisted trails. Big variety, huge fields you can go fast on, plenty of trails. Plus if you go for a weekend you could go check out traverse city or sleeping bear dunes. All within an hour of there. Rocks and valleys is cool, not my first choice though. Couldn't wheel there more than a day and there isn't much going on around Harrison for a weekend of fun.

I would do the badlands, because I have never been. You could hit rv on sat and twisted on Sunday, if you planned it. Don't forget Bundy hill.

Every place has something going for it that the others don't, they are all fun.

We have been to The Badlands, RnV, and Bundy. Of those Badlands is by far our favorite. It has sand hills, mud, wooded trails, and rock crawling. You can even do some creek running. It is on old quarry so it has ledges and waterfall type formations as opposed to large boulders tossed around randomly.
Next would be RnV. It's a very fun park with a variety of different wheeling terrain. I would have to respectfully disagree with an earlier post. If you like two tracking Harrison is a great place to stay. You couldn't go wrong with a day at RnV and a trail run up to St. Helens, be sure to hit the Motosports Area.

I'm coordinating a small trip to the Badlands in May for a weekend. One day on the public side and one day on the private side with guides. Should be May 23, but waiting for confirmation. Not sure if that works with your schedule.
