Places to Camp and Ride in East Tennessee - Trails End Campground, Huntsville Tn

Trails End Campground is located in Huntsville, Tennessee, right at the trail entry into the Brimstone Off-Road Recreation Area and the TWRA managed North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Basically you have access to aver 140,000 acres of trails. You can ride directly out of your campsite, no need to trailer to the trailhead. The Brimstone Riding area, and the TWRA area are both pay to ride areas, and under separate management, so you will need a permit for each, or whichever one you decide to ride.

Trails End has 26 RV sites with full hookups, as well as lots of primitive (no hookup) sites. The campground is set on a 140 Acre farm, so unless it is  one of the 2 weekends a year when there is a large event going on (check their schedule), there is plenty of space for privacy.

For more information check out their website.

Places to camp and ride in East Tennessee - Brimstone Recreation Area

The Brimstone Recreation Area is located in Huntsville Tn, and over the past 10 years has evolved into one of the more popular riding areas in the East. The Brimstone riding area is privately leased land, with over 300 miles of trails. The trails on the Brimestone area also connect to adjacent lands, some of which are public gravel roads, and some that are part of the TWRA Wildlife management area (which requires a seperate permit).
Brimstone recently opened up not just a campground, with full hookups, but also rental cabins and campers. All of which are located at the start of the trail system.
Reservations are recommended.Their website is
