Download the print and GPS trail maps at - https://rl4wd.com/directory/businesses/on-trail/campsinawa

Earlybird registration is only $45 per rig (not per person) for the weekend or day of riding and it helps us build more trails and signs to keep things growing in Wisconsin!

Please save your receipt as your entry ticket.

*** On-site registration is $75 per rig. Save the hassle and register early!!!

This event is rain or shine.

*** Friendly dogs on leashes are welcome!*** Be sure your dog is not barking if they are left in a cabin or during sleeping times.

Rig fee does not include food, drinks or lodging/camping.

To rent a cabin or camping spot, please contact Sarah Nelson, the Camp Sinawa Ranger at - (920) 827-6811.

Required Items: Fire extinguisher, tow rope and tree saver (no metal hooks), cb (channel 16) or 2M HAM radio.

Event fees go towards permits, insurance, site fees and to pay for more trail development. Some of this is offset in the membership fees which is why these events aren't $200-$900 per vehicle or more like some promoters charge. Be sure to bring warm clothing, fire starters, food, drinks, etc.

Some love to grill out and make food, others like to go into town and sit down to dinner.

Itinerary: Friday night will include a social hour around the campfire. Social distancing guidelines will need to be followed. A night ride is not anticipated, we'd rather spend time talking about riding and trail safety in a social and relaxed environment. 

Saturday - We'll meet in the parking lot area. Look for all the rigs.

 

Check-in - 8:30am - 9:30am 10am - 10pm Split into small groups (stock to stacked or by experience) and enjoy trail riding! Groups can stop at any time for breaks and to eat either on the trail or in the dorm. The fire pit by the lodge will be lit in the late afternoon.

Some groups will head to The Smiling Moose (RL4WD business member!!!) http://smilingmoosesaloonandgrill.com/, Meats (St. Nazianz) https://www.facebook.com/meatsoperahaus/ some may hit Dizzy's in Valders https://www.facebook.com/dizzyspub/ for dinner or just camp out and eat on site. We'll grill over the fire and enjoy otherwise.

If you plan on doing the night rides, do not drink alcohol. We have a strict no drinking and riding policy. Groups will need at least one Trail Ambassador or an approved experienced rider who's been at the location before with their group before being allowed on the trails.

Your rig must be in 4 low the entire time you're on the trails (5mph or less). Stay on the trails. Watch for one way trail signs. Download the trail map or grab the printed maps on site.

The beach will not be open. Do not go down by the boathouse.

We'll have an air station on-site to fill tires and a power washer to clean your vehicle (prevents the spread of invasive species) for use at no cost and we'll bring it down to the clear sky camp Saturday.

We're here to relax, ride, have fun, and enjoy each other's company. Feel free to bring lawn games, kids, dogs etc. Do not leave the fire pits unattended ever.

Again, no drinking and riding. Ever. If you have a stock vehicle, make sure it has tow points on the front and rear. Stock rig will have a hard time on some of these trails and if it's muddy, we will not likely run the big hill trails for your safety.

Bring valid proof of vehicle insurance. It will be checked. The vehicle must be licensed with valid registration. Please fill out the rig form and waiver, print it and bring it along here - https://rl4wd.com/trails/waiver If there are any questions, please let us know below!

Social Distancing will be observed. If you're sick, please stay home, you'll be refunded.

Volunteering as a Trail Ambassador helps us keep and expand 4x4 trails and riding opportunities. This Trail Ambassador class involves a morning classroom session and afternoon hands-on skills session. There isn’t a written test in this class. Trail Ambassadors are needed to report trail conditions, help people out on the trails, and to host small rides at our private and public trail areas.

The morning class will be in the lodge. 

Saturday afternoon hands-on training after lunch. 

Sunday, we can do additional training for those who stay at the camp. 

Please RSVP your cabin, RV, or tent space with Ranger Sarah 920-827-6811 if you would like a heated cabin or RV/Tent space. Right now, they have a group in the dorm that weekend and a few cabins rented but mostly open if you want to use something. 

Ticket fees are for the background check, Trail Ambassador integration, membership card reprint with TGA info, TGA vests, TGA page, and future RL4WD discounted memberships. You’ll get a 2-year extension on your RL4WD membership ($100+ dollar value). Our aim is to give you more value than the cost of the class. 

For the background checks, we look for things like recent violent crimes, sexual misconduct, OWI’s/DWI’s etc. We understand people have a past and that things done in your youth don’t represent who you are now many years later. If you want to talk about something in your background check, please feel free to contact Ryan Harden before paying for this event. 

This class certifies you as a Division 2 RL4WD Trail Ambassador through our https://trailambassador.com/ program here at the office. We are a recognized group within the WI DNR, DOT, Tourism, along with many other local, state, and federal agencies. 

