There is something strangely exquisite about these ATV mudding pictures, captured with a Canon EOS 30D DSLR camera last Feb, 2008. Eron decided to head out to the Withlacoochee State Forests Croom OHV area ATV mud pit in Brooksville Florida and I’m glad someone remembered the camera!

Interesting Fact: The World Wildlife Fund endorses the Withlacoochee State Forest as one of “The 10 Coolest Places You’ve Never Been”. The Croom Off Highway Vehicle Area, complete with its ATV mud pit, is what has made it very popular nation wide. If you’re looking for a little mud ATV, tough, there’s LOTS!

Interesting Croom History: In the late 60’s off road enthusiasts began using the Croom OHV area in greater numbers and as a result of environmental damage and confrontations with hunters the Division of Forestry tried to ban ATV use. They were unsuccessful and The Croom Motorcycle Area rules were established.

There are a lot of whoops in the area too. Being that this is an official area to ride ATV’s and Motorcycles in, and that there are camping sites nearby, the area is well developed. There are trails everywhere and even some hills to ride on.

Can you see the second rider in that last photo? Look closely, there is a rider throttling the ATV to try and get it out of the mud. Great pictures, don’t you want to add getting really dirty to your list of things to do this summer after looking at them? If you’d like to learn more about this place visit the Croom website.
