Sprawling ATV park under construction

ATV enthusiasts will have a place to get muddy by spring 2014.

The Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park will offer riders thousands of acres off George Taylor Road in Springhill.

Park manager Jeff Drost says construction is underway with crews working seven days a week to shape road and trails for all-terrain vehicles, dig mud pits and construct buildings.

The park in Webster Parish also will have a pro shop/general store, garage and repair facility, amphitheater, eating pavilion, welcome center, spray park and a fueling station.

Riders will have 3,000 acres to ride on and a 1,500-acre lake for sailing. There also will be 170 recreational vehicle hook-ups and tent camping areas.

Drost said the park will have much to offer.

“Acreage wise there is one in Florida that is bigger, but they don’t have the amenities that we have,” he said.
