Durhamtown Off Road Resort Closed

The premier off-road park drew riders from all over the South for over 30 years.

Durhamtown has closed its doors, effective immediately.Durhamtown

Durhamtown Off Road Resort in Georgia is apparently gone for good, according to its website and Facebook page. In a shock announcement Tuesday morning, the famed resort said:

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce Durhamtown will be closed effective immediately. We appreciate each and every one of you over the years and your continued support. Much love to you all. —Mike and the staff”

Durhamtown didn’t provide any clarity beyond that statement, but ATV Rider has reached out to the resort’s management for comment. We’ll update when we hear back. On social media, riders of all persuasions expressed disbelief and sadness. There was almost no warning that the park was going to close, at least publicly. The Facebook feed is full of people riding as recently as the Christmas holiday, and there are come-ons for a New Year’s Eve party at the park. On Monday, the resort announced it would be closed for the day to deal with a power outage.

Durhamtown had miles of excellent, flowing trails, high-speed closed circuit-style courses, rentals, campgrounds, a pro shop, cafe, and more. It was a popular site for the major powersports manufacturers to hold press introductions for new ATV and UTV models. UTV Driver was there just recently completing UTV testing and a destination article about Durhamtown Plantation. At the time, Durhamtown was going through an extensive renovation, so we’re both puzzled and saddened by the news.

Keep it locked here, and we’ll update this story as we can.
