Typical Thousand Trails park. Run down roads barely paved, most sites are not full hook up, lots of annuals with most full hookups including 50 amp service. Most sites are 30 amp with no sewer hook ups--water only. We changed our reservation from 4 nights to 2 nights. Could be a nice park, but needs more attention and better management.

Rate reflects Thousand Trails member rate. IMPORTANT: as noted in other reviews, you need to be very careful getting to the campground from the NT Parkway as we saw 2 folks have issues - when you get off the parkway there is an 11 foot overpass that has many RV roof marks on it... It is super simple to avoid though as just to the left is a dirt "bypass" with 13 foot+ clearance. The campground itself is a typical NACO park in that everything is rustic and spread out. The roads are worn-but-paved. There are nice facilities including a pool and mini-golf that has been refurbished, tennis courts (too worn to use), camp store, and other facilities. Also there’s a nice facility called the “Town Hall” which is where a lot of activities happen. Many of the campsites are unsuitable for large rigs but we did not have an issue as it was not very full. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Motorhome.Undo

Apparently this is one of KOAs newest parks. Don’t know how KOA ever approved this mess. Difficult to get to. A mile to get to the KOA sites from the office (it’s still also a Thousand Trails campground). Low electric voltage; no cover on the 30 amp plug, and no outlet switch – switch is live all the time. Low water pressure. No sewer at the site. Poor TV reception – only one network channel. The only positive was very good Wi-Fi. Would not stay here again.

Roads are in disrepair. We camped in off season and very few people here. We are part of zonecamping and the cost reflects that. The lady at the reception area could not have been any friendlier and was that way on the phone when we set up reservations. Top of the Natchez Trail and offered lot of privacy since very few people was here. Will return. No 50 amp service. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Arriving at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails. One exits the parkway and immediately comes to an 11 foot overpass. However, a sort of bypass has been created that gives plenty of clearance. One eases off the pavement onto the gravel beside the road, drives through and then back up onto the road. Once you arrive at the campground and check in you are still a mile and a half or more down a rather worn-but-paved road to the primary Thousand Trails campground. This is away from the pool, mini-golf (needing lots of TLC), tennis courts (needing even more TLC), camp store, and other facilities. However, a quarter of a mile from the actual campground there’s a nice facility called the “Town Hall” which is where a lot of activities happen. A portion of this facility falls under the KOA umbrella. KOA customers can’t use TT campsites and TT members can’t use KOA. None of the KOA sites offer sewer hookups or are close to the lake. Also, there are lots of cabins, so with nice views of the lake. No TT traveler need to expect a lakeside campsite. Those spots are all taken by annual users who have old contracts that pre-date the merger of NACO and Thousand Trails. It may be worth noting that none of the occupied prime lakeside sites have sewer hookups. The rule of thumb is “sewer site=no lake view.” Of course, there are seasonals and annuals occupying many of the full hook up sites too, but if one arrives during the week and not in the middle of a busy weekend they have at least a fair chance of snagging a full hookup/30 amp site. I can’t imagine this place ever being clear full. There are lots of nice campsites for people who are satisfied with a water/electric site. Some of those sites aren’t suitable for a bigger rig, but many of them are. This place clearly needs upgrading: primarily road work, more full hook up sites, 50 amp electric (there’s none), and fresh gravel on the sites. One surprising plus is good Wi-Fi. My Verizon phone signal has been rather poor, but using my Wilson Sleek signal booster it is usable. To us, the draw here is the campground’s being so close to Natchez Trace Parkway. I don’t see it as a destination park aside from it being a good spot to let the kids have freedom to roam and enjoy the playground or simply as a place to enjoy some downtime. I know efforts are being made to catch up on various maintenance concerns and increase the appeal of this park. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Better than normal Thousand Trails. Nice facilities, beautiful lake,and lots of space. Typical of these parks now, annual sites have taken over. There are even multilevel decks, carports, and docks built on site. Most all of the full hookups are taken by these permanent guests. It is beginning to look like a trailer park. So plan to only have water and 30 amp electric. With so many sites, you can find one that is level. They had an excellent 4th of July party and fireworks show, hence the better rating than is truly deserved. Membership rate is 0 (annual dues).

