The roar of engines breaks the stillness of the Old Lead Belt at St. Joe State Park, one of two off-road vehicle parks in the state system. The sand flats, hills, and 2,000 acres set aside for off-road vehicle trails make the park the premiere off-road vehicle area. The park also features four lakes, with two swimming beaches, an equestrian trail, a hiking and bicycling trail, and picnic sites, as well as two campgrounds capable of accommodating campers with ORV or horse trailers.

This park is full of great hiking, biking and atv trails. There are lakes for fishing, and swimming. Camping areas are excellent providing a campground area for those who have horses. The lots have large parking for the trailers and hitching post for the horses.
