Welcome to the Kettle Moraine ATV Association (KMATVA) website.  KMATVA is an organization dedicating itself to addressing All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) issues and pursuing opportunities for future local ATV recreation. 


KMATVA was formed with the purpose of promoting ATV as a safe and social experience while fostering a positive  public image.





Although we are still in the midst of a pandemic, and getting worse in some parts of the country, we are still in limbo as to when we can move back into Jug's. Since the location seems to work ok, we will continue to have our meetings at Ridge Run Park in West Bend.

Ridge Run Park  is located just west of 45 and just south of hwy 33 on University Dr. We will meet at 6:00pm rain or shine. The bugs have not been to bad so far, but that could change by the next meeting.

If you are feeling well, and are comfortable in doing so, please come to the meeting and get caught up in all the happenings since we will have many things to go over. Print out the calendar from last week if you have any rides you want to sign up for or details on events.

 Masks are encouraged but we will respect those who choose to mask up or not mask up. We will post here when we have a change in plans.

We are still planning on our largest event of the year with our Charity Ride in October. It will be scaled back to keep some separation from each other. Things could change drastically from now to then so we will keep you posted here when we know more.

This is predominantly forest road riding but I have not been there for 15 years so the mind is a little fuzzy. This region has a 50 inch trail rule, 65 inch route rule. We will ride accordingly depending on who comes.






We will be doing a small variety of tasks along the racetrack. Plan on being at the Washington county fairgrounds from 11am to 4pm

Watch meetings for details. We can provide help to a fallen rider, help in the food tent, ride the atv's around the track to help dry it should it rain or a variety of things.

If you are wondering about all the new road routes with all the new signs being posted, you may have a lot of questions on what is open and legal to ride on, and what is not. In a nutshell, all town roads in a particular township can be open once posted. This is only the town roads, not the county roads ( letters), state highways (numbers)(exceptions if under 35), or city or village roads. Please become familiar with the township roads in the town you want to ride in and their municipal boundary. It is a very involved process and fortunately there is a website that has all the needed information. go to or click for all the much needed information.
