We have stopped here several times while riding our motorcycles between Robbinsville, NC and Tellico Plains, TN. It is a nice little Welcome Center to rest for a few minutes. The only drawback is the driveway is chunky gravel, which is a nightmare for motorcycles.

We hold our gold prospecting club meetings here. They have cabins to rent, gold panning in Coker Creek, and a great chow hall. A great place for groups to spend the night or weekend.

Being a life long resident of Coker Creek I rarely need a welcome center. The one we have is standard for Tennessee or even the southeast of our country. Small souvenirs and some information is what you get.

The staff is very helpful. They will direct you to Coker Falls and get you any information that you need. The gift shop has items made locally that are awesome. Wish we had more room in our trunk.
