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

Not real fancy but plenty of room and the area was all grass so there was no dirt or mud. Beautiful river on the property and plenty of room to walk the dogs. We had a few air TV stations and good cell/data signal. A little noise from the highway but very quiet at night. Owners are friendly and very helpful. - travelon

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

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

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.

There are a total of 32 sites in this National Park Service free campground. The sites are large and there is plenty of space between sites. For October, the campground filled up by mid afternoon. - CraftCrazy

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 here during the Father's Day Weekend and as most reviews have stated the park is in need of some serious repair. With all the "annuals" living there it looks more like a mobile home park than a campground. We stayed in site 182b which was a large corner lot. But across the road from us was, as some Google reviews have stated, the "Strickland Hee Haw Gang" About 90% of the campsites on one of the roads is occupied by a member of the Strickland family and with the "home base" being the corner lot across from our site we got to enjoy constant, endless, never ending golf carts back and forth and forth and back. I am serious when I thought I was back in my suburban neighborhood. The folks were nice enough but gimme a break. There is no chance for a camper to get a lakeside lot as they are all occupied by annuals. The trading post is sparsely stocked with not the most friendly of staff. The rest of the staff seemed very friendly. The big draw for us was the really nice pool which we spent at least 8 hours in during the weekend due to our five year old. But the parks infrastructure is substandard at best. The recreation hall is aged in need of some serious upkeep. The roads are navigable but strewn with potholes and some of the sites are downright scary to back into due to erosion. Now don't get me wrong, our stay was pleasant, minus the golfcart 500 which began around 0800 and ended around 2200, and we would more than likely stay again. You definitely feel like an outsider though with all the annuals but we were not there for them. The surrounding area is awesome and offers tons of exploration due to the Natchez Trace Parkway. Our fee for our stay was zero based on Thousand Trails Membership. - Jim in WA
