Hoover Ponds County Park OHV Area

Sunday, August 26, 2018

Alt Names

Jackson County Sports Park, White City Sports Ponds, White City Ponds, Hoover Ponds, Agate Desert Area, Camp White

Last Known StatusOpen

Open to all vehicle types, this county park offers several play pits, a few miles of wide and hard packed ATV trails, a couple small gravel hills and a designated 4x4 rock crawling area with strategically placed logs, boulders, concrete blocks and culverts.

The trails are usually hard packed and dusty but can get very muddy during wet weather (after a good rain expect deep mud pits and play areas to be filled with water). At roughly 50 acres, the park is on the small side but there is no fee charged for parking or riding and the trails are open daily, year-round.

There are no services except for a vault toilet so bring shade and water.
