About

To make your entry experience even better, we've put our event waiver online for you to download, print out, and complete prior to arriving at Mud Creek Off-Road Park. Please CAREFULLY read the following rules prior to downloading and signing the waiver for the 2015 Mud-Toberfest event at Mud Creek Off-Road Park.

 

1. Everyone MUST sign a Mud Creek Off Road Park Waiver before entering the event.  For your convenience, one has been provided for you to download here to read, sign and have ready upon arriving at the park.

2. No one under the age of 18 will be admitted without a guardian.  ID may be required for proof of age.

3. Upon paying your admission, you will receive an event wristband that MUST be worn on your wrist.  This ensures that you have purchased a ticket.  Should you be caught without an armband, you will be given an opportunity to purchase another or be removed from the park by park security immediately.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  

We've added the event waiver to help you get into the event even quicker! Prior to downloading and completing the wavier below, please CAREFULLY read the following rules pertaining to the 2015 Mud-Toberfest that will be held at Mud Creek Off-Road Park.

4.     Be advised that Mud Creek security are not from a security company but are police officers, sheriff’s deputies and constables from Cherokee County and the Jacksonville Police Department and have FULL AUTHORITY to arrest anyone for illegal behavior.  Park security will be patrolling the camping areas, trails, and vendor areas observing any violations of the law or park rules.  We want everyone to have a good time but not at the expense of others, therefore anyone who refuses to obey the park rules and conduct themselves in a respectful manner and who refuses to obey the officers will be escorted out and/or arrested depending on the offense regardless of age or sex.

5. Speed limit signs have been posted throughout the park.  For the safety of everyone, park security will enforce these. 

6. No one under the age of 21 shall be in possession of alcoholic beverages. 

7. No weapons of any kind on Mud Creek property

8. No fighting will be tolerated.  No exceptions.

9. Anyone caught stealing will be turned over to the local authorities for prosecution.

10. No children left unattended in campers, vehicles, etc.  High Lifter and Mud Creek strive for this to be a family friendly event and welcome children.  There are areas of the park that most parents would agree are not suitable for children at night.  Good judgment should be used at all times when children are involved.

11. Help keep cost down by bagging and disposing of your trash in the dumpsters provided. For your convenience, trash bags will be available at the front gate, and one will be provided for you upon arrival. 

12. ALL campers, RVs, motorhomes, enclosed trailers, etc. will be checked for persons trying to gain access without paying admission fees.  Should you refuse to allow park security to inspect your camper, you will not be allowed enter the park.

13. NO UNAUTHORIZED VENDORS.  We welcome anyone who wants to come and ride and have never restricted any attendance. In past years we began to have guests who said they were just coming to ride and then proceeded to come and bring large trailers that were essentially a rolling billboard. Some even went down to the camping area and set up what amounted to a booth to promote their products. This is not a good situation for several reasons, the primary one being that there are many vendors paying for display space and it is unfair to them for these people to draw guests into the park rather than to the vendor areas.  For these reasons, we reserve the right to refuse admission at the gate to representatives of any business, competitor or not, where the pursuit of which is obvious from vehicles or trailers. In the event that one gets in unnoticed and is found later to be objectionable in our discretion or is found performing business operations without being an authorized vendor, will be asked to leave without refund.

14. High Lifter Products, Inc., Mud National Events, LLC and Mud Creek Off Road Park reserve the right to refuse admission or eject anyone without regards to race, sex or gender whose conduct is considered illegal, disorderly, or offensive by management.

 

15. All waivers completed prior to arriving at Mud Creek Off-Road Park MUST be notarized or a new waiver MUST be filled out in front of Mud Creek Off-Road Park staff.

I heard Mud-Toberfest was canceled.  Is that true?

Every year this same rumor is started and every year we make the same announcement. Mud-Toberfest has not been canceled nor will it be canceled.  It takes place every year rain or shine!

 

Where do I register for an event? 

Registrations for competitive events at Mud-Toberfest and information on Mud-Toberfest as a whole will be available in the tent located beside the High Lifter Retail store in the vendor area at the front of the park. You can also pre-register here at the website if you want to skip the sign-up line and save yourself some time and effort. 

 

What type of clothes do I need? 

Mud-Toberfest weather can being extremely varied and at any time it can be extremely dusty, windy, rainy, hot, cold, or muddy. Of course you always want to wear something comfortable, because a Mud-Toberfest day sure seems to last longer than normal one, as well as clothing and shoes that you don’t mind getting stained or dirty! Not to mention a few extra options just for a change out if your clothes are wet and/or uncomfortable. 

Here’s a brief list of what High Lifter employees have learned to come prepared with: 

  • Legs: Comfy jeans or shorts, waders, thermals
  • Feet: Heavy duty but comfortable boots (rain boots, waders, high-top hiking, work boots, or steel toed)
  • Torso: short and long sleeve shirts, a light but sturdy and warm wind breaker, rain poncho, thermals
  • Hands: Gloves (cold weather and/or riding)
  • Head: baseball or watch caps -- not to mention your helmet!

