Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area, Sundquist Unit, Cumberland Mountains, Campbell County, New River, Tackett Creek OHV, Royal Blue East

Last Known StatusOpen

This family oriented ATV resort is the perfect place to set up base camp to explore the North Cumberland WMA, a popular 900+ mile trail system. Most trails are marked and rated for difficulty can be used to form long scenic loops. Some of the many things to discover are large boulder formations, abandoned mines and even a few waterfalls.

The impressive resort offers both rustic and furnished cabins, 31 RV sites with full hookups and plenty of tent sites. The property also has a general store that carries ATV accessories, groceries, ice, firewood, trail maps and riding permits.

Other amenities include a recreation room with a pool table and board games, an outdoor volleyball court and a restaurant. First timers are welcome and ATV and UTV rentals are available.
