First and foremost, Croom is in the middle of nowhere. You need to bring your supplies and make sure everything is good BEFORE you leave civilization. That’s why we made this simple checklist to help you along your way.
Unless you ride an EV, you need to get fuel if you wanna rip the trails! We recommend fueling up and bringing extra gas with you BEFORE you enter the park. However, if you end up having too much fun and run out, there’s options!
