Cooter's Place in Gatlinburg, Gatlinburg
(3.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Ben "Cooter" Jones, founder of Cooter's Place in Gatlinburg, invites you to explore his collection of memorabilia from the "Dukes of Hazzard" TV show. Most of the artifacts--photos, newspaper clippings, and memorabilia--decorate the walls. Themed go-karts inside the attraction give you a chance to race in all weather conditions, choosing from various packages to customize your race. After touring the museum, grab a club and hit the 18-hole mini-golf course. The museum is free, but you must pay for the go-karts and golf.

  • Loved coming here for the sheer childhood nostalgia it invoked! Being a child of the 80's. I defiantly watched and loved the Dukes of Hazard. Good clean family fun, with mini golf, go karts and ton and tons of memorabilia. Only had a short amount of time to spend here but would love to come back and spend more time looking around. "One day the mountain might get em... but the law never will" ;)
  • Friendly staff and fun activities. Go carts are relatively cheap and a very fun time; my friend and I had the track to ourselves on a weekend, which allowed us to practice sliding around corners. The mini golf is...interesting. There are other, much better mini golf courses in Gatlinburg. Go for go carts and Dukes of Hazard atmosphere if you visit.
  • I just suggest having a ramp. Can't get strollers or wheelchairs in. We had to lift our strollers up the stairs and I saw quite a few people having to do this as well.
  • Mini golf was closed, but looks neat. The kids that had never seen "The Dukes of Hazzard" didn't really get it.
  • Friendly staff. Fun to see all the stuff from my childhood. Go kart track small but fun! Puttput was good.
