The Redneck Resort, a much-publicized
mudpark, which opened in the summer of 2012, says it has closed,
according to a statement on its Facebook page.
The mudpark is located just off
Interstate 75 at McMinn and Monroe County border. The park hosted
several events in 2012 and 2013.
The statement follows below:
"'Pa, they're gonna take the farm!' We tried the American Dream by starting the Redneck Resort Mud
Park...but, the bank is unwilling to extend our loan on the land,
even though we are up to date on payments. We've given the good
fight and have done everything we can to keep our land. This saddens
us terribly because we had just begun to make so many great memories
with all of you who joined us in our events over the passed year. We
want to personally thank each and every one of you who have attended
our events and had a blast with us! Unfortunately there will be no
further events...at this time. Our name 'Redneck Resort' is
trademarked and cannot be taken away. We hope to partner with someone
in a new location to open a bigger and better Resort. If you know
anyone interested in opening one in your area, let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org."
