Boggy Creek Monster

We took a 2.5 hr detour just to visit the home of the Boggy Creek Monster, after having rented the ol '72 movie Legend of Boggy Creek a few days prior. My wife and I appreciate stuff like this and we, along with our three young children, love road trips and roadside attractions. Our kids loved this stop. The Monster Mart has lots of good photo ops with the murals and the cut out. They have some neat souvenirs. We bought a bottle of Boggy Creek Water, coffee cup, and a Boggy Creek Monster plastered footprint. We even got directions from the lady at the store and drove out to the infamous Boggy Creek.

Boggy Creek crosses Hwy 71 about a mile south from the Monster Mart. There is no identification sign, however, on the south approach there is a plaque.

Visited the Boggy Creek Monster today! Our kids enjoyed it. Nice to finally say we've seen the Monster Store! [JennGreer, 03/20/2013]
Monster Mart

Fun place to visit while driving through. The Monster Mart owner was really helpful. There is a painting inside with props set up for your own photo-op, as well as the outside wall painting and the wood figure you can stick your head through. They sold magnets, T-shirts, movies, post cards. We even bought a sample of water straight from Boggy Creek!
