This is a nice FREE National Park campground right along the Natchez Trace Parkway. No hookups, no water fill or dump station available so arrive prepared. Sites were mostly wooded and paved although many were in need of repair. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Great place to spend a night or 2 along the Trace. Very few sites were occupied when we visited in early May. No Verizon cellular voice or data service. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites not numbered. Free – This campground is in the recreational area of the Rocky Springs Site. No electricity or water but water at the bathrooms. This campground needs some work. Sites need to be leveled and repaved. We had driven down here on the Trace to avoid some violent storms that were going through Jackson for two days and it was a good stop. There were four other campers in the park for the first night and only us for the second. Another camper had told us three weeks earlier the snowbirds heading home on the Trace squeezed 43 RV’s in 19 sites. The Rocky Springs Site and trail in the park is fascinating with the old church, dried out springs and markers for the whole town in the woods. This park is also near Port Gibson which was not burned by Grant because it was too beautiful on his march through MS. The Windsor ruins are worth the drive to go see. If we traveled the Trace again we would stay here for a one night stay. It was very peaceful! Just a note about three hours after we left this campground a tornado was seen heading for it right up the Trace. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice CG and free. But beware, we came in during the annual French Canadian migration north out of their winter spots. We only got a site because someone saw our FL tags and did not want another French Canadian next to him, we pulled in as the other MH pulled out. 22 sites, but there were 36 RV's one night, most sites 2 deep, some with 3. Handicapped site taken and cones moved from empty host site so they could take it. Car parking area held 2 more, some smaller units on the side of road. Totally out of control, will be writing to the NPS about it. A no hookup in Canada cost us $27.50 and they are taking this place over, lots of them stay a couple of weeks at a time. They have some kind of schedule, as some left on morning another pulled right in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is crazy busy Oct 15 - Nov 20 and Mar 15 - Apr 20 when northern "snowbirds" (both Canadian and American) are on migration. When hosts are onsite (Oct 15 - Mar 25), the 10-14 day limit is enforced, but double/triple parking is allowed. Early arrival is encouraged, especially by tent campers. Late November, through early March can be idyllic, if weather cooperates. Lots of birds, small critters, and hiking/bicycling opportunities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Loved this site! We arrived on a Wednesday, which is a good thing, because it was full by Friday morning. The sites are very spacious, private, and shaded- and the bathrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen, complete with running water- unexpected, considering the campsite is free! We stayed in a tent, so I don't know if there were hookups of any kind. A lot of our fellow campers had RV's and ran generators overnight, so I assume no? The campground hosts were great, very friendly and helpful. The only thing to remember is this site is secluded, you will not have cell service and the closest amenities are 30 miles away in any direction..we camped in early March, so perhaps it was too early in the season, but we could not find firewood to purchase ANYWHERE. The hosts were great though, they knew our plight and gave us firewood on the cold nights! Make sure to come prepared with enough food, firewood, etc. and you will love this site. (ps-had to enter $1 for the fee because $0 is not allowed..this campsite is FREE!) We camped here in a Tent.
Beautiful, well maintained campground run by National Park Service. All paved and semi-level sites. Bathrooms, but no hook-ups, showers, or amenities -- just nice dry camping. On the Natchez Trace Parkway about 25 miles south of Jackson and 30 miles north of Natchez, MS. Best of all -- it is pristine and FREE! I only entered $1 above because the website won't let you enter zero. We probably would not have brought our 43' motorcoach here (although there were some nice long pull-throughs), just because of the twists and turns, and because we couldn't explore the trace as well in a larger coach; but in our truck camper, it was just perfect. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
