I have not stayed there, but we have stayed on the NC side of the Dragon at the Two Wheel Inn.

It is a nice place.

I stay there, usually in one of the bunk houses because it's cheap. The lodge itself is very, very nice and the setting is hard to beat. However, there is very little cell service if that's important to you; they do have wifi. It's near Stecoah, NC

I camped there last year while on a trip around the smokies. Very very nice, the lodge and grounds are beautiful. Honestly its a little more upscale then I care for but thats just me, its like the hilton for bikers. Food served was great and the staff were super friendly. I would stay there again and if i go to the smokies again this year Im sure ill be staying at iron horse just for one night. Now if I can make a recommendation heres my favorite place to camp around the blue ridge/smokies. This place is much more my style, laid back and not so fancy.

Does the restaurant serve alcohol? If not, can I get a 6 pak close by to take to a room or is it a dry county? Thanks in advance for any info.

They do not; it's not really a restaurant, it's a lodge (no rooms for sleeping) and a kitchen. If you want beer, you'll need to get it at the crossroads 129 & 28. If you want wine/beer you'll need to go to the Topoco Lodge. If you want more than that, you'll need to bring it. As far as mixers all they have is pop machines. Make no mistake, it's in the sticks; all the places I mentioned are a good ride to get to; no place is close in terms of time. Staying in Robbinsville isn't really a solution for the alcohol thing; the liquor laws are very funny down there.

When i was there last I was told it is in a dry county. I had with me a bottle of JD and bought the coke from the soda machine and had jd/coke all night. I stayed in one of the rooms with own bathroom. i think it was 100 night. Its a good central location for trips in any direction. Lots of clubs book it up early so you would need to call early as well to get a room. I tented there on my last trip. I want to try a few other campgrounds in the area next like others have said.

12 years ago that was a dry county..... and after spending a day riding.... the sound of a beer opening would attract all sorts of new friends.... LOL....
We're big on Bryson City , (about 20 miles east) for dinner.... plus there's adult beverages..... just remember to bring extra.......
