WOODBINE – The state wants to get out of the business of running an off-road vehicle park on a 66-acre plot outside the borough, and it’s seeking bidders for a private operator for the area known as the Mount Pleasant State Off-Road Vehicle Park, a state official said on Monday.

“The state has operated an off-road vehicle park there since 2013,” said Larry Hajna, a spokesman for the Department of Environmental Protection. “One of our goals is to have private contractors run as many facilities as possible.”

According to the DEP, the property was acquired by the state in Nov. 2011 from the former Mount Pleasant Sand and Gravel Pit off Route 610 in Woodbine. The property was a 3/4 mile motor-cross track until it was converted into a paintball course in 2007.
