Picture a fair grounds with a very big swamp set up before plenty of bleachers. Now add some large and loud 'buggys' that look more like rocket ships with big wheels that race around a watery 'track' in the swamp and you have some idea of the mud buggy races. The day we went was sunny and warm (bring a... More

Think NASCAR in the swamp. Four, six and eight cylinder modified swamp buggies go around the course two times. The water is to six feet deep. You are really close to the action in the grandstands. Admission was $17, parking free and lots of concessions with food to eat. I especially loved the Gator Bites with hot sauce. Everything was... More

Nowhere else in the world can you see this form or exciting entertainment. Extremely modified vehicles in all shapes and sizes race through a 3 to 5.5 feet of bog water and mud. It's loud, it's exciting, it's entertaining and it's about as local as you can get. Tickets are $17.00 and kids 12 and under get in for free.... More

It would be pretty hard to describe a swamp buggy race to a mid-westerner. So when someone told be about it I had to see it for myself, and it's a definite "must see" while in Naples. It was a fun day seeing these crazy machines go around a track in the water and mud. Exciting race atmosphere with lots... More

Such a great time. You will not see racing like this any where else. You owe it your self to go see what it is all about. Bring a hat there is not much shade in the stands but you won't care. See top file dragster type Cara running in on the water

We went to the Swamp Buggy races in Naples, FL. I've never seen anything like this race before. They race older style jeeps and other fast buggies. They have food and merchandise vendors set up there if you get hungry or would like to buy a shirt or hat. It's definitely an interesting race to see and will definitely be... More

I grew up here in Naples. Lived most of my life here, and sadly never made it out to a race until this past weekend. All I can say is WOW! This type of stuff (racing) is not my cup of tea, but once you get inside the gates and feel the amazing vibe of the crowd, you can't help... More

We drove hours to see the event. Even 15mins before arriving we listened to the event information on the radio as still going on. We arrived to find it canceled after officially starting the event, cut hours short of the listed schedule. Lousy management decisions and they have ruined a long standing Florida event for thousands. As a born and... More

Trucks with super-large tires race thru a mud track, in, thru and over one another. In woods off I-75 at exit 101. Bring bug spray except on a cool winter day. Annual Swamp Buggy Queen is thrown into the mud!

I have been attending the World Famous Swamp Buggy Races since 1977 when my father started racing Cold Duck.
