The Ridges at Royal Blue

Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area, Sundquist Unit, Cumberland Mountains, Campbell County, Stinking Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This new campground offers direct access to the pristine North Cumberland WMA, a 900+ multiple use trail system with long loops that go near unique landmarks, waterfalls, mud pits plus with beautiful panoramic views of the Appalachian Mountains. This is a large trail system, so plan to stay at least a few days!

The campground is bordered by a scenic creek, trees and grassy meadows and offers both back in and pull through sites with full hookups. All sites are graveled and come with a picnic table and fire ring. Amenities include a bathhouse and laundry room. Currently only RV sites are available but their sister property Ride Royal Blue Resort and Campground is a short distance away and offers plenty of tent sites.

Visitors should note that a TWRA Permit is required to ride the North Cumberland WMA Trails, which can be purchased online prior to entry.
