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 off-road 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.

This impressive resort offers both rustic and furnished cabins, 100 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.

Four people using a tow rope and winch to pull ATV from deep rut.

It's a good idea to bring a winch, tow rope and a few extra friends just in case you need to pull an ATV over a rough section.

No matter the season, the rolling hills and forest views are amazing. There are numerous scenic view points, so bring the camera.

With over 900 miles of ATV trails, bring some tools and a few spare parts. You never know when you may need to repair the suspension or replace a tire.
