Slades Park

Wednesday, November 24, 2021

Other Names

Slade's, Pooles Creek, Surry County

Last Known StatusClosed

This off-road park at one time featured a good mix of narrow ATV woods and sandy trails with lots of berms, deep mud bogs and a large open play area that was perfect for beginners, but is now permanently closed. Camping was permitted and amenities included full hookups and a vault toilet.

A concession stand was available during weekends which sold bagged ice, cold drinks plus basic parts and supplies. The park also had a drag strip and several dirt drags were hosted throughout the year that were usually very popular. This listing will remain up for historical purposes and to prevent a wasted trip.
