Exploring the area trails via ATV requires a little bit more prepping than if you were just lacing up your hiking boots. You won’t have to worry about equipment thanks to area rental shops.
- Bandits ATV & Boat Rental: Bandits is a favorite of both visitors and locals thanks to its selection of vehicles and equipment. Book a half-day ride or spend a full day riding the trails around Broken Bow. Your rental will be equipped with a range of safety features, including seatbelts, tops, safety nets, and windshields. There are 40 miles of trails you can ride on, and Bandits offers a map for your convenience.
- Captain’s Hideaway Powersports Rentals: Embrace your inner pirate by renting from Captain’s Hideaway. Before setting off on your adventure, you’ll be given a helmet, trailer to pull your Kawasaki Teryx or Polaris Ranger, and a map of Hochatown trails you can ride. Be sure to check in 30 minutes before your reservation time.
There’s no shortage of trails to explore. Ride along 33 miles of trail in the Ouachita National Forest or follow your rental shop trail map. Be prepared to tow a trailer with your rentals to a nearby trailhead.
