Yeah. I'll start a thread about it soon. I don't have a lot coordinates for that area so you guys will have to post them all and I'll add it to the map.

Private race track. I have raced and flagged there many years ago.

We should Really get that Ocala Thread going, it should be a sticky where you can only post if you are posting coordianates so it doesn't get all congested.

Hey I plugged all the coordinates into Mapsource and saved it. If you have a garmin GPS and Mapsourse this will save you alot of work. PM me and I will get it to you. Thanks Mr. Bones. I am going to Croom for the first time in 10 years and this is going to be nice to have.

All I have to say is thank you. I've been going to Croom for a solid ten years now and back then,"you just had to know where you were" remember? It would be getting late and you wanted to go....and you'd be lost. Remember this was before GPS and we would try to find the Hollywood hills track and it was hit or miss. When I finally found that one way to simple black and white xerox map which didn't tell much. Finally a few years back the first sattelite maps came out and with my friends GPS info which he would scribble down at the craziest times, we tried to do what you've done here. I actually looked at croom on google earth and it was hard to tell what was what but finally, it's here for public consumption. I love Croom. Sometimes, I'll stop and marvel at the beauty of the place. I always see something new. With this map I'll find even more. God, I love this place. Thanks bro, well done. Lanky.

BTW I'll be there this week for new years. Let's hope the firework crowd doesn't keep us up all night. The ranger is telling folks that the ATF will be out with night vision goggles so they mean business and will be pulling passes.

I know might sound kind of dumb but i've searched the site about croom and i just want to know what it is like.  Does it have trails you have to stay on? Or are you free to go where ever. (as long as its not the campground and roads)    Are there speed limits? Are you aloud to ride with a passenger?  Since the yucapan is on lock down I was curious about croom. Thanks!

There's a 10 mph limit in camping and parking areas. Majority of the main access road is for cars/trucks only. Helmets required. Like he said, no two up riding.

All other areas are ride at your own risk. Be especially careful on weekends and holidays due to the crowds and watch for other riders at all times.

Well, it was a good new years and just as it has been before, the guys with the acetylene in the hefty bags were tossing them in the fire keeping us up all night. I can't believe the idiots lighting fireworks IN A PINE FOREST and not setting it on fire. If that wasn't bad enough, some dumb a@$ LOCKED THE RANGER'S TRUCK IN around midnight and then the ranger decided to shoot a couple of clips at the lock fifty feet from my five year old kid!!!!!
 I know this is an atv website but safety doesn't stop at the trails end. We need to be good to the forest and be fire safe people. I can't believe the ranger. He needs bolt cutters, not bullets.
Anyhow, the next day I was flying up the sand hill on my friends raptor 700 and clipped a root and bounced off a tree. I bent the handelbars with my head (seven stiches) blew out my knee, and tore my rotator cuff when I was thrown nearly twenty feet. I spent five hours in the Brooksvill ER (thanks guys) and I'm going into surgery tomorrow. I wish I had ridden the Banshee instead. Oh well. All in all I love this place but the woop de doos are too much. I want to get a small cat and bulldoze the woops on one side of the peremiter roads so I can open up in pure flats. Peace out "yall, Lanky.

Just want to thank you for this thread. I went to Croom, for first time, a few weeks ago. I was alone and surprised at the size of the place. I decided to buy a GPS and will use it, along with the info. from the map, the next time I go. I'm sure it will make my next ride a better experience. Maybe it will help me keep the wheels pointing down instead of up. Smiley

Like all laws, they are there because someone did something stupid. Croom use to be 100% open with the exception of the main road that runs along the side of I75. The bikes use to run down the roads by the back parking doing about 60mph. They crossed anywhere they felt like as fast as they wanted too. One day, a girl ran her dirt bike into a car. That girl died.

Croom added restrictions on where you can cross the road and they will give you speeding tickets for riding wrecklessly on those roads. The rest of Croom is still open like it has always been. The restriction only apply to the roads and they should, it's too bad a girl had to die before they realized that w/o restrictions people would get hurt.

The restrictions are only applied to the one road that cars are allowed on. The road that follows along side I75, it then turns west and goes directly across to the camp ground. That is hardly restricted riding.

The park is fun and it is worth the money.

If you download and install Google Earth, then use the .kml file I created, it will give all the GPS coordinates to you. The links are in the first post.

That is the file with all the map locations that are seen in the first post. You have to load it in Google Earth.
