About Us


On January 4, 2006 a group of 11 people met in Washington County to begin the process of forming an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)club . That initial core team included Conservation Wardens, Trail Patrol Ambassadors, Wisconsin DNR ATV Safety Instructors, All-Terrain Safety Institute (ASI) ATV Safety Instructor, Several ATV business professionals and general ATV enthusiasts.

 

From that meeting, core objectives the club would follow included:
*  Providing a positive public image and promoting the safe & ethical operation

    of  ATV's.
*  Promoting and providing additional ATV Safety Training.
*  Support and provide club personnel for the Trail Patrol Ambassador program.

 

Between January and August 2006, the core team developed a club name (Kettle Moraine ATV Association, Inc.), by-laws, incorporated and organized a leadership team. Since then, we have continued to develop a set of policies and procedures to ensure that our club focuses on safe and responsible riding.  Memberships were then accepted.

 

Since our inception, members have worked diligently to have the Eisenbahn State Trail temporarily opened from the north side of West Bend to the Fond du Lac County line to ATVs during the winter months. In early 2012 the temporary status was removed . We are grateful to the Washington County Board of Supervisors and all in the Washington County Parks and Planning for their assistance in allowing ATV use on the trail. (Please follow all guidelines for ATV use on the trail, one or two poor decisions can lose the trail for all of us).

 

 

 


 

 

CURRENT ACTIVITIES

 

The club is an active one.  Meetings are held monthly, the first Thursday of each month with the exception of July, where an informal club picnic takes place.

 

An annual charity ride is held each October on the second weekend. In the first nine years we held a cancer ride on the Dusty Trails ATV System near Mountain, WI.   We donated $84,900 to Chix 4 a Cause, a local organization dedicated to helping those with cancer.  In 2017 the event moved to Antigo, WI for more lodging accommodations.  With the move to Antigo, we also teamed up with the Antigo Area ATV/UTV Club and changed charities to "Make-A-Wish" Wisconsin.  The past few years we have had over 150 participants and would like to see that grow.  We've experienced good turnout in the past and look forward to seeing you in Antigo!  For further info, please click on our "Charity Ride" tab on the website.

 

We have an annual poker run each February.  If weather permits we ride, but for those times we can't, or for those who cannot brave the cold, we drive.  This is a newly established event, but turnout and types of prizes grow each year.

 

During the riding season we ride often as a club.  We ride on average one or two times a month throughout Wisconsin to areas such as Mountain (Dusty Trails system), Crandon, Dunbar, and Black River Falls to name a few.   These rides are open to all ages and all riding skills.  Members and friends are encouraged to join us!

 

We oftentimes hold social events just to get together and enjoy each other’s company. We regularly meet on Friday nights throughout the area for dinner.  Spring typically included a bowling social until we moved to Stocky's Fasttrack for meetings.  Now we hold an annual indoor go-cart race - KMATVA 500!   If you need entertainment, come race with us.  We guarantee fun and more than a few laughs.


We've adopted a highway (STH 28 from Kewaskum to Kettle Moraine Dr.) and clean the highway twice a year.  We also clean the Eisenbahn State Trail voluntarily as a Thank You for allowing us the use of the trail each winter!