 

Forgot something? A lot of these items will be offered in the High Lifter store in the vendor area at the front of the park.

 

What kind of vendors/retailers will be there?

We have a complete list of vendor types that will be available at Mud-Toberfest listed in the Vendor menu on this site. Keep in mind that there are literally thousands of attendees and vendor supplies are usually limited to what they were able to haul out to Mud-Toberfest in their vehicles and/or trailers so don’t wait til the last minute to get that cool shirt you see in only one vendor stall! Supplies sell out faster than you think! 

 

Is there a place for my RV, camper, or tent? 

RV spots with hookups are typically sold out each year extremely fast so be sure to contact Mud Creek to find out when the best time will be to jump on a spot for the next year! Don’t be disappointed if you don’t get a spot with hookups, there are tons of acres of camping area available for self-contained campers, RVs, and tents – no reservation required, just come in and find a good spot to setup camp. 

Please Note: If you get there early enough to rope off an area for you and your friends, make sure you’re only roping off just what you need. Excessive roped off areas are likely to be removed if too large. 

 

Where should I go if I need some basic toiletries and camping supplies while at Mud-Toberfest? 

Jacksonville has several retailers you would normally see anywhere else so don’t be afraid to explore the town while you’re enjoying Mud-Toberfest, but before you run out to a local store for that toilet paper or other essential item be sure to stop by the High Lifter Retail store in the vendor area at the front of the park, we may have exactly what you need. As well as the normal parts and apparel that we usually offer, at Mud-Toberfest we also offer some basic convenience items and camping necessities to save you the time and effort of having to leave the park, find a store, wait in line to purchase, and then wait in line just to get back into the park! 

 

Are there showers and/or toilets? 

Mud Creek has stationary showers that are kept as clean as possible throughout the week and there will be a mobile shower available for your convenience as well although fees may apply. There are portable toilets placed throughout the park during this time. 

 

Are there phones available or cell service in the area? 

Anybody coming to the park needs to keep cell phones on, however please tell friends and family that they won’t always work due to the number of people that attend and therefore limited cell tower access. Please be mindful and considerate of this fact when using your phone at Mud-Toberfest and try to reduce cell phone usage if possible during this time. Due to the possibility of this ‘congestion’ we suggest you schedule a time with friends/family to check in as there is no way to locate anyone in the park if a family emergency happens and someone requests that we find you. 

 

Will I or my property be safe while attending Mud-Toberfest? 

Security and police officers will be on patrol in the campgrounds, parking areas, trails and vendor areas observing for any violation of park or High Lifter attendance rules and policies or other reckless, dangerous, or unlawful behavior. While attending Mud-Toberfest you are subject to all Texas laws. Don’t drink and drive, don’t litter, wear your seat belt while driving outside the park, etc. Make sure all items in your camping area are secured, take keys out of vehicles when parked. We ask that you respect others’ property and always be responsible when operating a vehicle in the park. 

 

Is alcohol allowed? 

Yes, however we have an alcohol policy that you should be familiar with before attending:

Attendance at Mud-Toberfest has grown to the point that traffic is frequently congested, and there is a growing concern for safety by High Lifter, sponsors, and participants. As an effort to improve safety there will be NO DRINKING OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES WHILE RIDING ATVS, RUVs, MOTORCYCLES , or other motorized vehicles, on any property belonging to Mud Creek Offroad Park during Mud-Toberfest. No open container containing an alcoholic beverage will be allowed in possession of a person operating or as a passenger of a motor vehicle. 

This policy does not prohibit consumption of alcoholic beverages in campsites or when not riding. It also does not require inspection of ice chests. It is simply an effort to improve safety and decrease the potential for accidents. 

 

Can I ride to the vendor areas? 

Yes you can ride to the vendor areas however riding through them is not allowed. Please park your transportation just outside the boundaries of the vendor area and enjoy strolling through on foot instead. This is enforced for everyone’s safety and to allow full uninhibited access to all vendors equally. 

 

Will High Lifter’s Retail store still be open in Shreveport?

Our location in Shreveport will remain open during regular business hours during the event.

    

The place to get muddy in the fall.

 

High Lifter Products, based in Shreveport, Louisiana, is well-known in the off-road riding community for their annual ATV Mud Nationals at Mud Creek Off-Road Park in Jacksonville, Texas.  

 

Now, High Lifter and Mud Creek have added another fantastic mud-riding event to their annual calendars with Mud-Toberfest. This family-friendly event features four days filled with events such as the obstacle course challenge and poker run, chili cookoff, live music, OEM and industry vendors, delicious concessions, and more!  

 

We look forward to bringing our own families to this awesome fall ride every year and we can't wait to see you on the trails!
