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. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an excellent FREE National Park campground along the Natchez Trace Parkway with paved sites, widely spaced, many pull through, all situated in a beautiful wooded setting. Rest rooms were modern and clean. Water taps were available in the campground but no dump station is provided. Verizon cell and data signal were available (3G) but not super fast. Very few sites were occupied when we visited in early May. If you like camping without hookups, this is as good as it gets. Each site had a picnic table, fire ring and NPS allows you to scavenge for campfire wood. Excellent visitor center and Meriwether Lewis monument adjoin the campground. Rate entered as $1 because $0 not an allowable value. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Travel Trailer.

This a wonderful clean quiet campground, with widely spaced sites, picnic tables, fire pits and water available. Good selection of hiking trails and the information display at the museum is very well done. Don't miss the cemetery. One of my favorite campgrounds and it is free. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Motorhome.

We stopped at the Meriwether Lewis campground around noon and boy were we lucky to get a site. This campground is free (one of three on the parkway) and they were paving one of the two loops so campers could only camp in the first 15 sites. I have read before that the “snowbird” Canadians drive up the trace heading home and that they take most of the sites sometimes even doubling up and even save sites for their friends. I can’t believe the NPS allows this! There were only three sites left and fifteen minutes after we were settled five other RVs rolled in. Two of them could not fit in the remaining two sites so they moved on. All sites were taken within fifteen minutes of us getting here yet during the rest of the day others kept on driving through – 10 of the 15 sites were Canadians. There is a big parking lot with restrooms, water and picnic tables that they use for an overflow area. No electricity but it is free and very peaceful! Really enjoyed the drive today once we got on the trace – so relaxing especially since not one other camper or car was heading south everyone else was heading north! This was just a one night stop for us but we would return. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Motorhome.

This park could have a bunch of ratings (other than the 8 out of 10 we gave it): Access - 6 because it is out of the way. Unless you are a local, it is in the middle of nothing. Nothing? you say? How about the Natchez Trace? Well, we were underwhelmed by the sights to see. Also, the park is old and roads are a little tight, but our 38' motorhome did fine. The sites are huge. They advertise that there are back ins only and 15X30 site sizes. Not so...there are plenty of pull-thrus for large rigs. Cost - 10; It is FREE! Yes, FREE! Ambiance 12 (out of 10); It is a lovely park...large oaks, quiet...there were never more than 6 occupants during our 4 day stay. Facilities - There aren't any; just water fountains spaced throughout the park, and a bathhouse. To sum, I would definitely come here again If I were going to be in the area. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Motorhome.

We stopped off here on a three day trip up the Natchez Trace Parkway. This is a very pretty park. There isn't much to do in the campground. You just pull in and pick out a site. No registration or fees. But, there are also no amenities. There are some neat things to see in the immediate area. The park is at milepost 385.9 on the Natchez Trace in Tennessee. We enjoyed our one night stay here. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Fifth Wheel.
