Highlights

Highlight: Center Grade
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!
