The guys here are very friendly and helpful. Every year we come to Gatlinburg we always stop in 3-4 times to go cart race. A great family attraction and easy on the wallet. Can't wait to go back.

The Dukes of Hazzard is one of our favorite shows and when we go to Cooters Place it brings us back in time. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My boys love to race go carts in the back. We will definitely be back.

I recently visited Cooter's and rode go-carts and played 18 holes of mini golf. For what it costs, the mini golf is good. It's a bit hot in there, but not unbearable. The go-carts were a little disapointing. You sound 7 minutes going around in a circle. I should have checked out the course first. I took off two stars... More

We have been to Cooter's several times before. It doesn't seem like it has changed much over the years. It is basically a gift shop for Dukes fans. They have t-shirts, mugs, and what-nots for sale. It is also a small FREE museum since they have lots of Dukes memorabilia on display. On location they have INDOOR go-karts and mini-golf.... More

A must to see if you are a Duke's Fan! Lots of memorabilia and souvenirs. Nice to see a place that carries larger sized t-shirts! We didn't do either the golf or go carts, but pics were taken sitting in the General Lee.

If you ever watched the Dukes of Hazzard, you have to visit Cooter's Place. All the décor and such is pretty fun. The gift shop has a lot of variety. We did both the mini golf and go karts. The mini golf decor throughout it is very cool but the building itself needs some upgrading...there were some rough looking areas... More

Went here with the family on a rainy afternoon. I grew up watching the show so seeing the car was a highlight. We did the go cart and mini golf package. You have to buy a round of mini golf just to read the stories and see the props from the show that line the course. Fun fact: the building... More

The gift shop was just fine. The mini golf however is upstairs and the ceiling is falling apart and there is mold too. It was awful. The place didn't really have fresh air either. The course is so small and not creative at all. Plus the greens I guess you call them that are wrinkled. I would not recommend doing... More
