Coal Creek OHV Mountain
Breaking news..... The staff of OffroadUSAtrails.com has declared Coal
Creek number one riding area (East of Rockies)!
Coal Creek OHV area is the best kept secret in eastern Tennessee. I found
this dirt bike and ATV off-roading park surfing the web and it turned out to be one of the best areas I have ever ridden anywhere. I stayed there for over three weeks and I gotta tell you it is awesome. The ATV trails are varied from mild to
extreme, with several steep rocky climbs if you are into that. Jeeps, ATV's and dirt bikes are all welcome here.
The folks their offer genuine southern hospitality and charm and they could not do enough to make your stay more fun and pleasant. It is open 365 days a year (I went there
in Jan-Feb 2008) but can get a bit chilly in the winter, but not un-ride able. This area is an active coal, oil and gas mining area that is nice
enough to let ATV off roaders ride its great trails (formerly mining roads). If you don't ride anywhere else this year... Ride here. I know I plan to be back in the fall and again next winter.
There are several campgrounds to stay at in the area:
has now opened there own campground and it is awesome.... On top of a
hill with access to the mountain.... Just ride your ATV or dirt bike
directly from your campsite. I priced out the different campgrounds
and the new campground at Coal Creek Mountain was the best deal on the
mountain. Plus being at the top of the hill you have a good TV
and cell phone signal.
Windrock Campground is located approximately 2 miles from the ATV trail head. You can ride your ATV or dirt bike straight from the campground to the trail head without having to trailer your off road vehicle. Very poor cell phone signal
(like non-existent) here though.
Indian Creek Campground
is just west of the mountain and you can ride your dirt bike or ATV
right from your camp site...