Cost: $75 per person

Pre-Registration: Coming Soon

Items you need: 

Your Rig in good working order according to: https://rl4wd.com/event/rigchecklist

First Aid Kit

Tow Strap

We're hosting a 4X4 Back The Blue parade to support our officers, first responders, and firefighters who protect our communities day in and day out. We'll be lining up at Camp Sinawa from 8am to 10am. Decorate your rig in red white and blue along with any Back The Blue swag you can find. We're trying to get the Manitowoc Country Sheriffs Department squads there.

We'll have 3 donations for this parade. If you can't make the parade, but want to support it, please donate at https://rl4wd.com/donation. Thank you!!!

1 - We'll be donating to the Manitowoc County Sheriff K-9 unit as it's in dire need right now.
2 - We'll have a Firefighters boot out to raise money for the local St Nazianz Fire Department
BOTH of these organizations respond to our 4x4 events if we need them at Camp Sinawa rides.
3 - As you may know, the need for non-perishable food items at food banks is at an all-time high. Our parade route goes by United Ministries who runs 3 food banks in Southeast Wisconsin. We'll off-road here and drop off monetary donations along with bags of non-perishable food items.

Parade Contest -
We'll be awarding the best-dressed rigs in the parade. Winners will be announced in the parking lot of the Camp Sinawa parking lot following the route.

Parade Rules -
All vehicles must obey all street signs and right of ways. We'll try to have Firefighters and Trail Ambassadors at intersections if needed. We'll announce the parade to the Pigeon Lake and St. Nazianz communities. Bring candy and such at your own risk and do NOT litter. No fireworks, smoke, or pyrotechnics will be allowed.

The USA flag MUST BE THE TALLEST THING IN THE PARADE. If you fly other flags, the main USA flag must be higher than any other object. You can bring speakers and PA systems but music puts be patriotic and family appropriate. Please space out sound systems and face speakers towards the ditches and not front to back.

Have your Ham Radio on 146.460, GMRS on Channel 4 (so people can use the cheap handhelds) and CB's on channel 16. Have radio in your rig for important parade information.

Post Parade - Groups may go out on the overlanding routes.

We’d like to thank all our members who are dedicated to reviewing trails, parks, and businesses. It greatly helps folks decide if they want to visit a trail, park, or business in future trips!
No purchase necessary to win! Available to free and Premium Members. Void where prohibited. Winners pay for shipping or pick up at our office.
You can review trails more than once. Please date-stamp your images with something like Solocator https://apps.apple.com/us/app/solocator-gps-field-camera/id582584117 / https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.solocator&hl=en_US. Members who are caught reviewing something without actually being there will be excluded from the drawings. We prefer to see at least one image with each review if possible.

We appreciate longer reviews, ones that speak of the adventure of that listing. It’s ok to be honest, some of these listings are just gravel roads and they aren’t much to look at. We want to know your thoughts, even if they aren’t great! What’s important here is that you went out there and are telling us your honest thoughts.

We use this data to tell land managers what type of trails we want. Together, we are building reputable data that’s irrefutable. Hard data like this can be used in many ways, but if you don’t write the review, we can’t us it!

Due to the Corona virus, our annual meeting in Stevens Point has been moved from April to roughly Dec 4th-6th once we confirm with the hotel. 


 


Below is the outdated info from the physical meeting. 


 https://www.eventbrite.com/e/89638299567/ Our annual meeting will  be at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. It will be part of the first-ever joint motorsports convention of Wisconsin where we as a motorized community can work together to build relationships, trails, and networking. 


The event details are still forming, but we'll have vendors in the main halls, the Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association doing their annual meeting, RL4WDA doing our meetings and then some joint workshops and social times. 


We try and provide not only our annual member's meeting & board/finance meetings but also the Trail Guide Ambassador meeting awards banquet and more. 


The idea is to host sessions where all of us can work together on action plans, meet one another, then break out into our respective sessions and meetings.   


Tim from WOHVA and Luana from WI4X4 were also receptive to this idea, but it's not likely they will bring their own meetings to the same place (we do have room for them though). Something like this hasn't been attempted from our side or WATVA before, and we may even see the Wisconsin Off-Highway Motorcycle Assoc. there as well. Here was the 2019 motorized panel we were on, this was the first stage of this concept. https://www.facebook.com/watva/videos/vl.312752236075690/412486859312381. We also had folks from the MN4x4 there, though it was in a different capacity. 


Being able to work together as the 4x4 recreation and as motorized recreation as a whole is something we're going to try at this meeting. 


The location has ample parking, things for the kids to do, local restaurants within walking distance and more. Special room rates will be announced soon, the ink was just signed on the booking yesterday by WATVA. Please mark your calendars for this event and join us in helping build more trails, more clubs, more ambassadors, and keep this growth going the right way. 


We always have folks from the DNR, DOT, Tourism and more, many do presentations in the breakout sessions over the weekend. 


More to come as it develops. If this is a success, we'll make this a yearly meeting for the upper midwest.
