Muddy Bottoms ATV and Recreation Park

Friday, April 28, 2023

Other Names

Eagle Lake

Last Known StatusOpen  (open during select weekends)

This offroad park opened to the general public in April 2014 and offers over 5,000 acres of both swampy and hardpacked woods trails, numerous mud bogs and deep water holes to enjoy. All vehicle types are permitted but this park is best explored on four wheels.

The trails are marked and have plenty of intersections, so there are unlimited loop options. The trails that are located in the southern corner are usually very muddy but the trails that surround the northern part of the lake are fairly dry and hardpacked, making it a good choice for those who just want to cruise.

The property has some modern amenities which include hot showers, an amphitheater, a welcome center and pro shop. Camping is permitted and the park offers RV hookups, primitive camping sites plus five cabins that can sleep 6 to 12 people comfortably. Reservations are recommended, especially during special event weekends.
