Managed v.s. Unmanaged Use
For decades, this area was open to unrestricted OHV use with no rules or ethics.
Now, the Prison Hill OHV Recreation Site is open to use on designated routes and areas only.
There is now a delineated staging area with a great kiosk, accessible toilet, parking area, tot lot, and beginner area. Signing, barriers, and facilities are simple but effective. The site now has the look and feel of being managed; family use has increased, and visitors respect the site.
Those charged with implementing State and Federal grant programs like to see their dollars at work on the ground, but more importantly, they like to see results. Implementing the 4Es through simple things like signing, mapping, a kiosk, a toilet, and delineators to control and direct the use help set expectations for your visitors. Those expectations can alter use patterns and ethics and can start changing a site from Unmanaged to Managed. Funding sources like success stories and RecConnect excels in creating success stories.
With our experience, vision, and creativity, we craft:
GREAT OHV OPPORTUNITIES
GREAT RECREATION EXPERIENCES
