Day Use Area
#1 - Points of Interest
This picture is of Croom's Sand Hill
area (a.k.a. "The Pit"). A very large open area for high

(more rain means more ruts) it can be the perfect place to ride
your ATV at Croom. During the dry season in Florida (Jan - May)
it can get pretty dusty with lots of riders (see picture below).
So don't forget your goggles!

the small lake just south of the Day Use Area #2 parking area. Be
careful though! There are many steep drop offs that can cause serious

and explore! If you get lost you can always listen (with your engine
off of course!) for the traffic on I-75 coming from the east to
get your bearings. There is also a fence line running around the
entire park that can help you get back to the parking areas.
