Washington ATV Association
Washington ATV Association, also known as WAATVA, was created by a group of ATV enthusiasts to represent the interests of ATV riders throughout Western Washington in 1986. The original purpose for starting WAATVA was to draft legislation to allow ATV use on public lands. At that time, there was proposed legislation to ban ATV use in Washington State. The WAATVA rallied over 200 families to show their representation on the motorized side, and it worked. The non use bill was defeated at the state level. As a result, the Forest Service backed away from the issue and didn't close lands that were scheduled to be closed.
Today, WAATVA is an all Volunteer organization that seeks to provide a positive future for ATV recreation in Washington state. We view ATV recreation as a social experience which strengthens family relationships for kids and adults alike. If you or your family value outdoor experiences and are interested in ATV recreation, get involved. Come, ride the trails in beautiful Western Washington. But please, ride responsibly.
Everyone Accomplishes More.
We aim to expand the network of ATV enthusiasts and their supporters who promote the responsible enjoyment of ATV use.
Washington ATV Association averages over 1,000 volunteer hours per year at Capitol State Forest