Member rate is -0-. Very nice campground. Big rig access is limited, recommend loop B. Two really big hills before you get to the campsites in loop B. No 50 amp. Not all campsites have sewer. Campground to close end of October for the winter, so not much going on for activities, and CG is nowhere near full. Staff going about their business, but not overly friendly. This CG could be a real jewel, but it needs a major overhaul. So many sites are not even big enough for a pop-up! Many sites are on little "hills" with grassy ditches between you and neighbor. The best sites are taken by seasonals, of course. Most roads are paved, looks like they attempted to fix some of the bad potholes from last year. Bathrooms are very rustic: shower curtains for a door in the toilet area. Over air TV was poor, only received one station ABC. Branches right over RV, so a site in the open probably better reception. Verizon cell 3G, only 1bar. Will return, and hope that they add 50 amp FHU at all sites soon. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Motorhome.Undo

The park looked great when we arrived, with well manicured grass at the entry, a ballpark, playground, and pool. We paid a $3 fee for use of these facilities, but they are so far away from the camping areas that it's impractical to use them for a short stay. There are tent sites, seasonal sites, and overnight sites, plus rental cabins. We were given our choice of sites in the Phase 3 area adjacent to a large lake. The access road to this area was bumpy, narrow, and steep, and all roads were patched, had holes, and were uneven but negotiable. Our area was not well-maintained. The gravel/grass sites were fairly level, but many were overgrown with tall grass and had cracked concrete picnic table pads. Many picnic tables were on the grass, and they had mowed around them, leaving grass grown tall underneath. The first site we checked had sewage spilled on the ground around the sewer connection; the toilet paper and waste had been there a while. Other sites we looked at had damaged water standpipes. One circuit box is shared by two sites, so a longer cord may be required. The bathroom facilities were okay, but in need of some TLC, and ventilation was inadequate for humid mornings. They use shower curtains for toilet stall doors. We could not get a wi-fi signal anywhere but the office area, and our Verizon cell signal was weak. Lots of flies and red ants. We would probably not choose to stay here again, but there aren't many full-hookup options close to this part of the Natchez Trace, and it was so hot and humid we wanted these amenities.

You have to use an underpass to get to the campground and it has an 11’ clearance which is too low for us. Strangely, there is a depressed dirt road right beside the regular road and it provides the additional clearance. This is an old NACO park with no 50A service. We are using 30A but the voltage must be lower than 120 because the A/C is very inefficient, running just better than warm. This park has also crossed the line between sites that are generally available and those that are rented for the season resulting in a very poor selection for those of us just passing through. I’ve never seen such steep inclines in a park before. Road surfaces are rough. Very slow Internet with the Verizon card. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Motorhome.Undo

Friendly staff. Unfortunately the laundry was not working in one site. Grounds were a bit unkempt. Beach and pool clean and busy. Pool at lodge in need of repair. Roads needed work. Only location for Wi-Fi was in the lodge. It was slow! We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Motorhome.Undo

Staff friendly. Campground needs some work. Not sure if we would camp here again. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Most of the sites are in need of some work. Trying to get level was a undertaking. We ended up moving to another site that was slightly more level. Had a difficult time with Verizon coverage but air card worked. TV by antenna didn't occur. Staff were friendly and courteous. This park could use some landscaping detail and road work. Presently the only pool functioning is almost 2 miles from the campsite. They have a very nice Rec Hall in Phase II, too bad they charge to shoot pool. I don't think we would stay here again.

Wow. This park looks wonderful when you look at it from the Ranger Station. Beyond that, it needs big time work. Most of the sites are not usable. Roads have a ton of potholes. Employees don't obey the posted speed limits. Wi-Fi wasn't working, don't know how long it has been down. AT&T phone only works on the hill in front of the Rec Building. The positives: People were friendly, and they serve a good inexpensive breakfast in the Trading Post. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Motorhome.Undo

Do not recall the exact date I was here: tried to review this park before but the review did not come up. Had a wonderful time here. Loved the pool and beach. The rangers were so nice. Some people were not pleased with their sites but, for myself: I was here to camp, not looking for a backyard. Camped right on the water. Site was private and clean. I had no trouble setting up. I have recommended this site to friends and cannot wait to go back again. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Tent.Undo

I was so pleased with my weekend here. The place was very clean. I loved the pool and beach. My tent camping area was right on the water and quiet. Will tell all my friends: this place is the best kept secret around middle Tennessee for a cheap get-away. Felt safe camping here as a single female.
