Muddy Bottoms ATV Park

Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park was created to provide the surrounding community with a recreational escape not far from where they live and work. The park includes many facilities that you can’t find at any other park in the south. Complete with a welcome center, bathhouse, pro shop, eating pavilion, amphitheater, cabins, and RV hookups, sprinkler park, we are sure you will feel right at home. All of the luxuries are convenient and comforting, but the main focus is the mud, and we have plenty of it! With 5,000 acres, we have plenty of trails, bogs, and tracks to keep you occupied all weekend long. With riders of all ages in mind we have built this park to meet the needs of all who enter the gates. We hope that you can share in our vision and after one visit we predict that you will see this may be the finest ATV park in the country.
