The Tellico ORV Area is a fee access area. The cost is $5.00 per day/vehicle payable at the Forest Service entrance station. The station is operated on the honor system, so you will need to have correct change
although they do accept checks. The money collected stays in the area to help maintain Tellico.
Camping is permitted at Tellico. There are existing campsites on many of the trails,
many near stream crossings. Other campgrounds include
State Line Campground at the Tenn/NC border, and the
Crawfords, which is a unique commercial campground that caters to the
off-roader, has a shop with welder and is only a few miles from the entrance.
