There are numerous ATV clubs located across Arizona. These nonprofit clubs are groups of volunteers based in local communities. Their goal is to share the fun of ATV riding and make the sport safer for everyone. ATV clubs often work with state and provincial organizations to carry out numerous recreational and community service programs. They:

  • Design, construct, map, and maintain trails—both public and private.
  • Sponsor ATV outings and year-round social activities.
  • Monitor and initiate government legislation, and participate in public hearings.
  • Volunteer their services as certified safety instructors, and conduct safety and maintenance clinics.
  • Publish newsletters and newspapers.
  • Provide vital services to sheriff’s departments, police, and civil defense units. For example, they patrol trails and search for lost hikers, skiers, hunters, and children. They also assist conservation officers in emergency wildlife-feeding activities.

Finding an ATV Club

An ATV club is a great place to get to know people in your area with similar interests. Because ATV riders should never ride alone, it’s also a great place to find riding partners.

  • Ask your ATV dealer or instructor about any local clubs.
  • Visit www.azgfd.gov/ohv and scroll to the “resources page” link for Arizona user groups.
  • Use an Internet search engine such as www.yahoo.com or www.google.com to search for ATV clubs or associations in out-of-state areas.
