Trail Information

Highlights

Richloam Wildlife Management Area spans 58,000 acres, crossing into Hernando, Pasco, Sumter, and Lake counties. Richloam is located in a swamp and is full of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and horseback riding! Swamps offer wildlife plenty of food and water to survive so visitors can expect to see various animals from deer, hogs, gators, birds, and plenty of insects. Center Grade Road is located almost in the middle of Richloam WMA and travels east and west. Center Grade Road will change from easy limestone road surface to sand, mud, and water crossings. The farther you travel east this becomes a great trail for beginner and intermediate drivers! On the far east side of Center Grade Road you'll find Bay Lake Camp which is the best camp in Richloam WMA offering both shaded and open space; a truly great place to relax and have a picnic!

Wide limestone road with plenty of sand and dirt trail off shoots. Super wet in summer.

Easy ride with no obstacles in the dry season. West of the intersection is a smooth ride with random potholes. During the rainy season the road can get slick and ditches fill with water. Under the powerlines there are two holes that will fill in with water during rainy season.

Simple dirt road through some very nice forest. Lots of areas where the sand gets very soft. If going after rain, watch for some deep puddles!

Richloam Center Grade Road is mostly for cars accessing Raulerson House Camp from FL-471. Once you go east past the power lines is when the trail gets interesting with mud and water crossings. Bay Lake Camp is a hidden gem with its giant tree creating shaded areas, and the large open field.
