ddn-reschedule

As promised we have been following the river’s current and predicted levels.  The river was originally supposed to crest at 15.8 feet.  It is now predicted crest Friday/Saturday at 21-22 feet.  Due to the change in forecast and in anticipation of some minor flooding we have decided to reschedule Mud Bash.  Instead of being held this weekend it will now take place on June 8-10.  The office personnel will be contacting everyone with reservations to give them the opportunity to move their reservation or to offer a refund.  Busco will still be open this weekend with regular pricing in place and we will continue to monitor the river’s forecast.  We know there will be a lot of questions so please be patient as we begin making sure everyone is aware of the change.  Please feel free to forward this message if you know of someone who is not on Facebook or who does not check the website!

 

Thank you all in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

As of now Busco will be closed thru Wednesday. If the river recedes before we may open sooner; if it recedes later opening will be delayed. We are staying to keep eye on the park and the campers that are parked by the house. We will continue to post updates. Thank you all for your patience! We look forward to seeing you all soon! ...

The river crossed the road in the middle of the night. The saturated ground led to river plus rain water flooding meeting at the turn past the bridge down to the White House before you get to the field (not the Busco white house.) we are advising everyone to get out now and not to come as the water is already 1ft deep on the road. We are so sorry. All of the campers that were moved are fine and currently in no danger. We will be back in the park within an hr to assess the park and take pictures. As soon as we have more information we will post. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning. Jimmy and I and all of the employees have been diligently monitoring the forecasts and the water levels in the park. At this time we are asking everyone in the A, B, C, D and E sections to move their campers. We are also telling all tent campers to move to the big field across from the white house. The trails in the rear of the park are under water and the trails by the power lines are also under water. We still do not know when the river will crest or on what day. By Monday the projected level is 23.7 ft. By Sat and into Sunday it's predicted to be at 22 ft. We are still open; however, we are advising that you come at your own discretion. If the conditions get too dangerous we will close the park and issue refunds for the days/nights that you have paid for. We appreciate all of our guests and members and want to stay safe.

I am aware there have been many negative comments posted and to address a couple of these:
1. We decided to continue with the band to provide those that are coming with some entertainment.
2. Mud Bash was canceled before anything else due to the inability to pump out the mud pits used for the Mud Races. We did not feel it was fair to charge you for something you would not be getting.
3. We decided to remain open to give you the opportunity to come and ride as we know many of you have had this planned since December.
4. We are grateful Outback was able to plan another event to accommodate those who decided to go elsewhere with the threat of flooding. As riders we should all respect and support one another.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we truly appreciate your understanding and support.

We will continue to follow the forecasts and observe the river levels and keep you informed.

Following this post I will post the link to the site I use to follow the levels and pictures I was able to take at 6:00am this morning.

Thank you again for your support.

Happy (and rainy) Monday!!!

Busco Beach is affected in no way until the river reaches at at least 18 ft. Also, we are keeping an hourly watch on this and will continue to do so. As of now this is perfect weather for a precursor to "MudBash" as the mud should be plentiful and less dusty! We look forward to seeing you all soon!

DESIGNED FOR RIDERS OF ALL AGES

Our trail systems are changing daily due to conditions of the land and vary from mud pits, water crossings, hill climbs, and hard packed wood trails. ATVs and motorcycles are welcome, however we do not allow trucks or jeeps on the trails or riding in the rivers.

“Great time, close to home. If you have never been go check it out at least once.”
