    Hey Ross, I'm in ! this is a good place to practice off camber driving. Plenty of washouts to go up an down with a mix of sand an mud even some clay . Be camping on primitive side of holder mine camp. Also plenty of firewood to cut and lighter knot though out the forest. Those of you that have never bin to citrus forest will fine it to be a blast ! It's almost 15 miles from North to South and 6 to 8 miles across East to West. Very easy to get a 30 mile ride or more in a day ! Looking forward to this event as it will be a great camping trip and trail ride.

    so since i'm new to the area, is it best to reserve a spot or do a walk up, and if there's nothing available can you disperse camp?

    The reserved sites online are for the full facility part of Holder mine campground. The primitive section is across the road and there are approximately 60 or 70 primitive sites you can choose from. And you pay $10 in an envelope and put it in the box and you should be good to go.

    Ok I just called the ranger station. To stay at Holder mine primitive sites you will also need a small game hunting license & WMA stamp. If you do not want to purchase a hunting license you can stay at the mutual mine primitive sites which is not too far away.

    Hey guys , if u do buy a hunting license with a management stamp it will allow you to stay in any wma that offers camping an trails during hunting season in FL. Without a hassle.

    There are sites in the primitive hunt camp, you would need a hunting license and a WMA permit, $10.00/ night. There are walk up sites in the full facility side but first come first serve. We just took a day long ride there yesterday. trails are mild to wild and the wild parts have bypass trails around the technical parts, so it’s really up to you.

    Yes, the terrain is mostly just fire roads some off camber, with options to test your rig if you choose, the technical areas have bypass trails to go around.

    Ross & Co. I just joined OB. I'm Rafael aka ABTK01 coming to you from Orlando. Been wanting to challenge myself and rig with some overlanding but knew better than to venture out alone. I'll be meeting you in my gray gen 1 2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD.

    I have a question. Will we be setting up camp once, Friday, and then returning to it the same campground Saturday after after trail riding? Rafael
