Amazing place. Its been under new management/ownership for about a year now, so if you were here before, you'll love the upgrades. If you're looking for a safe, clean, happy campground or cabin rental in the Tellico Plains area, this is the spot.
Wayne & Kelly (owners) live on site and manage the resort, and are happy to be there.
Clean, small cabin rentals that are perfect for people needing a base camp to explore the area.
At the foot of The Cherohala Skyway. Near Bald Mtn Falls, The Dragon Tail & Moonshiners 28
Clean showers & bathrooms with towels & washclothes provided...even for tent campers
Fresh fruit, coffee and pastries are free, high quality and available when the camp store/registration/breakfast area is open.
Well stocked camp store with Backpacker's Pantry meals & anything else you might need.
Beautiful gazebo with a gas grill for all guests.
They have an area for bike repairs & a trailer
It wasn't a one-brand motorcycle campground--lots of different bike brands & styles.
The low lying land brought in the fog & dew. Not that that can be helped, but I'm trying to come up with some cons here.
The fresh baked from scratch triple cinnamon scones ruined my plans to hit the Tellico Grains Bakery.
They need a sign on 39 signaling the location.
This was a great recommendation from a local shop owner, and I'll be back. It can handle LARGE groups & small ones, which is nice. It'll now be my basecamp when I ride in the area, letting me spend more time out on the trails and less time getting there. Its close to great food: the B & B gas station/cathead biscuit place, Tellico Grains Bakery, The log cabin mexican place in town, Tellicafe. I had great plans to eat my way through town, but was very happy to munch on what they offered. The prices were unbelievable.
