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!

The Dragon is almost always in the top 10 of any list discussing the best driving roads in America. We already knew that. But to make the Top 20 in the world? Well, that is something special! Check it out at Road and Track!
Once again, the Dragon has been recognized as one of the top five motorcycle roads in the South and in the US. In both lists, the Dragon ranks #2 in top motorcycle roads. And, along with the Dragon, the Cherohala Skyway ranks at #3, and the Blue Ridge Parkway ranks at #4. Of course, we know there's not a bad road in the area! You just have to come and ride them all to know what we've always known.
DGMR is featured in this series! Sweet! They did two days of filming with us. Can't wait to see the final cut! Thanks Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead! We had a great time having you here at the resort and welcome you back any time, no matter whether it is for filming or just visiting. For TWD and Norman Reedus fans (and maybe those that want to watch because of their beloved DGMR/The Dragon too) here's more info on the 2016 AMC reality series called Ride with Norman Reedus.
