    Disclaimer:This is second hand from one of my relatives that is kin to the people that were leasing it.

    The nice folks that were leasing with option to buy, lost the lease. They couldn't afford to buy it and now I hear it is for sale or sold with no intention of reopening the park. I hate it! I'm only 1 1/2 hours from there and I've been going there for almost 20 years. With the popularity of offroading on the rise I'm shocked it closed. I met the people several times and my opinion is they were to "nice". They cut us and everyone I know "deals" every time we went. You can't be friends when it comes to business. I don't mind paying full price to play, that's what keeps the gates open.

    Hmm, sounds like somebody needs to open a kickstarter account for xjtalk to buy an off-road park... "XJTALK PARK" has a nice ring to it...

    cant imagine there being a huge demand for the property. hopefully whoever gets involved will see a demand for the park and consider keeping it open. not sure what else you would with it.

    XJ Talk Park. does have a nice ring. no idea what its up for, but my guess is in the 3 million range.
