Trail’s End Restaurant and Crockett’s Tavern Have Reopened at Fort Wilderness and We are Pleased with the Result

Trail’s End at Fort Wilderness is now open as a quick-service restaurant that, at first look, appears to be a better update than many were expecting.

The marketplace concept now includes an on-stage pizza station where you can satisfy your appetite with a slice or the entire pie (remember those make your own pizza days back in the day?). New pizza options include a smokehouse-style pizza topped with house-smoked brisket, sausage, and pepperoni and a roasted vegetable pie. The classic pepperoni and cheese pizzas are still available.

The Hot Grab and Go section features pecan-smoked whole chicken or brisket, and a rack of pork ribs. Fort Wilderness' iconic fried chicken is still on the menu as well. Sides are available by the pound including macaroni & cheese, plant-based cowboy beans, and mashed potatoes.
Other offerings include cheeseburgers, plant-based vegetable burgers, chicken nuggets, and french fries. Homestyle Meals feature cornbread, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes with gravy and your choice of half a slab of barbecued ribs or two pieces of fried chicken. Rounding it all out is hand-scooped ice cream and specialty coffees, like the Wilderness Latte of chocolate and hazelnut.

Light fresh offerings to grab and go include a new Chicken Wrap featuring a new house-made blueberry BBQ sauce or the returning favorite Pioneer Berry Salad.

On the sweet side, new items and returning favorites are house-made. The pastry team dusted off old favorite recipes from years past like the Banana Pudding, Carrot Cake Cupcake, Blueberry Bread Pudding, and the popular Strawberry Shortcake from Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, which will be available in a single serve portion. The plant-based Lemon-Blueberry Trifle is filled with layers of lemon curd, fresh blueberries, and whipped 'cream.'

Also new, the pastry team has brand-new recipes like the Fort Fruity Cookie featuring fruity cereal and white chocolate chips or the Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcake. There are also two sweets inspired by the classic campfire favorite: a S'more Cupcake and a S'mores Cookie.
Crockett’s Tavern has also been refreshed as a lounge with expanded seating, both indoors and out. Here you'll find elevated lounge-style snacks to accompany the new and returning beverages and specialty cocktails.

This new menu pays tribute to the heritage of Fort Wilderness and takes "its inspiration from the American frontier." 

The menu has A Trio of Sliders (a pulled pork slider with BBQ sauce and coleslaw, a brisket slider with Carolina BBQ and pickled onions, and a buffalo chicken slider with house-made blue cheese dressing and dill pickles) and is served with seasoned french fries.

For the new Chicken Bites you can pick a favorite sauce including buffalo, garlic-parmesan, or blueberry BBQ. These bites are served with celery, house-made ranch, blue cheese, and seasoned french fries. The Charcuterie Board option has a selection of meats and cheeses with house-made bread and butter pickles, tomato jam, cornbread crostini, and sesame lavash.

New plant-based offerings include Crispy Cauliflower paired with a tasty garlic aïoli. This fan-favorite from the Hoop-Dee-Doo is also gluten/wheat friendly. You can also try the plant-based fried green tomato sliders featuring a southern remoulade and citrus greens served with seasoned fries.

The Trailblazin' Dessert Trio features a s’more with chocolate pudding, graham cracker crumbs, and house-made marshmallow, a strawberry shortcake with strawberries and whipped cream, and a banana pudding with vanilla wafers, whipped cream, and a banana chip.

Adult beverages pay homage to the resort's 50+ year history. Inspired by the Fort Wilderness Railroad that once ran throughout the resort, the All Aboard! Moonshine Cocktail Flight is a sampling of three moonshine cocktails: the Gullywhumper, Blackberry Lightning, and Spiced Appleberry Shine.

The Bear-y Buckle combines Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey, pure cane sugar, lemon juice, bitters, Fever-Tree Ginger Beer, and muddled blackberries for a touch a sweetness in this cocktail. The team is pleased to be serving Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey.
Ever wanted to try America’s first spirit, Laird’s Applejack Brandy? If so, the Camper’s Coupe is for you. This drink features Laird’s Applejack Brandy, orange and lemon juices, and a hint of maple syrup.

For bright and refreshing flavors try the Meadows Cup. This twist on a cocktail classic has Pimm’s No. 1 Liqueur Cup, Hendrick’s Gin, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, and strawberry.

If you like old fashioneds, the bark serves up a rotating selection of old fashioned cocktails throughout the year. The summer version is a Clementine Old Fashioned with Angel's Envy Bourbon, Hella Cocktail Co. Orange Bitters, and cane syrup garnished with a clementine wheel and Luxardo cherry. This is a nod to Clementine Beach at the resort.

Tequila fans have two options on the menu. A nod to one of the historic camping loops at Fort Wilderness, the Quail Trail Paloma serves up Teremana Blanco Tequila with Hella Cocktail Co. Smoked Chili Bitters, grapefruit soda, and a chili-lime rim. And, of course, you’ll still be able to enjoy the porch sippin’ favorite – the Moonshine Margarita with Ole Smoky White Lightnin’ Moonshine, Triple Sec Liqueur, sweet-and-sour mix, and lime juice.
