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

The the store is great. The go-carts were fun. My only complaint is I paid for some pictures in the general lee and the door doesn't close all the way. Other than that it's a great place.

My family and I found a Groupn for this place for go karts and mini golf. We had a great time. We loved all the Dukes of Hazzard decor around the place. The mini golf is on the second floor and kind of unique in the way it is set up. The go kart track is just a circle track... More
