Big Maples Farm

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Oxford, White Cross Farms, Sheltons Offroad Park, Sheldon's Farm, Harkers Run

Last Known StatusClosed

At one time this property was open to all vehicle types but is closed and there appears to be no plans to reopen. The park featured a large variety of terrain for all skill levels that ranged from short but steep hill climbs, miles of woods trails, creek crossings and numerous mud bogs.

Primitive camping was permitted and a large flat and grassy area was set aside that could accomodate all trailer sizes. The park also had some stocked fishing ponds.

This listing will remain up to help prevent a wasted trip. Nearby offroad parks that are open and have similar features include Haspin Acres, Foxx Lake Outdoor Adventure, Lawrence County Recreational Park, Interlake SRA and Redbird SRA.
