Georgia’s Durhamtown Off Road Resort made the shock announcement Tuesday that it has closed its doors, effective immediately. The front page of the park’s website and a post on its Facebook page broke the news today:

“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”

The news was met with disbelief, shock, and sadness by the resort’s Facebook community. The news came seemingly without warning. There were no indications before this week that anything was amiss, and the page was dotted with come-ons for a New Year’s Eve party, and pictures of riders on the trails as recently as last week. On Monday, the resort posted that it would be closed for the day after losing power in a winter storm that slammed the Southeast.

Durhamtown was a premier OHV destination that offered miles of excellent trails, powersports rentals, camping, cabins, and other activities to powersports recreationalists. 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.
