    If you want a challenge, the Martinez Mine and the Cochran Coke Ovens in Pinal County, Arizona can be a pain to find. All we ask is that you stay on the trails!

    With the high cost of fuel, wouldn't it be cheaper to trailer the RV, and pull it with the ATVs?

    so far I choose Mina Nevada as one of my all time favorite places to park the RV and ride out on Atv's. campground in town is atv friendly and there is plenty of desert full of old mines and former town sites to go explore... whole town is atv friendly. you can drive your atv right up to the gas pumps at the gas station or to the local restaurant. this is good if you dont plan on roughing it much. if you really want to rough it and camp out in the middle of no where I would suggest doing some research on ghost towns in Nevada and heading out to camp in the desert!

    not really wanting to rough it maybe use somewhere as a home base to ride out of then pack up and move somewhere else for a couple days

    I would really consider Mina Nevada then. Like I said, the campground and town is atv friendly and there is miles and miles of desert and mountains to explore.

    Here is the campground info: http://www.sunrisevalley.com/

    and here are only a few of the places you will find exploring;

    Default Oregon and surrounding states

    I live in Oregon. Very interested in Ghost Towns that are ATV accessible. We have an RV and trailer so leaving from the RV on our quads to see the town would be perfect! Anyone know of any in the surrounding states?
