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. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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 . We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

Don't be scared to come into this campground in your motor home. We circled the entire camp in our 39' pulling a toad without a problem. There are many pull through sites, some are a bit tight for slides, but many are fine. All are paved and mostly level. We biked over to the Meriweather Lewis grave site. There were at least half a dozen large motor homes there. ATT and Verizon were 1-2 bars. No satellite due to trees and no TV reception. But it was very clean and best of all, totally free. No hookups or dump station, but there were water spigots near some sites. I would not hesitate to return and it's great if visiting the Trace.

From the previous reviews this sounded like a great place to stay. There are 32 sites, lots are pull throughs, we walked the campground and found only two sites that might take our 40 foot motor home. The first site we could not get our slides out, the second site was marginally better, and after a lot of maneuvering we did get our slides out. It was a challenge with so many trees and low hanging branches, the sites were not huge nor were they a breeze to park a big rig in. It’s a pretty campground, no amenities, but there was a new and spotlessly clean bathroom, and of course it’s free. There seemed to be a lot of junky cars, tattered tents, old RV’s and someone living in a van. There is a 14 day stay limit, but it looked as if many of these folk had been there for a long time. In the short time we were there a couple of RV’s drove through and exited very quickly. We did not feel at all comfortable staying there, so moved onto a better campground. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campsite for free. No sign up, just pull into an empty site. Very quiet and dark without the annoying security lights of RV parks. Good hiking trails along with the interesting Meriwether Lewis monument and pioneer cemetery. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground has just been redone with newly paved roads and pads. The Restrooms looked like new and all the tables and benches were new this spring. PRICE $0 as in NO CHARGE! Can't beat that. Beautiful wooded setting, lots of space between campsites. Many pull through sites that make parking with a big rig a breeze.

Natchez Trace NPS (free) campground at mile marker 385.9. We loved this CG! There are no hookups, but the ambiance makes up for it. The roads and campsites were all recently paved and pretty level; at least half are pull thrus, so great for a stop along the trace. New camp picnic tables at most sites, too. Water spigots in several places, but not at each campsite, as mentioned this is dry camping. There are very clean and spacious (with handicap facilities) restrooms, but as previously mentioned, no showers. There was not a host present while we were there. Batwing antenna received a few stations, and our Verizon phone and broadband both worked, though not a really strong signal. Only 4 campsites occupied of 30 or so, which is quite a shame for such a beautiful campground! The historic park was quite nice, with the grave of Meriwether Lewis (Lewis and Clark)at the park a few miles from the CG. Definitely worth the stop.

Beautiful campground. Level spaces. Many pull-thrus. New, clean, flush-toilet restrooms with soap. The Recovery Act is alive and well at this campground as the campground and the entire Meriwether Lewis area of the Natchez Trace Parkway is being upgraded. Stayed two nights and would loved to have stayed longer. The campground is free; however, the site will not take a zero in the price section so I put in $1.00.

We came in April 14th, and there was plenty of space. No problem for large rigs, roads tight in spots but not a problem. Still all French Canadians headed north, we were the only Americans here. TV via batwing mostly ok, Verizon cell good, broadband barely picked up a signal. Hohenwald is just west on route 20, 7 miles, nice place called Mike's Place just across 412 in town, Walmart is down 412 which goes back to the Trace.

This is a free National Park Service campground. This is a great campground to use while driving the Natchez Trace. Sites are large and very shaded. It is very peaceful, quiet and dark (at night). There is no registration or fee but there is a campground host. There are rest rooms but no showers. Most of the rigs were large and there was plenty of room between sites. If you can dry camp, this is a wonderful campground. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty wooded setting, very quiet in November which was nice. Bathrooms clean enough but simple, no showers or hook-ups but also no fees. There was a water spigot for filling tanks near the bathrooms. Sites nearer the bathroom are more level than the other sites (about #1 through 11) not all sites are big rig friendly but some would probably be fine. This is a wonderful place to stay while exploring the Natchez Trace Parkway. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

Busy place, no hook-ups, no showers and one shabby bathroom far from a number of sites, but can't beat price and location. Lots of trees and right on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Some sites looked large enough for bigger rigs but not sure if they would accommodate 40+ footers, we have a 30 ft class A and all sites were big enough for us. We would stay here again.
