On March 4, 1979, the Rapid Angels Motorcycle Club discussed the possibility of a Motorcycle Recreation Program (MRP) funded park for the land adjacent to their own twenty acres in the Town of Rome.The MRP is operated through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The program is designed to provide financial assistance to local units of government for acquisition, operation, and maintenance of public off-highway motorcycle riding areas and facilities. Funding for this program began back in 1969 when the state added a two-dollar fee of motorcycle registrations. A committee from the Rapid Angels met with the Town of Rome officials and proposed the development of a MRP funded park. After several meetings, the proposal was approved and the Town of Rome became the first in Wisconsin to develop a motorcycle recreational area with funding from the MRP. 
The Dyracuse Recreational Area officially opened on May 29, 1982, and is operated by the Town of Rome in cooperation with the Rapid Angels Motorcycle Club. The park is named after Dyracuse Mound, a prominent landmark in Adams County, where it is located. The area abounds with recreational opportunities with numerous lakes and forests surrounding the park. Camping, lodging, food and gas are readily available.
