Another of the Natchez Trace’s three free campgrounds. There are 32 spots available. As I’ve been traveling in the off season, hardly any spots taken. Spot 25 was lovely, closer to the restroom and afforded good light in the cold morning, making breakfast at the picnic table, which was very clean, and had the leaves blown off from under and around it.

Report Check-In

Off-season, so there were only a couple RVs, bikers, and tent-campers. Easy off the Pkwy, nice trails and restrooms. Stayed 2 nights, sites are smaller, and not particularly level, but we had no trouble finding a spot for our 25' trailer.

Very beautiful campground with lots of trees and shade. Free dry camping and you can stay up to 14 days. Such a peaceful place until that one guy has to fire up his generator and run it all night. lol

It’s open now and very pretty with the Fall colors.

Campground has beautiful trees and little understory. I arrived late and left early but it was quiet and I would have enjoyed spending more time here. My visit was early fall, and there were a number of other campers there, but plenty of open spots too. I had a nice pull-through spot.

Nice place to camp. Lots of trees so shade will block solar. Has both back in and pull through spots

Stayed on a Wednesday. Nice and quiet. Tent sites, Van or short RV sites and several pull through sights. Got here at 4pm and pretty much had my pick. Trails down to the monument and some of the original Natchez Trace can be walked. Best of the three Natchez Trace Parkway camping.

Nice camping along the Natchez trace parkway. Open as of 4/23/21. Multiple sites, dry camping, bathroom on site.

I just wanted to add a note that the campground was closed when I arrived today due to “an emergency” the entrance had barricades and no other information was available. We had to drive another hour south to the ferry port.

Super clean, serene, and peaceful campsite. FREE. On old Natchez Trace. Beautiful trees surround the campsites. Each site has a table, covered trashcan, and fire ring/grill. Trees perfect for hanging a hammock. Very quiet with exception to some passerby’s looking for a site and the birds. I give it an A- just because there isn’t a river to jump in right close. It’s hot.

Very nice campground for free. Established sites with tables, trash cans, and fire pits. Some pull through, some back in. Most not entirely level. Running water toilets and sink-very clean. Camp host with very sweet cat. Pretty busy on a Friday night in April but still several open spots in the morning. We walked down the road to the picnic area right on the creek at the end of the road. Very nice. Highly recommended.

Beautiful free campground. Clean restrooms but no shower. Potable water available as well.
Sites are all far from one another which is great.
We stayed there one night and the campsite was pretty much empty.
Really good place to stay for free.
