Tshirt Shack

Tail of the Dragon began at the Calderwood Dam Overlook in the summer of 2000. Ron and Nancy Johnson began selling T-shirts out of an Easy-up Tent. We loved the work that brought many friends into our lives and it was the start of an adventure that is still unfolding.

We opened our original T-shirt Shack at the intersection of US 129 and NC 28 in 2006 and were finally able to build a real T-shirt Shack Store in 2012. We added our new Big Metal Dragon Calestar in 2013. He has been a real hit.

Tail of the Dragon offers you the highest quality items featuring our exclusive art work. These items are the perfect souvenirs to mark your ride at the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Devils Triangle, Moonshiner28, Diamondback and the twisties of Six Gap North Georgia.

Every year just seems to get better. Come see us and be ready to have some fun on all the great roads in our area.

Open from March through October, 9am – 6pm.
