4th of July 2014
“The mission of Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park is to provide the finest in off-road and outdoor recreation, to be a leader in improving the quality of life in our community, and maintain a commitment to integrity, innovation, and excellence.”
My 4th of July, 2014 was spent with almost 10,000 UTV enthusiasts raising money for a great cause and enjoying some side by side off-roading. The 3rd annual “Muddin’ for the Military” was held this year at a new location, Muddy Bottoms ATV and Recreational Park; this year’s sponsoring event location. Billed as the largest ATV and recreational park in the country, Muddy Bottoms had fireworks, great live music, tons of trails to ride, mud pit riding, sand drag racing, mud pit racing and lots of great people to hang out with!
My Labor Day weekend is going to be spent the same way, at Muddy Bottoms for the “Bayou Mudfest” Labor Day celebration. Once again they have lots of activities lined up including a concert with Country Outlaw singer and songwriter, Jamey Johnson. Activities start August 29th and go through September 1st.
Muddy Bottoms ATV and Recreation Park is a place like few others, it is a city of its own. There are several miles of paved roads that go throughout the park. There are street signs and street lights throughout. Muddy Bottoms has their own water treatment plant capable of producing potable water for drinking. A pay at the pump gas station with ethanol free gas as well as diesel? Yep, Muddy Bottoms has one. They have a huge Pro Shop and convenience store stocked with all the needed essentials for your weekend pleasure. If you break your rig while riding the trails, Muddy Bottoms has a full service repair shop to get you back into the mud. A spray park for the kids has been built on the property as well. They even have a huge drive through UTV/ATV car wash so you can take your rig home all cleaned up.
Muddy Bottoms offers up a first class outdoor music venue that is large enough to support productions of the top end touring acts. 4th of July weekend, Muddy Bottoms had national touring country star Trace Adkins on tap and a show is what Trace put on! Trace is a hometown boy who grew up just a few miles away in Sarepta, it was obvious that Trace was excited to perform. “This is my hometown,” Adkins said in a press release. It will be nice to come back home and see something that’s not only great for the area and the folks who live there, but also puts Sarepta on the map because it’s the biggest, baddest mud park in the country.”
This music venue is like very few others in that you can drive your side by side right up to the concert action and use your tailgate or roof as you own personal theater seat. The sound system and lighting is nothing short of a large music venue you would find in a metropolitan area. A lot of thought went into the design and execution of this amphitheater, it is clearly designed to accommodate large touring acts and top notch entertainment. You can even bring your own cooler with you to watch the music; no $8 beers here.
Muddy Bottoms is a vast UTV riding dream land with pretty much everything a side by side enthusiast could need. Rumored to be over 5000 acres and include 100 miles of trails, Muddy Bottoms has it all. Muddy Bottoms has an 11 acre man made mud pit that can be regulated to keep water height consistent allowing it to be crossed through by the average side by side. There is also an oval mud pit that is used for mud pit racing on event weekends as well as a sand drag strip.
Muddy Bottoms is a perfect destination for a family getaway or those looking to party it up. The good people at Muddy Bottoms have put a lot of thought into the design and the construction of every aspect of this park and the details really show. I am very much looking forward to heading back down to Sarepta to get my Labor Day 2014 festivities going in style!
