Cove Creek WMA
Cove Lake is situated in a picturesque Valley surrounded by the towering Cumberland Mountains, and it is the winter home for some four hundred (400) Canada geese. The geese are attracted by quiet inlets, marshes, and fields of this area. They come in late fall and stay through early spring. Many visitors come to the park during the winter time just to see the geese. This serene valley was once inhabited by ancient Americans. Mound builders, as they were called, prospered along Cove Creek from 1000 to 1200 A. D. The University Of Tennessee excavated their mounds and habitation sites in 1937. Raised earthen remnants of one Mound are still visible at the end of “Duck Island”. Cove Lake State Park is located in East Tennessee’s Campbell County, 30 miles northwest of Knoxville. On U. S. 25-W and I-75.
Royal Blue WMA
(423) 566-8557 Just off Exit 141 on Interstate 75, Royal Blue Management Area features over fifty three thousand (53,000) acres of mountain forests with elevations reaching to three thousand two hundred (3,200) feet. It is home to a substantial population of whitetail deer, wild turkeys, beavers, and squirrels, an occasional black bear and now elk. The recent reintroduction of elk to the area has brought much excitement and more are to be released in the near future. Numerous ponds provide water for the land animals and also draw blue gill fisherman, Canada geese and great blue herons. Many other species of birds are prevalent in the area. Over six hundred (600) miles of roads, many blazed when the area was mined and logged, now entice riders of mountain bikes and off-highway vehicles (ohv’s) to experience nature rebuilding itself. Royal Blue WMA is open year round to the public. User fees are required for the use of off-highway vehicles. Fees can be paid at any location that sells hunting and/or fishing license. Visitors to the area are randomly checked and fines may result in noncompliance.
(423) 566-8557.Seventy-four thousand (74,000) acres of mountain land and high pastures, known as the Sundquist Wildlife Management Area, provides a home to a growing population of reintroduced elk, white tails, grouse, turkeys, and non-game bird species in addition to aquatic species. Collectively with the Royal Blue WMA, the newly acquired land is known as the Cumberland Forrest and has been officially placed under the ownership of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts now have one hundred twenty seven thousand (127,000) acres to roam. Such a continuous expanse of forest land that is saved for wildlife but also available for public use is rare indeed. This vast expanse of forest provides important habitat for several rare and endangered species, both terrestrial and aquatic. Recent surveys of the area indicate that the project area harbors the most significant breeding population of golden-winged warblers in the southeastern United States. Visitors to the area may, also witness several other species of rare songbirds. Off highway vehicles are allowed; however, a user fee is required and may be obtained wherever hunting and/or fishing license are sold. For more information concerning the wildlife management areas.
