Mud will soon make money in Sweetwater.

The Redneck Resort Mud Park is under construction.

It will offer primitive camping, a swimming hole, muddy trails for off-road vehicles, bands and more. 

The resort will open on certain weekends beginning June 29.

Developer Jeff Darragh owns the land which is located at exit 60 off I-75.  Darragh hoped to develop buildings on the property until construction slowed down.

ATV owners gave him the idea for the resort.

"There were people out here all the time trying to drive their ATV and motorcycles on it.  They were jumping on those tracks over there and I'm constantly telling them, 'hey man, you can't do that'.  Then it dawned on me, just charge them.  Just tell all your friends to come," resort co-owner Jeff Darragh said.

Asked how he chose the name for the resort Darragh explained, "The last true American is a redneck.".

Redneck Resort's website contains more information on pricing and dates.
