Cooter's Place Reviews & Ratings
Great shop! My husband has been wanting to visit this shop for years and D did a great job talking about the car and showing us around! So happy we were able to experience it!
My husband is absolutely in loved with the dukes of hazards so once we heard about this place it was a must do attraction! We came in 2 or 3 times while visiting and the staff were nice. Small museum but loved that they had the car in the garage and the go-karts and mini golf! 😊
There was lots of Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia there, which I'm sure is of interest to someone. We stopped there to ride the go carts. The track is fairly small but was inside and much cooler than the 94° weather outside. There were several carts to choose from.
Great store! Great People! They are moving to Pigeon Forge in September. We visited both locations. Perfect for any Dukes Of Hazzard fans.
Very disappointing. I had to pay $5 just to take a picture of the general Lee. Then I had to pay an additional $5 just to sit in the general Lee that is $10 just to enjoy the general Lee. I think that it should be free to take a picture of the general Lee and to sit inside. I thought that this would be an awesome place but it is not. And even though online it says that there is a go cart track and a mini golf course there is not. That would be false advertising.
