Five County Stadium, Zebulon

(4.4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Five County Stadium is a baseball stadium located in Zebulon, North Carolina; a suburb of Raleigh. It is the home of the Carolina Mudcats of the Carolina League. The ballpark, which was opened in 1991 and extensively renovated in 1999, has a capacity of 6,500.The stadium's name comes from its location - the stadium property is located in Wake County, but it is in close proximity to the intersection of the county lines between Wake, Franklin, Nash and Johnston Counties. Wilson County is also in the general area of the stadium.US-264 passes by the stadium at a generally northwest-to-southeast angle (behind left and center fields), while State Highway 39 skirts the east side of the property (right field). Parking lots surround the field on the other sides.HistoryWhen Columbus Mudcats owner Steve Bryant moved the club to North Carolina in 1991, he wanted a new facility that was deemed to be outside the territories of other minor league clubs in the state (including the Carolina League's Greensboro Hornets, which he also owned) while also being easily accessible by the public. A site was chosen in Zebulon, which was as close to Raleigh as the Mudcats could get without infringing on the territorial rights of the Durham Bulls. To construct the ballpark quickly, the builders opted for metal seating rather than the traditional concrete. The 1999 renovation replaced most of the metal with concrete.

  • My son loves mud cat games. The stadium is always clean, the tickets are cheap, the food is good, and the employees have all been great. It's worth the drive!  more »
  • Nice place for a night of baseball, tickets are really economic as well as the food, this stadium is home of the team Carolina Mudcats, branch class A advanced Atlanta Braves so it is a great opportunity to see the stars of the future.

  • My family has been making a trip to see the Mudcats at Five County Stadium every year since the ballpark opened and our four "children" are now in their 20s. It is a great, fun and inexpensive outing....  more »

  • Great place for decent priced entertainment. Food is pricey, but to be expected at a stadium. Definite stop for any baseball fan for some "down-home" good 'ole fashioned baseball fun. Go Cats!
  • Mud Cats Game and Fireworks were awesome. Old fashion family fun. Take me out to the ball game!
  • I love Minor League Baseball. The Mudcats do it right. I always have a good time.
  • The stadium was out in the middle of nowhere but it was big and a pretty nice ballpark. Parking was plentiful and they had pretty good concessions. If they had a decent team they might have had a better draw but they still have a good bit of folks show up. The way the stadium is laid out is hard to get air moving around especially in August. Bugs about carried me away too so by the sixth inning I was thinking about a nice cool restaurant to have dinner and get back to my hotel. Well worth a visit though.
  • Love going to mudcats games! Games are always exciting and entertaining. Food is a little expensive as can be expected, but they do have a good variety to choose from. Staff is friendly and helpful.
