Rider Resources

To our guests;
In order to stay abreast of the constant updating of information regarding the coronavirus situation, we want to stay transparent with our guests and share the cleaning steps we are taking to keep our guests, staff and facilities safe.
We are following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as our local health organizations. And while there are no reported cases of the virus in our area, we are taking preventive measures to keep our stores, cabins, restrooms and restaurant clean, sanitized and striving to maintain a healthy environment.
All buildings are cleaned thoroughly with sanitizing solutions and public restrooms are cleaned three times daily and are stocked with soap, towels and sanitizing sprays for guests use.  We have increased our focus with staff on cleaning and have dedicated a staff member to inspect key areas throughout the day.
Thanks for the opportunity to host you, your friends and family.  Rest assured, we are doing everything we can to provide a safe environment for your adventure.

Ride Royal Blue ATV Resort Information & Rules

Before you visit, make sure to read our general information and rules.

Note: As enthusiasts of off-road riding, we plead with everyone to please take pride in the privilege we all enjoy in these beautiful mountains—including carrying out all trash! It ruins everyone's experience and the future of our parks to see litter on the trail system. Together, with your help, we can carry on sharing these adventures with future generations.

OHV Area Information & Requirements

The Royal Blue, Sundquist, New River, and Tackett Creek OHV areas consist of over 200,000 acres and are accessible directly from our Campground.

Safety Orange apparel is required on the head and chest of each rider during hunting season, which runs from the last week of October to the second week of January. Safety hats and vests can be purchased from our General Store.

TWRA requires that helmets be worn by children under the age of 18 while riding. Ride Royal Blue staff will enforce the use of helmets for children on the resort grounds. Children should only operate age appropriate machines and the resort does not allow children to cruise the campground. Safety is paramount at Ride Royal Blue and we strongly suggest the use of helmets for everyone.
