Natchez Trace KOA is not a typical KOA. It seems like they have partnered with Thousand Trails who sells camp sites in the Natchez Trace Wilderness Preserve. KOA people check you in, give you a map that shows the section where they have 81 KOA sites of the advertised 653 sites, and they tell you "take any one". It is a mile or so over broken, pot holed asphalt. Up on a ridge. Far away from the lake, store, facilities, amenities. Sites are water (20 PSI) and electric (106 volts under load), concrete patio, table, and grill. Wash-outs are common and can make site access difficult if not impossible. You can see that the effort to develop this place was a long time ago and nature has taken its course since then. As an overnight stop with laundry, it was acceptable for us, with no car. To stay here for any period would require a golf cart, car or truck. In this way you could get to the good stuff to offset the negatives.

Paid $22.50, accepting only cash or check. No credit cards. Nice park but only has 4 transient sites. Our site required wheels in the air to get level. The problem was no power and nobody in office because of the weekend. The voltage was way over the 132 volt limit so the Progressive Industries power management system would shut off to protect our RV. We dry camped.

Date of Stay:

Gravel roads.  Needs signs to indicate which road is for entry and exit. Looks like almost all sites are pull through with full hook-ups.  Reasonably level. No tables, fire pits, or shade. Electric was ok.  WiFi terrific. Water requires pressure reducer.  Fishing pond a big plus.  Great location.

Date of Stay:

One of the more unique layouts.  A big loop with drive-through sites, each with full hook- ups and a grassy area the size of my back yard!

Date of Stay:

Entry road wide and well paved. Buildings and area well cared. Interior road is narrow with broken paving. Gravel sites. Some level sites in rear with ok spacing. Mostly drive-through. Front sites narrow and sloping. Site 61 was 9 inches low front, 5 inches low on right. Power good, cable weak and snowy, water pressure low. Good location for overnight. You really need to know particular sites for longer term stays.

Date of Stay:

Looks like it once was a KOA but now a mess. No roads just tracks in the sand. No site preparation just bare ground. Mosquitos. Some permanent trailers in sad shape. The electric and wi-Fi is good however. This for an overnight stay only.

Robin Hood Woods Camp Resort Entry about a mile on rough, dusty gravel road. About 3/4 of sites are seasonal. Transient sites are unimproved, just natural grass but leveling was easy. Electric was low, around 117 volts. Water was high (65 psi) requiring pressure reducer. Electric service post was rotted out and leaning. Not a great impression. On the good side is: wide sites, good/free Wi-Fi, the very nice pool and catch-and-release fishing on the property. No access to the Shelbyville Reservoir however.  Stay at one of the nearby COE camps for that.

The good: electric, Wi-Fi, staff, Methow River adjacent, proximity to fun town, suitability for trailers and tents. The not good: no site preparation. You park on whatever nature provided.  We asked for level. We were told 1% slope. We got a 6% equal to 9 inches out of level. This not possible for a motorhome without levelers. Also, only one utility post with 20/30/50 amp outlets for two sites. Whoever gets there first gets the 30 amp plug. It also means running electric and water under your unit to reach the hook-ups. There are Dirt/gravel roads. There is no cable TV. It was tight for me to maneuver a 24 ft. motorhome. This is definitely not for big rigs.

Ignore Woodall's notice about being closed for construction. The park has been reworked to accommodate 28 large pull-through rigs.  All these have sewer, water and 30/50 amp electric. Along Swan lake are 45 back-in sites with a view. Hook-ups have cable TV.  Wi-FI is free and works well.  A clear view for Satellite is available from many sites. The pool is immaculate and 81 degrees. Expect a slight slope towards the lake for leveling. Power and water pressure are fine. The roads are paved.  Sites are gravel.  Only the new pull-through sites have grass. The folks in the office are happy and easy. For us, this was an excellent spot for an overnight stop.

Date of Stay:

GoodSam rate. Add to previous entry: sites are a mix of back-in and pull-through, gravel and nearly level, grass for table area, shrubbery separation between sites. Water pressure 50 psi, voltage 120 and changing little under load. Wi-Fi signal is strong but chokes when too many try to get on.

The park is an impressive development over a vast expanse along the lake. The first thing noticed is no big motorhomes, mostly trailers, fifth-wheels and a few class B and C’s. The second noticed thing is how hilly it is in places. Sites here may have long steep back-in ramps. There are some pull-through sites. Expect to do some creative leveling. The electric was excellent on this Memorial Day packed camp. Water pressure was also good. Cell phone was coverage spotty. The beach in the A area is very nice. The individual shower rooms were modern. This is a justifiably popular camp ground which attests to the continuing expansion for more sites and to accommodate larger rigs. If you have a long rig, it is strongly advised to consult with the excellent staff about where to go and the impossibly tight places to avoid.

Getting a satisfactory site was a problem. Asked for a level site. Got one that needed 4 to 5 inches under all four duals plus 2 inches more on one side. Impossible. The next site given needed only 2 to 3 inches under the duals but the electricity would not come on. Open ground. Same with the next site. (The clerk at the office was informed of this shock liability). The last four sites in the row all had grounded electricity at only 115 volts. The site we used was within 2 to 3 inches of level. The Wi-Fi was too weak for practical use.

Date of Stay:

Not in Woodalls. Only advertised locally in Watkins Glenn area. Price given includes Good Sam 10%. This park has the strangest entrance with a dozen or more mud-flap scraping speed bumps. To register you must park 50-75 yards short of the office and walk the rest of the way, also strange. The attraction of this park is being on Lake Cayuta, however the lake front sites have permanent residents except four 30 foot back-in sites with water/electric. Numbers 16 and 17 have 30 amp. Number 18 has 20 amp and 19 is padlocked so I can't tell... again strange. On the next tier up there are full hook-up sites that can accommodate large motorhomes. Our site (#18) was close to level with good electric and water. Two local TV stations. No cable or satellite. The reason for selecting this campground was to use our kayak but after seeing the thick green scum and algae over this end of the lake we said no and left the next morning.

Date of Stay:

$36 plus tax including Good Sam discount. Wi-Fi is good but $2 extra cost. Give no camp information, rules or layout, just lead you to site. Good is the electric, levelness of site, grassy site, water taste and pressure, and Verizon cell service. Site spacing 24 feet. Camp store has a remarkable selection of RV parts. They also advertise RV service. TV limited to four local channels. No cable. At 063 degrees longitude the camp is out of range for DirecTV.

Date of Stay:

Mostly cabins and 12 sites with W/E/S. This place exudes tidyness and care. Just about everything is good; electric, levelness, spacing, water, WiFi, site access, the buildings, pool, grass, etc. The dirt road has no sharp turns but the narrowness and foliage on roadside is a concern. Although possible, this is really not a place for big rigs. It also is a deep woods campground, so no satellite. No cable TV. Has four channels of local TV.
