You Can't Always Trust Your GPS

I know some of you have seen the big sign in Sevierville warning you that your GPS is wrong. Well, it was brought to our attention at our last festival that those of you approaching us from the East and traveling West on I-40 may be routed off I-40 at the wrong exit. When you come to Dumplin Valley exit the interstate at #407 no matter which direction you are traveling. That is the quickest and most direct route to get here. We are a short 1 1/2 mile from Highway 66 (the road you will be on after you exit the interstate). When you get off the exit, head toward the McDonald's on the north side of the exit. That is East Dumplin Valley Road and we are at 525 East Dumplin Valley Road. This road runs parallel to I-40 and is easy to navigate. If you have any questions, please call us: 865-397-7942. BUT don't trust that GPS lady if she starts telling you to "turn here" or starts telling you to turn around when you go by the other exit. You want to exit at 407; turn toward the north side of I-40; take the first right (East Dumplin Valley Road); travel 1 1/2 miles and we will be on your left. It's pretty simple. But it won't be if you take the wrong exit.............just ask the Lonesome River Band's bus driver!
