While Cooter’s Place spent many years with the Duke fans in Gatlinburg, this unique attraction has officially relocated to the Shops of Pigeon Forge! This location features a museum with a replica of the interior of Cooter’s Hazzard County Garage, which has been completely decked out with props to appear exactly like it did on the show. Cooter’s in Pigeon Forge is also building a replica of the Hazzard County Sheriff’s Office for some awesome fan photos when Enos and Cletus come to visit. The best part is admission to the museum is completely free!

2. General Lee Photos

One of the highlights of Cooter’s Place in Pigeon Forge is the General Lee, the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger driven in the television series! While it is a thrill to see this famous vehicle in person, you will be even more excited to know you can purchase a photo package with the General Lee! This is your big chance to have a picture taken while you are actually sitting inside the General Lee at Cooter’s in Pigeon Forge!
