Boggy Creek Monster

Monster Mart is still going strong in 2021, with really friendly staff, good exhibits, and a great selection of t-shirts and Boggy Creek Monster-related souvenirs (in addition to pizza and a convenience store).

Monster Days are held in Fouke around Fathers Day, with many cryptid enthusiasts in attendance, and book signings at the store. Just 2 miles south from the store, US 71 crosses over Boggy Creek, with a "Boggy Creek" sign on the northbound approach (but not the southbound lane).

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.
