raif281 if anybody is looking for a place to go mud riding in the south my buddy is hosting a car show/ mud show. it will be April 26th in kiln, Mississippi at Texas flat off road. there's an asphalt parking lot for show cars an trucks an lots of mud pits, sand bars and trails to ride on, there is a river that borders the property. family oriented so bring the whole family out! feel free to bring your atv, side by side, mud truck or jeep out here! here is a link to the event on Facebook

Thanks a million for the tip.

I see a campground by that name in Robert, but no mention of off-roading on their website. I see the same thing as cmaggi2 on the Jeeplife FB group. Only thing I see is a closed group. If that's the one that's yours, how do I join?
I agree Sicily is pretty far from us. the spillway you can just ride up an down the main roads an get alittle muddy after it rained like yesterday instead of goin down trails and scratching your jeep up! I go camping at hidden oaks all the time and there is no off roading there at all. you should be able to click join group somewhere on the page. not exactly sure bud. but if y'all have anymore problems go add me on Facebook and I can personally add you. Matt Raiford, profile pick is of me an my friends in the spillway on the tailgate of a truck

no there arnt to many places I know around here to go. besides the spillway, which I've personally never had any problems with and I live next door to. literally about 7 streets over from. I made that Facebook group so I could find some local jeep people an go ride, the forums just take to long some times and I like fb cuz u can get answers quick. we need to get a Nola group together

I've heard conflicting things about Bonne Carre but you can go to Red Creek and have fun without damage.
