Oct 2015 - $1.00
We stayed here for three nights on travels down the Natchez Trace. The campgrounds is part of the National Parks services and is free. All sites roads & sites are paved, there is a camp host that is very friendly & helpful. Campground has no services, they do have clean washrooms. This is a very quiet place to stay, it gave us a great location to explore the area from. - JD1040

This was a nice, free campground along the Natchez Trace. Very wooded and good separation between most sites. It could benefit from a campground host since it looked like a couple sites had families living in them, and also to enforce the use of generators during the night. The campground is close to the site where Meriwether Lewis committed suicide and where his grave is. Groceries and other supplies are available in nearby Hohenwald. There is no electricity or dump station, but for a short stay it's ideal. - Marsha D

This campground was great! If you want solitude, level sites, nature sounds to lull you to sleep, this is the park for you. First night, shared the park with 2 other campers in the other loop closest to the restrooms. Didn't even know they were there until kids rode by on their bikes. Clean, large sites, beautiful scenery, a great park for a few day boon-dock stay. Definitely will return. On a cautionary note, there was a reported, but unconfirmed by officials, sighting of a timber rattlesnake. So, wildlife is present. - vagabond woman

Two thumbs down. The bathrooms are filthy and the campsites are uneven and narrow. The electric boxes were going out no one around to fix them. Very disappointed that KOA is associated with this place. - Snoopzq

First of all the roads to get there are a challenge with a bigger rig. Lots of hilly, narrow, and winding roads. Like many Thousand Trails parks they are not easy to get to. Once again, you arrive and hope for good luck finding a site since nothing is guaranteed. You may have a 40' rig and all that's left is a 30' site and that's just your tough luck. The office staff was very friendly. We start through the park looking for a site and within a short distance come up on huge steep grade hills. We unhooked our tow vehicle just because I have never had to climb such a hill with our RV and had no idea what to expect. But, I will say I had no problem going up, but all the interior roads are terrible, lots of pot holes. We found a pull through site that was just okay but it was level. 30 amps only through out the park so you better hope it is not too hot outside. Our picnic table was rotted and warped wood and the concrete patio was broken and cracked all over. Electricity seemed weak, but I did not test it. They have a lake and beach area, but they were out of kayaks or canoes the day day we wanted to rent one. We left early as there was nothing about this place that was fun for us. We did meet the new manager that just arrived, and after speaking with him felt comfortable that he was going to do all he could to improve this park. I would not return to this place. - Highway Star

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. - BbTrombone

I stayed in a "deluxe"cabin for 3 weeks while I had some repairs done, then a week in a regular RV site. The location is just beautiful -- rolling hills, lush and green, picturesque farms. The park itself is large and sprawling, well-maintained except for the potholed roads, which are clearly a challenge to deal with due to the hilly terrain. Hopefully ELS will give them what they need to do a complete resurface. The ranger was super pleasant and helpful.
The little store/cafe isn't very well-stocked -- no basics like milk, eggs, juice, etc (the nearest grocery store is 20+ minutes away). The cafe menu is also very basic and doesn't include fresh fruit or salad. But the staff was very nice.
WiFi in my site near the clubhouse was surprisingly good, but in general phone/hotspot reception is poor. - rushin river

We were pleasantly surprised by this park after reading reviews on other sites. We enjoyed our stay with full hook up service even though it was 30amp only. You drive around, pick your site then notify staff. We stayed off season and while most of the outer loop are annuals, most were not there until the weekend. Bathrooms were clean & well managed. Sites are large gravel pads with concrete patio, spacious & easy to back into. The pool is very nice, but was closed for season. The beach/rec area looked amazing & well maintained. Good Wifi if you park near restrooms or townhall. Rec Room (Town Hall) has free pool table, air hockey, ping pong, & indoor bowling as well as a fitness center with locker rooms with showers and 2 racquetball courts. The arts director, Karen, is AMAZING!! She is the GREATEST art lady we've had yet at a TT park. The whole ranger staff were friendly and very helpful. There is plenty to explore in this area since it is in the middle of the Natchez Trace Parkway and just minutes away from the Meriwether Lewis Monument. We stayed for 2 weeks in a Fifth Wheel with 2 kids.
**As mentioned in the other review there is a VERY LOW (11') bridge to drive under less than a mile from the entrance. However, they have dug out 5-6 feet of ground off the left side of road under the bridge for RV's to pass safely under. It looks deceiving but at 13'4" we made it with ample clearance above our A/C units. - asailors_sweetie

I had a pull thru site (one of four) with full hook up, 30amp. No complaints of the site. Staff is very friendly. The roads are blacktopped with so many patches it's long overdue for a resurfacing. Three sides of this park is surrounded by water and like any other park this is where the permanent campers park.
There was a lot of sites I wouldn't of liked. The amenities are old and worn. The bridge coming in is still 11ft clearance with a area dug out on the east side of the road to 13ft. There is nothing to see or do nearby.
If you want or need anything, bring it with you. It is quite at night. - Lindas Old Man

We stayed for one night while in the area. This wonderful, free campground is situated on the Natchez Trace, close to shopping and services in nearby Hohenwald. Since we were passing through we didn't want to unhitch and found a fairly level pull-through. Very quiet and wooded, the campground did not fill on our weekday visit. - Marsha D

What a gift that the NPS provides a free campground along this beautiful historic parkway. The campground is clean and paved and located in a hardwood forest with numerous marked hiking trails. Garbage cans and fire rings at each site. Water spigots scattered about.
Our only difficulty was that it was hard to find a level site. Most all sites tipped significantly to one side, and it took us awhile to find one that would work even with 4 levels of leveling blocks under 2 tires. Numerous pull through sites . - Tim B.

