We are Located Right On The Trail!

Rivers Edge Campground is just a mile north of the Barron County - Washburn County border which both offer a lot of trails for ATV/UTV enthusiasts.

Washburn County Trails

Washburn County manages 103 miles of ATV trails, primarily on our county forest lands.  The Wild River Trail, an abandoned railroad corridor running north and south through the county, is the backbone if the trail system.  The County maintains numerous addition trail segments connecting various communities in the area.  These trails are open for ATV and UTV use with minor segments shared with other vehicles.  Please note that motorcycles and dirt bikes are not permitted on our trails. We are currently looking at other potential trails throughout the County.  Please note that with the exception of the Wild River Trail, ATV use is not permitted anywhere on the County Forest between April 1 through the first Friday before Memorial Weekend. All ATV use is prohibited at any time that DNR fire danger is listed at very high or higher.  Please tread lightly and stay on trails. Our trails are maintained primarily by volunteers. Want to get involved? Contact us for information about joining an ATV Club.
