Packing Tips

One concept that always proves true is that keeping the weight of your gear and loadout to a minimum is always preferrable for these long, overland style trips. Not only does the ATV perform better with a lighter load, the ride is much more enjoyable and safe.

The tendency is to overpack for the trip. We recommend that you take an overnight trip locally, or even in your yard, to practice. That’s right, practice. Chances are, you’ve been camping. But have you camped off your ATV? Take a practice trip. Aside from first aid or tools, only take the gear that you use.

To keep the weight down, you almost have to have a minimalist approach. We prefer backpacking gear is good because its small, lightweight, and typically good quality. The biggest thing is, there are some thing you simply won’t know until you do it. So get out there!

Utah Non-resident ATV Registration

All OHVs must display a current OHV registration sticker when operated or transported on public lands or roads. Below are a few links to help you obtain your ATV registration sticker.

Note that Utah does offer reciprocity, meaning that if your ATV is registered in an approved state, Utah will recognize your ATV registration and you do not need to purchase a Utah OHV permit. To check the status of your state, CLICK HERE.