We chose this campground because it is right across the street from the entrance to the Natchez Trace Parkway. When we pulled in, the only building we saw was a restaurant. It was closed. I called the campground's phone number and was told "I see you. I'm coming." Staff showed up in a golf cart and led us on a narrow gravel road to our site. They don't take credit cards, just cash or check. We had a long, level 50-amp site. The hookups are very far apart. There is no laundry, no over-the-air TV reception and no cable. I found that to be a good thing. We relaxed in the evening. Read books, took walks. Turns out the restaurant is open from 4-9 PM Thursday through Saturday and from 11 AM-3 PM on Sunday. The food is very good. The people here are nice. They treat you as if you've been neighbors for years. We'll stay here again if we return to this area. - mrpeepers

We've stayed at this campground in the past due to it's convenient location. It is under new ownership, and improvements can be seen underway throughout. We were passing through, so finding a level site was important to us. The campground is right off the Natchez Trace and close to Hohenwald. We had water and electric. There is a dump station on-site, however we did not use it. - Marsha D

Came in as an Escapee-- the ad said 15% off $22.00 rate + tax. When I asked about the discount she said it covers the 14% hotel/motel tax, so it is $22.00. So I paid the $22.00--did not want to argue the math (nor the tax she quoted) which according to my calculations should have been about $18. I had trouble finding a level spot and was directed to the fifty amp spot which was reasonably level if I did not try to reach the water. I put water in my holding tank and then positioned myself. She then tried to charge me more for the 50 amp spot. I told her I was only 30amp. Don't think there is WiFi there though the ad says so. She did not tell me of it and I did not see WiFi available. I was not able to get a connection on Verizon but was able to use my cell phone for a hot spot which worked well. The dump station was not level but I appreciated the good water pressure on the hose. The grounds are nice with a park like atmosphere and it is nice for dog walking. - nanzhere

This park is now called Heritage Campground and RV Park. Most of the sites were taken up by workers. This place looks good on the web site, but is in need of much work, it has a lot of potential, but is sadly lacking on completion of projects started. The power was good as was the water quality. The water hook up is in a box at ground level. The sewer hook up was acceptable. If you look at the photos at the redirected website, it looks like two rows of sites..there is only one, the "back" row has no hookups and sewer pipes were laying around on the ground. It is definitely not worth the price charged per night. - Teacher's Pet

We planned to stay at this park for a month till we arrived and saw it in person. It is 'big rig friendly' as far as the length of the pull thrus. The pull thru sites are narrow and you step off into dirt/mud. There are young trees planted in the narrow strip of dirt between sites. Due to placement of the young trees, we could not pull up far enough to hook up to the sewer and also have our slide room out. We connected to the electric and it had no problems. This park is trying to update, but unless they get some width to their sites, it will not be truly big rig friendly. - Camground surveys

This park offers two campgrounds. Campground 1 with primitive sites & Campground 2 with larger RV sites. We stayed in Campground 2. Sites were larger, more spacious, but leveling was an issue at many sites. Took a little longer than normal to level on gravel/dirt site due to ruts. Reserved for a Monday/Tuesday stay and found the Visitor Center (staffing issue), Restaurant and Pool all closed. Only disappointed about the Visitor Center: shame on Tennessee for not having a contingency plan when Student Interns have to leave.
Shorts hikes were nice, and Crockett Falls was a great place to cool off on a hot afternoon. Outside the park, Lawrenceburg was quite a big town that had everything you could want or need.
The Amish Welcome Center should have been closed. Shame on them for luring tourists into what has to be an embarrassment to the Amish Community. It was a filthy, disgusting, junk shop with thrift shop items in it - yuck! - Breezy2

Very nice park. Very pretty bicycle trails, walking trails, water falls. There are cabins and a campground. If they had wifi and sewer, it would be perfect. Great place to camp. - SJBama

It was hard to get around some of the curves in the campground. Most of the sites were very short and unlevel. We had to work a long time to get set up. Trees were close on each side so getting awning and slide out was a challenge. It was quiet and dark which we like. Not sure about getting satellite reception as there are a lot of trees. We would have left the park if we had not been so tired. The park office closes 30 minutes before the official check-in time which is silly. We camped here in a 31 foot class C. - winnie1
