Some Rules

Off-Road Vehicle Restrictions

MERUS Adventure™ Park is open to full-sized vehicles that meet our restrictions. Open to all brands and models of full-size vehicles. Stock and modified vehicles are welcome at the park but there are a few restrictions that do apply:

43" Max Tire Size Restriction

Taken From manufacturer’s size guide on the tire. We had to draw the line somewhere. High horsepower, large tire vehicles easily destroy the land and can create 3-foot ruts that cause extreme erosion in the canyon.

Custom-Built Vehicles Must Have a Firewall.

Buggies and custom-built full-size vehicles are allowed in the park, however, they MUST have a firewall. This is for safety reasons and the protection of drivers and passengers.

All Vehicles Must Be Insured

We understand that insurance may not cover you if you roll or damage your own vehicle, that’s not why we require it. We require it in the event you damage someone else’s vehicle whether in the parking lot, on a park road, or on the trails.

Vehicles Must Have an Exhaust within reasonable loudness

We get it, it’s subjective. However, you know when you have a loud vehicle and nobody wants to hear you from across the canyon. No open headers, straight pipe, or glass packs. This park is for the enjoyment of all who come here.

No Side x Sides

No ATV's

No Motorcycles

know Before You Show

GMRS Radio

We require every vehicle to have a GMRS radio. We do rent them for $7/day if needed.

Fire Extinguisher

We require every vehicle in the park to have a fire extinguisher on board. We sell them for $30 if you need one.

Recovery Gear

Be sure to have all the appropriate recovery gear you may need. A winch, tow rope, and soft shackles are strongly encouraged.

Fuel Up

Make sure your vehicle is full of fuel and if you are staying multiple days it's always a good idea to bring extra!


Everyone (including children) in your vehicle must have a waiver signed prior to the start of the tour.

We have been camping and off roading at Merus several times. Each time is new adventure. Whether we tent camp, stay at the cabin, come alone, or join one of the social events we have the best time. The best membership we have.
