We DO NOT offer solo day passes for off-roading. To off-road/overland, you must have a camping (tent, RV, cabin, etc.) reservation. If you do not wish to camp, we encourage you to view our group packages for options regarding single-day access to the park.

Another great day of off-roading at Merus yesterday. New Gladiator nailed it.

Greens and blues are super fun. Can't testify about black trails 😆. Green is fine for stock Wrangler 4x4, as is some of the blue. Rental radios aren't so great. Very friendly staff.

What a great time. The owner & employees go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful experience. The rain made it a little messy and couldn’t get back to our camp, so went to a hotel for one night till the drop in dried a little. All & All a great experience!!

You can be there for a full weekend and still not do all the trails. The camp sites are awesome. The trails are fun and starting to get better about being marked. We missed out on being able to do a few trails cause they were incorrectly marked and we didn't know it till we were leaving. The views are amazing. And it's a good place for all experience levels

What a beautiful place!!! The off roading is the best I have ever done. The views are spectacular. The service is the best in the world. It is a 14 hour drive for me to get there, and I will make that drive again and again. I just love that place!

Just got back from one of the most amazing trips to Merus ever! Highly recommend going here to do anything from camping, to hiking, caving, and of course miles and miles of off-roading. Friendly employees, cabins, overlanding friendly, camping, and so much more! Go to Merus, trust me, you'll love it!

Recently attended a E3 Off-Road event at Merus. Fantastic experience. Tremendous views and tons of potential to this new park. Great trail guides, friendly staff, and a variety of activities for different outdoor enthusiasts. Can’t wait to see where the team takes this park in the future!
