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

Nice campground with wooded sites, no sewer hookups but convenient dump station. Some sites need leveling but ours was manageable. Campground host was available and helpful. Off air TV reception was minimal. - DrLewie

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

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.

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'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
May 2015 - $22.00
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

I stayed one night while I picked up my trailer from nearby. The host was cordial, helpful and friendly. The park was an open field of grass and trees. electricity and water readily available. It was very quiet.
Access was very easy, to the park and within the park. - Hardrock

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
