The Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort is located at Deals Gap, North Carolina and is nestled deep in the Great Smoky Mountains on the NC/TN state line. We are also known to many as Deals Gap, the home of "The Dragon" or simply by the locals as "the Gap". We hope that our website will provide you with helpful & useful information about the resort and surrounding southern region of the Appalachian mountains.
The resort is open March 1st (before Daytona Bike Week) through Late November and provides you with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay overnight or a quick fuel up to get back on our twisty roads. With the world famous Dragon literally outside our doorstep, you can encounter one of the most technical & challenging roads in the country. Of course, people come to the attraction of 318 curves in 11 miles, but they soon discover all the best kept secrets of the many great roads leading you here. Like the land that time forgot, you will not find any driveways, gas stations, subdivisions, or mini malls. In place of all the hustle & bustle of big city life, you will find many scenic & beautiful places to stop & take time to soak in all the natural beauty that our area has to offer.
Without a doubt, you will have one of the best motorcycling experiences one could have. The staff here at DGMR is committed to helping you in planning & experiencing one of the best vacations that you will ever have!
It's getting on to that time of year, so get your Dragon burgers and stay the night while you can for the 2014 riding season. Dates to know:
Enter now to be the photo or video winner for October 2014. Kamala Strohmeyer was our photo winner for the September 2014 contest. We had no video entries, so no video winner…somebody missed an easy win! Remember…if you don't play, you can't win! If you haven't been before, go to our contest page for all the details.
Blount County Rescue Squad posted a rescue truck on The Dragon every Saturday and Sunday through October 2013 (story and video on ABC WATE). By having them located directly onsite, it reduced response times to emergencies by at least 30 minutes and allowed them to be on the scene of an emergency in less than five minutes.
The rescue squad is staffed strictly by volunteers - they have no paid members - and their funding comes solely from private donations. They receive no government funding. Please help the Blount County Rescue Squad do this again for the 2014 riding season by donating through PayPal?
