UTV Mud Crawl Heaven

Pro tips and can’t-miss events of Texas’ wildest weekend

Camping, live music, parties, prizes, and thousands of offroad fanatics looking for a good time—is there any better reason to take some time off work?

At Side by Side Stuff, we love going to Rednecks with Paychecks (RWP) because we can kick back and crack a brew with gearheads just like us. Most RWP-goers love it because…well… it’s a damn good time.

After so many of these events, you know what we’ve learned is the single biggest factor between a killer time and a buzz-kill? Coming prepared.

Music, drinks, and some of the wildest events +and competitions you’ll see all year are right around the corner—we’re here to give you tips on where to find the best camping, tickets, events, and UTV setups to get you prepped and ready for a great time.

Here’s the inside scoop on getting the most “wow” out of your weekend:


Do’s and Don’ts of Rednecks with Paychecks

We’d all love a free-for-all, no-holds-barred, pirate-radio-style event where the only rule is “If you can send it, you should send it,” but there’s gotta be some boundaries, right? We’re giving you the key rules to keep you in the event—and out of a parking ticket.

(For a full rundown, check out their official FAQ and Rules)

Is Rednecks with Paychecks 18+?

Yes—it is. Every guest will need to show a valid Photo ID at the gates to get their wristband for entry. So, get the kids set up for a weekend at grandma’s (and maybe get her a Door Dash gift card for her trouble).

Can you bring alcohol?

Yes—you can. But, NO GLASS BOTTLES ALLOWED. If you’re hurt that you can’t bring Jack, Johnnie, or Jim, Stillhouse makes a great bourbon or traditional whiskey that comes in a spiffy aluminum container. There are also food and beverage stands if you don’t feel like carting in your own.

PRO TIP: If you’re bringing a cooler, skip the ice! It’s available on-site all weekend long

Who is doing security for the event?

Security for RWP is provided by local/nearby police and first responders. This ensures everyone’s safety and makes sure that no one who shouldn’t be driving—does. But also, act accordingly. They’re allowed to issue citations/arrests for any illegal activity.

Is fighting allowed?

C’mon, folks. You know the answer! Fighting of any kind will get you kicked out and your weekend cut short.

Can we have contained bonfires at campsites?

Yes, if there is no burn-ban set in place by the county at the time of the event.

Bringing UTVs, ATVs, and Buggies to Rednecks with Paychecks

Bring your ATV (4WD or Racing 2WD), UTV, or Cart to Rednecks with Paychecks, but DON’T BRING YOUR MOTORCYCLE. No motorcycles are allowed for safety reasons.

For ATVs UTVs and Buggies, here’s a couple things you should know:
