Duramtown Tellico aug 28,29,30th Report

I emailed her. Basically an over view of what we liked and disliked. Things won't get better if they don't know. After talking with another employee at the front desk I have a feeling things will stay the same as far as the camping fees are concerned. I told her it's going to be a tough sale when the prices get in the neighborhood of hotel rooms or exceed other parks with a shower facility. We shall see.

I compared their fees to crawfords, especially cabins. Crawfords has 4 person cabins with heat and ac for $30, theirs are $60. You pay for convenience to the trails, but still high...

The cabins at Durhamtown isnt really a convenience for me. If Joey hadnt had his truck with us it woulda been a big PITA to get everything back there. I sent them an email as well about a few things.

If I go back I prob be in a cabin, its only $2.50 a night more than camping and I pack a lot lighter. I will stay at the park because l love the night rides, can't do that staying in town.

I got a reply email from Christie. She said they are working on the camping prices but it would still be per-person. She also mentioned a cabin that sleeps at least 9 and it's $150 a night.

I got a reply also. She mentioned the camping prices and that they would try to have someone else up front to help with traffic.

There is the 'Clubhouse' on the other end of the main road. Maybe that's available?

Oh yea y'all missed out on that drive out in the rain with no windshield wipers
I had to do it with no windshield to get George from the gate when he loaded up his rig. Not the most fun, but I did enjoy camping back on the trail and that first night of wheeling was worth every penny I spent going up there. That run up around the bowl once it rained was just a bonus.

We wheeled the first night?

Crawfords is 10 miles, 20-30 minute drive.

There is a statement about the camping and towing trailers to the sites on their websitr. It says if you have any concerns, call.

I got an email this morning from them saying we are new and want all the feedback we can get. Everyone that went should reply, good or bad. Say that you thought the camping price was high, recommended a per site fee, etc.

As far as trail riding price goes, you have 3,000 acres and 40+ miles of trails for the same price per day as gulches. Nothing against gulches, but it all depends on what kind of riding we want to do.
I will eventually check them out. A friend has a cabin in Hayesville so I'll likely stay there if they have parking for my truck and trailer depending on fees. Thanks for the info. I'm always looking for a place closer to my TN wheeling friends that I can do a weekend trip with. This might be the place eventually.

I'd personally rather see multiple things but with that said MMORV is awful close and I love that place.
MMORV? Morris Mountain in Alabama? I'll probably never return there.
