OHV LogoThe OHMVR program is an important (core) part of a state recreation program as it focuses on the partnerships with federal agencies and local governments to provide for a recreation opportunity.  Along with the State Vehicle Recreation Areas, the OHMVR Grants program provides for recreation opportunity for state residents and out of state visitors. That is a significant economic driver that helps support rural communities in their struggle to survive.


The OHV program receives no support from the State’s General Fund. It is funded solely by user fees deposited in the OHMVR Trust Fund. OHMVR Trust Funds are derived from fuel taxes paid on gasoline used while recreating off-highway, registration fees on off-highway vehicles, and gate fees collected at the SVRA’s. 


The state OHV program is a "pay to play" program, supported by funds derived from the very people who use the resource. This includes both those engaging in OHV recreation, and those using OHV routes maintained by the program to access other types of non-motorized recreation. 


As the popularity (and growth) of off-road recreation continues, the OHMVR program becomes more important.  The main focus of the OHV community is to protect, promote, and provide for OHV recreation opportunities.  Our members are directly affected by legislation and management decisions concerning public land use and the health of the State Parks program, especially the OHMVR Division. Motorized and non-motorized recreation opportunities receive a benefit from the program; along with counties throughout the state.
