    Welcome to the Nation, Dave. Do you have a better landmark for your future location? Your address doesn't come up on Google Maps yet.

    One heck of a workhorse, looking for mud flares to keep the mud at bay.

    Thanks!!!

    Tons of truck trails in the Sundquist side, stop by if you have a chance!!!!

    The white trails on this map should be wide enough for trucks.

    Sorry for the delay, my daughter got married on Nov 16 and I've been terribly busy since!!
    More options were definitely needed!!!

    There is so much camping business within 30 minutes of our campground that are jammed packed all summer long, zero vacancies at the usual campgrounds on TWRA North Cumberland, Norris Lake and I-75.

    I'd say we're in addition to the existing campgrounds. We can't afford to lowball and we aren't interested in taking any business that we don't earn.

    Tons of maps.
    On our website
    ROYAL BLUE UNIT - Eagle Campground


    I have links to several different maps.
    My favorite is by far is the google earth overlay.

    https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/twra/documents/North_Cumberland_OHV_BW_2016_final_front_back.pdf
    This is a printable map for the Sundquist side only, I don't know of one available for the west side of the interstate. now, that being said, there is a good week or two of hard riding on the Sundquist (east) side. Some of the trails are gravel roads and some are sporty as hell.


    First, let me say that I am dumb.
    After all of the contractors head home I go out night riding solo for a couple of hours in the dark.
    This past week I got stuck in a Jeep rutted out trail 8 which I've been through before but not after a week of rain.

    I text a couple of screenshots of the different apps on my iPhone to my friends coming out to retrieve me and they knew exactly where I was at. Still took them 3 1/2 hours but I was grateful that the made the trip out.

    Goad Motorsports is installing a 4500 lb winch this coming week. ;)
