Rules to follow

MAIN RULES OF THE PARK

EVERYONE must sign the waiver upon arrival:  if later than 11pm please call and let us know.

Helmets must be worn at all times on machines that require.

NO UNRULY BEHAVIOR. 

NO SPEEDING through the campground and motel area of the property.

NO FIREWORKS at any time.

NO SUBWOOFERS at ANY time. We love our music and you should too but not everyone has to hear that bass. 

NO IDLING around the house, motel and campsites.

AFTERMARKET EXHUASTS are stupid anyways so if you have your original put it on, IF your exhaust is loud we do not need you reving in our campground and near our motel. We don't think your cool, and neither does everyone else. 

ABSOLUTELY NO DRIVING in any of the ponds around our campground or on any grassy areas that clearly don't have tire tracks. You have an entire trail system to play around in.

This is also our home, we have very young kids so we ask that you refrain from knocking on the front door of our house unless an emergency. Please ring bell at office or call number on the door. 

How is garbage and recycling handled here?

Firstly, do not mix recycables (paper, plastic, cans, bottles) with garbage. Blue boxes are provided in the rooms to house recycling, along with clear bags (which are required here in Minden) that are available in the office for you to use. FOR FREE! SO USE THEM!

When and what is 'quiet hour'?

Be respectful to those around you. Quiet hour is by definition, the hour where all loud activities must end. As of 2020, the start and end times have moved to 24 hours by the municipality, and failure to comply will result in consequences. This includes but is not limited to, music playing through speakers at a high volume and driving your off-road-vehicle throughout the accommodations areas of the property. Use your head.

Minden Off-Road is pet friendly, however there are some rules which are enforced throughout the property:

  1. Pets must be leashed at all times when not in the room, regardless of how friendly and trained. 
  2. No pets are allowed on any of the furniture on the property.
  3. All pets must be caged if not taken with you while riding. This is to ensure no damage occurs to the rooms while you're out. Any damages will be the responsibility of the owner and charges will apply.
  4. Always "poop and scoop" after your pet. There is a garbage bin at the edge of the property that you may use for it, please donnot leave in room.

OUR TRAILS

Tracks, tires or skis; all are welcome to attempt our trails! 

They aren't for the faint of heart, some vehicles may occur body damage, some don't. 

The trails change daily and are groomed regularly.

There is zero tolerance for the cutting of any trees on trail system or campground. Our trails were made professionally which includes the placement of trees, removal of these trees will damage the trail system. On the same note, please donnot make your own trail, stay on marked trails.

Not recommended for dirt bikes due to the terrain and 4X4 use but you are more than welcome to give 'er a try!

Motel

Yes, ALL of our rooms have washrooms and AC! 

Please view the Accommodations and Attractions tab to see more.

 

As mentioned in the Trails and Off-Roading section our trails are more on the difficult side. We currently do not have a kids quadding area. With the many families around the park, pool and playground we ask for no continuous driving around the park. 

 

As for adults on dirtbikes, you are welcome to try, depending on your skill and type of bike you are riding will determine the distance traveled. There is plenty of riding spots down the road and on most of the HATVA trails. Check out the OFTR (oftr.ca) for passes and maps best suited for dirtbikes.

In the event of an emergency (wildfire, flooding, etc), please notify the leader of your group and the owner of Minden Off-Road immediately. Furthermore, call 911 first where appropriate!

Do not block any roadways on the property, to ensure emergency vehicles can access the area when needed.

In the case of power failure, flooding or gaseous odour, notify the owner immediately. In the event that owner is unreachable, please contact other Minden Off-Road staff. Describe and identify the location of the problem.
