The Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association currently represents over 200 individual members in our affiliate clubs throughout Indiana and Illinois. Formed in 1980, the IFWDA acts on the common concern for motorized recreation while practicing stewardship of our natural resources. The IFWDA, through its association with other state and national organizations, work to promote and act on issues affecting four wheel drive recreation.


We coordinate with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) on various planning boards. This includes participation on the Indiana Trails Advisory Board, which sets the direction for trail use on all IDNR property. Through this partnership with IDNR it is hoped that some public lands will be open to four wheel drive recreation. Volunteers from member clubs are always eager to help with conservation projects.

-Over 200 individual members in affiliate clubs, and many supporting businesses.
